La Roche-Posay’s My Skin Track UV is the first battery-free wearable electronic to measure UV exposure. Developed by L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator, the precision sensor measures individual UV levels and offers a companion app to tracks exposure to pollution, pollen, and humidity. My Skin Track UV measures both UVA and UVB rays, and provides instant status updates while storing up to three months of data. The discreet wearable sensor is 12mm wide and 6mm high, waterproof, and has a sturdy wire clip that can conveniently attach to clothing or accessories. Battery-free, the device is activated by the sun and powered by the user’s smartphone using near-field communication.
“Our research has long indicated the need for better consumer understanding of personal UV exposure,” said Guive Balooch, Global Vice President and Head of L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator. “We created this battery-free sensor to seamlessly integrate into the lives, and daily routines, of those using it. We hope the launch of this problem-solving technology makes it easier for people to make smart, sun-safe choices.”
