Introducing SunSense Pro
Take UV protection to the next level with a more advanced SunSense with Bluetooth connectivity and a smartphone app.
The app is configured with your skin type and other factors, and can if necessary tell you when to apply sunscreen. Updated UV forecasts can be received. Multiple sensors can be connected to the same app and smartphone, and alarm levels are set individually. Easy access to user manuals and other information. All in the same sleek and convenient size as our regular Sunsense One, just 23×5 mm. That also means all your accessories can be used with both the Sunsense One and the Sunsense Pro.
Flexible & Ergonomic
The SunSense One is our standalone personal UV tracker measuring UV index and displaying accumulated UV-dose throughout the day on a two-digit display. No need to connect with a phone. Just tap it, put it on and enjoy the sun. The SunSense App will tell you what dose number should not be exceeded for your skin. Read More

The Power to Measure
Understanding UV Rays
Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation present in sunlight and other sources. Different skin types react differently to UV light. The first step to protection is understanding what you’re up against.
The UV Index
The ultraviolet index or UV Index is an international standard measurement of the strength of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun at a particular place and time.
There are 5 types of skin tone that reach differently to certain levels of UV exposure. Lighter skin types have a much lower threshold of tolerance for exposure, while darker skin types can tolerate more.
The use of sunscreen will increase skin tolerance and exposure time before sunburns occur. Sunsense helps regulate extra exposure time to help you get the most out of your sunscreen!
Accessories and wearing your SunSense
As important as a high-quality sensor itself is how you wear it on your body when exposed to the sun. The sensor shall see the sun the same way as your skin and it shall be as comfortable to wear as your skin as well. That's why we have developed a unique click-fit system and a range of accessories to suit your needs and activities.
Here’s what medical professionals are saying about Sunsense
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight is the most prominent and ubiquitous physical factor in our natural environment responsible both for photoaging of the skin and for developing skin cancer. The sun-seeking habits in our populations contributed strongly both to the increase in skin cancer observed in the last two decades and to photo damage. It is highly recommended for both children over the age of six months and grown-ups to use effective sunscreen under exposure for UV radiation. At the same time it is important to achieve sufficient UV stimulation in the skin for production of vitamin D. Vitamin is essential for absorption of calcium from the gut and plays very important role for bone health. Effective and reliable measure of UV index under sun exposure is therefore important tool to obtain enough UV stimulation in the skin for synthesis of vitamin D but on the same time to avoid sunburn.
