The Helios Smart Ring is a new device that is outfitted with a UV sensor that allows wearers to track the amount of vitamin D they are getting in order to help achieve desired intake levels.

Being that vitamin D levels can be maintained by simply getting more sun exposure, it would seem as though low levels wouldn't be an issue. However, an increase in our time indoors and an increasing sedentary lifestyle has likely helped to decrease the amount of vitamin D many are getting.

The Helios Smart Ring works by utilizing the UV sensor within the device to let you know when you've had enough sun exposure. The device can let you know when to take cover in order to avoid a sunburn and to keep your health at optimal levels.
