Our Story

Welltory is the go-to health app that lets you read your body, track health, and sync gadgets.
If healthcare gets you from sick to normal, we work to help people get from being merely “ok” to thriving. To supreme wellness.
The unique technology allows users to measure key performance parameters for body & mind:
  • Productivity
  • Energy
  • Stress
  • Resilience

The novel feature introduced in the latest, 3rd generation of our app allows you to do it just by wearing an Apple Watch — a tech know-how that today no other product can offer. Welltory was launched in 2016 with the belief that technology and science can help millions improve their lifestyle, bring habits under control, and live healthier. A team of engineers and researchers, the company was founded by Jane Smorodnikova and Pavel Pravdin, who both have an extensive background in enterprise software and consumer apps.
It was clear there is a growing number of apps and gadgets aimed to help us improve lifestyle. The data they provide is snowballing. Yet for the user the number of things to track is overwhelming. As human-generated data grows 10 times faster than business data, it’s a bit of a hassle. Fitness trackers give you walking distance, steps, and burned calories but fall short on providing sensible general feedback.
As we don’t have the time or desire to all become health experts, Welltory takes the fragmented data and helps get it under control.
Initially, we trained a team of health analysts to provide personalized health guidance to users via chat based on their data — just like experts who advise top athletes and presidents. This telehealth approach had proven to be well-received and loved by customers, but unscalable.
A bold new chapter for our company was in 2017 when we developed a technology of measuring heart rate variability, or HRV, with a phone camera. It is done by applying a finger for 2 minutes. 4 simple gauges provide the result: Stress, Resilience, Energy, and Productivity. And a couple of dozen scientific HRV parameters if they wish to go into detail. This tech redefined our product.
We were featured by TechCrunch and over the next two years, Welltory amassed 1.5 million app users with over 15 million measurements taken, as well as the aggregate data from the apps & trackers they connected. All that data is combined with HRV measurements taken with our app. This combined dataset is analyzed by algorithms that spot correlations and trends in big data to produce a user-friendly overview with insights, key metrics, and actionable advice. Users sync fitness, productivity, and sleep trackers, blood pressure, and heart rate monitors. Overall, 120 sources are supported and growing. The collection and studying of this unique dataset provided a perfect foundation for rebuilding the app from the ground-up.
Our scientists and engineers have found a clever way to extract HRV data from Apple Watch and its built-in capabilities.
The culmination of an extensive development program, our 3rd gen product launched in May 2020 is a modular & flexible data analytics platform. We created many custom data analysis models for various parameters, including those that analyze blood pressure, detect heart rate irregularities, and seek correlations between sleep and weight.
The best product we’ve ever created, we believe that its cutting edge technology, simplicity of use, and beautiful design will win the hearts of millions and help them become healthier and happier.
