DURBAN – Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa is proud to announce a new partnership with Discovery Vitality.
From 1 February 2019, Huawei has become part of the Discovery Vitality fitness device family, making it possible for Vitality members to link a Huawei device and Health app to Vitality to earn points for recorded workouts.
Consumers using Huawei devices and the Huawei Health app to earn Vitality points can track steps, speed and average heart rate, depending on the capability of the device you use.
"Health apps are being utilised more than ever before. Technology advancements and access to information on personal health have made it much easier for consumers to connect with and track their health thanks to apps such as Huawei Health," said Likun Zhao, VP Huawei Consumer Business Group, Southern Africa.
Dinesh Govender, Chief Executive Officer of Discovery Vitality, said, “We are excited to welcome Huawei South Africa as a new partner and enabling more Vitality members to earn points for physical activity recorded with the Huawei Health app. One of our main goals is to continue to increase engagement in physical activity, which acts as a trigger for other healthy lifestyle choices and helps prevent the onset of noncommunicable health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers".
