An upgrade to their Smart Sock 2, Owlet’s third rendition of their Smart Sock comes with new and improved features but still gives parents the same peace of mind.
As the first baby wearable that tracks a babies oxygen levels and heart rate, Owlet’s Smart Sock can give parents serenity as their baby sleeps. Made for babies 0-18 months, the Smart Sock 3 is a BPA and lead-free device that wraps around a baby’s foot and uses established pulse-oximetry technology that has been proven to be both safe and accurate to track key health metrics. Now, the Smart Sock has a longer battery life, offers live readings more often, and fits babies both big and small, ranging from 5 lbs. to 30 lbs.
The sock connects to the Owlet app that can be downloaded on both IOS and Android devices, and the device used to track and see the baby’s health is known as the ‘base station’. Each time the baby’s readings leave their pre-set zone, award-winning technology will alert the base station, which could be potentially life-saving. The Smart Sock can be worn for both naps and overnight sleep, gaining an eight-hour battery life when charged for 20 minutes or a 16-hour battery life when charged for 90 minutes. In addition, it can be charged wirelessly in a ‘drop and go’ manner.
Not only can heart rate and oxygen levels be measured, but the Smart Sock will also take note of a baby’s sleep trends, as it is made to track gentle motion that occurs during sleep and can be worn both freely or under clothing. The Smart Sock uses a Wi-Fi connection to provide consistent updates to the Owlet app. However, the sock will still alert parents if the baby’s metrics leave their pre-set zone in the event of a Wi-Fi outage. Instead, the device will light up and make sounds to notify parents in an emergency.
