Innovation company Netatmo has released a bracelet that measures sun exposure.

The wearable, named JUNE features a jewel sensor and an app designed to advise people how to protect their skin on a daily basis from the effects of the sun.

"Sun exposure can cause sunburn and lead to premature skin ageing, even on overcast days. JUNE tracks UV intensity in real-time and the total sun exposure absorbed by the user's skin throughout the day." Netemo said in a statement.

Depending on the user's skin type, the app calculates the suggested maximum daily exposure and users can monitor their sun dose measured in percentage throughout the day. The app will then notify the user of when to protect their skin to avoid sun damage.

The App also features a summary of time spent in the sun, allowing the user to see when the UV rays impact on the skin was most intense during the day.

The bracelet observes the habits of the user and the app determines the recommended sun protection for their skin type whether it be applying SPF, putting on a hat, wearing sun glasses or seeking out shade.

JUNE can be worn as a bracelet or as a brooch and is available in three colors:  gold, platinum and gunmetal.
