Unlock the Power of Fitness Trackers with Your Wellness Spending Account

Are you ready to take your fitness journey to the next level? Did you know that your Wellness Spending Account (WSA) might cover the cost of a new fitness tracker? That’s right—devices that help you stay on top of your health and wellness goals could be eligible for reimbursement through your WSA.


Why Invest in a Fitness Tracker?

Fitness trackers are more than just trendy gadgets; they are powerful tools that can help you monitor and improve your health. Here are some types of fitness trackers you might consider:

  • Basic Activity Trackers: Devices like the Fitbit Inspire, Garmin Vivofit, and Xiaomi Mi Band track steps, distance, and calories burned.

  • Advanced Fitness Trackers: The Fitbit Charge, Garmin Vivosmart, and Huawei Band series offer features like heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and GPS functionality.

  • Smartwatches with Fitness Features: Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watch, and Fitbit Versa blend the functionality of a smartwatch with comprehensive fitness tracking.

  • Specialized Fitness Trackers: Devices such as the Whoop Strap and Oura Ring focus on detailed health metrics, including recovery, strain, and sleep analysis.

  • Kids’ Fitness Trackers: Devices like the Garmin Vivofit Jr. and Fitbit Ace are designed to help kids stay active.

 

Maximize Your WSA Benefits

Using your WSA to purchase a fitness tracker is a smart way to invest in your health. These devices can provide you with invaluable insights into your physical activity, helping you to set and achieve personal health goals. However, it’s important to note that not all WSAs cover fitness trackers. Make sure to check the specific items eligible under your WSA before making a purchase.

Important Considerations

  • Tax Implications: Keep in mind that any reimbursement for fitness trackers through your WSA is considered a taxable benefit.

  • Eligibility Verification: If your WSA says “Fitness Trackers (Taxable)” as an eligible item, any fitness tracking device is eligible.

 

If you’re ready to enhance your fitness routine with a new tracker, check your WSA details for eligibility today.


Disclaimer: Coverage for fitness trackers varies by WSA. Please verify your specific plan’s eligible expenses to confirm coverage.
