 I have the seem scale. It is wonderful. Never makes a mistake and I have droped it a few times...opps. I like how it tells you your bmi, water weight and bone mass. It was wroth the 50 bucks. Mine is glass as well.

Get a new digital scale.  I'd recommend the ones with the thick glass top--it helps prevent moisture damaging the electronics over time.  Check the batteries they take too--I made sure I got one that takes AA batteries instead of those pricey round batteries.  I'd avoid the $20 scales too--I opted for one that was around $40-45.

Thank you,  Dave! 

Great tip on the thick glass. . . that is not something I would have thought of, or checking the battery size!!!

I don't mind paying a little more for a good scale; I just want it to work lol.  The one I got and took back was from Target.  I don't remember the brand, but it was digital and looked great but I paid $40 for it and couldn't get the same weight twice!

Seriously-I have a Weigh****chers brand scale-had it for years and it is accurate and matches my doctor's scale.

It doesn't take batteries though-I guess it has one built in....must be a good one because I've had this scale for over 5 years...and it still works beautifully.

I keep it in the basement in a corner of my workout room-that keeps me from weighing every day.  I go down on Friday mornings and weigh.
