2. A monitor for peace of mind from Owlet
The Owlet Smart Sock 2 provides a little help to parents for the hardest job in the world!
This clever baby monitor uses proven pulse oximetry technology to track an infant’s heart rate and oxygen levels.
Using Bluetooth, the Smart Sock then sends this information to a base station which is designed to only notify you with lights and sounds if these levels fall out of range. Using Owlet’s app, you can also view real-time wellness data and receive direct notifications on your phone.
