Talk of Apple releasing its own smartwatch predates back to nearly three years ago, and the tech giant has yet to offer any insight on when the actual device will ever come to the market. However, the company’s latest job listing does confirm the Cupertino Clan is in fact working on a wearable, as it looks for a User Studies Exercise Physiologist.

The position requires employees 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.” In addition, Apple wants the applicant to have a “relevant knowledge to the design of products and their testing/validation through user studies.”

Just earlier this week, Apple hired former sleep research expert Roy J.E.M. Raymann, who worked at Philips Research. The company’s also enlisted the services of former Nike FuelBand design director Ben Shaffer. Those in Silicon Valley interested in the position can look over the job listing in full below.
