Netatmo JUNE

“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.
