This year's summer travel trend: jewelry that prevents sunburns

No matter where you are in the world (hiking Machu Picchu, swimming in the bright blue waters of the Bahamas, exploring Rome’s monuments and ruins...), there is one unavoidable constant: the sun beating down on your precious skin. And when you're distracted by the excitement of visiting a new place, it's almost unfair how easy it is to turn into the bright red version of yourself by the end of your first vacation day.

Here to save you a lot of pain is JUNE†by Netatmo, a stylish bracelet that reminds you to reapply sunscreen, alerts you when you’re about to be sunburned and even determines whether you need to wear a hat or sunglasses. Fancy, right? Check out the video below:

The small, one-size bracelet measures your UV exposure and daily UV index and sends realtime alerts to your smartphone via bluetooth.

JUNE’s website offers the choice between a leather or silicone bracelet band and three color choices for the clip-on device (Platinum, Gold, or Gunmetal). Included is a charger for the bracelet’s battery and an app that is compatible with the iPhone 4S and newer phone models.

Add this to your list of essential summer travel gear!
