Garmin, a global leader in wearable technology for over a decade, produces a range of attractive wearables with long battery life and a wide array of metrics.
Garmin wearable devices provide an objective way to measure both the quantity and quality of various activities, delivering insightful metrics like intensity minutes, stress, sleep, and pulse ox1 that help users better understand their overall health.
“Garmin Health is excited to collaborate with the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association on an innovative program like Blue365,” said Sean McNamara, Garmin Health Manager. “Garmin wearable devices encourage both physical and emotional health. Combined with the personalized digital health tools available in Blue365, members will have access to the information they need to help them live healthier lives.”
“Our goal is to encourage Americans to take a proactive role in maintaining and improving their health, and that can start with fitness,” said Mark Talluto, vice president, Strategy and Analytics at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
“By adding Garmin’s wearables to Blue365’s health and wellness offerings, we can provide Blue Cross and Blue Shield members another way to help achieve their goals through a deeper understanding of their health and fitness information.”
The ever-expanding Garmin fitness segment develops technologies to enhance and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Garmin Health provides enterprise solutions that leverage Garmin wearables and the high-quality sensor data they produce for applications in the corporate wellness, population health, and patient monitoring markets.
Blue365 is available to members of the 24 participating BCBS companies, as well as the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Government-wide Service Benefit Plan, also known as the Federal Employee Program® (FEP®). Blue365 features weekly deals and long-running special offers from top national retailers and vendors.
In addition to the special offer on Garmin devices, Blue365 offers exclusive deals on fitness trackers and gear, gym memberships, healthy eating options, stress management services, hearing aids, vision and dental products, and more.
