Coach by Cigna

Samsung and Cigna are launching a new version of the Coach by Cigna mobile app, which uses simple questions to identify users’ personality type, understand their wants, needs and preferences, and provide appropriate programs to help with diet, exercise, sleep, stress and weight.

“We tested, we learned and now we’re putting our expertise into our next generation of Coach by Cigna,” said Heather Valteris, Cigna Global Head of Channel and Partnership Marketing. “With several simple questions, we can get to know you and your preferences, and the best ways to help get you to where you want to be.”

Coach by Cigna is made to complement Samsung’s S Health app, and available as a free download for select Samsung smartphones.According to Samsung, the application can identify personality types such as “Planner,” “Day Dreamer” or “Explorer”; and determine aptitude levels to help prioritize their health and understanding of health issues.

Users get to benefit from motivational messages, instructional videos and support from health coaches so they can focus on improvements in five categories: nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress and weight management. It also provides quantifiable health activities and achievement badges.

Coach by Cigna’s programs are made to complement Samsung’s S Health app, which is made to track users’ everyday activities, receive coaching, and improve their fitness with various training programs.

Coach by Cigna is available as a free download for a number of Samsung phones, including the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge that have been updated to the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
