Flexible and skin‐mountable electronics have drawn tremendous research attention with the booming of smart medical systems and wearing technologies, however, their environmental adaptability to electromagnetic and solar radiation has long been neglected. Herein, a novel health monitoring e‐textile with robust ultraviolet (UV) protecting and strong electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding performance is rationally developed on an ultraelastic and bilayered nonwoven textile. Via the respective incorporation of silver flake‐modified liquid metal (AgLM) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on each side of a permeable substrate, a Janus sensing layer with electrophysiological monitoring function, Joule heating ability, and excellent EMI shielding capability (up to 38.5 dB in X band) is first fabricated. Elastic microfibers embedded with sensitive photochromic microcapsules are then in situ assembled on the bioelectric‐sensing layer, achieving a bilayered e‐textile with a reversible UV‐chromic property and an extraordinary UV protection factor (UPF) of 335.56. The developed all‐stretchable and UV‐EMI proof e‐textile is utilized as a safe and comfortable on‐skin electronic to provide point‐of‐care health regulation under complex UV/EMI radiative environments. Specifically, stable Joule heating performance and accurate monitoring of electrocardiogram (ECG) and surface electromyography (sEMG) are simultaneously obtained, demonstrating promising applications in multifunctional and robust wearing electronics.
