Well Ozeri was true to their word. They sent me a brand new unit which arrived Tuesday. I didn’t get a chance to check them out until ‘today’ [i.e., Wednesday, though it is now Thursday as I write this].

It works. Works perfectly. Its readings are 0.4 pounds higher than that of the ‘BalanceFrom‘. That was consistent for both Deanna and I, and was still the same 0.4 delta after my run. Of course we can’t tell which one is correct! That is why spacecraft have 3 computers — because with two of anything, either can be right. No big deal. That is 6.4 ounces. I am not that worried.

I could be wrong but the new Ozeri’s BMI reading is higher than what I think was the readings with the older one. That might be a good thing. I had always thought that the BMI readings were a tad on the low side. According to the new unit I am ’24’ — which puts me smack in the middle of the ‘normal’ range for old men. I think overweight starts at 28. I don’t have the manual at hand.

So, I am happy. I am not going to return the ‘BalanceFrom’ to Amazon. That would be unethical. So we are going to keep both. I am keeping the ‘BalanceFrom’. Now that I am at (or below) 169 I really am not worried about BMI etc. I just want my weight. So the Ozeri is going to be in the other bathroom, which is next door.

Thanks Ozeri. I am impressed.
