And here I thought the slap bracelet was out of style. UVeBand (pronounced “yoo-vee-band”) has brought it back, this time with beach-going functionality. When you’re out soaking up the sun, this waterproof, solar-powered slap bracelet detects the accumulation of ultraviolet rays to tell you when to reapply sunscreen.
The system works as such: apply at least 15 SPF sunscreen, then snap on the UVeBand to turn it on. After absorbing UV for a time, the band will vibrate to let you know when you should reapply sunscreen. Take it off and the device resets and turns itself off after twenty minutes. Simple!
