Designed in collaboration with Apple, the Attain app combines your health history with Apple Watch® activity to offer personalized goals*, achievable actions, and rewards.**

This app integrates with the Health app and helps you:

• Earn rewards for hitting daily active calorie goals.
• Get reminders for important healthy actions: flu shot and other vaccinations; scheduling primary care visits and screenings; and refilling and picking up prescriptions.
• Get tips to sleep better, improve nutrition and increase mindfulness.
• Build healthy habits through challenges and daily activity.
• Get support for serious health moments, such as finding lower-cost options for lab and imaging tests like MRIs.

Who can enroll?
The Attain program is available to Aetna® commercial medical members aged 18 and above. Other eligibility and participation requirements, including certain state restrictions and exclusions, may apply.

How do I earn rewards?
Hit your activity goals and complete healthy actions to earn points. Activity goals are based on your weight and sex. Some healthy actions are based on your personal health history. Meet your weekly activity goals to earn enough points each month to cover your Apple Watch payment (if eligible). Or use your points to get gift cards from popular retailers. Find out which rewards you’re eligible for by downloading and logging in to Attain.

Do I need an Apple Watch?
Yes. Activity from your Apple Watch — along with your Aetna health history — powers the program.

How can I earn an Apple Watch?
Order a base model in Attain then pay it off with points over 24 months. All you’ll pay initially is a one-time activation fee plus sales tax. You can choose to upgrade to a different model for an additional up-front cost. You will use the points you earn in Attain to cover all or part of the monthly payment of your Apple Watch.

What if I already have my own Apple Watch?
If you already have your own Apple Watch, you can use your points on gift cards from popular retailers.

*Goals and suggested health actions should not replace your doctor’s advice. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from meeting your goals, or if your doctor advises you not to take part in physical activity, there may be an opportunity for you to earn the same reward in a different way.

**Eligibility for particular incentives varies by health plan type and location, including availability of Apple Watch as a reward. Download the Attain app and sign in to see which categories of incentives are available to you. Participation in Attain requires an iPhone 5s or later with iOS 12 or later, and an Apple Watch Series 1 or later.

Ok if could set realistic daily goals and purchase watch through app.

Started to use this app as was offered by my early insurance and incentive to get moving. I tried to order the watch and was never able to, would take me to start of app. After several attempts to order Apple Watch and not able to as app kept freezing, in order to get app to work had to click on have my own watch. Needless to say had to purchase a watch and cost of paying up front to get so to work wish I could have gotten through app and pay monthly. I called customer service to inform of what happened and they advised they would eventually offer purchase of watch to those who couldn’t purchase due to app issues, this was a year ago and still nothing. Liked the idea of paying monthly and use points to pay for watch monthly but that didn’t happen for me. Would still like to get watch through app as watch I purchased is not working well.

Goals of hitting 750 daily points is somewhat attainable if you are very active. Even working in a shipping and receiving area I don’t reach my daily goal unless I track other work out from moving packages and walking around to deliver packages as nonstop for 30-45 mins. Goes from 3 times a week to 7 days to achieve daily goal. Watch is set to 600 as daily goal, most days I reach this but app has me at 750 and don’t reach this goal so much. Wish there was a way to change this to a more realistic goal.

Realistic goals for me!

I am able to complete daily actions and earn points even while there are some weeks I haven’t met goals due to illness. I haven’t experienced the issues many have had, yes goals were increased but even then did not require me to work out every single day, but as long as I am semi-active most of the day (I.e. getting up from my desk and walking around on my break), I am still able to make my goals. I Love this app! I have had since January, “payments” for my watch started in February, I haven’t had to make a payment yet- and if I took the next month “off” I’d still have enough points to cover 2 months of payments. I love it! It’s motivating without feeling unreachable. Today I actually got a notification that they’ve adjusted calorie goals for members- mine actually went down, which is good for my points, as this new goal will be easy- but I am a little disappointed because my previous goal requires that I stay conscious of my movement and I had to put in at least a little effort every day to stay focused on it. Hopefully they’ll use current activity to gradually increase goals. Overall I’m very happy!

Overall I am happy with the app and am happy to be able to “work off” the payment for an Apple Watch. But like others I have a problem with when you get to 7 days required for the weekly bonus.

This isn’t like training for a marathon, the requirements aren’t so strenuous that you need a day of rest. The goals seem pretty much like push yourself a little more than usual and you’ll meet your goal. So I’m not going to complain about the 7 days as a whole. But, as a source of motivation, I think it’s bad. If you miss one day, that’s it. Your week is shot, and you will pretty much have to pay something for the watch that month. There is no margin of error and it is not possible to make up the 2000 points for that week by any other means other than paying the $2 for that missed weekly bonus.

And again, the $2 isn’t the end of the world either. I just don’t think that is effective in motivation. To me, it feels more punitive if you don’t hit your goal. If it was maybe changed to a weekly average or something, you would have the motivation to work more to make up that difference. As of now, if you have a work trip or something and are unable to do much on Monday, then there is no motivation to do anything for the rest of that week, because you cannot make it up.
