Details on how to purchase your devices.

All UA employees will have the opportunity to purchase Fitbit devices at reduced rates and to participate in campus-wide wellness challenges!

This is a System-wide initiative, so you will be able to challenge individuals at UAB, UAH and the UA System Office.

  • Friends and family may not purchase devices. Only full-time and benefit eligible employees.
  • Each full-time, benefit eligible employee will receive an email from UA Wellness with an access code allowing them to buy devices at that time.
  • Employees may purchase an unlimited number of devices at a discounted rate from the online storefront.
  • You will not be reimbursed for Fitbit purchases made outside of the UA System Fitbit Program online storefront. Discounts will only be available through this storefront.

UA System Fitbit Program Discounted Pricing


What if I already have a Fitbit Device?

Great! If you do not purchase a device but would like to use your current Fitbit device in the wellness challenges, join the program by completing the form above.

How will the Wellness Challenges Work?

You will be prompted to join the ‘UA System Fitbit Program’ when you set up your device online and all your activity will sync automatically with the UA Wellness program.

Ongoing Fitbit wellness programs will count as Qualifying WellBAMA Rewards programs once completed with an average of 10,000 steps per day over the course of the challenge.


What Information will be shared if I sync my Fitbit to the UA System Fitbit Program?

When you consent to the program only your exercise activity will be shared. All personal information (height, weight, GPS location) will not be shared with UA System from Fitbit. That information is confidential within your Fitbit consent.

  • Some of the dashboard features and individual group leaderboards are designed to let participants connect with coworkers and compare Fitbit data with each other. This data includes a participant’s name, avatar, steps, active minutes, last sync date, as well as a link to the participant’s public Fitbit profile.
  • What administrators of the site can see:
    • Aggregate data: De-identified summary of program information.
    • Individual data: Includes participants, photo, name, sync date, steps, distance, floors, and active minutes. Fitbit does not provide access to GPS location, or sensitive health information such as sleep or weight.
