Worried about what the sun’s harmful rays are doing to your skin? With June, a new smart bracelet from Netatmo that’s aimed at women, you can find out exactly how much exposure your skin is getting, then decide what kind of sunscreen you need to stay safe.
June doesn’t really look any different to a regular bracelet; it has a narrow leather strap and a big shiny jewel that sits on top of your wrist. But that big jewel has built-in sensors that sync with your iOS device and provide you with all kinds of information about sun exposure and how to take care of your skin.
It monitors US intensity and tracks your daily habits, then provides you with advice on how to keep your skin safe — including what sunscreen you should use to block out harmful rays depending on the intensity of the sun. It can calculate the maximum sun exposure for your skin type, then tell you how much impact the sun has had on your skin throughout the day.
It’ll even send you an alert if you’ve had too much exposure to the sun.
“Women are conscious of the need to use sun protection on vacation and sunny days, but there is a lack of awareness to protect oneself in everyday life,” a Netatmo spokesperson told Mashable. “The sun rays can be strong and cause sun damage even on overcast days.”
“This product is meant to help women know when and how to protect their skin every day from sun damage.”
June was designed by French jewelry designer Camille Toupet, and it’s available in gold, platinum, and gunmetal. It’ll cost $99 when it goes on sale during the second half of 2014.
