QSun | A Smart Sun Protection Wearable

CA$ 47,640

In 2016 we delivered our first product QTemp here on Kickstarter. Thanks to the amazing support of the Kickstarter community we were able to start production. Since then, the QTemp has helped people to be sunburn free all over the world and customer feedback has been truly outstanding. Around 25,000 people have been using our QSun app to live healthier. After 18 months of research and development, we are proud to introduce QSun.

   
                                                    
                                                               

Do any of these sound like you? Here's just a few of the many reasons to care about your sun exposure. Sun damage can hurt more than just your skin’s surface.

Prevention is better than a cure. We have a simple and innovative solution.

QSun is your little wearable companion that tracks your sun exposure to help you prevent skin damage while maintaining healthy vitamin D levels. It notifies you when you’re about to get sunburned so that you can keep doing what you love under the sun.

As an advanced AI-powered wearable, the QSun device monitors and analyzes your sun exposure in real-time. The algorithm combines your current sun exposure with your skin type, environmental situation and sun safety habits to give you tailored recommendations.

Leave your phone behind and take QSun out on its own. With a small, polished design and its own detachable clip, you can easily clip it to your clothes and backpack or attach it to your stroller.  

We all like to spend time outside under the sun, whether it’s enjoying an afternoon at the beach or a walk in the park on a sunny day. Remember, just a few hours in the sun can be more harmful than you think.

Fact is, UV radiation from the sun damages your skin, causing early skin aging, sunburns, and in severe cases, even skin cancer. The skin damage from UV rays accumulates, and can cause damaged dark spots to form that you may not even know are there unless seen with a UV camera.

That's why we need QSun.

And even better, the QSun device comes with the QSun app to take sun safety even further.

                               

Our free app works without the QSun wearable device. However, your location won’t be as accurate and you won’t be able to log data and track your sun exposure just yet without your QSun device.

iPhone: Download the QSun App on App Store Here

Android: Download the QSun App on Google Play Here

Besides using your QSun device on its own, your device also connects with the free QSun app. The app offers many great sun safety features that are customized based on your skin type and personal profile.

Is your sunscreen doing its job? 

Simply scan your sunscreen's barcode with QSun App to find out its key features.

                         

Enjoy peace of mind under the sun, with QSun! Whether you are at the beach, out for a run, or running errands, QSun will keep you and your skin protected.

Going to the playground or spending a few hours gardening? Enjoying winter sports like skiing, snowshoeing, or skating? No matter the activity, winter or summer, QSun will keep you protected!

QSun incorporates a sleek and light design for your ultimate convenience. You can clip it on your clothes, fasten it on your backpack, or attach it to your baby stroller. Wherever you have it, QSun’s got your back.

If our campaign reaches $150,000, you’ll also have the option to upgrade to our premium metal enclosure. With this stylish pendant case, you can wear QSun comfortably around your neck and stay protected in style.

                                              
                  

QSun combines the powerful technology of the digital age with a durable and convenient design. It features advanced sensor technology that measures UVA and UVB to the utmost accuracy.  

                        

When we launched our first Kickstarter in 2016, wearable technology was still building traction in today’s world. Throughout this time, we’ve made incredible progress with this passionate community. Our sun safety products are being used across the world, by parents, children, athletes, adventurers, you name it. We listened to your valuable feedback and are taking sun safety to the next level with QSun.

 

We’re a team of designers, engineers, marketers, and entrepreneurs with a passion for developing new products and creating a more sun-safe world. Over the past three years, we’ve worked tirelessly on QSun so that we can deliver the best possible product. We’re proud of the work we do and can’t wait to share QSun with you.  

The QSun blog is a leading online source for sun safety. We’ve accumulated over 110,000 page views this past year! We generate original content about how sun exposure is tied to various aspects of health, and bring our readers practical tips on how to protect their skin in the sun.

Risks and challenges

The QSun team is an execution-oriented team and we’re confident in our ability to reach our goal. Our success with our previous QTemp Kickstarter campaign has given us the experience to execute such a project and proven our ability to deliver a low risk, high quality product. We understand that you’re trusting us to deliver on our promise. We value integrity and will conduct our business at the highest ethical standards.
The nature of developing new tech mean that there is a possibility of unforeseen delays and supply chain risk. We adjusted our timeline to avoid this; however, we may have to update it. In the case that anything unexpected may occur, we promise to keep you well informed and take the necessary procedures to handle it in the best way possible.
We will make sure to be transparent with our supporting backers by offering regular updates during the campaign as well as during production, and by answering questions from the backer community as they arise. We gladly welcome feedback and backer involvement with our project.
