Overexposure to UV rays is a top health safety concern, and L’Oréal’s UV Sense addresses the issue in a subtle and fashionable way. L’Oréal exhibited this wearable at CES 2018 and is ready to launch its product in late 2018.

UV Sense is a small, battery-free electronic sensor that can measure the UV exposure of its environment. The circular, colorful wearable sticks right onto the top of your nail, resembling nail art or polish. It is powered by your smartphone, which is where UV Sense will tell its user how much UV exposure is present that day.  The best part is that consumers will have access to real-time sun safety information right at their fingertips through an app on their smartphone.
