The UV-888 is a personal sun monitor with a precision sensor to measure harmful rays, the rays that cause premature aging, sunburn, skin cancer and cataracts.
UV-888 UV Monitor continuously measures the amount of Ultraviolet you are receiving from the sun even on cloudy days and in water. UV-888 is a waterproof, eye catching watch as well as a UV radiation detector that comes with cord, clip and skin analyzer.
The Personal UV Monitor displays the UV-index to maximize safe tanning time and recommends the proper sun block or tanning lotion by SPF type.
- Monitors current UV index and temperature
- Exposure timer uses UV, SPF, and skin type to calculate recommended exposure time
- Exposure time automatically updates with changes in UV intensity
- Countdown timer and digital clock
It is interesting how dramatically the intensity of the Sun's UV rays change during the day; The UV index in the morning and late afternoon is around 1 to 3 which is an ideal time to tan. After 10 O'clock it rapidly increases and can peak, even with clouds to a UV index of 8 or 10. The UV-888 tells you the UV index at any time of day, whenever you are in the sun- swimming, hiking, skiing, or sun bathing. It help you choose the right SPF sun factor of your sun lotion, tells you the maximum safe time in the sun for the SPF of the lotion you are wearing.
The UV-888 takes into account the intensity of UV rays, your skin type, the sun protective factor (SPF) of your sun blocking lotion, the time of day and the amount of sun you have already had to calculate how much time you can safely stay in the sun.
Being out in the sun is something that we all enjoy. On our vacation we all like to get a fantastic suntan and all too often we forget about the harmful effects of the sun until it's too late. UV-888 is designed to assist you in obtaining a safe suntan without agony and pains of the sunburn or over exposure to UV rays.
"The more sun you get, the higher your risk of skin cancer", U.S. researchers said in a report they claim is the first to show an individual's cumulative risk of melanoma. Many studies have linked sun exposure with skin cancer, but the team at the National Cancer Institute said their research was the first to show the intensity of sunlight a person receives over a lifetime is directly related to melanoma risk.
