(Step S103).

  In this step S103, the title and characteristic information of the reproducible music data are read and acquired from, for example, a recording medium (recording medium) of the music information storage device unit 21, or via the communication I / F 61. It is possible to connect to a network and acquire from a database formed in a server device on the network. In addition, when the title and characteristic information of music data that can be played back by this sound playback device are acquired from a database on the network, it can be searched and acquired based on the identification information of the music data that can be played back. To be.

  The music data itself stored and held in the recording medium of the music information storage unit 21 is also obtained from a medium such as a CD, or from a database on the network, from the communication I / F 61, the transmission / reception antenna 63, and the transmission / reception circuit 62. Through the external terminal 51 and the I / F 52.

  In step S103, the list of reproducible music data (reproduced music information) displayed on the display screen of the display unit 34 is, for example, reproducible music data (music data) as shown in FIG. Title (song), playback time (performance time (shown as “length” in the figure))), tempo (speed of music signal, in this embodiment, the number of beats per minute. ) Etc.

  And the control part 10 receives the selection input of the music data which a user desires to reproduce | regenerate through the key operation part 41, and determines the music data to reproduce | regenerate according to this (step S104). In this case, it is unnecessary when all the reproducible music data is reproduced, but the control unit 10 displays a list (reproduced music list) of those determined as music data to be reproduced through the display circuit 33 through the display unit 34. To be displayed on the display screen.

  FIG. 4 is a diagram for explaining an example of a reproduction music list. For example, when it is desired to continuously exercise with a certain intensity from the beginning to the end for a relatively long time, the same music data may be reproduced repeatedly. For example, when it is determined that the music piece A is repeatedly played 50 times, the control unit 10, as shown in FIG. 4A, plays the title of music data to be played, the playback time (in FIG. The reproduction music list 1 composed of the music tempo and the number of times of reproduction is formed and displayed on the display screen of the display unit 34 through the display circuit 33 to notify the user.

  4A, so that song A having a playback time (length of song A) of 1 minute and 11 seconds and a tempo of 100 is played 50 times continuously by the playback song list 1 shown in FIG. 4A. The user can be notified of the decision. Since the length of the song A is 1 minute and 11 seconds, when the song A is repeated 50 times, the song A is repeatedly played for about 60 minutes and exercised in accordance with the song A to obtain a predetermined strength. The user can be guided to continue the exercise for about 60 minutes.

  In some cases, it is desirable to gradually increase the intensity of the exercise, keep it constant in the middle, and then gradually decrease it. In such a case, first, the music data having a relatively fast tempo is reproduced from the music data having a relatively slow tempo, and the reproduction of the music data having a predetermined tempo is continued for a certain period. The music data with a slow tempo is gradually reproduced from the reproduction of the fast music data.

  Specifically, as shown in FIG. 4B, song A is 5 times-> song C is 1 time-> song B is 1 time-> song D is 1 time-> song E is 30 times-> song B is 2 times-> song C 1 time → song F 1 time, so that it is determined to play sequentially, as mentioned above, gradually increase the exercise intensity, then keep constant and then gradually decrease In the meantime, the user can be guided so that the intensity of exercise intensity can be controlled naturally.

  As described above, in accordance with the instruction input from the user that is received through the key operation unit 41, the sound reproduction device according to the present embodiment receives the music data to be reproduced, the number of times of reproduction, and the reproduction order through the key operation unit 41. It can be determined according to the operation input from the user.

  Then, after the music data to be played, the number of times of playback, the playback order, and the like are determined by the process of step S104, the control unit 10 receives the playback start instruction input through the key operation unit 41 and plays back to step S104. Playback of the determined music data is started (step S105). The user can perform the exercise continuously without difficulty by performing a predetermined exercise such as walking or jogging according to the music reproduced by the process of step S105.

  Then, the control unit 10 monitors the processing state of the own device and determines whether or not music is being reproduced (step S106). If it is determined in step S106 that the music is being played back, the recording device 53 records the information such as the title, playback time, and tempo of the music data being played back (playback music information) as playback history information. The data is stored in the medium (step S107), and the processing from step S106 is repeated.

  In the determination process of step S106, when the control unit 10 determines that the reproduction of the music data has been completed, the control unit 10 controls the exercise information analysis circuit 23 and records it on the recording medium of the storage device unit 53 in step S107. Performed by the user based on the reproduction history information obtained and the personal profile information and exercise information including the weight, height, age, sex, etc. of the user acquired in the processing of step S101 and step S102 and temporarily stored in the RAM 13. The amount of exercise of the selected exercise is calculated (step S108).

  In the sound reproduction apparatus of this embodiment, as will be described in detail later, exercise time, walking distance (movement distance), average speed when exercise such as walking or jogging is performed in accordance with the music to be reproduced. Then, values such as calories burned and fat burning amount are calculated in the process of step S108. Since the type (type) of exercise performed in step S102 is input, it is possible to calculate the amount of exercise according to the exercise performed according to the information.

  Then, the control unit 10 controls the display circuit 33 to display information indicating the amount of exercise of the user obtained in step S108 on the display screen of the display unit 34 (step S109), and performs the processing shown in FIG. finish. FIG. 5 is a diagram for explaining an example of a display screen of exercise amount information provided by display to the user in step S109. As shown in FIG. 5, in the sound reproducing device of this embodiment, when the reproduction of music data is completed, a display including information such as exercise time, walking distance, average speed, calories burned, and fat burning amount is performed.

  In the case of the example shown in FIG. 5, a user who exercises, for example, walks according to the reproduced music, moves for 30 minutes, moves 3 km at an average speed of 6 km / h (km / h), As a result, a heat amount of 150 kcal (kilocalories) is consumed, and 20 grams of fat is combusted. In addition, a message to display exercise amount information is displayed on the upper end side of the screen, and a message “Thank you very much!” Is displayed on the lower end side of the screen.

  Thus, a user who has performed a predetermined exercise in accordance with the music reproduced by the sound reproducing apparatus can objectively and easily grasp how much he / she has exercised. As a result, the appropriate amount of exercise, and how much exercise should be done in the future, etc. when the prescribed exercise, such as walking or jogging, is performed at the approximate amount of exercise, how much time and how much intensity. Will be able to judge.

  The personal profile information temporarily stored in the RAM 13 and the exercise amount information calculated in step S108 are stored and held in the storage device unit 53 together with the reproduction history information, thereby performing various analyzes later. To be able to.

[How to calculate various momentum]
Next, an example of the various momentum calculation processes performed in step S108 shown in FIG. 2 will be specifically described. As described above, here, various amounts of exercise are calculated when a predetermined exercise is performed in accordance with the music reproduced by the sound reproduction apparatus of this embodiment. In this calculation process, calculation is performed based on personal profile information such as weight, height, age, and sex input by the user, and characteristic information including reproduction time and tempo of reproduced music data.

  First, the exercise time is the same as the music data playback time. Therefore, it is possible to calculate the exercise time by knowing which music data has been played and how many times. Further, when audio data determined to be reproduced is reproduced, this reproduction time is measured using a clock circuit (timer) connected to the control unit 10 although not shown in FIG. Can also be specified.

  Next, the walking distance can be calculated based on the personal profile information and the characteristic information of the reproduced music data. FIG. 6 is a diagram for explaining the calculation of the walking distance. As shown in the equation (1) in FIG. 6, it is known that the human stride is a length corresponding to about 45% of the height. The walking distance can be obtained by multiplying the stride and the number of steps as shown in the equation (2) in FIG.

  Therefore, for example, as shown in FIG. 6, the walking distance when a person with a height of 170 cm matches the music of the tempo 120 for 2 minutes 30 seconds or the case is as shown in the equation (3) of FIG. , Stature is calculated by calculating height x 0.45, and walking is performed according to music with a tempo (beats per minute) of 120, so it is walking about 120 steps per minute As shown in FIG. 6, the walking distance per minute is obtained by multiplying the step length by 120 steps (times), and this is multiplied by the exercise time (exercise duration) of 2 minutes 30 seconds. Thus, the walking distance can be calculated to be 229.5 m.

  Next, although it is the average speed at the time of exercise, it can be calculated based on the exercise time and the walking distance that can be obtained as described above. FIG. 7 is a diagram for explaining the calculation of the average speed of movement during exercise. Since the speed can be obtained by way / time, the average speed can be obtained by dividing the walking distance by the exercise time as shown in the equation (4) in FIG. Therefore, the average speed when walking 3 km in 30 minutes can be calculated to be 6 km / h (6 km / h) by the calculation shown in equation (5) in FIG.

  Next is calorie consumption (energy consumption). This includes a method of calculating based on energy consumption per minute and a METS (Metabolic Equivalents) value, which is a value indicating the exercise intensity determined for each exercise. It is possible to use the method of calculating by using.

  FIG. 8 is a diagram for explaining a case where energy consumption is obtained using energy consumption per minute. As shown in the equation (6) of FIG. 8, the energy consumption Wmin per minute is obtained by adding the speed during exercise to the constant value “35”, and the weight of the exerciser is added to the constant value “2000”. It can be obtained by dividing by the value multiplied by. By multiplying the energy consumption Wmin per minute thus obtained by the total exercise time (minutes), the energy consumption (calorie consumption) consumed by the exercise for the total exercise time can be calculated.

  As shown in FIG. 8, when a person with a weight of 68 kg walks for 60 minutes at a speed of 100 meters per minute (100 m / min), first, when calculating calorie consumption (7 in FIG. ) The energy consumption Wmin per minute is obtained as shown in the equation. Then, as shown in the equation (8) in FIG. 8, the total energy consumption in this case can be obtained by multiplying the obtained energy consumption Wmin per minute by 60 minutes, which is the total exercise time. The energy consumption (calorie consumption) in this example is 275.4 kcal.

  Moreover, FIG. 9 is a figure for demonstrating the case where energy consumption is calculated | required using the METS value which is a value which shows the exercise intensity defined for every exercise | movement. The METS value, which will be described in detail later, is a value indicating the exercise intensity obtained in advance for each type of exercise. For example, as shown in FIG. 9, if walking, the METS value is 4 to 7, jogging. Then, the METS value is known as a value when 7 to 15 exercise effectively.

  And when calculating | requiring energy consumption using a METS value, as shown to (9) Formula of FIG. 9, it can obtain | require by multiplying an exerciser's weight, a MESTS value, and exercise time. For example, the energy consumption (calorie consumption) when a person weighing 60 kg performs an exercise of 5METS for 30 minutes can be obtained as 150 kcal as shown in the equation (10) of FIG.

  Thus, the energy consumption (calorie consumption) at the time of exercise is calculated | required by using the energy consumption per minute, or using the METS value which is a value which shows the exercise intensity defined for every exercise | movement. be able to. As shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, the energy consumption can be considered to be the same as the weight, which is one of the personal profile information of the athlete, and the music data playback time in the sound playback device of this embodiment. It can be calculated by using information such as possible exercise time (exercise duration) and speed that can be calculated by using this exercise time.

  Further, the fat burning amount can be calculated by using the energy consumption described with reference to FIGS. FIG. 10 is a diagram for explaining a case where the amount of fat combustion is obtained. As shown in FIG. 10, it is known that about 7700 kcal of energy is consumed to burn 1 kg (kilogram) of fat.

  Therefore, in order to obtain the fat burning amount, as shown in the equation (11) of FIG. 10, the consumed energy (kcal) is divided by 7700 kcal, which is the energy necessary for burning 1 kg of fat, It can be determined by multiplying 1000 g (grams) for unit alignment. Then, as described with reference to FIG. 8, when it is known that 275.4 kcal of energy has been consumed by the exercise, the calculation shown in the equation (12) of FIG. It can be calculated that .77 g (gram) of fat has been burned.

  Thus, the exercise time, walking distance, average speed, energy consumption (calorie consumption), and fat burning amount are personal profile information of the user who exercises while listening to the music reproduced by the sound reproduction apparatus of this embodiment. And the characteristic information of the reproduced music data. In the process of step S108 of the process shown in FIG. 2, the calculation process described with reference to FIGS. 6 to 10 is performed, and in step S109, the display is performed as shown in FIG. The amount of exercise information to be notified can be calculated.

[About the METS value]
Here, the METS value used in the calculation of the energy consumption described with reference to FIG. 9 will be described. 11 and 12 are diagrams for explaining the METS value. The METS value is a value obtained by dividing the oxygen intake during exercise by the oxygen intake during rest as shown in the equation (13) in FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 11, the resting oxygen consumption (resting oxygen uptake) is “R”, the horizontal movement element that is the oxygen uptake when moving in the horizontal direction is “H”, and the vertical direction. Let V be the vertical movement element that is the amount of oxygen uptake when the movement is accompanied. The horizontal movement element during walking can be obtained by (0.1 × speed) as shown in the equation (15) in FIG. 11, and the horizontal movement element during running is represented by (16) in FIG. As shown in the equation, it can be obtained by (0.2 × speed). Further, the vertical motion element can be obtained by (0.9 × speed × tilt) as shown in the equation (17) in FIG.

  The oxygen intake during exercise can be obtained as (R + H + V) as shown in the equation (14) in FIG. 11, and the resting oxygen intake is represented by R as described above. The METS value can be obtained by performing the calculation of (R + H + V) / R as shown in the equation (13) in FIG. As shown in FIG. 11, 1METS corresponds to an oxygen consumption amount of 3.5 ml / kg · min (milliliter / kilogram · minute), which is the same as the oxygen consumption amount at rest.

  Next, a specific calculation example of the above-described METS value will be described. Consider two examples, as shown in FIG. First, consider the case of calculating the walking METS value at a speed of 6 km / h. As described with reference to FIG. 11, the METS value can be calculated if the resting oxygen intake R, the horizontal movement element H, and the vertical movement element V are known. Since the resting oxygen intake R is known to be 3.5 ml / kg · min as shown in FIG. 11, the METS value can be calculated if the horizontal movement element H and the vertical movement element V are known.

  And in the case of walking, the horizontal movement element H can be calculated | required by (0.1 * minute speed) as shown to (15) Formula of FIG. Therefore, since the speed per minute in the case of walking at 6 km / h is 100 m / min, the horizontal movement element H is calculated to be 10.0 ml / kg · min according to the equation (18) in FIG. Can do. On the other hand, the vertical movement element V is obtained by (0.9 × minute speed × tilt) as shown in the equation (17) in FIG. However, in the case of walking on a flat place, there is generally no inclination during exercise. Therefore, as shown in the equation (19) in FIG. 12, the inclination is 0 rad (%), and the vertical movement element V is 0. (Zero).

  By adding the resting oxygen intake R, the horizontal movement element H, and the vertical movement element V obtained as described above as shown in the equation (20) of FIG. 12, the oxygen intake during exercise can be obtained. This is divided by the resting oxygen uptake R as shown in the equation (21) in FIG. 12, and a MET value of “3.9” can be obtained. That is, the METS value of walking at 6 km / h is required to be “3.9”.

  Next, consider a case where the METS value for jogging at a speed of 10 km / h is calculated. Also in this case, as in the case of the walking described above, since the resting oxygen intake R is already known, the METS value can be calculated if the horizontal movement element H and the vertical movement element V are known. Since the running speed at a speed of 10 km / h is 166.7 m / min, the horizontal movement element H is 33.34 ml / kg · min as shown in the equation (22) in FIG. Can be calculated.

  On the other hand, in the case of running, as in the case of walking, there is generally no inclination during exercise. Therefore, the inclination is 0 rad (%) as shown in the equation (23) in FIG. Element V is 0 (zero).

  The oxygen intake during exercise can be obtained by adding the resting oxygen intake R, horizontal movement element H, and vertical movement element V as shown in the equation (24) of FIG. As shown in the equation (25) in FIG. 12, by dividing by the resting oxygen intake R, a METS value of “10.5” can be obtained. That is, the METS value for running at 10 km / h is required to be “10.5”.

  In this manner, for each type of exercise, a METS value that is the exercise intensity when the exercise is performed can be obtained. And when calculating | requiring energy consumption using the METS value calculated | required as mentioned above, as shown to (9) Formula of FIG. 9, it can calculate | require by weight * METS value x exercise time.

  Then, as shown in FIG. 13, the energy consumption (calorie consumption) when a person with a weight of 60 kg runs on a flat place at a speed of 10 km / h (speed of 166.7 m / min) for 30 minutes using the METS value. Consider the case where In this case, as shown in the equation (26) in FIG. 13, first, a MET value is obtained by calculating (3.5 + 166.7 × 0.2) /3.5, The energy consumption can be calculated as “315.77 kcal” by multiplying the weight (60 kg) and the time ((30/60) hours).

  In addition, if the calculation formula of the consumption energy using a METS value is shown in detail, it can show as shown in FIG. For example, consider the case of walking. First, as shown in the equation (27) in FIG. 14, the speed of one exercise (speed for taking one step) Vi is set to the stride Ww for one exercise time (time taken to take one step). It can be obtained by dividing by Ti.

  If the speed Vi of one motion is known, the horizontal movement element can be obtained as described with reference to FIG. In the case of an exercise at a place with an inclination, if the inclination is known, a vertical movement element can also be calculated. However, in the case of walking on a flat place, there is usually no inclination, so if the horizontal movement component is known, the MET value of one exercise can be obtained according to the equation (13) in FIG. .

  Then, as shown in the equation (28) in FIG. 14, the exercise time is obtained by multiplying the weight Weight, the METS value METS (Vi) obtained from the speed Vi of one exercise, and the time Ti of one exercise. By taking the sum of minutes, the energy consumed by the exercise can be calculated. 14 can be summarized as shown in equation (29) in FIG.

  In addition, when the representative one of the METS values is increased, the METS value of walking at 3.2 km / h is 2 to 3, the METS value of walking at 4.8 km / h is 3 to 4, and the walking speed is 3 to 4 The MET value for walking at 6.4 km / h is 5-6, and the MET value for walking at 8 km / h is 6-7.

  The METS value for jogging at 8 km / h is 7 to 8, the METS value for jogging at 10 km / h is 11, and the METS value for jogging at 12 km / h is 12.5. In addition, although the METS value is required for various exercises, cycling, aerobic dance, jumping rope, racquetball, and the like are exercises having a relatively high METS value.

  In this way, if you know the personal profile information such as the weight, height, and stride of the user who performed the exercise, and the attribute information such as the tempo of the music that was played during the exercise, the exercise information such as the user's exercise amount can be obtained. It can be obtained simply, quickly and accurately, and can be provided to a user who has performed exercise, stored and analyzed, and the like. In addition, when the personal profile information includes detailed information such as age and sex, the exercise information can be calculated and used in more detail and accurately.

[When obtaining the amount of exercise performed by the user in consideration of the detection output from the exercise information sensor mounted on the sound reproducing device]
In the above-described example, the amount of exercise of the user who has performed walking or jogging in accordance with the reproduced music is calculated using the tempo of the reproduced music. However, as described above with reference to FIG. 1, the sound reproducing device of this embodiment includes the motion information sensor 24. For this reason, it is possible to detect the tempo of the user's exercise based on the detection output from the exercise information sensor 24 and obtain the user's exercise amount more accurately.

  Further, by using information from the exercise information sensor 24, it is possible to grasp the tempo of the actual exercise of the user and change the tempo of the music to be reproduced. For example, when the tempo of exercise decreases, the tempo of the music being played can be increased, or when the tempo of exercise increases, the tempo of the music being played can be decreased. Become. Also in this case, since the user's exercise tempo can be accurately grasped by the exercise information sensor 24, the user's exercise amount can be obtained accurately.

  FIG. 15 shows the music data to be reproduced from the amount of exercise set in advance in the sound reproducing device of this embodiment when exercising using the sound reproducing device of this embodiment shown in FIG. It is a flowchart for demonstrating the process which made it possible to obtain | require the exercise | movement amount of exercise | movements, such as walking and jogging which the user performed while producing | generating and reproducing | regenerating.

  First, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device of this embodiment, through the key operation unit 41, personal profiles such as the user's weight, height (step length), age, and gender necessary for calculating the amount of exercise of the user. An information key input is accepted and stored in the RAM 13 or the like (step S201). The information such as weight and height input here is information necessary for calculating the amount of exercise such as calories burned and walking distance (exercise distance), and the age and gender are for display at the end of exercise, for example. Necessary information.

  Next, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device receives input of target energy consumption (target exercise amount) and exercise mode that the user intends to consume by exercise (step S202). The motion mode is, for example, a constant mode (Constant mode) that performs a constant speed (constant load) motion, a random mode (Random mode) that performs a motion with randomly changing speed (load), or a speed (load) gradually. There is a hill mode (Hill mode) in which it is exercised to keep it constant during the movement and then gradually decrease the intensity, depending on the load pattern applied to the user.

  It is also possible to input the type (type) of exercise such as walking, jogging, and running. As described above, when the type of exercise to be performed is input, it is possible to appropriately grasp the target exercise amount in consideration of the intensity of the exercise to be performed.

  After that, the control unit 10 of the sound playback apparatus acquires the title of music data that can be played, characteristic information such as playback time and tempo (step S203), and plays back the music according to the target energy consumption, exercise mode, and type. A list is generated and provided to the user by displaying a list on the display unit 34, for example (step S204).

  In step S204, a reproduction music list as shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B is generated. That is, FIG. 4A corresponds to an example of a reproduction music list when the target energy consumption is 500 kcal and the exercise mode is a constant pace, and FIG. 4B includes increase and decrease of exercise intensity including warm-up and cool-down. Is equivalent to an example of

  Next, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device determines whether or not to change the tempo of the music being played through the key operation unit 41 according to the detection result of the motion information sensor 24 (the tempo of the reproduced music at the time of playback). An instruction input of “with / without change” is received (step S205). If you select a mode that changes the playback tempo, the tempo of the music (music) to be played changes according to the tempo or rhythm of the exercise, but if you select a mode that does not change the playback tempo, the motion sensor This information is used for calculation to accurately obtain momentum information.

  Then, the control unit 10 of the sound playback device controls each unit to start playback of the music data picked up in the playback music list and prompts the user to start exercise (step S206). The motion information analysis circuit 23 of the sound reproducing device acquires the detection output from the motion information sensor 24 (step S207), and calculates the tempo or rhythm of the user's motion based on the detection output from the motion information sensor 24. This is supplied to the control unit 10 (step S208).

  Based on the calculation result (analysis result) from the exercise information analysis circuit 23, the control unit 10 determines whether or not it is necessary to change the tempo of the music being played back (step S209). In this step S209, for example, if the difference between the user's exercise tempo and the tempo of the music being played is large, it is determined that the tempo of the music being played needs to be changed, and the user If the difference between the tempo of the exercise and the tempo of the music being played is small or has not occurred, it is determined that there is no need to change the tempo of the music being played.

  If it is determined in step S209 that it is necessary to change the tempo of the music being played back, the control unit 10 controls the music playback data generation unit 22 to play back the music data being played back. Is performed to change the tempo of the music being played back (step S210).

  After the process of step S210, or in the determination process of step S209, when it is determined that there is no need to change the tempo of the music being played back, the control unit 10 monitors the processing state of the own device and It is determined whether or not reproduction is in progress (step S211). When it is determined in step S211 that music is being played back, information such as the title, playback time, and tempo of the music data being played back (playback music information) is used as playback history information, and the tempo of exercise or Information such as the rhythm and the number of steps is stored in the recording medium of the recording device unit 53 as exercise history information (step S212), and the processing from step S207 is repeated.

  In the determination process of step S211, when the control unit 10 determines that the reproduction of the music data has been completed, the control unit 10 controls the exercise information analysis circuit 23 and records it on the recording medium of the storage device unit 53 in step S212. Based on personal profile information and exercise information including weight, height, age, sex, etc. of the user obtained in the processing of the reproduction history information and exercise history information, step S201, step S202 and temporarily stored in the RAM 13 As described with reference to FIGS. 6 to 14, the amount of exercise performed by the user is calculated (step S213).

  Also in this step S213, values such as exercise time, number of steps, walking distance (movement distance), average speed, calorie consumption, fat burning amount, etc. when exercise such as walking or jogging is performed according to the music to be reproduced. calculate. Note that the energy consumption (calorie consumption) can be easily and accurately obtained by the calculation formula shown in FIG. Then, the control unit 10 controls the display circuit 33 to display information indicating the amount of exercise of the user obtained in step S213 on the display screen of the display unit 34 (step S214), and performs the processing shown in FIG. finish.

  FIG. 16 is a diagram for explaining an example of a display screen of exercise amount information provided by display to the user in step S214. As shown in FIG. 16, in the sound reproducing device of this embodiment, when the reproduction of music data is finished, a display including information such as exercise time, number of steps, walking distance, average speed, calories burned, and fat burning amount is displayed. Do.

  In the case of the example shown in FIG. 16, a user who has performed exercise, for example, walking in accordance with the reproduced music, has 10,000 steps by exercising for 30 minutes, with an average speed of 6 km / h (km per hour). It travels a 3km road, thereby consuming 150kcal (kilocalories) of heat and notifying that 20 grams of fat has been burned. In addition, a message to display exercise amount information is displayed on the upper end side of the screen, and a message “Thank you very much!” Is displayed on the lower end side of the screen.

  As described above, by using the information from the exercise information sensor 24, it is possible to grasp the tempo of the actual exercise of the user and change the tempo of the music to be reproduced. Even in this case, since the tempo of the user's exercise can be accurately grasped by the exercise information sensor 24, the amount of exercise of the user can be accurately obtained.

  In this example as well, personal profile information input by the user, exercise information, and the amount of exercise information calculated in step S213 are also stored in the storage device 53, so that analysis after the end of exercise, etc. It is possible to use it.

[When the music data to be reproduced is selected and determined based on a preset amount of exercise, and the amount of exercise is calculated using characteristic information of the reproduced music data]
Next, referring to FIG. 17 to FIG. 20, a description will be given of a case where music data to be reproduced is selected and determined based on a preset amount of exercise, and the amount of exercise is calculated using characteristic information of the reproduced music data. To do.

  FIG. 17 shows processing in the sound reproducing apparatus when selecting and determining sound data to be reproduced from a preset amount of exercise (target momentum) when exercising using the sound reproducing apparatus shown in FIG. It is a flowchart for demonstrating. The process shown in FIG. 17 is substantially the same as the process shown in FIG. 15 except for the process related to the change in the tempo of the reproduced music (steps S205 and S207 to S210).

  In the case of the process shown in FIG. 17, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device firstly uses the key operation unit 41 to calculate the user's weight, height (step length), age necessary for calculating the user's exercise amount. The key input of personal profile information such as gender is accepted and stored in the RAM 13 or the like (step S301). The information such as weight and height input here is information necessary for calculating the amount of exercise such as calories burned and walking distance (exercise distance), and the age and gender are for display at the end of exercise, for example. Necessary information.

  Next, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device receives the target consumption energy (target exercise amount) and the exercise mode that the user intends to consume by exercise, and stores and holds them in the RAM 13 or the like (step S302). As in the example described with reference to FIG. 15, the exercise mode is, for example, a constant mode in which exercise at a constant speed is performed, a random mode in which exercise is performed at a random speed, and the intensity is gradually increased. There is a hill mode that keeps constant at, and then exercises to gradually decrease the intensity. It is also possible to input the type of exercise to be performed, such as walking, jogging, and running.

  Thereafter, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device acquires reproducible music data titles, characteristic information such as reproduction time, tempo, energy consumption, and distance that can be moved by exercise (step S303). Characteristic information such as the title, playback time, tempo, energy consumption, and distance that can be moved by exercise is information predetermined for each music (music piece).

  The energy consumption indicates the energy consumed by the exerciser (user) when exercising in response to the music emitted by playing the music data. The possible distance indicates the movement distance of the exerciser (user) when exercise is performed in response to the music emitted by reproducing the music data. For example, a plurality of different energy consumptions and user movement distances can be used depending on the exercise intensity of the exercise to be performed.

  FIG. 18 is a diagram for explaining an example of a list of reproducible music data (reproduced music information) acquired in the process of step S303. In the case of the example shown in FIG. 18, according to the title of reproducible music data, the length (reproduction time) of the music reproduced by the audio data, the tempo, and the music obtained by reproducing the music data. It consists of information such as energy consumption when exercising from the beginning to the end of the music.

  Then, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device includes the personal profile information acquired in step S301, the target calorie consumption and the type of exercise acquired in step S302, and the characteristic information of the music data acquired in step S303. Based on this, a reproduction music list that is a list of music data to be reproduced is generated to determine music data to be reproduced (step S304).

  In step S304, for example, a reproduction music list as shown in FIGS. 19A and 19B is generated. That is, FIG. 19A corresponds to an example of a reproduction music list when the target energy consumption is 500 kcal and the exercise mode is a constant mode (constant mode), and FIG. 19B is an increase and decrease in exercise intensity including warm-up and cool-down. It corresponds to an example of a hill mode (up / down mode) designated to include

  Next, the control unit 10 of the sound reproduction device controls each unit to start reproduction of the music data picked up in the reproduction music list and prompts the user to start exercise (step S305). Then, the control unit 10 monitors the processing state of the own device and determines whether or not music is being played back (step S306). When it is determined in step S306 that music is being played back, the recording medium of the recording device unit 53 uses information such as the title, playback time, and tempo of the music data being played back (playback music information) as playback history information. (Step S307), and the processing from step S306 is repeated. In this case, the essential information is the reproduction time, but other information is recorded for display, for example.

  In the determination process of step S306, when the control unit 10 determines that the reproduction of the music data has been completed, the control unit 10 controls the exercise information analysis circuit 23 and records it on the recording medium of the storage device unit 53 in step S307. 6 to FIG. 6 based on the reproduction history information and the personal profile information and the target exercise amount information including the weight, height, age, sex, etc. of the user acquired in the processing of step S301 and step S302 and temporarily stored in the RAM 13. As described with reference to FIG. 14, the amount of exercise performed by the user is calculated (step S308).

  In this step S308 as well, values such as exercise time, number of steps, walking distance (movement distance), average speed, calories burned, and fat burning amount when exercise such as walking or jogging is performed in accordance with the music to be reproduced. calculate. Then, the control unit 10 controls the display circuit 33 to display information indicating the amount of exercise of the user obtained in step S213 on the display screen of the display unit 34 (step S309), and performs the processing shown in FIG. finish.

  FIG. 20 is a diagram for explaining an example of the exercise amount information display screen provided by display to the user in step S309. As shown in FIG. 20, in the sound reproducing device of this embodiment, when the reproduction of music data is completed, a display including information such as target calorie consumption, exercise time, walking distance, average speed, and fat burning amount is performed. .

  In the case of the example shown in FIG. 20, a user who exercises, for example, walks in accordance with the reproduced music, consumes 500 kcal of energy and continuously travels for 3 km for an average speed of 30 km. It can be seen that the person had to exercise at a speed of 6 km / h, and that the amount of fat burning at this time was 20 g. In addition, a message to display exercise amount information is displayed on the upper end side of the screen, and a message “Thank you very much!” Is displayed on the lower end side of the screen.

  In this way, by inputting information such as target energy consumption, how much exercise is required is indicated by the music data to be played and the number of times it is played, based on the calorie consumption of the music data to be played. To be able to. By playing the indicated music data as shown and performing exercises such as walking and jogging according to the music obtained by playing, all the music data to be played is shown for the number of times indicated. When it is reproduced, the user has finished the exercise for the target calorie consumption. That is, the user can exercise the target amount without difficulty by exercising in accordance with the music to be reproduced.

  In this example as well, personal profile information input by the user, exercise information, and the amount of exercise information calculated in step S308 are also stored in the storage device 53, so that analysis after the end of exercise, etc. It is possible to use it.

  The sound reproducing device according to the embodiment described above reproduces various music data, and the tempo and rhythm of the music that is reproduced naturally even if the user does not exercise consciousness when exercising. Because you can adjust your own movements, you will be able to exercise without difficulty.

  In addition, since the amount of exercise information performed by the user can be presented to the user, it is possible to provide motivation to continue the exercise, and it is impossible to perform the exercise that needs to be continued for a certain period of time. It can be continued without any problems, and it is possible to have fun exercising. In addition, since the playback history information, personal profile information, and exercise amount information can be managed on the side of the sound playback device used exclusively for the user, the user's personal information can be managed with high safety.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 1, since the sound reproducing device of this embodiment includes the storage device unit 53, as described above, the personal profile information, exercise amount information, and reproduction are stored in the storage device unit 53. It is also possible to store music information and the like and retrieve it later for various analyses. For example, as shown in FIG. 21, it is possible to perform processing such as graphing the relationship between the change in the weight of the user and the cumulative value of energy consumed by the exercise, and the effect of the exercise can be viewed from various viewpoints to the user. You can be notified. That is, it is possible to confirm the effect when exercise is performed using the sound reproducing device of this embodiment.

  Also, by inputting information such as target energy consumption, how much exercise is required can be indicated by the music data to be played and the number of times it is played, based on the calorie consumption of the music data to be played. Be made possible. By playing the indicated music data as shown and performing exercises such as walking and jogging according to the music obtained by playing, all the music data to be played is shown for the number of times indicated. When it is reproduced, the user has finished the exercise for the target calorie consumption. That is, the user can exercise the target amount without difficulty by exercising in accordance with the music to be reproduced.

  It should be noted that by creating a program for executing the processing described with reference to the flowcharts of FIGS. 2, 15, and 17, and mounting the program on various sound reproducing devices, the sound reproducing device of the present invention is relatively simple.

Are received and stored in the RAM 13 or the like (step S501). The information such as weight and height input here is information necessary for calculating the amount of exercise such as calories burned and walking distance (exercise distance), and the age and gender are for display at the end of exercise, for example. Necessary information.

  Next, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device receives an input of target consumption energy (target exercise amount) that the user intends to consume by exercise, and stores and stores this in the RAM 13 or the like (step S502). Note that in step S502, the exercise mode that the user wants to perform, such as hill mode, constant mode, and random mode, and the type of exercise that the user wants to perform such as walking, jogging, running, dashing, walking, etc. It is also possible to configure to input.

  The exercise information received by the control unit 10 of the sound reproduction device in response to the input from the user in step S502 is used when the reproduction music list is automatically generated as will be described in detail later.

  Thereafter, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device acquires reproducible music data titles, reproduction time, tempo, energy consumption, and other characteristic information such as the distance that can be moved by exercise (step S503). Characteristic information such as the title, playback time, tempo, energy consumption, and distance that can be moved by exercise is information predetermined for each music (music piece).

  The energy consumption indicates the energy consumed by the exerciser (user) when exercising in response to the music emitted by playing the music data. The possible distance indicates the movement distance of the exerciser (user) when exercise is performed in response to the music emitted by reproducing the music data. For example, a plurality of different energy consumptions and user movement distances can be used depending on the exercise intensity of the exercise to be performed.

  Then, in step S503, the processing shown in FIG. 22 is also performed for characteristic information such as the title, playback time, tempo, and energy consumption of the music data that can be played back by the sound playback device of the second embodiment. As described in step S403, for example, the information is read from the recording medium (recording medium) of the music information storage device unit 21, or is connected to the network via the communication I / F 61.

  In addition, when the title and characteristic information of music data that can be played back by this sound playback device are acquired from a database on the network, it can be searched and acquired based on the identification information of the music data that can be played back. To be. Further, the music data itself stored and held in the recording medium of the music information storage unit 21 can be acquired from a medium such as a CD (Compact Disc) or can be acquired from a database on the network.

  Reproduced music information including titles and characteristic information about the reproducible music obtained is temporarily stored in the RAM 13 or the like, and can be used in the sound reproducing apparatus of the second embodiment. Further, it is also possible to make the playback music information as shown in FIG. 23 available on the recording medium of the music information storage unit 21 by reading it and temporarily storing it in the RAM 13 or the like.

  FIG. 31 is a diagram for explaining an example of a list of reproducible music data (reproduced music information) acquired in the process of step S503. In the case of the example shown in FIG. 31, according to the title of reproducible music data, the length (reproduction time) of music reproduced by the audio data, the tempo, and the music obtained by reproducing the music data. It consists of information such as energy consumption when exercising from the beginning to the end of the music.

  As shown in FIG. 31, the reproduced music information including the title and characteristic information about the acquired reproducible music is temporarily stored in the RAM 13 and can be used. Further, it is also possible to make the playback music information as shown in FIG. 23 available on the recording medium of the music information storage unit 21 by reading it and temporarily storing it in the RAM 13 or the like.

  Then, the control unit 10 of the sound reproducing device according to the second embodiment uses the reproduced music list automatically generated from the reproduced music information shown in FIG. The display circuit 33 is controlled as a candidate list and displayed on the display unit 34 to be presented to the user (step S504).

  As will be described in detail later, the reproduction song candidate list presented in step S504 is automatically generated based on the target exercise amount or the like and in consideration of the exercise mode, for example, in the manner shown in FIGS. 36, which are prepared in advance (registered) as shown in FIG.

  As described above, these usable reproduction music lists are, for example, a recording medium of the music information storage unit 21, a recording medium of the storage unit 53, or a nonvolatile memory such as an EEPROM not shown in FIG. 28, and is displayed on the display screen of the display unit 34 in a manner as shown in FIG. 28, for example, and presents all of the candidate reproduction music lists to the user, or sequentially candidates one by one. Or to be presented.

  Then, the control unit 10 receives a selection input of the reproduction candidate list from the user or a correction input for the selected reproduction candidate list through the key operation unit 41 (step S505), and the selection input or selection of the reproduction candidate list is selected. It is determined whether or not an input operation from the user such as a change input to the reproduction music list has been completed (step S506).

  If it is determined in step S506 that the operation input from the user has not ended, the processing from step S505 is repeated. If it is determined in step S506 that the operation input from the user has been completed, the selected reproduction music list or the reproduction music list using the reproduction music list selected and changed in content is used. Determination is made (step S507).

  Then, the control unit 10 sequentially reads out music data to be reproduced from the recording medium of the music information storage device unit 21 according to the reproduction music list determined in step S507, and supplies this to the audio signal output processing unit 23. Then, a series of reproduction processes for starting to output music corresponding to the read music data from the speaker is started (step S508). In response to the music reproduced in this way (in accordance with the music to be reproduced), the user starts exercising.

  Next, the control unit 10 monitors the processing state of the own device and determines whether or not music is being played back (step S509). If it is determined in step S509 that the music is being played back, the recording device 53 records information such as the title, playback time, and tempo of the music data being played back (playback music information) as playback history information. The data is stored in the medium (step S510), and the processing from step S509 is repeated.

  In the determination process of step S509, when the control unit 10 determines that the reproduction of the music data has been completed, the control unit 10 controls the exercise information analysis circuit 23 and records it on the recording medium of the storage device unit 53 in step S510. Performed by the user based on the reproduced history information and personal profile information and exercise information including the weight, height, age, sex, etc. of the user acquired in the processing of step S501 and step S502 and temporarily stored in the RAM 13 The amount of exercise is calculated (step S511). In step S511, as in the case of the sound reproducing device of the first embodiment, the amount of exercise performed by the user is calculated as described with reference to FIGS.

  Then, the control unit 10 controls the display circuit 33 to display information indicating the amount of exercise of the user obtained in step S511 on the display screen of the display unit 34 (step S512), and performs the processing shown in FIG. finish. In step S512, as will be described in detail later, for example, the amount of exercise performed by the user is notified to the user in a manner as shown in FIG.

FIG. Here, as shown in FIG. 35B, in the combined mode, after a light load exercise is performed over time, a heavy load exercise is performed for a certain period of time, and finally the body is naturally cooled down. Therefore, this is a mode in which exercises with different loads are performed in combination, such as exercise with a light load for a certain period of time.

  The reproduction music list 4 shown in FIG. 35A is formed from the reproduction music information shown in FIG. 31, and the music C (length: 2 minutes 22 seconds, tempo: 120, energy consumption: 25 kcal), music E (length). : 1 minute 50 seconds, tempo: 180, energy consumption: 30 kcal), music F (length: 3:00 seconds, tempo: 80, energy consumption: 15 kcal) Time (125 kcal) → Music E 10 times (300 kcal) → Music F 5 times (75 kcal) are instructed in this order, and the overall exercise consumes 500 kcal of heat energy. Is.

  As described above, in the sound reproduction device according to the second embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 32 to 35, the sound reproduction device is based on the personal profile information and the exercise information acquired by the sound reproduction device, and includes a plurality of exercise modes. A plurality of playback music lists corresponding to the user can be automatically generated. It should be noted that the automatic generation of the reproduction music list may be performed in step S504 of the process shown in FIG.

  Next, a reproduction music list prepared in advance (registered in advance), in other words, a preset reproduction music list will be described. FIG. 36 is a diagram for explaining an example of a preset reproduction music list. The preset playback music list is registered in advance by the user who exercises in accordance with the music played back by the sound playback device according to the second embodiment according to his / her usage and preference. .

  For example, as shown in FIG. 36, by using a random mode as an exercise mode and preparing a reproduction music list that consumes 500 kcal of heat energy, the music data is reproduced using this to perform exercise. To be able to do. In the case of the example shown in FIG. 36, song A (length: 1 minute 11 seconds, tempo: 100, calorie consumption: 10 kcal), song B (length: 3 minutes 33 seconds, tempo: 105, calorie consumption: 30 kcal) ) Using song data of song E (length: 1 minute 50 seconds, tempo: 180, calorie consumption: 30 kcal), song F (length: 3 minutes 00 seconds, tempo: 80), song A 5 times (50 kcal) → 2 times of music E (60 kcal) → 3 times of music B (90 kcal) → 7 times of music E (210 kcal) → 3 times of music B (75 kcal) → 1 time of music F (80 kcal) It is instructed to reproduce in this order, and exercise is performed in a random mode, and exercise that can consume 500 kcal of heat energy is performed.

  The plurality of reproduction music lists described with reference to FIGS. 32 to 36 are stored and held in, for example, the recording device 53 and the RAM 13, and are supplied to the display circuit 33 through the control unit 10 and reproduced on the display screen of the display unit 34. It is displayed as a song candidate list. In this case, for example, as shown in FIG. 28A, the information displayed on the uppermost portion of the display screen 34G of the display unit 34 is the playback song candidate list. The display which shows that there exists is displayed, and it displays in the aspect which displays the list | wrist which can be used for the following reproduction | regeneration music.

  Here, as shown in “List 1 (Hill mode)”, the title name of each available playback song list and the title, length, song tempo, and playback count of the music data constituting the playback song list are the playback songs. It will be displayed for each list. If there is a playback music list that cannot be displayed due to the size of the display screen 34G of the display unit 34, the screen display can be scrolled so that the entire list can be viewed.

  Then, when the target reproduction music list is found, it is operated through the key operation unit 41 and the cursor is positioned at a predetermined position such as a title name of the target reproduction music list to perform the determination operation. The playback music list can be used as a playback music list that is actually used.

  As shown in FIG. 28B, for example, “list 1 (hill mode)”, “list 2 (constant mode)”, “list 3 (random mode)”, “preset list 1 (for random 500 kcal)” Only the title name of each playback music list is displayed as a list, and the contents of the playback music list selected from this list are displayed so that it can be determined or reselected. Is also possible. Of course, it may be displayed in other display modes.

  In this way, the process of selecting and playing music data in step S508 of the process shown in FIG. 30 based on the reproduction music list selected by the process of steps S504 to S507 of the process shown in FIG. Done.

[About changing the contents of the playback song list]
In addition, as described in step S505 of the process shown in FIG. 30, the sound reproducing device according to the second embodiment can also correct the contents of the selected reproduction music list. FIG. 37 is a diagram for explaining the correction of the content of the reproduction music list performed in the sound reproduction device according to the second embodiment.

  In FIG. 37, FIG. 37A shows a reproduction music list that is selected and corrected, and FIG. 37B shows an example of a reproduction music list after correction. For example, as shown in FIG. 37A, it is assumed that the reproduction music list 3 (random mode) is selected from the available reproduction music lists.

  In this case, the control unit 10 displays the content of the selected reproduction music list 3 on the display screen 34G of the display unit 34 through the display circuit 33, and accepts a content correction input from the user. For example, in the reproduction music list (random mode) shown in FIG. 37A, the music to be reproduced third can be changed from the music B to the music H.

  Specifically, by operating an operation key such as an arrow key of the key operation unit 41, an operation of positioning the cursor in the title or characteristic information display column for the music data to be replaced and designating other usable music data As shown in FIG. 37B, the third music B in the reproduction music list 3 can be corrected to the music H as shown in FIG.

  Of course, by repeating such operations, it is possible to make a series of corrections such as changing the music data to be played, changing the playback order of the music data to be played, and changing the number of playbacks. Has been. As described above, since the contents of the available reproduction music list can be corrected, if there is an automatically generated reproduction music list or a reproduction music list prepared in advance, the contents are changed. Depending on the usage mode and preferences of the user, the existing playback music list can be arranged to form a playback music list according to the user's usage mode and preferences, and music data can be played back using this list. I can do it.

[Specific examples of momentum display]
Also in the processing shown in FIG. 30, the amount of exercise calculated in step S511 can be displayed on the display screen of the display unit 34 and provided to the user. In step S512, as shown in FIG. 38, display including information such as target calorie consumption, exercise time, walking distance, average speed, calorie consumption, and fat burning amount can be performed.

  In the case of automatically generating a reproduction music list in consideration of the target exercise amount described with reference to FIGS. 30 to 38, in addition to the hill mode, constant mode, and random mode, FIG. The explanation has been made assuming that the combined mode described above can also be used. This composite mode is not only for automatically generating a playback music list based on the target exercise amount, but also for automatically generating a playback music list based on the personal profile information and exercise information described with reference to FIGS. Can also be used.

  Further, even when the reproduction music list is automatically generated based on the personal profile information and exercise information described with reference to FIGS. 22 to 29, the target exercise amount described with reference to FIGS. 30 to 38 is also taken into consideration. Even when automatically generating a playback song list, it is possible to use a hill mode, a constant mode, a random mode, a combined mode, an exercise mode combining these modes, and various other new exercise modes. It is.

  As described above, in the sound reproduction device according to the second embodiment, a plurality of reproduction music lists such as an automatically generated reproduction music list and a pre-registered reproduction music list can be used. Therefore, it is possible to eliminate the need to perform an operation of instructing a plurality of music data to be reproduced immediately before the user starts exercise.

  Then, the user can play a series of music data by selecting a reproduction music list suitable for the exercise he / she wants to perform, thereby inducing the exercise performed by the user. The person will be able to perform the intended exercise without difficulty.

  Also, if the music data of a part of the playback music list you are trying to use is unsuitable for exercise or is not the user's preference, modify the playback music list and use it It is also possible to change to a reproduction music list that can reproduce music data according to the user's usage and preference, and use this.

  Moreover, since the amount of exercise information performed by the user can be presented to the user similarly to the sound reproduction device of the first embodiment, it is possible to provide motivation to continue exercise. The exercise that needs to be continued for a certain period of time can be continued without difficulty, and the exercise can be performed happily. In addition, since the playback history information, personal profile information, and exercise amount information can be managed on the side of the sound playback device used exclusively for the user, the user's personal information can be managed with high safety.

  In addition, since the sound reproduction device of the second embodiment also includes the storage device unit 53, as described above, personal profile information, exercise amount information, reproduction music information, and the like are stored in the storage device unit 53. It can be stored and later retrieved for various analyses.

  Also, by inputting information such as target energy consumption, how much exercise is required can be indicated by the music data to be played and the number of times it is played, based on the calorie consumption of the music data to be played. Be made possible. By playing the indicated music data as shown and performing exercises such as walking and jogging according to the music obtained by playing, all the music data to be played is shown for the number of times indicated. When it is reproduced, the user has finished the exercise for the target calorie consumption. That is, the user can exercise the target amount without difficulty by exercising in accordance with the music to be reproduced.

  Note that, by creating a program for executing the processing described with reference to the flowcharts of FIGS. 22 and 30, and mounting the program on various sound reproduction devices, the sound reproduction device of the present invention can be realized relatively easily. be able to.

[Exercise mode correction input]
In the embodiment described above, it is explained that an exercise mode such as a hill mode, a constant mode, a random mode, or a composite mode can be used as an exercise mode for performing an exercise with a load in a predetermined pattern. did. For each of these motion modes, the load pattern (motion pattern) is determined in advance, but this can be corrected.

  60 and 61 are diagrams for explaining pattern correction in the exercise mode. First, consider the case of correcting the motion pattern in Hill mode. In this case, when a predetermined operation for displaying the hill mode pattern on the display screen 34G of the display unit 34 is performed, the control circuit 10 controls the display circuit 33, and as shown in FIG. 60A, the current motion pattern waveform for the hill mode And the cursor CS are displayed on the display screen 34G.

  When the load is increased, as shown in FIG. 60B, the movement pattern waveform for the hill mode is deformed by positioning the cursor at the apex of the movement pattern waveform and moving the cursor CS upward. It can be corrected to increase the load. When it is desired to increase the load and change the peak position, as shown in FIG. 60C, the cursor is positioned at the apex of the motion pattern waveform, and the cursor CS is moved upward and also moved to the right. The motion pattern waveform for the hill mode can be modified to increase the overall load and move the peak position.

  In the random mode, the load can be increased and the peak position can be moved in the same manner as in the hill mode. Of course, in both the hill mode and the random mode, correction can be made to reduce the load.

  Next, consider the case of correcting the motion pattern in the composite mode. In this case, when a predetermined operation for displaying the composite mode pattern on the display screen 34G of the display unit 34 is performed, the control circuit 10 controls the display circuit 33, and as shown in FIG. 61A, the current exercise for the composite mode is performed. The pattern waveform and the cursor CS are displayed on the display screen 34G.

  If it is desired to lengthen the first light exercise period, as shown in FIG. 61B, the cursor is positioned at the end portion of the first light load exercise period of the movement pattern waveform, and the cursor CS is moved to the right side, The motion pattern waveform for the composite mode can be modified to lengthen the initial light load motion period. In this case, as shown in FIG. 61B, it is possible to shorten the exercise period of the next heavy load by lengthening the exercise period of the first light load, and as shown in FIG. 61C, It is also possible to slide the heavy exercise period following the initial light exercise period and the cool-down period without changing the length. In this case, which modification is to be performed may be determined by the manufacturer of the sound reproducing device, or may be selected by the user.

  In addition, if the cursor CS is positioned in either the first light load exercise period, the heavy load exercise period, or the cool-down period, moving the cursor upward increases the load during that period and moves it downward. Then, it is possible to reduce the load during that period. Such exercise load correction (adjustment) can be performed in the same manner in the constant mode.

  In the first to third embodiments described above, the exercise performed by the user has been described as performing a series of walking exercises such as walking, walking, jogging, running, and dashing. In this case, (1) walking, (2) walking, (3) jogging, (4) running, (5) dash, the movement speed (moving speed) increases in the order of (1) to (5). This means that the load on the person doing exercise increases. However, since there are individual differences in the movement speeds (movement speeds) in these movements, it is not possible to define the speeds by numerically specifying them. It may overlap with the section according to the speed.

  The distinction between (1) walking, (2) walking, (3) jogging, (4) running, (5) dash is not only physically moving, but also so-called room runners and bicycles used indoors. Even when exercise is performed indoors using a type training machine or the like, it is also possible to specify the type of exercise according to the intensity.

  For example, when exercising using a bicycle-type training machine, if you pedal the pedal very slowly, (1) walk around, and (2) walk around when you pedal the pedal so as to apply a load of walking. (3) When jogging the pedal so that a load of aerobic jogging is applied (3) When jogging, and when pedaling with a larger load, (4) Running or (5) Dash Even if the type of exercise performed by the user is different, according to the load and exercise tempo, (1) walking, (2) walking, (3) jogging, (4) running, 5) The exercise performed by the user can be managed by dividing the dash.

  Therefore, in the apparatus to which the present invention is applied, such as a sound reproducing device, the intensity of exercise is managed by the following categories: (1) walking, (2) walking, (3) jogging, (4) running, and (5) dash. In order for the user to perform exercises according to the purpose without difficulty, audio data such as music is reproduced and provided to the user to assist the user in performing various exercises. be able to.
