“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.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
