This is a worrying move. One large insurer in the U.S. has said it'll only give cover if wearable fitness and health data devices are worn.
What happened to freedom of choice?

Many insurers usually offer discounts if new technology is used, but they don't refuse to insure people.

I wonder if they will have to rethink this.

I see & Agreed..
But do do a WiFi is free with that...

"Free" wi-fi is like unprotected or even protected sex with strangers whilst blindfold..<=Has never tempted me ..
You are putting your faith in their hygiene.. You are going to catch something..maybe not the first time, but eventually..
4G or when it arrives 5G is your friend..
This is not even health insurance - they're putting the requirement on Life Insurance policies and Term Life Insurance policies (even worse) so they can refuse you next year if it looks like your health is declining. :(

Depends on where you live..many places that would be illegal..as would requiring the same for health cover..and it still costs way less ( even with private health care "top ups" ) , for much better cover..

Marginally off topioc, I checked out car insurance on a comparison website a couple of weeks ago. The companies offering in-car monitoring devices had the highest premiums.
