The Wello health tracker doubles as an iPhone case, making it the first device to measure and record your vitals wherever you are. Put your fingers on the embedded sensors and get key readings — blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature and electrocardiography — with medical-grade accuracy. There’s even a spirometer attachment (currently included) that measures lung capacity. Wello syncs the data to the accompanying app on your phone via Bluetooth and connects to other fitness trackers such as Fitbit devices, so you can see all your data in one place. Available for iPhone 4s/5/5s and compatible with Android devices as a stand-alone unit. Pre-order while FDA approval is pending; expected to ship this fall. $199.

The optional Cloud Recording service saves up to 30 days (720 hours) of continuous video, so you can review footage on your device and share clips with family and friends. Dropcam features a 130-degree field of view, zoom capability, two-way talk and night vision. $199.
