"The decreasing quality of the ozone layer can increase exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays. These rays have been linked to sunburns, skin cancer, cataracts and immune system dysfunction. The UV HAWK™ quickly and easily tests the UV index and indicates the level of protection you need before enjoying time outside, on the beach, in the garden, on a bike ride; virtually anywhere one is exposed to prolonged sunlight." ::UV Hawk
As the days get warmer and the beach season gets longer and the ozone hole gets bigger, it is good to know that the techies are developing the technology to protect us. The UV Hawk measures the intensity of ultraviolet light and, on the basis for your settings of skin type and SPF of your sunscreen, rings an alarm when your time in the sun is up.
