The printed instructions are decent enough.

It was light in weight and had a cute strap to attach to my wrist or handbag.

Some months later segments of the LCD started to fail.

I have been using this device for some time now and discovered it to be a very useful product. The device appears to be well made. It registered UV rays from low to very high. It rates how long it will take to give you sunburn depending on your skin type and what power of sunblock you put on to protect yourself.

It helped with skin protection from the sun and its harmful UV rays which can cause premature aging, winkled skin and cancer. Sad but healthy golden tan don't help you in the long run. I supposed this device would be helpful toward people with pale milky skin then with those of darker complexion. But people of all colors suffered from sunburns and its painful consequences. It also helpful when you should reapplied your sunblock again. While not truely exact because sunblock wear off due to sweat and water, it will give a good estimate for you common sense to kick in.

Overall, an useful device for those who are careful about their skin and aware of the harmful UV rays that can caused damage to it.

I bought this because of my skin type (I don't tan, I burn) and our vacation destination (Arizona) - the two were NOT compatible!

I arrived un-burnt and, thanks to this clever little device, I LEFT un-burnt!

Works easily, and well. The printed instructions are decent enough.

The strap is long enough to secure the device to your bag, or yourself.

This is a great little anti-sunburn device. Thank you!

I am a big solar watcher of the sun and uv. This device is right on the mark as I have a separate weather station with it's own UV meter. This is great for when I am gardening in the yard. A person knows when that sun is really strong - but you really don't know how bad it is until you press that button and hold it toward the sun. Today I registered, for the first time, a 13. EXTREME. I did not go out to pick weeds because it's not worth the risk for skin cancer. People aren't aware of how much they should be outside, in the pool, etc. on a sunny day. Everyone, especially someone with children who think they can swim for hours should get one and follow it's recommendations for a safe time of exposure.

This item is very useful for determining your burn time in the sun dependant on your skin type. It is relatively simple to set up for an individual user.
Totally worthwhile if you are a person who works outside on a daily basis

I bought this to calibrate relative Ultraviolet Screen printing paper exposure levels when using the sun outdoors and UV lights in the indoor exposure unit indoors. It works well enought for those things. I keep it in the car now and use it primarily as a thermometer.

Pros:
-I am pleased with the build quality: It's made with very good components that feel strong and solid in your hands.
-It's small. I for some reason imagined this to be twice as large. It's about the size of a large FOB.

Cons:
-Takes up to 10 minutes to adjust to room temperature (as compared to higher quality thermometers I placed it next to. Makes be always doubt whether reading is correct.
-As another reviewer stated, will not pick up any reading whatsever through any kind of glass. Could that be true?
-Lacks a few features that would make this a better and more worthwhile gadget to keep around. Adding a stopwatch would only require a software solution and would be worthwhile addition since this will be useful in sunny weather and track meets, etc and to keep track of my photo exposure times. :)

In all, buy this unit specifically if you want to take it to some outdoor activity and set it to remind you when you're cooked enough with an alarm. May be a good item to give to kids who may not have the experience to tell when they've been in the sun too long.

I have been playing with it for a few days now and it's just a fantastic little device. It measures about 3"x 1 3/4" x 3/4" and the shape sort of reminds me of an egg except it's more flattened. Today was sort of overcast but my UV monitor let me now that the UV was 7 and I had approximately 19 minutes in that sun before I burned. The instructions to set it up initially are kinda hard, about the same difficulty as setting a digital watch, but after you enter your stats it's really easy to operate. There is a total of four buttons located on the sides with a UV "eye" as well as a digital display on the front. The battery door will open with a quarter (it takes that battery that looks like a quarter too) and if you are having any problems with the programming there is a pin hole reset button in the back as well. The strap is substantial and I really like the stone tan and sunshine coloring. I have been testing how much UV I get in the car and through my sunglasses and I will probably continue to play with it everyday because I am vain and concerned about my sun exposure.

Here's a well made product that is easy to use. I bought it to measure UV rays. It provides UV indication from "0" to "25"; corresponding levels of "Low", "Medium", "High", "Very High", "Extremely High" or "Over Range" are also displayed.

The device can calculate a maximum exposure time based on skin type and SPF set by the user. Although this user is often wearing sun protective clothing I still find the device to be generally useful. Anyway, for the low price it can't hurt to own one.

It's interesting to toy with it when you first get it. For instance, in regards to UV rays, compare the difference between a clear day and a cloudy day. Also, check the difference through ordinary window glass (which is known to be a UV blocker). For safety sake I like to keep the attached strap around my wrist when taking readings.

There is no "on-off" button; unit remains on. A 3V lithium battery, which I haven't had to change in a year and a half, is included.

I notice that Amazon's "Product Description" is exceptionally good regarding this product.
