Apple and the government of Singapore on Tuesday announced their partnership on the health initiative LumiHealth, a personalized program to encourage healthy activity and behaviors using Apple Watch.

The program was designed by Singapore's Health Promotion Board in conjunction with Apple as part of the country's Smart Nation initiative, a national effort to leverage technology to deliver benefits to its citizens and businesses. The two-year program will be offered from late October 2020, Apple said in a statement.

Within the app, users will travel through worlds with an intergalactic explorer who guides them through tasks that are personalized based on their age, gender, and weight, according to Apple.

"Even as all of us around the world are dealing with the challenges of COVID-19, we must keep investing in our future. And there is no better investment than in our own personal health," said Heng Swee Keat, Singapore's deputy prime minister.

"Singapore has one of the world's leading healthcare systems, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to incorporate Apple Watch and LumiHealth into their holistic approach to well-being," said Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer.
