LG has unveiled its PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier – a ‘new level of portable protection’. According to the company, this wearable purifier will employ two H13 HEPA filters, similar to the filters used in LG’s home air purifier products.
With its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor, LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly.
The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
Ergonomically designed based on extensive facial shape analysis, LG PuriCare Wearable is expected to fit snugly on the user’s face to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin.
The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery offers up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high.
What’s more, LG’s innovative personal air solution comes with a case that helps maintain hygiene between uses. Equipped with UV-LED lights that kills harmful germs, the one-of-a-kind case can even charge the mask and sends a notification to the LG ThinQ mobile app when the filters need to be replaced for peak performance.
And because every component of LG PuriCare Wearable – from the filters to the ear straps – is replaceable and recyclable, it’s an environmentally responsible solution as well.
“The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits,” says Dan Song, President of LG. “At a time when consumers are seeking ways to make life safer and more convenient, it’s important that we’re able to offer solutions that add measurable value.”
