Zurich, Switzerland - PartnerRe is pleased to announce the launch of its wearables pilot together with dacadoo, a pioneer in the digital health space.
The pilot will enable PartnerRe to gather real-time health and wellness data and first-hand experience in order to provide its life and health clients worldwide with actionable insights into leveraging wearables to more accurately underwrite risks and better engage with their customers.
As part of this pilot, PartnerRe has engaged PartnerRe employees across its Paris and Zurich locations, on a voluntary basis, to participate in a six month pilot designed to assess the efficacy of wearables and wellness platforms in changing people’s behavior with regard to health.

dacadoo has developed an easy-to-use, wireless, secure and fun way to manage your personal health & fitness from a lifestyle, wellness and chronic disease perspective called the dacadoo health platform.
The platform calculates your personal dacadoo Health Score, a number from 1 (poor) to 1’000 (excellent). It is a directional relative indicator of your current health and fitness status in real-time. By integrating gaming and social networking principles, dacadoo motivates you to be active in an easy way by automatically tracking and comparing your personal health, fitness and lifestyle.
The dacadoo health platform enables the tracking of over 100 fitness activities (outdoor and indoor sports) either over the mobile dacadoo tracker app or via manual entry. The dacadoo energy models are based on MET (metabolic equivalent of Task)* which measures the intensity of a physical activity. *Compendium of Physical Activity, Stanford University
