Chubb LifeBalance comprehensively assesses the lifestyle of users and provides a holistic view of health to help them to objectively measure and manage their own health condition.


Once users set their personal goals within the app, such as walking 5,000 steps a day, reducing snack consumption, and establishing a meditation and/or sleep routine etc., the coaching functionality starts to monitor and encourage the users to achieve their goals.


Chubb LifeBalance tracks and records over 115 different activities—including yoga, swimming, boxing, and meditation, and lets users invite their friends and family to join challenges and compete in these activities together. It connects with a full range of health devices and other apps such as Fitbit, Strava and Garmin.


Based on over 2,500 clinical papers and years of clinical data collected from over 300 million people, reputable teams from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) USA participated in building a credible health score system behind the app so that users can effectively monitor their overall health and well-being.


The health points, based on activities and goal achievements set on the app, can be exchanged for mobile vouchers at various coffee shops, gas stations, and grocery stores to enjoy varied benefits. These are only available as exclusive incentives to existing Chubb customers.


Edward Ler, Country President of Chubb's general insurance business in Korea said, "Chubb LifeBalance was created to offer more advanced and personalized health and well-being services for the customers in Korea who lead busy lifestyles. We believe Chubb LifeBalance will help our customers strive towards a sustainable and balanced lifestyle."


The app is currently available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
