Or use your points to get gift cards from popular retailers like CVS, Amazon, Target and Best Buy. Find out which rewards you’re eligible for by downloading and logging in to Attain.
How is it determined which rewards I am eligible for?

Do I need an Apple Watch?
Yes. Activity from your Apple Watch — along with your Aetna health history — powers the program.
Can I earn an Apple Watch?
Depending on your health plan, you could be eligible to earn a base model Apple Watch Series 3 (38 mm) over 24 months. If eligible, you will purchase the watch using the Attain app. All you’ll pay initially is a one-time activation fee of $7 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.
*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.

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.

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.
Attain: growth encouraged
I’m gonna have to disagree with the other reviews for the most part. I’ve had the app for a little over half a year and been keeping up off and on, not as much as I should... but working on it!
The activity goal starts at 3 days and moves up. My current daily goal is 600, I believe because that is what my watch is set to. If I do any exercise that day, including a chill 30 minute walk, I’m fairly likely to hit that goal. I am currently training for a half marathon and most days are easy to hit. Off days are more of a challenge, but I appreciate the goal of some movement, as I don’t take rest days to mean non-existent movement.
That said, there are a couple bugs with points though they are typically uploaded later to compensate. They have daily information/goals to try which add some flavor to with mental, physical, social, and spiritual health. Was very impressed by these.
I earned a $50 gift card to this point, and I think that is fair, considering I’m being paid for being healthy. Thanks for the motivation and half off Nike shoes, guys!!
