REVIEW: Owlet Smart Sock 2 Baby Monitor Delivers Peace of Mind

If you’ve ever spent a night worrying whether bubs is okay in their cot, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 is for you!

As a first time mum and and self-professed sleep worrier, I put the Owlet Smart Sock 2 baby monitor through its paces with my first baby, William.

And I have to say, this innovative product delivered some much-needed new mum peace of mind. And all in such a tiny, life-changing package.

Let me introduce you to the Owlet Smart Sock 2 

From one mum to another, the Owlet is an innovative kind of baby monitor unlike anything I’d seen before. Essentially, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 baby monitor is a tiny single sock that you put onto baby’s foot when sleeping. It feels no different to a normal sock, so baby doesn’t even know it’s there!

You connect the Owlet to your smart phone via a Bluetooth connection which then measures your baby’s oxygen levels and heart rate around the clock. It also tracks baby’s sleep patterns, so you can keep an easy eye on nap lengths and total hours rested.

This means the sock constantly keeps track of your baby while they’re asleep, so you can be confident that baby is doing okay.

Less worry, more sleep

Before the Owlet Smart Sock 2, I couldn’t sleep properly because I was worrying too much about my little one.  

I checked on William constantly while he slept (trying to be as quiet as possible!), by shining a light on his chest to make sure he was breathing.

According to all my friends and the articles I read, I’m not alone. Sleep stress is a very common new parent concern, which is why the Owlet smart sock 2 makes such a difference.

With it, I feel more relaxed and I know he is OK.

 It’s different to other monitors, because while I’m asleep, it keeps tracking William for me. And that watchful eye over my little one is a sanity saver for me too. It means I don’t rely on random checks that often result in me waking the baby for no good reason.

Instead, I trust the Owlet Smart Sock 2 to help watch over William. It means less worry and more sleep – and as a new mummy, who wouldn’t want that, right?

The Owlet Smart Sock 2 slips over baby’s foot just like a normal sock – simple and unobtrusive.

So how exactly does the Owlet Smart Sock 2 work? 

The Owlet easily connects to a smart phone and links to a round base station. When all levels are being tracked as normal, the unit glows green. But if levels fall out of the predetermined range, the light glows red and makes a loud sound to notify you, if necessary.

Any notifications are then sent to your mobile phone, plus you can log into the app at any time to check baby’s levels.

The baby monitor also collects historical data that can be handy for our health care provider, if later on we decide to do sleep training or need the information to support us in creating sleep routines. As a new mum, it can be hard to keep on top of sleep times and length, so Owlet tracking all this info is a great way to have everything easily on hand.

I also love that the Owlet Smart Sock 2 will notify us if the sock comes off at any stage, so we really don’t need to worry about a thing! To that point, the sock never came off at all during the entire trial period, however, again it’s peace of mind to know it’ll notify us either way.

Real technology

Let’s face it, as a first-time mum, we often come across a lot of gimmicky products while we’re shopping. It can be hard to tell whether you’re buying real peace of mind or not!

I love that the Owlet Smart Sock 2 uses proven and respected technology! The Smart Sock uses pulse oximetry (also meeting international standards for its accuracy) to give the most accurate oxygen readings. Knowing I’m trusting my baby’s wellbeing to a product using the best technology on the market? Just priceless!

Techy-specs mums will love (even if they’re not techy at all!)

As a new mum, I could immediately tell that the Owlet Smart Sock 2 is designed with anxious parents like me in mind. It’s easy to use, perfect for tired mums and dads, and has a whopping 18-hour battery life to get you right through the night.

With a working range of just over 30 metres, I can use the Owlet Smart Sock 2 right around the house. Perfect for daytime sleeps where I’m hoping to get a few chores done, as well as for longer overnight stretches.

Plus the long range is fab too at night. I relax more knowing baby William’s in good hands and a quick check-in is always at the tip of my fingertips whether I’m in the kitchen, couch or bedroom.

Owlet Smart Sock 2 is really easy to set up! I’m not one for having the patience to follow instructions, but it was simple with the step-by-step image guide. It’s also very easy to put on his foot, and it doesn’t bother him at all. It is secure, yet comfortable.

It’s also reassuring to know that the Owlet Smart Sock 2 gives you ongoing support with chat via the app. As a new mum it’s good to know you’re only one click away from sound advice.

Worry less and enjoy your baby more

Everyone tells you that first-time mums and worry are completely normal. It’s also overwhelming, and these thoughts can become all-consuming! Like many newbies, I’ve found myself waking my baby just to check he’s breathing, but Owlet took this stress away and replaced it with confidence and peace of mind.

If you’ve ‘been there, done that’ like me, Owlet Smart Sock 2 is your answer to taking the anxiety out of sleep-stress. I found that confidence in seeing my baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels in real time meant I could enjoy greater peace of mind, and actually get some worry-free sleep myself.

The best thing about Owlet? With Owlet watching over baby, all I need to focus on is enjoying baby William. And sleeping. Now that’s mummy goals, right there.

The Owlet sock is something I didn’t even know I needed until I tried it. We now use it every night and I feel at ease knowing he is safe and well.
