LG Electronics (LG) has today launched its personal air solution in the UAE market – the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier to deliver a new level of personal protection. The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier harnesses two H13 HEPA filters, which work to prevent up to 99.95% of harmful airborne matter, such as viruses, bacteria and common allergens from entering the wearer’s respiratory system.
LG’s patented Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the user’s breathing, automatically adjusting the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier’s DUAL Fans accordingly via three speed settings. The dynamic fans are able to speed up when the wearer is inhaling, and slow down to reduce resistance upon exhaling.
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier comes with a built-in, rechargeable 820 battery which can deliver up to eight hours of operation at low speed and two hours on the highest setting. To recharge, users simply need to connect the device to a power source using the provided USB C cable. For added convenience, key components such as the filters, inner cover, face guard, ear straps and strap extenders are also easy to remove and replace – extending usability.
LG will soon release a unique case for the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, which deploys the company’s UVnano sanitization technology to eliminate 99.99 percent of germs in just 30 minutes, using UV-C LED lights. The case can also remove moisture from internal components caused by the wearer’s breath, charge the device from empty to full in just two hours and send notifications to the user’s smartphone via the LG ThinQ app when filters need replacing.
“The introduction of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier to the UAE market represents our continued commitment to not only championing innovation, but also bringing advanced technology to market at rapid pace. While this device could not be any timelier demand for portable protection and access to clean air is not new. For years, we have seen growing interest and concern for maintaining good air quality – which is why we have continued to expand our PuriCare lineup. We are seeing interest in sectors ranging from government and B2B organizations, right through to everyday consumers. We are proud to empower people across the UAE to breathe better air, while remaining comfortable,” said Hongju Jeon, President, LG Electronics Gulf.
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is now available in the UAE at select Carrefour, Sharaf DG and ACE stores for the retail price of 699 AED. Two H13 HEPA Filters are provided in the box, with additional filters available for the retail price of 59 AED.
