You know you need to exercise more, but there’s always next week, or the week after. To entice you to stop procrastinating, your company or insurer might soon reward you for wearing a fitness device to track your steps, heart rate and more.
For instance, in one program announced Wednesday, some workers can buy a $350 Apple Watch for just $25 by meeting exercise goals for two years. Miss goals, and see your discount shrink. Vitality, a provider of disease-prevention and lifestyle programs, is initially bringing the offer to US employees at three companies, along with John Hancock life-insurance customers. It has been testing the program in South Africa since December.

Amazon drops encryption for its Fire tablets at a time when Apple is fighting over iPhone encryption
Amazon.com Inc has quietly dropped support for disk encryption on its Fire tablets, saying the feature that secures devices by scrambling data was little used by customers.
Privacy advocates and some users criticized the move, which came to light on Thursday even as Apple Inc was waging an unprecedented legal battle over U.S. government demands that the iPhone maker help unlock an encrypted phone used by San Bernardino shooter Rizwan Farook.
On-device encryption scrambles data so that the device can only be accessed if the user enters the correct password. Cryptologist Bruce Schneier said Amazon’s move to remove the feature was “stupid” and called on the company to restore it.

The Microsoft HoloLens operates on Windows 10 and unlike the Rift, requires no tethering to a separate computer.
Microsoft says it will start shipping a developer version of its augmented reality device, HoloLens, for $3,000 on March 30.
That’s around the same time Facebook’s Oculus will begin shipping the consumer version of its Rift virtual-reality headset for $600.
