The Owlet Cam 2 and Smart Sock – Review

New parents, congratulations. For those brief moments, the joy of popping your precious cargo into the car seat for the first time and bringing a new human into their first home is unparalleled. Through your red bleary eyes, you gaze at them in your arms as you give them the guided tour and eventually lay them in their first crib and anxiously watch them breathe all night.

Fast forward a few months, exhausted from sleep deprivation you kind of want to give you and your baby a bit of space, let them sleep on their own for a while. This brings a whole new set of anxieties. What position are they in? Are they face down? What if they cry? Is the room at the right temperature? Has their strategically placed musical mobile fallen on them?

Historically you would nip over to their room every so often and have an ear to the door, or at best, an intercom system to hear them should they need your attention. Now this is absolutely fine and if that works for you then great. But for those who need that extra reassurance, there is another way. The Owlet Cam 2, along with the smart sock, is designed to give you the ultimate peace of mind.

The Owlet camera works by pairing to your phone via wifi. Set up is super simple, just download the app and follow the step-by-step setup instructions. This also means that you don’t need any extra devices cluttering up your home. So now you can see and hear your baby from anywhere within your house on your phone. But it doesn’t stop there.

The camera also monitors the room temperature and humidity which, if anyone has been terrified by their NCT classes, is great for that extra peace of mind, knowing that the room is comfortable and at a safe temperature. The quality of camera is sharp with 1080 HD video, night vision and a 130 degree wide angle lens. There is an option for two way audio, which is great if you want to talk to your baby or sing their favourite lullaby from another room. The camera can be wall-mounted, and comes with covers for the cables, keeping loose wires out of the way whilst looking neat and tidy. I attached ours to the cot using a clamp, allowing me to easily take it off and use it when I go travelling.

For those of you (yep, us too) who tend to anxiously watch your baby sleep, The Owlet Smart Sock is a great addition to put your mind at ease. A soft, and comfortable piece of fabric wraps around your baby’s foot with velcro and uses a sensor to measure heart rate and oxygen levels. The app allows parents to receive real-time notifications and alerts if either of these levels fall outside safe ranges.

Originally when we set up the camera we didn’t use the sock, however the first time our baby rolled on his tummy whilst sleeping we really panicked! We gently rolled him back, but he was having none of it, preferring to sleep face down. We put the sock on his foot immediately which gave us (mostly) complete peace of mind, knowing that if he had any trouble breathing, the app would notify us. Thankfully there were no alarms and over the next few days we felt more at ease with him sleeping on his tummy.

The Smart Sock comes in two sizes, for your newborn and when your baby is a little older.

The baby monitor on its own costs £159.00, which does sound pricey, but it’s ideal for tech-savvy parents who want to keep an eye on their baby on their phone, it’s stylish and fits in any nursery.

The price for the baby monitor and sock is £399.00, which is more geared to parents who are in need of some extra reassurance that their sleeping baby is ok. Parents won’t feel the need to stay up and stare at their baby in the early days (which of course we did…), they have the peace of mind of knowing they will be notified of anything alarming.
