Stella Wearables, Inc. is an IoT startup addressing what is probably one of the most overlooked health issues in America.

Incubated at EvoNexus in San Diego, CA. 

The Team


CEO & Founder - Nicolas Gonzalez In 2015, I decided to develop a product that would notify people when they are about to be overexposed to UV rays. Why did I do this? After my mother was diagnosed with skin cancer, I started looking into this subject more in depth and found that over 90% of skin cancer cases are due to overexposure to UV rays. I also found that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and is the easiest to prevent. I invite you to look into our company and experience this new product for yourself.
