LG Electronics (LG) celebrated yesterday the Qatar launch of the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, an innovative personal air solution which was unveiled at IFA 2020 (the 2020 Internationale Funkausstellung, the international trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances that took place in Berlin).
LG’s PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has been in development since 2017, undergoing three years of extensive R&D (research and development) and product testing, it was announced during a virtual media briefing.
The PuriCare Wearable is ergonomically designed, based on extensive facial shape analysis.
The device fits snugly around the user’s face, minimising air leakage around the nose and chin area.
The face guard also features a silicone pad that seeks to promote comfortable fit for hours on end and reduce the fogging up of glasses, while the inner cover prevents internal contamination.
“With the launch of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, LG continues to demonstrate its commitment to positively impacting people’s lives through the power of technology,” said Sajed Jassim Mohamed Sulaiman, the vice-chairman and managing director of Video Home & Electronic Centre.
“We look forward to seeing how this innovative product reimagines the future of air purification for users across Qatar,” he said. “We have full confidence that this technology will enhance quality of life and provide people with greater peace-of-mind, wherever they may be.”
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 fans are able to speed up when the wearer is inhaling, and slow down to reduce resistance upon exhaling.
The wearable air purifier comes with a built-in, rechargeable 820mAh battery, which can deliver up to eight hours of operation at low speed and four 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 easy to remove and replace – extending usability.
“The introduction of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier to the Qatar market represents our continued commitment to not only championing innovation, but also bringing advanced technology to market at rapid pace,” said LG Electronics Gulf president Hongju Jeon.
LG will soon release a case for the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, which deploys the company’s UVnano sanitisation technology to eliminate “99.99%” 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 LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is now available in Qatar at LG Brand shops, leading hypermarkets, and electronics stores for the retail price of QR699.
Two H13 HEPA filters are provided in the box, with additional filters available for the retail price of QR79.
