Tips For Setting Up Your Owlet

March 19, 2016

Peace of mind just arrived at your doorstep! We can’t wait for you to get your Owlet set up for your first night of peaceful sleep. We’ve come up with a few tips and tricks for setting up your Owlet and to help you get started.

What’s in the box?
First things first, what’s in the box? Your Owlet comes with a Base Station, Sock Electronics (the technology inside your fabric sock), three fabric socks to grow with your little one, charging cords and an instruction manual. But before cracking open that manual, make sure you download the app!

What's in the Owlet Box

Download the app.
An instruction manual comes with your Owlet, but all the setup instructions you’ll need are in the app. Owlet set up through the app will walk you through the entire process, step-by-step. You can download the Owlet app for free from the App Store here and from the Google Play Store here.

Don’t have a compatible iOS device?
No problem, you can still use your Owlet without an iOS device.

Setting up multiple Owlets?
The most crucial setup advice we can give those who have twins/multiples; set up the Owlet for each baby independently. It’s important that you set each one up separately to keep the Smart Sock paired to the appropriate Base Station.

Choose the correct sock size
Once your monitor is all set up, you’ll want to make sure you choose the correct smart sock size.

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.
