If you have a baby with fragile health, or if you simply need the assurance that your baby is okay while she’s sleeping or otherwise out of your sight, you are aware that sound or even video monitors for the baby’s room don’t give you enough information. The Owlet Baby Monitor gives you the extra information you need by using pulse oximetry to monitor your child’s pulse rate and blood oxygen levels. The monitor is in a little sock that the baby wears. It measures the baby’s vital statistics and reports them immediately to a relay device that will sound an alarm if there are irregularities in the pulse or oxygen levels. In addition to the relay, you can also monitor the information and receive alarms on your smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android). The Owlet should be available later this year. You can reserve one for $149.
