Do I Smell Bacon?

Have you ever worried that you’re getting too much sun at the beach?

L’Oreal and Apple just teamed up to create the “La Roche-Posay My Skin Track UV” sensor — a no-batteries-needed clip-on sensor designed to tell you if you’re exposing your skin to too much solar radiation.

For someone whose entire skincare routine is washing my face with soap and water a few times a day and sometimes showering, the $60 sensor-app combination seems a bit extra. But it also further cements Apple’s role as leader of the wearables market with a wellness-infused new product that’s both straightforward to use and objectively helpful.

The gadget, which clips onto clothing or a bag and draws its power from the sun, is the latest iteration of the wearable UB sensor — WIRED reports that previous attempts included a sticker and then a sensor that stuck to one’s fingernail. But this earbud-looking clip is a touch less goofy, and it relies entirely on passive electronics so people never need to remember to charge it.
