Singapore and Apple incentivize citizens and residents to stay healthy

Earn rewards worth up to $380



With one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the world, Singapore is incentivizing its citizens to stay fit and healthy in an entirely new way — using Apple Watch and a new app called LumiHealth.

Created in collaboration with a team of physicians and public health experts, LumiHealth is a personalized program that encourages healthy activities and behavior.

It’s designed by Singapore’s Health Promotion Board in partnership with Apple. The program is part of the country’s Smart Nation initiative, Singapore’s nationwide effort to leverage technology to deliver benefits to its citizens and businesses.

LumiHealth uses behavioral insights to encourage Singaporeans and residents to adopt healthy habits and complete wellness challenges through personalized reminders, programs, activity coaching, and incentives.

Within the LumiHealth app, users travel through worlds with a friendly intergalactic explorer who guides them through tasks that are personalized based on their age, gender, and weight. They include weekly activity goals that can be met through not just walking, but also swimming, yoga, and other activities.

By completing these goals and challenges, users help the intergalactic explorer get back home, all while being able to earn rewards worth up to SG$ 380 over the two-year duration of the program.

An Apple Watch is necessary to participate in the challenges, as is downloading the LumiHealth app from the App Store.

LumiHealth also reminds users to go for health screenings and immunizations, as well as participate in wellness challenges that aim to improve sleep habits and mindfulness as well as encourage better food choices.

“Even as all of us around the world are dealing with the challenges of COVID-19, we must keep investing in our future. And there is no better investment than in our own personal health,” said Heng Swee Keat, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister. “This partnership between Singapore and Apple will enable Singaporeans to lead healthier lives, but equally important, it will contribute valuable insights to improving the health of people all over the world.”

The LumiHealth app, designed with user privacy and security at its core, is available in the App Store for pre-order now, and the two-year program will be offered from late October 2020.
