Owlet Announces Its Newest Innovation: The Owlet Band, a Prenatal Wellness Product
Owlet wants to continue helping you rest assured, but now during pregnancy. Announcing its newest innovation at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Owlet Band will help mothers-to-be track their baby’s wellness in utero by wearing a comfortable band wrapped around their abdomen. This first-of-its-kind consumer wearable product to connect pregnant moms with their babies will allow them to track their own sleep position, hear their baby’s heart rate, automatically count their baby’s kicks, notify them of contractions and receive a wellness report to share with family and friends.
Kurt Workman, CEO of Owlet Baby Care, is thrilled to be launching the product to consumers late this year. “As a company of parents, it is important to us to bring innovative technology into a family’s everyday life in an easy-to-use form with functionality that is meaningful to the health and wellness of the baby and family.”
Soon-to-be-moms may stress wondering whether their baby is okay. But now mothers will not only be able to hear their infant’s heartbeat but automatically count their baby’s kicks, all providing a little more peace of mind.
Using comfortable soft fiber blends, the Owlet Band hugs the shape of the mother’s growing and changing body from 24 weeks to full-term and uses passive and trusted ECG technology 30 times smaller than comparable technology. Due to its thin qualities, the sensors provide outstanding comfort without compromising signal quality to “cast a net” of sensors over the entire abdomen and track an unborn baby’s wellness as he/she moves within the womb.
The Band is even designed to report on contractions to help mothers learn what they feel like and stay informed on how their body is preparing for labor. Plus, mothers can save and record audio of their baby’s heart rate, allowing them to bond with their little one months before meeting them.
“This product could be a game-changer in determining the wellness of a fetus,“ said Jeff Humpherys, Owlet’s Chief Data Scientist.
