Wearable Tech for Safer Fun in the Sun

According to the World Health Organization, one in every three cancers diagnosed worldwide is a skin cancer. It’s no wonder that the creators of SunFriend were winners of the Intel Make it Wearble contest SunFriend-UV-Monitoring-Wristbands1with their UVA/UVB Wearable Tech idea.

 SunFriend  is a new waterproof, wearable device that will track the time you’ve spent in the sun and can be customized to your skin tone, from the fairest of pale to darkest of skin color.

SunFriend will light up when it’s time to reapply sunscreen, throw on a cover up or get in the shade. Designed to help increase consumers’ awareness of sun safety and help them keep track of exposure while having fun in the sun.
