UAH offering discounted Fitbit products, beginning early November 2016! All full-time UAH 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 UA, UAB, and the UA System Office. How to Purchase Devices The online storefront will tentatively be opening on November 7th, 2016 to purchase discounted devices. Each full-time, benefit eligible employee will receive an email from Charger Fit with an access code allowing them to buy devices at that time. You will only be able to purchase devices if you are a full-time and benefit eligible employee. 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.

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 Charger Fit Rewards programs once completed. Upcoming challenges and additional program information to come. 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. Resale Policies and State Ethics Guidelines Any University of Alabama in Huntsville employees purchasing Fitbit products through the UA System Fitbit Program are “public employees” subject to the Alabama ethics laws. As such, employees may not resell any Fitbit products purchased through the UA System Fitbit Program for a profit. Any such sale would be considered using your public position for personal gain, and would be a violation of the Ethics Act. Campus officials will investigate any reports of employees reselling such products for more than they paid for them. Any employee found to have profited from such sale is subject to being banned from program participation, to workplace discipline, and to being reported to the State Ethics Commission, which can levy criminal charges.
