If you’re a proud Apple Watch wearer, you’ve taken great steps towards managing and improving your health and fitness. RAND Europe (2018) conducted a behavioral change study that found that our Vitality incentives combined with Apple Watch lead to significant and long-term increases in activity levels.
We know that exercise is one of the best ways for you to improve your health. Benefits include improving cholesterol, blood pressure and your cardiorespiratory fitness – all proven outcomes based on the RAND study that looked at just under half a million people.
This is part of the Global Vitality Network’s pledge to make 100 million people 20% more active by 2025. An ambitious target that aims to incentivise tens of millions to be part of a movement of people determined to live healthier lives.
How does a few years of extra (healthy) life sound? Ask our 50 000 Apple Watch members who are getting more active, more often – thanks to Vitality Active Rewards and Apple Watch.
