UV radiation is dangerous because it’s not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s heat, which we feel, so it can be damaging our skin without us knowing.
Our free SunSmart app takes away the guesswork by telling you when the UV is 3 and above with sun protection recommended for your location.
It uses forecast information from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and live UV data from the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) to provide sun protection times for more than 600 locations across Australia.
- UV and sun protection alerts each day.
- A sunscreen calculator, providing you with the minimum recommended sunscreen application, based on your choice of outfit. Plus, a two-hour reminder so you don’t forget to top up.
- Four-day forecast of sun protection times and weather information.
- Live UV levels for major cities, and forecast UV for all other locations.
