We all know that too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are harmful to our skin, and yet that doesn’t keep us from having a whale of a time at the beach from time to time. What if there are smart swimwear that detects and measures our exposure to UV rays accurately and in real-time?

Smart Swimwear That Monitors Your UV Exposure

Enter the smart swimwear, a UV-detecting swimwear that basically monitors your exposure to the sun and is programmed to send out push notifications via your mobile device if it detects the risk of overexposure to the harmful UV rays. A small waterproof sensor is embedded within the smart swimwear that measures UV rays, so you can spend quality time outdoors with peace of mind – your smart swimwear will alert you to reapply your sunblock lotion or when you should move indoors when it’s time to do so.

Tracking Your UV Exposure in Real Time

Some of these sensors have the capability to send data to a connected mobile app to inform users how much UV exposure they had throughout the day. The data gathered by the sensor is then transmitted to the mobile app where it is configured based on the user’s skin profile and turned into a format that is easily understandable by the user.

Customised Skin Profile For Better Protection

Some companies go the extra mile by making a customised profile based on the customer’s skin type, and what this means is that if you have a skin type that’s prone to sunburns, then you’ll receive an alert earlier than someone who is less prone to sunburns.

Finally, based on the same concept to detect users’ UV exposure, researchers at Macquarie University have integrated an advanced nanosensor into a wearable device to measure the skin’s exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays in real-time.
