It is our mission to empower ALL parents with the information they need to know their babies are okay. In order to accomplish this mission, our product needs to have both affordable prices and be accessible. Every day we are exploring new options to make this possible and are working hard to make technology that is normally thousands of dollars, less expensive and appropriate for in-home use on an infant for $299.
While we’re extremely proud of the work we’ve done so far to make the Smart Sock 2 more affordable than other products that use pulse oximetry, we understand there’s still a lot of work to be done and we’re continually working to make our products less expensive to produce while maintaining the quality and reliability. Here are a few immediate ways we are trying to help ALL parents experience the peace of mind Owlet provides.

Buy the Smart Sock using HSA / FSA funds

Once finished, proceed through the checkout process like normal and use your FSA or HSA card in place of your debit/credit card.
Discount Owlet Smart Sock – Certified Refurbished
Keep an eye on our website — as inventory allows, we sell Certified Refurbished Smart Sock 1’s for a 30-50% discount (price ranges from $149.99 – $199.99). Affirm and gift cards can be used in conjunction with refurbished monitors too! To see if we have any refurbished monitors in stock, check out our website.
Add Owlet to Your Registry
Are you signed up for a registry? The Owlet Smart Sock 2 is now sold in major retail stores, like buybuy Baby, Babies R Us, and Amazon.com, where you can add it to your registry! You can also easily add the Owlet using the online Babylist Baby Registry here.
Gift Cards – Help From Friends
Did you know we offer gift cards on our website? Amounts from $5, $15, $25 and up are available, which is a great way for your friends and family to contribute, even in small amounts. Find them here.
If you find none of these options seem appropriate for your circumstances, you can seek support from one of many foundations who raise funds to purchase Owlet Smart Socks for families in need. Many of these foundations have an application process and quantities are limited. To help, Owlet matches many foundations one for one.
The Future (Insurance, Subscription & More)
Owlet has submitted a 510(k) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), seeking clearance for a medical version of the Owlet Smart Sock. This would open the door to have the Smart Sock covered by insurance and give doctors the opportunity to prescribe them to patients. We are also looking into a subscription model where parents can essentially rent their Owlet device.
