Owlet has recently launched it’s latest smart sock 2. The sock tracks the child’s heart rate and oxygen level and will notify if levels are higher or lower than preset levels. These levels are a good indicator of overall wellness.
The Smart Sock 2 uses pulse oximetry to measure the infant’s heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep. This information is communicated to the parent’s phone via a base station that is designed to notify them with lights and sounds if something doesn’t appear to be just right with the baby. Using their app, the parent can view their baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels in real-time.
In terms of features and upgrades from the original, the Smart Sock 2 will offer an improved Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet between the sock and base station. Owlet also claims that fewer false notifications will pop up due to more accurate sensor placement and improved software. They also use a new fabric sock design to ensure a comfortable fit and accurate readings.
And while the improved sock is a welcome addition, it’s the connected platform that has the potential to change infant care.
Owlet indicates that the tracking features are just the beginning, with the future set to involve more smart features for the connected nursery. For example, if the baby is too hot or cold, the smart sock could talk to a fan or heater in the room in order to aid sleep.
