    Useless for now

    • Written by Svitozar R from Calgary

    Great idea but poorly developed. I bought it to be able to see “big” picture of how much UV radiation am I receiving during the day. It shows me my daily percentage but it does NOt import this data to Health app, but what it does it imports daily UV index from the app. Why do i need sensor to import UV index that is taken from weather server? Developers please, change it! Make it to import my actual UV exposure into Health app! Thanks.

    Gimmick?

    • Written by Duncan W

    I've only had the sensor a few days, it never scans at the first attempt; like the Postman it only knocks twice ! and it's readings vary in an unexpected way: I understan under heavy cloud there is a likelyhood that there will be no UV, but under whispy clouds ?. It also gives readings in percentages, one cloudless day 160% (I didn't know this was possible, and can only assume it's bad) and the next with a few clouds as mentioned previously 23% ?. It would be helpful if it gave more information regarding these readings. It would seem that the device is aimed a much younger more beauty conscious demographic than a 50+ year old man who has concerns regarding skin Cancer (due to a mis-spent youth), who would rather not have more lumps cut out of his back, so was hoping this device would assist in decision making - but alas not. One of the functions of this device is just to sell more product which I have come to the conclusion is the main aim of La Roche-Posay in producing this sensor. ...' Tis a pity

    I wished I can say good things about this product. But it was small and lost within 5 hours of use.

    Meh

    • Written by Sandra S from Austin

    Does not do live monitoring of UV usage. Has the wearable chip that basically will map your activity, but does not do it live, it has to be scanned back into phone, so no tracking live. Basically it takes that info or what you tell it about when you were outside and measures the UV based on the weather / uv reports. So.. you can do all that without the app :( It will give you some skin tips, but I suspect you could also do those on your own. It should have a better description of the product as there is no "sensor"reading UV.

    No real-time tracking, no exposure warning, lots of ads

    • Written by Armin K from Cupertino

    The sensor may be tracking UV exposure, but your phone with the companion app does not. Only when you scan the sensor (slow and cumbersome) does the app get an update of accumulated exposure. This takes some practice and a minute or two of concentration, not practical to do frequently while out for a run or ride.
    In practice this means there is no warning when you reach UV exposure limit. No reminder to seek shade. Only when you scan the sensor at the end of the day, can you check if that painful sensation on your skin may be sunburn.
    Most of the app is just another weather app. You can get all that without paying for hardware.
    Oh, and even though you pay for this product, it still spams the user with a constant stream of ads.

    Doesn't stay on

    I lost the device the first day because it doesn't clip securely to clothing. :(

    My Skin Track

    • Written by James D from WALNUT CREEK

    I received as a gift and it is being returned. In my 30 years of dealing with Apple sold items, this is unquestionably a product that Apple should reconsider selling. First, the sensor attachment to the body is at best fragile; second the NFC is erratic or better put if commerce used it would be tossed; third a trial test gave aanswer incompatible with the strength of the sun and duration; finally the devise gave the wrong AQI for my location ( This is startling Given that it incorrectly connected to the internet).

    Not User Friendly

    • Written by Ana W from Austin

    I live in NYC and I really liked the idea of monitoring exposure levels. The first problem is the device is super small and hard to keep track of. Second, the little metal support is laughable. For the price point they should have done much better. Third, you have to take your phone out of the case every time you want to scan or sync. It’s very burdensome. Overall, great idea but poorly executed.
