Summer Trends in Wearable Tech

Jul 27, 2016

The concept of wearable tech has evolved and means different things to different people. If you’re a biker, you want a piece of technology that helps you train better, harder, and smarter.  If you are a city stroller, your ideal piece of wearable tech is probably sleek and blends in with your personal style. Below you’ll find some of the latest trends in wearable tech, from cutting edge science to trackers that wear like jewelry.


Summer is a great time to get outside and enjoy time in the sun with family and friends. But if you or someone you know is at risk for skin cancer –  especially life-threatening melanoma – time in the sun can make you anxious. Along with following the recommended guidelines for applying sunscreen, these new advancements in wearable tech can help put your mind at ease.

Soltrackr – A small device which can measure the sun’s UV rays to balance how much Vitamin D you make while estimating the time before you get burned – pretty cool, huh? According to Wearable Technologies, the Soltrackr is one of this summer’s hottest wearable must-haves. The device also measures your stress level using your heart rate variability along with resting heart rate, and blood oxygen level. If you or someone you know is at risk for skin cancer – especially melanoma – this device is worth checking out.

My UV Patch – L’Oreal, MC10 and La Roche-Posay unveiled My UV Patch, which is the first stretchable skin sensor to monitor UV exposure and a breakthrough in skin cancer research. The unique UV patch design adheres safely to the skin and is sensitive enough to monitor exposure to harmful UV rays – that can indicate threatening levels of sun exposure and change color when exposed to harmful UV ray. To receive a free trial of the product this month, L’Oreal is giving away UV patches. In addition to the UV Patch, you can find a full line of skincare products from sunscreen and anti-aging to acne protocols from the experts at La Roche-Posay.
