John Hancock expands Apple Watch program

John Hancock is expanding its Apple Watch program to offer the recently announced Apple Watch Series 7 to life insurance customers participating in the John Hancock Vitality Program. Beginning this fall, John Hancock Vitality PLUS members can earn an Apple Watch Series 7 for as little as $25 plus tax by exercising regularly.

To date, the Apple Watch has been an extremely popular and effective component of the John Hancock Vitality Program. In a recent survey of John Hancock Vitality members with an Apple Watch, 85% stated they are motivated to exercise by their Apple Watch and 92% wear an Apple Watch every day, or almost every day.

“Now more than ever, people are increasingly cognizant of their baseline health and mortality. Wearables have the ability to help customers maintain or improve their health, and in some cases, we’ve even seen that this technology has the ability to save lives. That’s why we’re excited to continue offering our Vitality customers the latest personal health technology on the market with the new Apple Watch this fall. We’ve seen the tremendous impact our Vitality program can have on an individual’s health, whether they are far along on their wellness journey or just getting started. We believe it’s important for life insurers like us to play a role in helping our customers along on this journey to living longer, healthier lives.”” – Brooks Tingle, president and CEO of John Hancock Insurance.
