FAQs

To earn Vitality activity points, you need to use the Apple Health app on your iPhone.

It can take step data from your iPhone (if you're using an iPhone 6s or later) or steps and heart rate workouts from your Apple Watch.

The Vitality Member app, as well as giving you easy access to your Vitality points statement, Vitality Age and Active Rewards if your plan is eligible, is also able to take some data from Apple Health and use that to award Vitality activity points for your workouts.

You can see how many activity points you’ve earned on your Vitality points statement on our Member Zone. Once you’re eligible to start earning Vitality contributions towards your variable Direct Debit, you'll also be able to track your activity points on the sidebar on the Apple Watch page.
