Insurer offers free Apple Watches in program that had focused on Fitbit

This seems pretty brilliant to me. I've often wondered why heath insurers didn't concentrate on prevention as its so much more cost effective. Things like gyms and saunas.

My doctor was unaware of this study... I turned him onto it.

Think about it... Sauna use associated with reduced risk of cardiac, all-cause mortality

"The risk of fatal CHD events was 23 percent lower for 2 to 3 bathing sessions per week and 48 percent lower for 4 to 7 sauna sessions per week compared to once a week."

Basically taking a sauna 4 to 7 times a week cuts all cause mortality by half in men 42 to 60 years old! That's astounding. Ya gotta wonder why Kaiser et all doesn't put free saunas all over the place.


Only one gym in my area offers saunas.


The Apple watch fits right into that paradigm.
