How the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam works
The system involves two devices: a Smart Sock that uses pulse oximetry to track the baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels, plus a Camera that lets you see, hear and speak to your baby. It also allows you to check comfort details such as room temperature.
The devices can be used together or you can purchase each one individually. The Owlet Smart Sock retails for $429.99 and the Camera is $279.99.
Read our recent Owlet Smart Sock review of what first time mum Jess had to say when she put the Owlet through its paces.
Both work through an app so it’s all on your phone, ready to go. Just download the app and fill in your details. The devices are Wi-Fi encrypted so you know it’s a safe and secure connection and super easy to use too (even if you’re not techy).
Top Benefits of the Owlet Smart Sock
Track baby’s heart rate and breath
You can monitor baby’s vital signs so you don’t have to constantly check up on them, even when they’re snoozing soundly beside you or in their pram.
Easy to put on and set up
The Sock is super easy to slip around baby’s foot and comfortable enough so your little one won’t even know it’s there.
Efficient alert system
The Owlet Smart Sock also comes with a base station which glows green to let you know everything is okay. It notifies you with both lights and sounds if the heart rate or oxygen levels drop. So even if you’re in a deep (ish) sleep, you will still wake up.
Great for sleep routines
The Owlet Smart Sock can also monitor your baby’s sleep patterns and hopefully help you settle into some sort of routine that involves more than just 20-minute cat naps throughout the day. All data is tracked in real-time and is accessible via Owlet’s dedicated app, providing direct notifications from the base station to your smart phone.
Top Features of the Owlet Cam
Watch without constantly worrying
You don’t have to check to see if they are asleep or worry that they’ve woken up and you can’t hear them over the vacuum, the TV or the breast pump’s weird sounds.
Stop the cat naps
This is by far my favourite thing about having a baby monitor – I can see if my baby is starting to stir. If they are, I can quickly run in, pat them, and help them fall back into another sleep cycle. Without a baby monitor, I didn’t know they were waking up until I heard crying. By then it was too late as they were too awake to try and pat back to sleep as their naps were always too short.
Watch from anywhere
You can live stream directly to your phone so you can watch from anywhere – at home, from the office or even from the restaurant when out on a child-free dinner (with someone at home babysitting, of course).
It’s super easy to turn your phone into a monitoring system but another cool thing about the Owlet Cam is that you can listen to your baby while using your phone for other tasks. This is called Active Listening and is one of the many features that sets the Owlet Cam apart from other baby monitors.
Great audio and visual features
The large screen and a 130° wide-angle lens give you a perfect view of bub. Plus, the two-way audio allows parents to soothe and speak to their baby. This is especially awesome when sleep training – sometimes they simply need to hear your voice in order to fall asleep. You won’t even have to get out of bed. #winning
It’s also ideal for toddlers who often need a bit of coaxing to lie down and go to sleep.
Find your sleep stride with Owlet Smart Sock + Cam
It can be tricky to establish a decent sleep routine, regardless of whether your baby is a newborn or a toddler. It’s not just the lack of sleep that’s tough. It’s the whole getting your infant to sleep longer than 20 minutes and learning how you can sleep without worrying that’s extra tough.
This is why having a baby monitor, like the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam is so important for new and seasoned parents. It give us that extra pair of eyes we all need. When you know your little one is sleeping soundly in the other room – and, if not, you WILL be alerted – you can actually shut off, take a break and get some sleep. Remember how everyone tells you to sleep when the baby sleeps? Now you actually can, without worrying.
This assurance that everything is okay, without the restless nights, hours of worry and constant check-in is absolutely priceless.
