SunFriend UV Wristband

With the un-offical end of summer coming up this weekend, you may think mentioning this gadget is “too little too late”, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. We are exposed to UV rays every day of the year – so this is a perfect reminder that even though it may not be beach weather, you still need to protect yourself against sun exposure.

According to the SCF, up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds. This is the reason people often end up with serious sunburns on overcast days if they’ve spent time outside with no sun protection. Even in the winter months, you need to beware: Snow can reflect up to 80 percent of UV rays, increasing exposure.

Inspired by the powerful UV sensors developed at NASA, the small device is worn on your wrist and measures the sun’s intensity whilst monitoring your total daily sun exposure. The device’s biggest selling point is that it doesn’t only monitor UV exposure from direct sunlight, but also from reflected surfaces, indoor areas, and places in the shade. This UV monitor comes in different colors and can be purchased on sunfriend.com.

Connected Cycle Smart Pedal
