Heart Rate Baby Monitor | Tech for New Moms
For those new mothers out there, the newest generation of the Owlet Smart Sock keeps babies safe while they sleep by tracking their oxygen level and heart rates.

It is BPA and lead free and small enough to fit under footie pajamas. On the other hand, the base station is designed to light up in various colors to signify warnings and help parents quickly tend to babies in need. Once fully paired with a compatible smartphone, the Owlet app shows an array of tracking data, such as total hours slept, number of times the baby woke up, and the quality of sleep received.
The Owlet Smart Sock is quick charging and promises a 16-hour battery life to ensure that the monitor won’t fail when you need it most, even if the Wi-Fi connection is disrupted.
