Of course the French would invent a bracelet that measures your exposure to the sun so that you can get guidance on how to prevent premature skin aging.

This bracelet comes with an app for your smartphone or tablet in order to give you personalized sun protection advice based on your skin type and habits.
During the first use, the app takes you through a series of questions in order to determine your skin type.
Then, based on the UV sensors in the bracelet and current meteorological information, the app tells you if you need to protect yourself and with what level of SPF cream. It will even send reminders to wear a hat or sunglasses before leaving the house that day.
As mad as they are about skincare, French women don’t really like to wear sunscreen. So maybe this gadget will finally get them into that habit.
In terms of design, I thought that the rather imposing jewel looks a little gaudy, non?
But after seeing a photo of a real person wearing it IRL, I changed my mind.

I would definitely wear this.
Yo, Netatmo! If you’re still looking for test subjects, I’m your hollaback girl.
