The visuals for our app have been completed. The final coding will be done within the next couple weeks.
After 200+ hours of overnight testing with parents, we have finally narrowed in on the ‘sock’ design. This design stayed on overnight and also allows accurate sensor placement.
We finished the firmware and hardware debugging of our “relay station”. As you can see it took a whole box of brownies, noise canceling headphones, and a quadrocopter for decompression. At Owlet we know how do help our firmware guys get in the zone.
A little creepy we know! But when you’re making a wearable for a baby’s foot, sizing is extremely important. We’ve taken foot prints of over 75 babies and plastic molds of 22 babies. This has been very helpful in analyzing our different sock concepts and final sensor positioning so we get the best reading possible.
As always, in home testing is our top priority. We were able to do 250+ hours of testing in homes. We tested everything from sock concepts to pulse oximetry accuracy.
What to expect in July:
1) 10 day/10 unit in home test.
2) Start clinical accuracy testing.
3) App finalized and extensively tested for bugs.
4) Sock and Enclosure Designs finalized.
5) Units ordered for August beta testing.

The Smart Sock comfortably wraps around your baby’s foot to track heart rate and oxygen levels using clinically-proven pulse oximetry. The base station glows green to let you know everything is okay but will notify with lights and sounds if something appears to be wrong.
How to Survive the First 6 Weeks With a Newborn
My newborn is 8 weeks old. Now that I feel like I can come out of hiding and not wear pajama pants all day (okay, just on Sundays), I can’t help but feel relieved that those initial six weeks are over. Lack of sleep, making sure baby is fed, clean, secure, and sleeping, not to…
