We got some one-on-one time with Samsung’s new Myfit player at CES today. The Myfit is geared more toward helping you reach your fitness goals than playing media– although it’s quite capable of that as well.

MyFit features a 2.4” 320×240 TFT display, FM radio and a respectable 40 hour battery life (5 video). Where MyFit really shines is with its fitness oriented features, such as the food library which will provide you with basic nutrition info on that greasy burger you’re about to wolf down. And to help you burn that burger off, there’s a library of 90 activities, which it will audibly talk you through.

The most interesting part of the MyFit, however, is its sensors. There’s a sensor on the top which is capable of checking your pulse and stress levels, and the player will recommend songs based on your current stress level. It has an accelerometer to track your steps and calories burned. The player can also analyze body fat by pressing the top of the player to the area you want analyzed– although, we’re not exactly sure how it accomplishes this. Sorcery, we assume.
