“Smart” jewelry is one of the Next Big Things in consumer technology, while sun protection is everyone’s concern. Why not bring the two together? Netatmo does just that with JUNE, the first bracelet that measures your sun exposure and provides sun protection advice. JUNE tracks UV intensity in real time and the total sun absorbed by your skin throughout the day, while its iPhone app calculates the suggested maximum daily exposure and notifies you when to slather on the sun block, which SPF to use and when to take cover. Created by French jewelry designer Camille Toupet to resemble a diamond with glimmering facets, JUNE comes in gold, platinum or gunmetal. $99.

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.
