Netatmo June

The Good The Neatmo June looks like a piece of jewelry, making it more desirable to wear than other health bands.

The Bad There's no Android availability and the $99, £80, AU$140 is too steep for its limited features.

The Bottom Line For $99, the June is a beautiful, yet unnecessary, way to keep yourself from getting burned by the sun.

Eye-catching gadget that's sun smart

The latest wearable gadget doesn't measure steps or heart rate, it measures your time in the sun. Specifically, Netatmo's June bracelet has a UV sensor to track how much exposure you're getting and recommends the appropriate protection, be it sunscreen, sun glasses or a wide-brim hat. It costs $99 in the US, and you can find it online for £80 in the UK and AU$140 in Australia.

The June hails from European company Netatmo, which also makes a weather station and a smart thermostat. The company has been working with weather products for several years and debuted an early version the June at CES 2014. The June only works with the iPhone 4S and newer, running iOS 7 and above, and there's no Android availability yet.

I volunteered to review the June because with my fair skin I rarely tan and almost always burn if I spend too much time in direct sunlight. While I slather on sunscreen at the beach or an outdoor festival, I frequently forgo it in my day to day life. I was hoping the June would change that, but as I learned, it's not the best tool for that.
