Moving Boulders

August 26, 2014

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 connectivity bugs. I, however, had an amazing experience where the product worked great on my child all night, and into the next day! We documented this historic moment and wanted to share with you our excitement around this glimmer of light, or “movement of a boulder” as I explain in the video. We have been through a lot of rough patches here at Owlet, but excitement is at an all time high as we move into this next phase of perfecting the product.

I hope you enjoy this quick little video update:

With a product like ours, it is a long journey from functioning prototype to a scalable product, especially where safety and reliability are such important factors. However, if you’ve been following our updates,  you’ll notice we are moving quickly. As we move forward, we will continue to keep you informed every step of the way.
