Default scales that show not only fat % but also water %

I've been seeing these around a lot, and think they would really help me since I have issues with retaining water and getting discouraged when the number on the scale changes because of that. Does anybody have any experience with one? Any recommendations? I have an old $20 scale from Home Depot (it's actually a Weight Watchers brand scale) and maybe it's time for a change. Discuss? I definitely don't want to spend a lot of money.

I'm hopping someone has had experience with one as well. I just wonder how accurate they are.

I have a Taylor one that has body fat on it, but don't use that function because it's terribly inaccurate. I've had my body fat tested with calipers and bioimpedence and get get good readings, but my scale shows much higher in an undesirable range.

Sorry, I've never used one of these. But, you could try going to amazon.com and typing in the name of a scale you're interested in and then read some of the reviews. I love doing that when I'm considering a new purchase!
