Azoi today announced Wello, an innovative health monitoring device embedded within an iPhone 5/5s case. Sensors on the case measure your vitals when you hold your fingers on them for a few seconds. The photo above shows where the sensors are located on the back of the case. Key measurements include blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions and more. Not only do you get instantaneous results and key data about your health, over time you’ll see patterns that hopefully will help you take better care of yourself.
Wello also connects with other health and fitness devices such as pedometers and sleep trackers to help identify how different behaviors can affect one’s bodily state. Furthermore, the company says Wello provides safe and secure remote access – so it can be used to track the key vitals of family members too.
Hamish Patel, founder and CEO at Azoi said, “We are proud to introduce Wello – a not so small engineering feat in microelectronics, nanosensors, imaging, data analytics and design, that we hope will make a big difference in helping the world become a healthier place. We have effectively put health monitoring equipment, typically in large form factors, into a highly convenient and accessible mobile phone case.”

Wello is available for pre-order at $199 in the United States as well as Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and across the European Union. U.S shipments expected in fall 2014 pending FDA approval. A standalone unit is also available for Android users of 4.3 & above smartphones with Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy.
