Wearing fitness trackers could earn money back from Swiss health insurers
Fitbit and other fitness tracker wearers could be quid's in if they make their daily step goal.
Private health insurance companies are starting to offer rebates to Swiss clients who share their activity data through their health-monitoring devices.
Currently, two companies – CSS and Swica – are making the offer, despite strict data protection laws in Switzerland.
CSS ‘myStep' plan will give clients back CHF0.40 for each day they manage to walk a minimum of 10,000 steps.
Swica's Benevita plan offers reductions to clients who share their data to its online platform and achieve certain fitness goals.
They have partnered up with Swisscom to support the technology behind the offer.
