Owlet (company)

Owlet (company)

Owlet is a Utah-based company developing baby monitors to track a baby's heart rate and oxygen levels and stream video and audio to phones.


Founded in 2013, Owlet adapted pulse oximetry technology, used by surgeons to monitor oxygen levels and pulse through a finger, to a wireless sock for babies. Owlet's Smart Sock is able to monitor heart rate and oxygen levels. The sock is connected to an in-home monitor, which emits warnings and can stream data real time to a connected app.

Owlet also has the Owlet Cam, which streams video and two-way audio to a connected smartphone.
