NHS to give out Fitbit-style gadgets in bid to cut diabetes

More than 5,000 people are to test apps, gadgets and wristbands similar to Fitbits which will track sleep and their activities as part of a 12-month trial. 

Public Health England said the pilot scheme – which will run in eight areas of the country – is “the next logical step in diabetes prevention”. 

The technology being used includes a Buddi Nujjer device – which monitors activity, sleep and eating and has an app which can help with diet – while people will also be given educational software and personal coaching sessions.
