Apple posts openings for physiologists, other iWatch-related jobs

updated 11:39 am EST, Thu February 6, 2014

Candidates, watch may need to meet strict standards

Apple has published new job listings on its website calling for physiologists and engineers to handle tests connected to health and fitness tracking. The physiologist opening asks for someone to "design and run user studies related to cardiovascular fitness & energy expenditure, including calories burned, metabolic rate, aerobic fitness level measurement/tracking and other key physiological measurements." Given Apple's other recent hires, it's believed that the jobs are directly related to the iWatch project.

Both candidates and the device may need to meet strict standards. The company has reportedly started meeting with US Food and Drug Administration officials regarding medical apps, which could be related to the company's rumored "Healthbook" app for iOS 8. The app is expected to pull data from the iWatch; to qualify as a medical device, the watch will have to meet certain accuracy criteria.
