QSun | Sun Safety Solution | 2017

Stemming from QTemp, QSun tracks sun exposure and lets users know when and how to seek sun protection, including how long they can stay outside before developing a sunburn, and how much sunscreen to apply. QSun also tracks vitamin D and physical activity to promote overall health and wellness. Currently in development, QSun will be available for pre-order by the end of 2017. The companion app is currently available for iOS and Android, and works without a QSun wearable.
