Fitbit has introduced a new tab for COVID-19 in the official Fitbit app in selected countries. The new tab will help users to get all the information about coronavirus and offers several activities to stay fit in the home. Last month in the coronavirus pandemic situation, the company had announced to give free 90-days Fitbit Premium services to the new users. Now, to fight against the pandemic, Fitbit has introduced a special tab into the app to educate people. In the US, you can also contact online doctors if you have any concerns.
The new service called PlushCare has added to the app that has board certified doctors. You can contact the doctors if you need medical in ongoing conditions and prescription refills to urgent issues, like for screening for COVID-19. To get the services, you can become a member of PlushCare from the Fitbit app, and you will get a free 30 days trial. Once you become a member, then you can virtually appoint the doctor to get help.
Here is what Fitbit says about the Plushcare service.
PlushCare’s board-certified doctors can address medical needs from ongoing conditions and prescription refills to urgent issues, like screening for COVID-19. Become a member to get access to a 30-day free trial or login to your existing account to book your virtual appointment. The next available appointment is typically the same day and can be paid for with insurance or credit card.
The new COVID-19 tab supports in the US, UK, India, Canada, Australia, and many other European countries. To get the service, you have to set the language of the app in English. From today you will notice a new tab in the app. If not, then wait for a while that it is rolling slowly.
