Apple’s LinkedIn page job post last Wednesday showed that Apple will continue to take care of its consumers’ health, specifically heart health. Apple is looking to hire someone to join its health technology team. This will enable the tech giant to bring more consumer medical devices to market.
The year 2020 is a big game-changer for the health and lifestyle of everyone in the world. It served as a wake up call for all to prioritize our health. Even before pandemic begun, Apple already prioritized the health of its consumers by using their products to promote health and wellness. This became evident once more with the job posting made by Apple. As explained by Apple Insider, they are seeking to hire a cardiologist for product development.
What is Apple Looking for?
This job posting specifically looks for a senior cardiologist with experience in health product and technology development. The post states that this new hire has the responsibility of helping to define clinical feature definitions and specifications in order to create innovative product features aimed at impacting heart health.
They also added that “This is an outstanding opportunity for a clinician to demonstrate their medical expertise and passion to assist in building health focused technologies.”
Apple Watch: Promoting Health and Wellness
Apple has been a part of the consumer health industry since the announcement of their Apple Watch in September 2014. As you know, it does not only play the role of a simple watch, it also include the following features:
- a precise and customizable timepiece
- an intimate way to connect and communicate
- a comprehensive health and fitness companion.
Aside from connecting people all over the world, as other products do. Apple Watch also monitors movement and activity all throughout the day with its heart sensor and accelerometer. With the help of their Apple Health app, you can easily track daily progress with your goals. The goals include a target exercise goal, calories burned, and hours of physical activity.
Apple Watch’s Activity app also helps you to be more motivated with medals and rewards given to users with continued habits and goals achieved. You may also share your goals with your family and friends, or even challenge them to achieve a goal using this app.
They continue to add features to their products like ECG function, and monitoring of blood oxygen data. With all these additional features, Apple is now required to seek regulatory approval which explains the qualifications they look for in their job posting. As of today, the post no longer accepts applications.
Technology: Making Life Easier and Better
Apple continually shows that they do not only make life easier with their technology, but also makes it easier to achieve the health goals you have. As we enter a world dependent of technology, it is always a great way for technology and health to be working hand in hand in the advancement of various aspects of your lives.
The world can be as advanced as it can be, while taking care of the people living in it.
