As someone who is very fair skin, I’m concerned anytime I see partly sunny skies—especially in Arizona. I’m hearing about way too many skin cancer cases so I bought the Sunmate and was surprised how accurate it worked and also how small it is. It’s really a clever device and I use it when I’m heading outdoors to walk my dogs, go to the park and especially on sunny days. I keep it in my bag with a tube of sunscreen and am really conscientious about using it. Thanks Purely!

Our family love to go out for beach, pool, park and other outdoor activities like biking, running, skating and playing. My son loves to play outside during the day with his friends for his summer vacation. I have to check outside whether the sun is moderate hot or very hot before sending him out. Now, I had given the opportunity to review new product, “SunMate“. I taught my son how to use it. Using the SunMate UV monitor, he learns to read how strong the sun is and he decides to play in the sun. SunMate UV Monitor helps us to avoid too much exposure to the sun whenever we want to go out. We can protect our skin and play safe in the sun. The sun rays is good for health but, too much exposure to it is harmful to the skin that causes sun tan, sun burn and other skin diseases. A small device that comes in handy can be put in your pocket or strolley or small bag. Simply press the white button at the top of the monitor and the indicator light will show you between 1 and 5 (as shown in the chart below) upon the intensity of the UV light to which you are being exposed. -- Rajee
"I tested in the middle of the backyard where the kids were playing so I knew exactly what they were being exposed to. Immediately the lights showed a level of 4 and I heard a loud beep. When levels are high, the SunMate emits a beeping sound to warn you! No way you can miss it! I am thrilled to have this handy tool with me from now on! Now I can feel even more prepared to keep my family safe from the harmful UV rays, taking the proper precautions to protect our sensitive skin and hopefully prevent lasting effects on our bodies."

"I have to admit that the SunMate is super easy to use and very accurate. There is a tiny sensor on top which should be pointed up toward the Sun. Next, simply push the button on top and the SunMate will automatically register the Sun's UV intensity. I tried using it first in my kitchen and the SunMate registered a 1. I took it outside and used it in the shade and the SunMate registered a 2. Finally, I stood in the direct sunlight and pushed the button again. This time, the SunMate registered a 3 and even sounded an audible alarm. This reading was accurate for the National Weather Service said that my area had a UV 6 rating today."

"Momma Told Me: That tan won't be sexy in 40 years. My mother has a way of putting things quite bluntly, though with concern, that can seem a bit abrasive. To this day I can't sport even the mildest of color or pigment, without the latest medical research on UV dangers. Of course, I learned a long time ago to take Momma's words seriously, and I respect those smiling rays of sunshine for their unsuspecting dangers. Until just a few years back I'd never heard of a UV Index, let alone know how to pull one up for any given day. Now I consider it perhaps more important than the traditional forecast. So, when I learned there was a simple, compact, and affordable device designed solely to measure the surrounding UV output I knew I had to look into it. Over the summer I continued use on family trips, at the beach, while gardening …"
