If you have been on the fence as to whether or not to invest in the Owlet baby monitoring system, let me help you make up your mind: buy it.
Now is the perfect time to do so because the company just launched the Owlet Smart Sock 2, the second generation of its popular baby monitor system.
And while parents will be pleased with the improvements made this time around, they will also be able to further track and analyze data on their little ones.
Owlet announced on Wednesday the upcoming launch of its new health platform that tracks even more health data associated with their baby profile.
Called the Owlet Connected Care platform, parents will be able to view health trends based on their baby’s biometric information that includes heart rate, oxygen levels, sleep and history of red notifications, with the goal to be able to identify underlying health issues and detect illness early on like RSV, pneumonia, chronic lung disorders and congenital heart defects.
The platform will include: intensive data tracking history, with 21-hour, one week and one month views of the heart rate and oxygen levels gathered with each sleep; more details about the red notifications that are triggers when levels are outside the target zone; insight to sleep trends to help parents establish routines; and an overall trend analysis that looks at the average levels.
As a result, parents will have all their baby’s health information right at their fingertips to take a proactive role in their health and sleep safety.
“By making this information accessible to parents, we are striving to improve infant health and to help chart a course for proper development,”Dr. Ken Ward, Owlet’s medical director said in a press release. “To accomplish this, we are creating the largest set of infant pulse and oxygen data to ever exist with the Owlet Smart Sock and further validating it through clinical studies.”
Since Owlet has plans to partner with other infant health companies, the Connected Care platform will serve as the hub for the connected nursery. The company has plans to be able to do things like thermal tracking in real-time with the Smart Sock to tell parents when they baby is too cold or hot.
This announcement follows with the release of the newly designed Owlet Smart Sock 2 that features a better fit with more accurate tracking, which was previously made available to consumers with the first generation system for free as long as they paid for shipping.
Today the Owlet Smart Sock 2 makes its retail store debut, available at buybuy Baby in the U.S. and Canada. As always, the system can be purchased at OwletCare.com.
Owlet’s Connected Care is included with every new Owlet Smart Sock 2 purchased through June. It will become accessible for parents in “late spring.”
