BLE AI-driven Smartwatch Detecting Potential Sun Damage #WearableWednesday
This sizable wrist watch will help you stay safe in the sun. Get realtime UV and weather readings wherever you go, its almost a mobile weather station. From Kutluhan Aktar on Hackster.io:
Although many of us enjoy a sunny day in our leisure time, the glaring sun can affect our health detrimentally, especially for the elderly, children, and people with light skin. Excess sun exposure can cause minor health conditions such as sunburn, dehydration, hyponatremia, heatstroke, etc. In more severe cases, excess sun exposure can engender photoaging, DNA damage, skin cancer, immunosuppression, and eye damage, such as cataracts. Therefore, it is crucial to detect sun damage risk levels so as to get prescient warnings regarding potential health risks to mitigate the brunt of inadvertent excess sun exposure.
