The Finnish technology giant has announced that it is in the process of selling its digital health business back to one of the people it bought it from just two years ago. In 2016 Nokia bought French health device maker Withings for $191 million. The following year, Nokia rolled several of Withings’s products into its new “Digital Health” business.

Nokia expects the deal to close later this year. It has not announced how much Carreel will be paying for its digital health assets.
