Activity trackers are getting more usage each day due to awesome programs like UnitedHealthcare Motion. UnitedHealthcare Motion is an employee benefit wellness feature created by United Healthcare, one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers. The program allows users to earn financial incentives for meeting step goals, but not just any incentives. Users have the ability to earn up to four dollars a day that can go towards health care related services such as copays and prescriptions. Samsung and Garmin activity trackers have already been implemented to use UnitedHealthcare Motion. The wellness program found that they had more than two thirds of eligible users had a registered device. Of those registered, over 66% of users used it actively for over a year.
