A new concept watch from the Tokyoflash Design Studio.
It’s summer time and it’s hotting up outside, but be careful, UV levels are increasing and it’s important to protect yourself against excessive exposure to UV light which can cause sunburn, eye damage and skin cancer.
This concept watch design features a sensor which measures the UV index when outside so that you know when you should take care and protect yourself.
The UV Index, used by the World Health Organisation measures the level of UV radiation from zero to eleven. The higher the UV level, the greater the potential for damage to the skin and eyes, and the less time it takes for harm to occur. Depending on the UV level and your skin type, there are different recommendations for protection.
For example, at UV level 8.2 there would be a very high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure and adults with pale to lightly tan skin should wear SPF 30+ sunscreen, a shirt, sunglasses, and a hat.
This concept watch design features an “always on” LCD display with a colored LED backlight. It is also touch sensitive so the functions can be operated by touching the screen. Touch to see the time or date, touch to illuminate the screen and touch to get a UV Index reading.
The time is displayed with hours in the centre and minutes around the outside in the same position as minutes on a clock face. The date is shown in a similar way. There is also an alarm mode, to ensure you don’t stay out in the sun too long.
