LG is bringing a face mask to market. Called the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, the elaborate face mask features sensors, fans and two H13-HEPA filters. The mask should filter up to 99.95% of hazardous air particles, including bacteria and viruses. However, LG remains tight-lipped on the price of the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier.

LG unveiled its 'smart mask', the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, in August, but it has taken until now for units to begin shipping to retailers. LG will start selling the PuriCare in Asia and the Middle East from later this month, although it is still yet to confirm how much the masks will cost. Similarly, it remains unclear if the company will sell the PuriCare in other markets like Europe and the US.

The PuriCare may look bulkier than your average face mask, but that is because it packs a host of advanced features. On the one hand, LG has included two H13-HEPA filters, which the company claims can filter up to 99.95% of airborne bacteria, viruses and allergens. Additionally, the LG ThinQ app will notify you when the filters need changing. The PuriCare also has two fans that can operate at three speeds. Sensors integrated within the mask adjust these fans according to your breathing patterns, presumably to provide optimal air quality at all times.

The PuriCare comes in a UVnano case too, which cleans the mask when it is not in use. LG has equipped the PuriCare with an 820 mAh battery, that the company claims should last between 4-8 hours on a single charge. Recharging the PuriCare will take around 2 hours via its USB Type-C port.
