Just keep in mind that you need to have a Discovery Credit Card to get the watch. That is a monthly premium that you cannot get back via points. Unless you already have a card in which case you would have been paying for it already.

Anyone with a Fitbit connected to Vitality that can give some feedback about whether it works well or not? Keen to get one...

I got the fitbit charge HR. So far it's been working well and seems pretty accurate. The only thing is Discovery still does not recognise the HR data from the fitbit so I only get points for steps.

The greatest benefit I've seen is my heart rate is during exercise but also my sleep pattern (which is horrid)

I want to get a simple, cheap step counter for my Mom, but one that will interface with Vitality so she can get points for her steps. No HR monitoring required. She has a basic Android phone. Recommendations please.
(PS I'm going to the UK in May so could get something there as well if there are cheaper options)

Fitbit flex 2. I believe they are now on special at Makro for around R1500

Good day.

If Anybody can please assist me with this:

I am using an old phone from a friend and the samsung health app was linked to his discovery app.

We delink the app from his Discovery profile but I still cant link the Samsung APP with my Discovery profile. It gives me a message: Sorry the samsung app is already linked to another vitality account, please delink app from that account first. But we have done that and still nothing has changed. Discovery is taking ages to come back to me.

Thanx

What about wiping Data for the app under application management (whatever the name).

I imported a few Garmin ANT+ heart rate monitors. They are about $15. These work with the Samsung S Health app which syncs workouts to the Discovery app.
