Ok so I know this deal is not for everyone. But for those who are Prudential Vitality members they have partnered with Apple.

You pay £69 up front and then you sign up to a 24 month direct debit, if you do enough exercise then you can get it for free each month or if you do none you get the Watch for £12.50 per month.

42mm is £99 up front

Depending on how much exercise you do it goes down from £12.50, £10.00, £7.50, £5.00 & £nil.

For those that aren't members and NEED life insurance you can take out life cover, other benefits include free starbucks, free Vue Cinema tickets and iTunes vouchers.

Life cover not the much more expensive health cover.

Worst case it's interest free for 24 months

Its £99 for all 42mm watches.

i really like this idea. a good way to give you some inspiration and motivation to get fit and lose some weight.

just looking at the minimum requirements and to get it for "free" every month, you'd have to track 12,500 steps a day for a minimum of 16 days a month.

although the rough estimate is that 2,000 steps equals one mile, so it's expecting you to walk 6 or 7 miles a day which won't always be possible if you're particularly overweight I suppose - even 5 miles might be too much.

a good few other things to do though i suppose.

how much is an average vitality membership?

30 mins of increased heart rate = 10 points too

Plus 3 times a week = £5 a month still way cheaper than full price

You'd be looking to pay around £328 total for the watch for the duration of the 24 month agreement at that level, if you also include the £4.50 a month that it appears to be for vitality membership.

so the absolute cheapest you could get it would be £207 for the 44mm version if you cleared 160 points per month, every month.

No option to buy the Nike plus watch

Just a thought.. how does the watch track the steps needed.. surely just leaving the watch on top of your washing machine on full spin should add a few extra steps.. just a thought dont shoot me

Yep there are ways and means

This would be ideal for me, always running around delivering parcels all day Monday to Friday...not so much at the weekend but according to my Apple Watch (oldest one) I do an average of 15,000 steps a day between Monday to Friday

Think I said life cover not Health Insurance

Life insurance starts from £5 per month plus vitality payment

Plus only get it if you need life cover

I'm afraid from January that's changing currently you get 10 points for a 12500 daily step record
From January the points changes to 8 points for 12500 steps therefore you will have to do 12500 steps 5 days a week to achieve 40 points

Also to get vitality costs about £20-£30 a month it's called vitality optimiser only on that plan can you get the extra benefits the cheaper life cover has none
Of the extra benefits like free coffee cinema ticket etc etc you will only get life cover

To get Vitality Optimiser or Vitality Plus, your protection premiums need to be £20 per month or more for a single policy, or £30 per month or more for a joint policy

Wish mine was that cheap

I still do like the idea of incentivising this sort of thing. obviously it goes without saying that good health should be incentive enough, as it should be, but for some people it still isn't that black and white.

that's why i'm always surprised that only william hill take weight loss bets.

Vitality has changed a lot you used to get 10 points for a gym visit nows it's only 5 and the steps are changing as well the company that drives this deal is called discovery they have these plans in South Africa and New Zealand they really increased the levels you needed to achieve to get the benefits they know people will sign up pay £480-£600 (just for the vitality membership) and you still have to pay up to £300 for your Apple Watch over 2 years if you don't hit your targets and the large majority won't hit there target look at gym memberships people take them after xmas then don't visit for months this will be the same this plan is great if your fit go to the gym 4-5 times a week because to get this watch cheap you will need that level of commitment to your excercise regime

true but they work 39
Weeks a year a friend of mine is a teacher trust me they enjoy the down time so that will leave you 26 weeks short over 2 years so that will cost £99 for the watch £80+ in dd payments and £600 for the plan £779 over 2 years for a £399 watch lol

colder than Olafs butt hole

Really disappointing to see so many opinionated people voting this cold based on not wanting to take out life cover when that was not what the post is about, the post clearly states for vitality members

Thanks for your negativity, however please take into account the subject of this deal - for vitality members.

As an aside I'm with vitality as prudential were the cheapest for life cover for my wife and I. Plus the vitality part costs an extra £3 a month. So to be clear for those that want this it could be only £36 a year cost for something most people have anyway.

Now that I have it get

£5 of coffee from Starbucks a week
£20 of Vue cinema tickets a week
At least two songs a month from iTunes (also had £50 worth of vouchers too so far this year)
I got two bits of Garmin half price (now 40% off)
I've had 2 pairs of 50% off lowest price trainers from Sweatshop
I've had £200 cash back from plan for reaching platinum
Now an iWatch for potentially £69 to £150

This is a really really good deal for those that are Vitality members or those that want / need life cover and are active

By the way I'm giving my opinion as a vitality member as well I have already bought the watch however as a member who has seen the benefits decrease you seem a little uneducated let me explain
The iTunes benefit you're talking about is being removed can you or will you confirm this it is being removed
I had the mobiles.co.uk benefit which in total as a platinum member i received £15 a month off a new contract over 2 years losing me £360 over the 2 years which I took advantage of which also was scrapped
it's interesting that the main benefit you don't mention which is the halfprice Virgin Active Gyms membership which saves me a lot of money(you have to have the flexible plan)which also I have which says me a great deal more money than the benefits that you're talking about
my opinion is not based on negativity my opinion is based on the fact this plan when it first came out was tremendously beneficial
And still does but
as it has become more popular more of the benefits have been removed this is a good scheme but the prices I quoted are real as a single member you must pay between £20-£30 a month for this package of benefits which for some people is a lot of money to pay to get a cheap watch
