Owlet Introduces New Smart Sock 2 and Connected Care Platform for Parents

As part of our vision to transform infant health and safety for every baby, today we announced the next big thing in the Connected Nursery: the new Smart Sock 2 and the upcoming release of a Connected Care health platform, designed for babies in their first year of life. With the new Owlet Smart Sock 2, the Connected Care platform provides parents with new data analysis and trends based on biometric information about their baby, including heart rate, oxygen levels, sleep trends and red notification history.

Owlet Connected Care Platform

A first of its kind, the Connected Care platform tracks more data from the Owlet Smart Sock than parents previously had. It allows parents to view trends and use the insights to be proactive about their infant’s health; making decisions based on trends and data, as well as charting a course for development. Part of the new Connected Care platform will include future partnerships with other companies to integrate data that will help complete the picture of infant health, with Owlet as the hub for the Connected Nursery. The beta version of the platform will be available this summer.

The beta version of Connected Care will include:

  • Historical data tracking: 24-hour, one-week and one-month view of heart rate and oxygen levels tracked while baby slept
  • Red notification information: More detailed information and tracking of when an Owlet Monitor notifies parents of levels outside the preset zone
  • Sleep trends: Parents can more easily see their baby’s sleep patterns and help them establish a healthy sleep routine. Future updates of the Connected Care platform will include thermal comfort.
  • Trend analysis: Looking at average levels and rates

Connected Care will be included with every new Owlet Smart Sock 2 purchased through June and will be available for parents to use this summer.

Owlet Smart Sock 2

Owlet is designed by parents for parents; user experience is paramount at Owlet. Building on the award-winning design of the original Owlet Smart Sock, the new Smart Sock 2 is the result of parent feedback and our continued investment in product design. The result is the most sophisticated, accurate and reliable version of the Owlet Smart Sock yet. The Owlet Smart Sock has been used by more than 80,000 families, with nearly 200 billion heartbeats analyzed.

The Owlet Smart Sock 2 features and enhancements include:

  • Improved bluetooth range, up to a 12x increase (100 feet), between the Smart Sock and Base Station
  • Innovative new sock design, offering a more secure fit
  • Easier, more intuitive sock placement, meaning fewer false notifications due to more accurate sensor placement
  • Enhanced smartphone app for improved user experience
  • Advancements in firmware and hardware to reduce false notifications
  • Updated fabric sock can be worn on both feet, allowing parents to alternate as needed, as well as breathable toes through all sock sizes

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 can I use/access connected care?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hi! Just download the Connected Care app and sign in using the email and password you created for the Owlet app. 🙂

Is there any plans to release a Owlet Smart sock 3 ?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hi Mariela, we’re always working on improvements but we do not have any launch dates for a new version of the Smart Sock at this time. Make sure to keep up with our social media pages or sign up to receive emails from us as we’ll always announce new product releases there!

How does the connected care app determine quality of sleep? My 6 week old sleeps for 5 hours at night and he will consistently have a “poor” quality of sleep. His O2 and heart rate are normal through the night..

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hi! We’ve developed algorithms based on heart rate, oxygen and movement, and from those algorithms we identify the differences in sleep. Our team would be more than happy to look into this for you if you send them feedback through the app or to subscriptions@owletcare.com!

Are the oxygen ranges adjustable yet? Like if I want to be notified before it dips to 85 can I set it up for the notification of the range I want like a higher one if 100-90?

cmerrell@owletcare.com'

Channing Merrell

Hi Ashley! The Owlet Baby Monitor notification strategy was set by a team of pulse oximetry specialists, pediatricians, neonatologists and pulmonologists. The notification thresholds are preset and are not adjustable. Hopefully, that helps answer your question!

If you own base gen 1 can you buy just replacement smart sock version 2 to use with gen base 1?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hey Angelee! You should be able to do this but give our team a call at (844) 334-5330 so they can double check. 🙂

We are having twins. What are my options. Will they inferior with each other and can you connect 2 socks to one app?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hi Joel! Here’s how it works with twins- Currently, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 and mobile application are not optimized for use with twins. Two separate full Owlet Monitors and two separate mobile app accounts are required to monitor and view both twins at the same time. With two app accounts, you could either log into both babies’ accounts through two different mobile devices simultaneously or if only one mobile device is housing the app, you would need to log out of one twin’s account and then log into the other. Hope that helps! Please feel free to send out team an email at contact@owletcare.com if you have any further questions. We’d love to help!

Hi I am looking to purchase. Do you have to buy the connected care after the 14 day trial or can you run it without. Thank you

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Great question! While Connected Care does offer additional insights, it is an optional purchase and not required to enjoy your Owlet.:)

Good afternoon

Is the owlet sock 2 compatible with Android?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hey Sandra! Yes, the Owlet App is compatible with Android devices running Android 4.4 (KITKAT) or higher.

Gabriela

What’s the difference between sock 1 and 2?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hey Gabriela! The Owlet Smart Sock 2 is the most sophisticated, accurate and reliable version of the Owlet Smart Sock yet.
It features new updates like increased Bluetooth range, a more comfortable sock design, and advancements in firmware and hardware.

Can you use connected care with the first gen sock?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Yes, you can!

Will the smart sock 2 work with my original setup?

kyrie.r@owletcare.com'

Kyrie

Hi Nicole! If you have a profile set up from the Smart Sock 1, you’ll just want to delete your baby profile and go through the onboarding process when setting up your Smart Sock 2. Do this by going to App>menu>account>baby profile>delete. You’ll just need to reregister the new base station. If you need any assistance, just call the Owlet Team at (844) 334-5330 Monday-Saturday 7am-9pm MT.

I am the proud owner of the owlet sock 1 and 2. I can not praise this company enough. The owlet has brought me peace of mind. I beleive every mother should own one for their baby. Special thanks to Ashley Wadley (a customer service representative with owlet) for the help through the live chat help, and late night support for me.
