Apple looking to hire fitness physiologists





 Apple is reportedly inviting job applications for the position of "User Studies Exercise Physiologist" amid speculations of a possible launch of potential iWatch, riddled with biometric sensors. 

While the company's CEO Tim Cook seems to have acknowledged the 'wearable' product, the move is being seen as Apple's attempt to enter the health and fitness product market. According to the Tech Crunch, Apple is seeking a suitable candidate who will be in charge of creating and conducting studies related to cardiovascular fitness & energy expenditure, including calories burned, metabolic rate, aerobic fitness level measurement/tracking. 

The candidate will be required to gather and research this kind of data and apply relevant knowledge to the design of products and their testing/validation through user studies. Meanwhile, Apple has listed its new job amid reports from 9to5Mac about Apple hiring a sleep research expert and another report from the website about Apple working on a new dedicated health app called "Healthbook", which could probably be included in its next major iOS iteration.
