Electronics Company Debuts Bracelet That Measures Sun Exposure

Netatmo, a consumer electronics company, recently unveiled a smart bracelet that makes the Samsung smartwatch look like clunky piece of space debris.

The June bracelet, which made its debut at the 2014 International CES show in Las Vegas on Jan. 5, tracks UV intensity in real time and the total sun exposure absorbed by the user’s skin throughout the day.  

As opposed to the Samsung smartwatch, the June bracelet has a pretty sleek and understated design.

Depending on the woman’s skin type, the app connected to the bracelet calculates the suggested maximum daily exposure and can notify the user when to protect her skin. The app also features a summary of time spent in the sun, allowing the user to see when the UV rays’ impact on the skin was most intense during the day.

The bracelet, which can also be worn as a brooch, was designed by French jewelry designer Camille Toupet and is available in gold, platinum, and gunmetal. It will be available in the second quarter of 2014 in select fashion, beauty, and consumer electronics stores and will retail at $99.

I think we can all agree this is much cooler than the watch that measures how much time you have left on Earth.
