【看英文中國郵報學英文】美國智能手錶研發大廠Fibit在8月21日公布將與新加坡健康促進委員會合作以促進國民健康。

Fitbit, the San Francisco-based wearables company, announced on Aug. 21 that it will be partnering with Singapore’s Health Promotion Board (HPB) in improving the nation’s health. 

Fibit與健康促進委員會共同合作推出「Live Healthy SG」倡議。藉時,裝置能夠提供使用者個人化的健康管理,如健康飲食並且鼓勵多多運動,讓全民邁向更健康的生活

The company won a contract to provide fitness trackers and services for the new health initiative, Live Healthy SG. The devices will provide users with personalized health advice, such as healthy eating and encouraging physical activity, in an effort to push the nation towards a healthier and more active lifestyle. 

新加坡乘載著約5百多萬的人民,平均壽命為世界之冠,且以健全完善的健保系統著稱。然而,近年來慢性疾病逐年上升,如糖尿病和高血壓,引發政府對國民健康的憂慮

Singapore, an island city-state with 5.6 million people, tops the world in life expectancy and has a healthcare system known for its efficiency and widespread accessibility. However, growing rate of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, has raised concerns for the government. 

只要公民註冊這個計畫,就能獲得免費Fibit智能手錶,但前提是必須月繳10元新加坡幣(約台幣220元) 一年,並且同意將健康紀錄分享給健康促進委員會。

Citizens who subscribe to the program will receive a Fitbit tracker for free but under the condition that they will commit to a monthly payment of SGD$10 (USD$7.22) for a year and share health data with HPB. 

這個計畫將於10月開始,希望註冊人數能達到一百萬人。

The program will be launched in October with the goal of hopefully enrolling one million Singaporeans. 

Fibit公司表示:「這是公司第一次以穿戴裝置與數位健康平台,和國家公共衛生計畫合作。」

“This is Fitbit’s first major integration of a digital health platform and wearables into a national public health programme globally,” the company said.
