The Owlet Dream app works with the Owlet Dream Sock to monitor your baby’s sleep patterns, heart rate, and oxygen levels. Access to this information can reassure parents and help identify any potential issues early on. This piece will explore how the Owlet Dream system functions and what the app provides.
2. Owlet Dream Sock: Monitoring Sleep and Vital Signs
The Owlet Dream Sock is an intelligent sock that goes on your baby’s foot to monitor their heart rate, oxygen levels, and sleep. It connects through Bluetooth to the Owlet Dream app on your phone or tablet.
The sock has two bases attached to your baby’s foot, with the sensors in between. It utilises pulse oximetry technology to track your little one’s heart rate and oxygen saturation levels. This is comparable to what hospitals use. In addition to showing real-time data in the app, the Owlet Dream Sock warns you if readings go outside preset zones. For instance, you’ll be alerted if your baby’s heart rate or oxygen levels are too high or low. This allows you to check on your little one and ensure they’re safe.
3. Owlet Dream Sock Alerts
One critical feature of the Owlet Dream Sock is its ability to deliver real-time alerts based on your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels. If readings go outside preset zones, the sock will activate smart alerts to notify you.
For example, you’ll get an alert if your baby’s heart rate goes too low or high. It’s the same if their oxygen levels drop below a certain threshold. You can even customise the levels at which alerts are triggered in the app. Getting notifications when something is off lets you check on your little one immediately. The alerts provide extra peace of mind that you’ll know if your baby needs attention.
4. Owlet Dream App Alerts: Get Notifications When Required
In addition to simply showing your baby’s sleep and vital signs data, the Owlet Dream app also gives intelligent alerts to notify you when readings are outside typical zones. This includes:
- High heart rate alerts
- Low heart rate alerts
- Low oxygen level alerts
Based on your paediatrician’s recommendations, you can customise the levels you want alerts for high/low heart rate and oxygen levels.
The app uses different colour coding and icons to indicate the alert’s severity and will give clear instructions on what to do. For instance, the red urgent alert means immediate action is needed.
Knowing your baby is continuously monitored and you’ll be alerted about any concerns can provide peace of mind. The Owlet Dream app keeps you informed so you can focus on resting.
5. Putting on the Owlet Dream Sock
Putting on the Owlet Dream Sock is quick and easy. The steps include:
- Open up the sock and loosen the velcro tabs on the bases.
- Slide your baby’s foot in between the two sensor bases. Make sure their heel lines up with the back of the sock. Fold the fabric over their toes and secure the velcro tabs over the top of their foot. The sock should fit snugly but not too tight.
- Attach the cable from the pulse oximeter to the port on one of the sock bases. Press the power button in the app and wait for the sock to sync via Bluetooth. The light on the sock will turn green when connected.
- Once connected, the sock will start relaying data to the app and monitoring your baby.
- Check the fit regularly and re-sync if the sock loses connection. Contact Owlet customer support if you have any setup issues.
6. Owlet Dream Sock vs. Owlet Smart Sock
Owlet makes two innovative sock options: the Owlet Dream Sock and the Owlet Smart Sock. The key differences are:
- Sensors – The Dream Sock uses pulse oximetry to monitor heart rate and oxygen levels. The Smart Sock uses just heart rate monitoring.
- Design – The Smart Sock has one unified sock design, while the Dream Sock has two removable sensor bases.
- Alerts – The Dream Sock provides alerts for high/low heart rate and oxygen levels. The Smart Sock just alerts for irregular heart rate.
- Battery – The Smart Sock’s sensor has a rechargeable battery. The Dream Sock’s sensor uses disposable batteries.
- App – They connect to different apps with the same core functions but slightly different features.
For the most complete monitoring, including oxygen levels, the Owlet Dream Sock is the full-featured option. But the Smart Sock still provides quality sleep tracking and heart rate alerts.
7. Owlet Dream Duo: Monitor 2 Babies
The Owlet Dream Duo package allows you to monitor two babies using two Dream Socks at once. This is ideal for twins’ or infants’ room sharing.
The Owlet Dream app can support connecting both socks at the same time. This lets you switch between seeing data for each baby in the app or viewing both on a split screen. Alerts will indicate which child they are for so you know which one may need attention. The Owlet Dream Duo provides the same advanced monitoring capabilities for two children. It’s an excellent option for parents of multiple.
8. Owlet Dream: Providing Parents Peace of Mind
Real-time data on your child’s sleep patterns, heart rate, and oxygen levels can provide immense peace of mind – especially for first-time parents. Knowing your baby is being monitored and you’ll be alerted about any concerns lets you relax and focus on your rest.
The Owlet Dream system combines the innovative Dream Sock with the intuitive app to give you a window into your little one’s well-being. Access to vital sign tracking and notifications ensures your child sleeps soundly and safely.
