The Owlet Smart Sock 3 has launched, and there are a few marked changes with this new and improved model.
For new or expectant parents busy Googling which baby monitor to buy, it’s worth considering investing in the Owlet Smart Sock. The Owlet Smart Sock is the first-ever monitor able to track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels whilst streaming information to your phone to give you real-time readings.
The Owlet Smart Sock is designed to be wrapped around either foot to track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels using clinically-proven and internationally-standardised pulse oximetry. The Smart Sock plugs into the base station and can be popped on charge during the day ready for naptime/bedtime.
The Owlet Smart Sock sends real-time information via notifications to your Owlet base station and then on to your smartphone via the free downloadable app. The Smart Sock allows you to check on your baby at any time of day or night, without waking them, helping you no end with your parenting responsibilities.
The new version of the Owlet Smart Sock continues to track the baby’s heart rate and oxygen through sleep, but with an improved tracking frequency of 97% during an 8-hour session.
The third generation of the Owlet Smart Sock offers an improved design that fits more babies, weighing 5lbs to 30lbs.
It’s a monitor that gives parents the ability to track the movements of even really tiny infants as soon as they’re home from the hospital. We think it’s the parents of the tiniest babas that could benefit from the reassurance this technology offers the most.
The Smart Sock is suitable from newborn to babies all the way up to 18 months, to give you the ultimate peace of mind.
What else is new? Owlet has tweaked the Smart Sock’s technology for better WiFi connection, and the Smart Sock 3 offers better charging capabilities for a user experience you can rely on.
Enhanced wireless charging now means you can charge the Smart Sock in just 90 minutes, while its battery life lasts for 16 hours. The Smart Sock 3 also has an improved Bluetooth range and allows parents to snooze Base Station notifications for a more user-friendly experience.
Owlet’s Head of UK, Seema Sehgal, said: “We care about keeping every baby safe and every parent sane. Parents of newborns should be able to sleep soundly knowing their baby is okay. We designed the Smart Sock to help parents get their life and freedom back. Since the launch of our very first Smart Sock, we have tracked over 600,000 babies and more than one million parents have trusted Owlet with helping them keep their babies safe.”
