Wello iPhone case is enough to keep a track of your vital signs

Last year it was Scanadu with its Scout that caught the attention of many with its user friendly tricorder-style health monitor. A new iPhone case has arrived with a similar concept and this one claims that monitoring your vital signs will be made easier. This new case, called Wello, works on the basis of the built in sensors which help to monitor and in the event give a clear picture of your overall health. And the best part is that you will not have to do anything for iut; just holding the case in a certian position is going to give you the results. With the help of this tech savvy casing, you can know your heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and blood oxygen levels and even the ECG readings. Surprisingly, a single attachement with this case will also measure your lung performance after you blow into it.

A prototype has already been made and tried out and is extremely light and thinner than the usual Speck case on one of our iPhones. After all, Wello aims to deliver speed as well as portability. You also don't have to worry about the placement of your hands; you will get the readings with your hands placed in a comfortable position. When the prototype was tried out, the health tracker was able to return the vital signs as well as a fancy ECG graph of the heart in just a few seconds. It can be paired with the Wi-Fi as well right out of the box and you can attach it to your fitness tracker. We can also be expecting more additional add ons to make their way on this device. In the US as well as Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom, the Wello case is available for pre orders today. And there is even an exciting promotional offer; Early buyers can earn $10 for each person they get to pre-order.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
