First location-based Air quality level app for Samsung Gear

Posted by TecAce

Our Puget Sound region experienced one of the worst air quality levels recently due to the wildfire from British Columbia region. Not many knew that the air quality level was deemed unhealthy and according to the World Health Organization, the AQI (Air Quality Index) of 150 or higher means everyone may begin to experience some adverse health effects, and members of the sensitive groups may experience more serious effects.

TecAce Software released Air365 - Location based air quality level Gear app last month and it really couldn't have come at a better time for Seattlites. "I used to check my city's air quality level every morning on my phone but I just see real-time air quality level from my wrist right away. It's just awesome." said one of the local Air365 users.

Almost all air quality apps require entering in zip code or city by default but Air365 will find the nearest air quality collection site from user's current location and display the current air quality level.

Not only that, Air365 is equipped with Severe Weather alert feature which includes sending out an alert to the user in case of local/regional weather alerts. More and more users nowadays are health conscious and Air365 should fill that gap just right.
