My personal scale has died, so I'm in the market for a new one. Any tips?

I really don't need to measure anything except for my basic weight, but I love gadgets and would enjoy having a few bells and whistles added. My last scale measured fat and water percentages, and it would be cool to have something similar. I've also seen scales which allow you to track your measurements online, but I am loath to spend the money without a recommendation.
Bonus points for brands I can buy here in the Netherlands (though I would like to hear the pros and cons of your scale even if you're in another country). My last scale was a Soehnle. It seemed fine and lasted about six years before succumbing to a known software fault. I'm not sure if this is par for the course or if Soehnle is to be avoided. Basically, any info you could throw my way would be appreciated as Google turns up an overwhelming amount of information, most of which refers to outdated models.
