You’ll qualify for the Apple Watch Offer if you have one of the following Vitality plans (each a "Plan"):

  1. Health insurance - any private health insurance plan.
  2. Business health insurance
           a. any small business health insurance plan.
           b. any corporate health insurance plan or trust scheme administered by Vitality, with Vitality Plus benefits
  3. Life insurance - any life insurance plan with Vitality Plus benefits. You’ll also need to pay at least £45 a month for an individual Plan or £60 a month for a joint Plan, excluding any fee paid for Vitality Plus.

You must be 18 years or over.

Eligibility for this offer is subject to financial circumstances and status.

If you have a joint health insurance or life insurance Plan, only one Apple Watch per Plan is available. For all adult members of a joint Plan to be eligible for an Apple Watch, each member must also hold separate, sole eligible Plans in their own right.

For the avoidance of doubt, if you have a joint or family Plan:

  • only one member named under the Plan can order Apple Watch for their own personal use
  • the member who owns the Apple Watch must earn the activity points for the monthly payments
  • no other member named on the Plan can order Apple Watch.

You cannot have a further Apple Watch during your loan period, even if you've paid it off early.

If you have a Personal Health Fund (PHF) in your Plan, you cannot use it to pay for the upfront payment or loan payments.

Apple Watch is for your own personal use and gifting or resale of the device is prohibited.

We reserve all rights if we suspect, or find, you to have resold or gifted your Apple Watch.

You are not permitted to transfer your Apple Watch benefit to another member on your Plan.

We reserve the right to (i) refuse the provision of Apple Watch; (ii) request a return of your Apple Watch; (iii) request the Lender to cancel the Credit Agreement; (iv) deduct activity points; or (v) any other remedy, if: 

  • someone else uses your Apple Watch so that you benefit; or
  • you have provided false or misleading identity information to Apple.

To purchase an Apple Watch from Vitality, you will need to pass a credit check and make an upfront payment. This will vary depending on the model you choose.

In addition, you need to agree to a 36-month online consumer credit agreement of 0% APR with the Lender ("Credit Agreement").

You must complete and enter your details into the Credit Agreement for yourself, and strictly not on behalf of anybody else. You must use your own bank account details.

You will set up a variable Direct Debit for 36 months in case payments are due.

If you earn the required activity points, we will make payment contributions to your Apple Watch. All activity points earned from any Vitality linked device will count.

We will only provide Vitality contributions to your Apple Watch purchased through Vitality.

If no-one on your Plan has had an Apple Watch before, depending on your monthly activity levels, you will pay between £0 and £9.50 a month for Apple Watch Series 7; or between £0 and £6.50 a month for Apple Watch SE.

If this is the second or later Apple Watch purchased on your Plan through Vitality, depending on your monthly activity levels, you will pay between £0 and £6.50 a month for Apple Watch Series 7.

We will calculate your monthly payment contribution from your previous month's activity points. This will affect your variable Direct Debit payment in the following month.

If you are unable to make your payments, the Lender reserves the right to cancel your Credit Agreement.

If you cancel, lapse, switch your Plan to a non-eligible plan or switch your Plan to another insurer before your final payment:

  • we will no longer make any contributions to the Lender on your behalf;
  • we will not reinstate our payment contributions, even if you are eligible again at a later date;
  • your Credit Agreement with the Lender will continue under the terms of that agreement.

Your Credit Agreement with the Lender lasts until your final payment date, even if you pay off your loan early.

If you change your mind, you can cancel up to 14 days after the day of delivery (the “cooling off period”).

You need to let us know that you have decided to cancel.

If you cancel within the cooling off period, we will refund you your initial upfront payment.

We reserve the right to reduce your refund, if you have mishandled your Apple Watch and it has reduced its value.

Apple Watch Series 7 requires iPhone 6s or later with iOS 15 or later.
Apple Watch SE requires iPhone 6s or later with iOS 14 or later.

You’ll need to complete the following steps before ordering Apple Watch:

  • register for Member Zone; and
  • complete your Health Review in Member Zone.

Then, when you receive your Apple Watch, you’ll need to:

  • download the Vitality Member app onto your iPhone; and
  • link the Apple Health app to the Vitality Member app, so we can track your activity from your Apple Watch.

By purchasing Apple Watch, you agree to the use of Apple’s chosen courier and their corresponding terms and conditions. 

Apple is not a participant or sponsor of Vitality Active Rewards.

To award your Vitality activity points, we will exchange information with Apple. You can view our Privacy Notice here.

If there is a delay in awarding your Vitality activity points, we will rectify any payments. We will run a regular cashback process.

We will pay your cashback into your nominated bank account. You can view and update your bank details in the 'Update My Details' section of the Member Zone.

We will only count Vitality activity points earned by the member who took out the benefit.

You may disconnect Apple Watch from Vitality at any time via the Vitality Member app.
