Singapore and Apple partner on health initiative

The government of Singapore and Apple has announced to partner on Singapore’s national health initiative, LumiHealth, a personalised programme to promote health activity and behaviours of citizens by using Apple Watch. The programme was designed by Singapore’s Health Promotion Board and Apple as part of the country’s Smart Nation initiative. The LumiHealth app was designed with user privacy and security at its core, and the two-year programme will be available from late October 2020. Apple noted in the statement that no data from LumiHealth will be sold or shared for marketing purposes.
