Apple is seeking a 'User Studies Exercise Physiologist' to design and run user studies related to cardiovascular fitness & energy expenditure, corroborating reports that the company is looking to add fitness tracking to its iOS devices and the rumored iWatch.

The job description reads as follows:

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.

Candidate will be knowledgeable about the physiological effects being measured and how to avoid potential inaccuracy and experimental error due DOE flaws and/or reference monitor (i.e. metabolic cart, etc.) usage issues.

The role will need to apply relevant knowledge to the design of products and their testing/validation through user studies.


The position was posted on February 6th; however, once it was noticed by the media, Apple removed the listing. You can find a screenshot below.

It's thought that Apple will release a new 'Healthbook' app alongside iOS 8 that will be able to monitor and store fitness statistics including steps taken, calories burned, and miles walked. More details here.

Think about it, by an entire week evened out it would be 5.7 hours per day, but for those who want Sunday and Saturday off would be 8. So yes, 40 a week it is.
