Default Durable player that handles playlists well, with long battery life?

I'm looking for an 8GB (or higher) mp3 player that won't require hours and hours of tinkering to get it work with my setup (a PC running Windows 7).

The most important criteria are:
- easily (comfortably) fits in a pocket
- easily managed with MediaMonkey*
- easily supports creation and management of playlists on the device with MediaMonkey
- long battery life
- resistant to breakage/screen scratching

  • Location: USA
  • Capacity: 8 - 16GB (but wouldn't complain if even higher GB, obviously)
  • Budget: <$200
  • Use: mainly for working out; also for traveling (driving, planes, trains)
  • Type/Design: AUDIO -- video totally unnecessary!
  • Display: display not important -- but prefer something that resists scratching and breakage
  • UI/Controls: User interface with tactical buttons, touch or combination of both
  • Battery life: maximal possible (certainly no less than 15 hours for audio)
  • support for ReplayGain would be nice, but not required
  • ideally, able to sync ratings from pc to the player

(*Although I would prefer a player that works with MediaMonkey, since I've already invested a lot of time with MediaMonkey, if there is an alternative player that has all of the other features but does not work with MediaMonkey, it might work for me!)

I always seem to get a player that has rave reviews but ends up not having some feature (eg playlists management) that is actually important to me. So hoping you can help.
