An Apple job listing seeking physiologists is the first official sign from the company that it’s looking to move into the health realm. The job listing — which was posted earlier today and has since been removed from Apple’s website — seeks a “user studies exercise physiologist” to “design and run user studies related to cardiovascular fitness and energy expenditure.” Although numerous reports have noted Apple is going in a health-related direction with its iWatch — including reports that Apple has hired experts from the medical field — this is the first signal that’s come directly from Apple. A recent report claimed iOS 8 and a new app with the codename “Healthbook” would be designed with iWatch in mind. [via 9to5Mac]
