SunMate UV-Monitor

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is The Angel Forever.

I realize that most of you are not very worried about the sun these days. However, eventually the snow will melt and the warmth will return again . . . I promise. As for me, I deal with sunshine pretty much most of the year and I am always concerned about keeping my kids’ skin safe from harmful rays. So when I found out about SunMate, I was interested in finding about more because I can use all the help I can get.


Don’t let a few clouds fool you. Knowledge is power, and SunMate gives you the knowledge to have fun in the sun safely while measuring the intensity of the Sun’s strength, allowing you to take action to protect yourself and your family.

  • Alerts of possible over-exposure to ultravoilet rays from the Sun
  • Easy to use and understand. Simply presss the white button located at the top of the monitor
  • LED indicators light up between 1 and 5 depending upon the intensity of the UV light
  • Easy to carry and pack - just 2.5″ tall and 2″ wide. Take your ‘mate’ wherever you go!


Well, it doesn’t get any easier than this. This small, light-weight device comes all ready to use. Just press the button on the top and a light will indicate which ultraviolet index scale your environment is currently experiencing. This in turn will help you take appropriate precautions.

The SunMate UV-Monitor is so compact that you can take it anywhere - the beach, pool, park, sporting events, any outdoor activity. I think it would be especially useful when traveling because you may be exposed to unfamiliar climates.


The SunMate can be purchased on the Purely Products website for only $19.95 or a local retailer in your area. Get yours today!

  3. Renee says:

    For me it says the Lowes in Castle Rock is closest, but there’s a Lowes just down the street from me, and I bet they would transfer it for me if I asked nicely.

    And actually more folks get sunburnt here in CO during the winter because not only do you get the sun from above…but it bounces back up from the snow. so this is a good idea all year round.
