The Owlet Smart Sock May Update
May 26, 2015
You Love us, You really Love us!
It looks like it has been worth the wait! From our survey responses, Owlet has been a hit! This really overjoys our team. It is always really scary to release something to the public. You feel vulnerable because the past two years of your life’s work is on the line. That being said, we feel like the product is still a LOOONG ways away and we hope that you will take the surveys and let us know what YOU would like to be improved. The next few months are going to be all about getting feedback from you so we can improve the product. Please feel like you can drop us a line anytime with bugs or desired features.
This image is actually from our investor deck. Kurt and I have spent the last 3 weeks living out of our suit cases, meeting with investors in San Fransisco and New York. Imagine spending 3 weeks on the TV show Shark Tank. That is for another post though 😉
Our last shipment went great! Since our last update we received an outpouring of people who submitted experiences and even more early supporters that decided to give up their spot in line for someone in need. Watching this unfold has been a humbling experience, and to be honest, it gives me the goose bumps when I talk about it! Via email, we connected people who gave up their spot to parents who were in need. What followed was beautiful. Many sent photos and shared stories that brought us to tears. We feel so blessed to work with you people. Stay awesome!
Just about everything in our second batch is made. We are just waiting on fabric socks to arrive. We will be shipping a few hundred units out per week and all units should be shipped in the next 4 weeks!
A Little Help?
Owlet was chosen by IBM as one of the top social businesses with the potential to change the world. We went head-to-head with 10 other companies and made it to the top 5. Now the only thing left to decide the winner is the social voting. If you could retweet this message or just click to tweet this message then we would really appreciate it. If you are not big on the Twitter thang, no problem, we still love you. 🙂
Welp, that is our update for this month!
How is everyone enjoying the product? Anything else we should add?

The Smart Sock is the first baby monitor to track your baby’s oxygen level and heart rate—good indicators of Baby's overall well-being—while they sleep. If your baby’s readings leave preset zones, you'll receive a notification that lets you know your baby really needs you. Now you can feel more confidence, more freedom, and more peace of mind knowing that Owlet is here to help.
Our all-new Smart Sock is the third of its kind and it's smarter than ever.

Amazing Backers, This week we had our first full-system, live-on-baby over-night testing. Three of us from the office took the device home to put on our 5-, 4-, and 2 month old babies (there are a lot of babies being born at Owlet). The two other dads had a long night, full of false alarms and…
