Singapore has announced it will pay its citizens to use a new fitness app that will work with the Apple Watch. 

The government will run a two-year programme starting in October that will see users given cash rewards for hitting fitness goals.

People will be able to earn up to £215 in eVouchers, which can then be spent on things like cinema tickets, food, and clothing.

Singapore hopes the scheme will encourage people to pick up healthy habits, which will then continue after the scheme has finished.

The city-state already runs a health scheme that rewards people for completing challenges via their smartphones.

The app sets users daily health goals, which earn points, which can be redeemed into coins, which can be spent in the real world
