Got UV?

So here I was looking for a bike mountable compass for when the GPS runs out of batteries and I come upon this site. https://www.altimeters.net/altclipon.htm This link is for the compass.

Now this link was interesting. I've never heard of UV reading watches before and I'm sort of a watch geek. Now I know they have solar panels in watches now (like the ones in the Casio Triple Sensors alt-baro-temp-compass) but interesting to see a watch that claims to guage the UV rating outside. Perhaps you folks in California, Florida and the lower southern warm states can try it out.

I've got a compass velcroed on my bars. It's cheap and light and works. Also great clipped on a watch band when traveling. Much more accurate than the Suunto watch it's clipped to.

My brother-in-law got me one of these https://www.rei.com/product/480045.htm. Haven't ridden much with it mounted on my bike though.
