Wearable technology is on the increase with everything from watches to augmented reality devices being at the forefront of market now however what seems to have taken a long time to take off is device based technology such as the Wello which has been announced today.
There are many wearables out there that do almost the same as what the Wello offers however there are very few on device pieces of tech that match up to what this one offers.
Sadly, the company behind the Wello decided that showing the device on an Android device was a no go so we have little on the side of images to show you however if you don’t mind seeing an iPhone then simply head over to their site for more info and to pre-order one for the not so cheap price of £120.

Azoi, a technology company dedicated to helping people improve their lives, today announced Wello – an innovative health monitoring device uniquely embedded within a mobile phone case.
With just a few powerful sensors, Wello fits onto a smartphone and measures a number of key vitals including blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions and more, with a high level of accuracy.
By simply holding it for a few moments, hidden sensors take measurements and pass on gathered information to the Wello app. Not only does it bring instantaneous results and data on your key vitals, over time it is possible to identify patterns that can help make more informed lifestyle choices.
Wello can also connect with other health and fitness devices such as pedometers to help identify how different behaviours can affect bodily state. Furthermore, it provides safe and secure remote access – so it can be used to track the key vitals of family members too.
Statistics about global health problems and the incidence of preventable diseases are all too familiar. According to the World Health Organization, heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide and hypertension afflicts nearly a billion people. With simple, regular monitoring of health data, people are better equipped to identify potential issues and seek advice before they become serious illnesses.
Wello is available for pre-order in the UK and across the EU. It will ship in summer 2014 at a price of £120 or €145. It will also be available for pre-order Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and the United States. In the US it will retail for $199 and will ship in fall 2014 pending FDA approval. Through Azoi’s referral program, every purchaser gets a unique URL to share and receives a $10 credit if it is used with an order.
