L’Oreal introduced a new wearable UV sensor today that you can stick on your nail. It’s truly just a sensor; it doesn’t pair with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to your phone. Instead, it’s NFC-enabled so you can scan it with your phone to retrieve the UV data it’s collected. It should work on both Android and iOS.
The UV Sense will determine long you’ve been outside, and once synced with your app, provides a score that says whether you’re spending too much time in the sun. The amount of sun everyone can handle varies, L’Oreal tells me, so it’ll ask you some initial questions about your skin tone to set a baseline. Of course, the app also recommends products based on your skin score. It’ll suggest its own products along with more general advice. The availability and pricing aspects of this UV sensor remains a mystery. Hope will it be come soon!
