Virgin Pulse Mobile App Keeps Getting Better:

You can now track and get rewarded for your steps right from your Android phone 4.4 or higher or iPhone 5S or higher!

Just download the latest app version (Android 3.0.42 and iOS 3.0.64). Then simply turn on motion activity when prompted (or under the Virgin Pulse app settings) and the steps will display in the app and on the member website. Your phone will then begin counting your steps with its native step-tracking capabilities. Pretty cool, right?

You can also view your monthly statement on the mobile app to see your rewards balance and all of your completed well-being activities.

Apple HealthKit:

You can now sync your steps from your Virgin Pulse account to the Apple HealthKit on iOS 8 phones. Just go to settings app, privacy, health, and allow Virgin Pulse to write data.

Apple Watch:
