Seal of Approval Winner

|The Owlet is not your traditional baby monitor. There are no speakers or screens to listen to or watch your baby. Instead it is a medical monitor that tracks your young baby’s vitals, particularly their oxygen levels and heart rate. The device itself is a band and a booty that fits onto your newborn’s foot and transmits data to your cell phone. The app links up with the device very easily and you are guided through an easy setup. Once that is completed you can see current numbers as well as historical vitals for comparison. The booty comes in three sizes. None of our parent testers had ever seen anything like this before but all were quite impressed. The readings appeared to be quite accurate, giving parents peace of mind especially while baby was sleeping. Testers agreed that if you have a premature baby or one with respiratory issues this is an item you are going to want to have at home with you. A word about the packaging, it is superb, it feels like you are opening a very high quality, high tech device. Several testers said it was like opening their iPhone box.
