It seems that the incessant battle between the world’s tech companies has spilled over into an unexpected industry: health. Apple and Google especially have been racing to establish a strong foothold in the health industry and it looks like Apple is preparing to take things a step further according to some new job listings.
With the launch of the health- and fitness-focused Apple Watch fast approaching, Apple continues to bolster its internal research teams focused on analyzing the human body, representing a new and different direction for the tech giant. This week, Apple posted an interesting job listing for a “Human Factors Anthropometry Engineer/Researcher,” discovered by AppleInsider. Anthropometry is the study of measurements and proportions of the human body, covering a wide range of subjects from body dimensions and weight to ergonomics, comfort and posture.
