Bizarre Beach Gadget: Personal UV Monitor

June 16, 2008 by Rebekah
shefinds | Style

What: A little 3” x 2” x 2” rectangle of electronic goodness that tells you the time, temperature, and UV intensity. It even recommends the amount of time you should be out in the sun, based on the UV index, your skin type, and what SPF you’re wearing.

Why: Because you’re my neurotic mother. I am picturing having spent family vacations being shooed into the lobby until some cloud cover breezed by. Thank god she didn’t know this existed (until now, hi Mom).

We already know UV rays are dangerous in large amounts. We already wear sunscreen daily. And we already feel a little bad every time we sit in the sun for an entire day. So we’d rather opt for slathering on that SPF generously and often, or avoiding the situation altogether with some self-tanner.

Get Yours: If you’re still in the ignorance-is-not-bliss camp, get your Personal UV Monitor ($29.95) at OregonScientific.com.
