Employees at a three companies are now able to get the Apple Watch for $25 — so long as they meet monthly activity goals.

Leveraging the Apple Watch’s health tracking sensors, employees of Amgen, DaVita HealthCare Partners and Lockton must satisfy those monthly goals over a two year period. The aim is to create a healthier workforce, and reduce insurance premiums for employers.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Businesses offering the discounted Apple Watch to employees are going through Vitality Group, not Apple. It’s doubtful Apple has a direct hand in this arrangement.

The catch? Employees who don’t meet the monthly goals over that two-year span will have to pay the full price for the Apple Watch.

It’s a decent arrangement if you’re serious about a healthier lifestyle through exercise, and the ‘early termination fee’ for not exercising is an interesting motivator, if not an expensive one.
