Media Release: Get Moving With Coach By Cigna On Samsung Note 4

  • Samsung Note 4 launches new Coach by Cigna digital health guidance for 36 countries and 26 languages.
  • Enter the Get Moving! with Coach by Cigna competition to train for Cigna Round the Bays.
  • Smart health – coaching made fun, helping you to assess, aspire and achieve a healthier life.

Cigna and Samsung, have joined forces to deliver the next generation of smart health coaching services. Coach by Cigna is a new addition to Samsung’s S Health*platform, and is available on every new Samsung Note 4.

S Health is a digital health guidance system designed to help people worldwide make better health a habit. The system allows users to collect and integrate health information from their smartphones and Samsung Gear devices. The Coach by Cigna app then enables them to create a personalised lifestyle improvement programme, and coaches them to achieve their individual health and wellbeing goals.

“We want to empower Kiwis with cutting edge health and fitness technology that can help them to achieve their health and wellbeing goals,” says Cigna Life Insurance CEO, Lance Walker. “Samsung has become the leader in the global smartphone market, and we’re excited to work together to provide a tool that is built on the experiences of Cigna’s global health coaches, nutritionists, behaviour specialists and nurses.”

“To celebrate launching Coach by Cigna, we’re excited to announce our Get Moving! with Coach by Cigna competition,” says Lance. Winners will put the Coach by Cigna app to the test as they train for Wellington’s annual fun run, Cigna Round the Bays, on 22 February 2015. “I’ll be leading by example and using the Coach by Cigna app to train for Round the Bays myself,” he adds.

“We’re increasingly focussing on how we can provide the health industry with technology solutions for their customers,” says Samsung Enterprise Director, Verdon Kelliher. “Coach by Cigna is an example of how global brands like Cigna and Samsung can partner at a global level, and deliver for customers locally, in New Zealand. In this case, enabling Cigna’s customers to improve their health and wellness via technology.”
