Digital Trends did a write up on this really cute and functional bracelet.
Wandering the show floor at CES this year revealed a wealth of new smart wristbands, almost all of which tracked movement, or performed some other fitness-related activity. On our travels we stumbled upon the Netatmo June, which differed from most wearable gadgets in two distinct ways. First, it can be either strapped to your wrist or worn as a brooch, and second, it’s aimed solely at women.
The idea is to minimize the chance of getting burned, which in turn leads to better skin. The June doesn’t have a screen, and all important information is relayed through an app for the iPhone. A percentage meter shows the amount of sun exposure you’ve had during the day, while a UV index figure helps the June wearer know what they should equip themselves with sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses or a combination of all three. A log ensures you spend the correct amount of time in the sun, and prompts you to take a break.
