Monthly payment: £0 - £12.50 - depending on your activity

Get Apple Watch
Vitality members, choose your Apple Watch Series 2 or Apple Watch Nike+ in our Member Zone area. You’ll need to pass a credit check, make an initial payment and set up a variable Direct Debit for 24 months. Then download the free Vitality Member app to your iPhone.
Apple Watch will track your steps, enabling you to earn Vitality activity points. You can earn up to 40 activity points a week and 160 activity points each month for getting active.
Your monthly payment depends on how many activity points you earn each month. Get Apple Watch Series 2 from just £69, start tracking your steps and you could fund the balance. Your minimum monthly payment will be £0 and your maximum monthly payment will be £12.50.
How it works
Apple Watch Series 2 starts at £369 so you’ll make an initial upfront payment from £69 followed by 24 monthly payments of between £0 and £12.50. Upfront payments vary depending on the model you choose, but the monthly payments are still between £0 and £12.50.
To earn a monthly saving of £2.50, £5, £7.50 or £12.50, here’s how many activity points you’ll need:
To fully fund the balance of the cost of your Apple Watch Series 2 or Apple Watch Nike+ earn 160 activity points every month and stay with us for the entire purchase period. Take a look at all the ways you can earn Vitality points for getting active.
From early 2017, we’ll be changing the maximum number of Vitality activity points you can earn in a day from 10 to 8. This will affect the amount of activity you’ll need to do to reduce your monthly Direct Debit payments. If you take out a plan before this change comes into effect, it will be applied from your first renewal date.

To get an Apple Watch through Vitality, you need to be on one of the following plans; a VitalityHealth Personal Healthare plan, VitalityHealth Business or Corporate Healthcare plan with Vitality Plus or a VitalityLife plan with Vitality Plus or Optimser.
When will I be able to get an Apple Watch through Vitality?
If you’re on an eligible Personal Healthcare plan or VitalityLife plan you can get an Apple Watch now.
If you’re the insured employee on an eligible Business or Corporate Healthcare plan, you’ll be able to get an Apple Watch from renewal following 1st October 2016. Visit the ‘My plan’ page on the Member Zone to check your plan renewal date.
The number of Vitality activity points you need to earn to reduce your monthly Direct Debit payment will stay the same, so this means that you’ll need to exercise more regularly to reduce your monthly payment. The following examples show how it might affect you:
If you're moderately active
If you're moderately active and do 2 x 10,000 steps (5 points for each) and 1 x 30 minute run a week (10 points) you would have previously earned 80 points a month.
To get the same saving you’ll need to earn another 8 points by doing either 1 x extra 30 minute run or 12,500 steps a month (8 points), 2 x extra 10,000 steps per month (10 points) or 3 x extra 7,000 steps per month (9 points).
If you’re very active and want to make the maximum saving each month
If you’re super fit and active and want to aim for the maximum saving of £12.50 every month then instead of earning 40 points through 4 high intensity workouts, you’ll have to do 5 high intensity workouts (12,500 steps or equivalent) a week or 4 high intensity and 2 medium intensity workouts (e.g. 4 x 12,500 steps and 2 x 10,000 steps).
