Secret #3: Did you know that the Base Station charges the Smart Sock?
Yep! The Smart Sock is charged every night with a micro USB cable that connects the Smart Sock to the Base Station. The Base Station stays plugged into the wall and charges the sock. The battery in the sock lasts for 18 hours! That’s long enough for naps and sleeping through the night.

The yellow notification is designed to notify when the Smart Sock is not finding a good reading. The Base Station will flash yellow and will play a song. Learn more about yellow notification here.
The blue notification is designed to notify when the Smart Sock is too far from the Base Station or when something is blocking the Bluetooth signal. Learn more about blue notifications here.
