From Sun Protection Jewelry to Touchless Sunblock Booths

When the weather is warm, it's much easier to be excited about being outdoors than diligent about skin protection—fortunately, in the digital age there are tons of smart wristbands, sunscreen bottles, booths and apps to aid as a reminder to slather on the sunscreen.

On top of serving as a smart UV-monitoring device, many bracelets, rings and other jewelry pieces like the Microsoft Band take cues from fitness bands and have the ability to track a wearer's steps, distance and calories.

Since applying sunscreen is just one important part of a healthy skincare routine, Way is a handheld device and app that takes a more holistic approach. By tracking UV index and humidity sensors, Way is able to suggest the use of specific products based upon how a certain condition is likely affecting the skin.
