LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier addresses the dilemma of homemade masks being of inconsistent quality and disposal masks being in short supply.

The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier employs two H13 HEPA Filters similar to the HEPA filters used in the company’s home air purifier products.

Employing LG’s latest advancements in air purification, high-performance replaceable filters enable PuriCare Wearable to supply fresh, clean air indoor and out.

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.

More details below from the press release.

The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.

“The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits. 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,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

Ergonomically designed based on extensive facial shape analysis, LG PuriCare Wearable fits snugly on the user’s face to minimise air leakage around the nose and chin.

The design also makes it possible to wear the unit comfortably for hours on end.

The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery offers up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high.

The air purifier comes with a case that helps maintain hygiene between uses.

Equipped with UV-LED lights that kill harmful germs, the case can charge the mask and sends a notification to the LG ThinQ mobile app (Android/iOS) 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.

    It’s a good idea but looks a bit bulky. Wonder if it’s heavy and difficult to wear over extended time.
