Top 5 Favorite Wearables For The Summer

Are you looking for a wearable device to get more active this summer, but don’t know how to choose the right one? To make your decision easier, WT| Wearable Technologies would like to reveal our top 5 favorite wearables this summer.

It’s awesome to lay out and tan your body during summer time. However, are you aware that unprotected time in the sun causes bad UV effects to our skin? More than 13 million people worldwide are diagnosed with skin cancer each year. To help resolve this Soltrackr created 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. Moreover, it can also measure your stress level using your heart rate variability along with resting heart rate, and blood oxygen level.

My UV Patch
Skin caner is to be a major health issue; especially during summer time if your are not protected. Since the beginning of 2016, L’Oreal, MC10 and La Roche-Posay unveiled My UV Patch, the first-ever stretchable skin sensor to monitor UV exposure and help consumers educate themselves about sun protection. The patch is a transparent adhesive that adheres directly to any area of skin that consumers want to monitor. The patch contains photosensitive dyes that factor in the baseline skin tone and change colors when exposed to UV rays to indicate varying levels of sun exposure. Consumers are able to take a photo of the patch and upload it to My UV Patch app, which analyses the varying photosensitive dye squares to determine the amount of UV exposure the wearer has received.

Misfit Ray
It is of great necessity to get in shape to be ready for a hot summer. We would like to recommend you Misfit Ray – one of the most stylish and affordable wearables which is getting a makeover for summer. A new, polish, stainless version will be available in either gold or silver finish. These will come equipped with either a sports band in black or white, or a leather band in black, cream or white. Besides, it is still a very good tracker. It can monitor your sleep quality, and track your steps, distance travelled plus calories burned.

Nixon- The Mission
Summertime is when the temperatures rise and the days get longer. Therefore, you’ll undoubtedly be making it out to the beach, or at least spending some time near water, to keep cool and have fun despite the heat. Nixon the Mission – the highest waterproof rating of any smartwatch on the market deserves to be one of our favourite this summer. The Mission is built smart and tough. As a result, you can bring it to anywhere: in the water, on the hill, off the road and beyond. The Mission is equipped with a preloaded app and streamlines real-time surf and snow shred alert to your wrists. The Mission is an ideal watch for surf as it is powered by Android Wear and working hand in hand with Surfline.

GoPro Hero4
The last product among our top 5 favourite wearables this summer is GoPro Hero4– an action camera. Whether you go snowboarding down the mountain or under the water, it can capture the most natural memories when they matter most. GoPro Hero4 has two editions : Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver. Hero4 Black is the most advanced model with a maximum resolution of 4K at a rate of 30fps. Or you can choose Hero4 Silver which doesn’t offer quite the same level of video quality (1080p at 60fps). However Hero4 Silver is the first GoPro to offer an integrated LCD Screen.

Have fun and enjoy your summer time !
