Azoi, a Bay-Area based technology entity, has just announced Wello, an iOS case that doubles as a health tracker.

The hardware is able to glean information from users by sensors that begin to collect data when the held as one would hold a smartphone while taking a picture. It tests for and measures a wide degree of information: blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions, and ECG function. It combines with the free Wello app to record and analyze findings.

“Over the last two years, we have focused our efforts on coming up with a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use tool to help you monitor 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, 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 for $199.
