Evidence for Peace of Mind – Data on 47,495 Owlet Smart Sock Users Summarized in a Pediatric Journal

Huge news at Owlet!

As one of the pioneers for in-home monitoring of infants we felt a big responsibility to provide superior technology and peace of mind for parents. Nearly two years later, we are proud to continue pioneering by being the first in-home health monitor to share its unique data collected from nearly 50,000 newborns. Our observations have been published in Global Pediatric Health, a peer-reviewed medical journal!

The paper includes analysis from tens of thousands of babies monitored at home with the Owlet Smart Sock and validates what so many of you already know and have experienced in your own lives: the Smart Sock reduces parental anxiety, improves Mom’s and Dad’s sleep and is easy to use.

To our knowledge, our publication shares the most extensive dataset that describes the advantages of the new generation of home-monitoring technology by Owlet in newborns.

You can read the full-text article here. Here are some highlights for you:

  •      Evidence for “Peace of Mind:” 96% of parents using the Owlet Smart Sock feel less anxious, debunking the long-held theory that in-home monitoring leads to more anxiety for parents.
  •      Better Quality Sleep for Parents: 94% of parents report better sleep quality while using the Owlet Smart Sock.
  •      Generation Shift and Knowledge-Empowered Millennial Parents: 75% use in-home monitoring for peace of mind or the desire to know more about their child.
  •      Healthcare Confidence: 37% of Owlet Smart Sock users had at least one healthcare industry professional in the household.
  •      Safe Sleep for Babies: 82% of parents report practicing the safe sleep guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

This is the first of many observations and clinical studies we plan to publish. It is in line with our mission to better care access for babies in the home by empowering parents with the right information at the right time.

Do you have anything for older children who are uncooperative with pulse ox?



Hi Sophie, we don’t currently have a product available for children older than 18 months.



Really interesting. I was curious how common a red alert for high heartrate was. After reading this I am even more thankful I was gifted the owlet. Ours went off three times last week for high heartrate and when I checked on my 4 week old son he was drenched in sweat. Poor guy has extremely painful stomach issues. I purchased the connective care app and am able to see when his heartrate starts to climb I need to give him his medicine before the pain becomes distressing. Thank you for this and to the amazing mom who blesse us with this❤️

We traded in the hospital issues heart and apnea monitor for the Owlet after discussing it with our pediatrician. So far, it’s been terrific at providing us up to date status on our daughter. (She was 3 mo premature so we are well-versed in monitors)-the only complaint that I have is the monitor does seem to pick up in movements and will not give a reading. Our baby is super active so this can be a bit frustrating to be unable to get a reading for 10-20 minutes if she’s being playful or just moving.



Wow this is so fantastic! Way to go Owlet!
