Wello: An iPhone case that can read your blood pressure


Over the past few months we’ve seen so many different health and fitness trackers, ones that strap to your wrist, once that strap to your bicep, ones that slot into clothing, ones that… You get the idea. But Wello is the first one that actually disguises itself as an iPhone case.

Developed by Azoi, Wello is packed with a range of powerful sensors that measure blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions and much more – making it one of the most comprehensive options to hit the health and fitness tech market.

Wello looks just like an iPhone case, and by holding it for a few moments, the sensors can gather information and send it on to the Wello app. It gathers these readings straight away, providing the user with realtime readings, but it also identifies patterns too, advising them about the best ways to adapt their lifestyle habits.

The device/case/tracker will also be able to sync up with other health and fitness devices in the future, like pedometers and those that serve up different kinds of readings.

“Over the last two years, we have focused our efforts on coming up with a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use tool to help people monitor their health and facilitate better lifestyle choices,” said Hamish Patel, founder and CEO at Azoi.

“We are proud to introduce Wello – a not so small engineering feat in microelectronics, nanosensors, imaging, data analytics and design. By putting health monitoring technology into a highly convenient and accessible mobile phone case, we hope to be able to make a real difference.”

Wello is available for pre-order in the UK today and will ship in summer 2014 at £120.
