MINNETONKA, Minn. – UnitedHealthcare and Qualcomm Life have integrated wearable devices from Samsung and Garmin into UnitedHealthcare Motion, a national wellness program that provides eligible plan participants access to activity trackers and enables them to earn more than $1,000 per year by meeting certain daily walking goals. The Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Sport, and the Garmin vívosmart 3, have been integrated with Qualcomm Life’s 2net platform and customized to enable users to see on their wrists how they are tracking against the program’s three daily F.I.T. goals. Among eligible employees, 66% registered their devices, with more than two-thirds of those staying active with the program for more than one year. “We are expanding the portfolio of available devices to make UnitedHealthcare Motion more flexible, convenient and consumer friendly,” said Dr. Sam Ho, chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare, in a statement. Qualcomm Life’s 2net platform enables the bring-your-own-device model to allow the integration of more activity trackers. “This program highlights the value of combing UnitedHealthcare’s pro-consumer benefit designs with Qualcomm Life’s expertise in providing seamless connectivity across a growing ecosystem of wearable devices to help people pursue their health and wellness goals,” said Dr. James Mault, vice president and chief medical officer of Qualcomm Life, in a statement.
