Despite all the warnings about UV rays and skin cancer, there are still those who insist on either laying themselves out to bake in the sun, or who simply neglect to use any kind of sunblock when out and about doing normal activities. Me, I don’t get it, but then I’ve always had such naturally pale skin that if I’m in direct sunlight for more than a few minutes without the sunblock equivalent of a suit of armor, it immediately results in lobsterlike colouring. This is a neat little gadget that can benefit everyone.

This UV monitor evaluates the levels of UV rays in your particular area, then calculates the maximum safe exposure time to sunlight. What’s neat is it also factors in the SPF of your sunblock as well as your skin type to arrive at that number. It also updates the current temperature and time, so you’re never left guessing. The monitor is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (measurements are 8 cm long x 4.5 cm wide x 2 cm deep [3.2 x 1.7 x 0.9 inches]), so there are no worries about having to lug around a gadget the size of a breadbox. It also features a strap, allowing you to wear it on your wrist or attach it to your bag.

It runs on just one CR2032 battery, and operates in several languages for universal accessibility. In addition to the current temperature and time, its display shows an exposure timer, enabling you to always be aware of when it’s still OK to soak up the rays and when you should go take a break in the shade. You can order one for $40.13 / 29,95€ / £25.46, or for slightly less than that if you shop around.
