FAQ Sanitas Active app

Step 1: Sign up

Step 2: Verify your details

Step 3: Connect a fitness tracker

The app lists compatible fitness trackers and guides you through the connection process. You can add additional trackers or change the data source at any time under Settings/Data sources. If you want to track cycling activities with the Health Kit, you need an additional app such as Strava. You’ll find a comprehensive list here

The daily target is calculated on the basis of your personal activity score. The activity score is based on your exercise habits and takes all activities tracked by the app into account: steps (number), cycling (minutes) and swimming (minutes). The app starts with an activity score of 70. This value increases based on your exercise habits and success. You should be able to reach your daily target comfortably, and your target is continually increased.

You receive a virtual coin for every daily target reached. Sometimes we also set a challenge for you. If you accept this challenge, you have twice the benefits: You receive coins as usual for your activity and, if you complete the challenge, you get an additional reward.

Your coins can be exchanged for vouchers to spend in the online shops of our partners. You’ll find all our partner offers in the menu under “Vouchers”. Here you’ll see how many coins you need for a voucher and the monetary value of the voucher.

If you have enough coins in your account, you can redeem them for the selected offer. The voucher will then be activated and a voucher code will be displayed. You also have the option of donating the value of your coins to PluSport.

Plus you can save a partner offer as a favourite. You’ll be sent a message once you’ve collected enough coins for this offer.
