Health and fitness features are at the forefront of mobile devices today, as seen on the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S5 handset. However, Azoi Inc has taken the idea to a whole new level with its new Wello case for the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5s. This case comes with several functions allowing users to check various aspects of their health such as heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure, ECG, blood oxygen level, respiration and many other functions.
The case comes with two slots on the back which is where all the data is recorded, so users are required to place their fingers on top of these slots to get an accurate reading. Naturally, there is an app which stores all the data to give you an idea of how much your health has changed on a day-to-day or a monthly basis. Multiple user data can be recorded within the app, so this case can be used by the entire family.
Wello connects to your device via Bluetooth 4.0 LE and is compatible with other Wi-Fi dependent fitness monitors as well, so you can have all your data in one place conveniently. The makers claim that the case will have a battery life of over two months, which is excellent for a health monitor.
While the case itself is large, the actual component that does all the recording and monitoring is supposedly as big as a business card. This means that third party iPhone or Android case manufacturers can possibly bring their own cases with support for this module.
The case is launching in 35 countries with pre-orders going live in the U.S., UK, Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore and other nations of the EU. Shipping is slated to commence by Fall 2014. Priced at $199, the Wello won’t go easy on your wallets, but it’s well worth it considering what it brings to the table. The makers are also offering a $10 discount for every referral, which will ensure that the word spreads pretty quickly. For a limited period, Azoi Inc is offering a lung-testing attachment for free with the Wello case.
The case has been developed by the CEO Hamish Patel along with his team for over two years with an aim to bring this to a wide range of countries, especially where access to healthcare is limited.
