Five Cool Features You Didn’t Know About the Owlet Smart Sock

If using pulse oximetry technology to watch over your little one isn’t cool enough, we added in some extra features to your Owlet Smart Sock that you might not know about! Check them out below: 

Dim the Base Station Light

If the light from the Base Station is keeping you or your baby up, you can dim the light to a softer glow! You’ll still see the changing colours from notifications, just with less light than the default mode. For instructions visit this page.


Turn off Smart Sock Electronics

Save battery life by turning the Smart Sock off when you’re not using it! Just touch the Smart Sock to the top of the Base Station and the Sock Electronics will shut down. To turn the Smart Sock back on just plug it into the Base Station!



Adjust Base Station Notification Sensitivity and Volume

To adjust the volume on the Base Station or adjust the sensitivity of notifications, go to Settings > Base Station Preferences in the app! You can adjust the notification sensitivity for yellow and blue notifications from the default to low or sound off. You’ll still receive notifications from your phone so you can stay in the loop. Keep in mind that red notification preferences are not editable.


Test the Base Station Notifications

If you’re wondering what a red notification, or any other Owlet notifications, sounds like, just test it out in the app! Go to How Owlet Works > About Notifications > Colour and Status > Base Station Notifications in the app and test out those notifications. If you don’t have an Owlet yet but still want to hear what the notifications sound like, check them out here.


Smartphone Compatible – View Live Readings

You can view your baby’s live readings from anywhere with your smartphone! If you’re at work or at the store, but still want to check on your baby, just open up the app. You’ll be able to see baby’s heart rate and oxygen.

Owlet is compatible with devices running iOS 8 and higher and Android devices running Android 4.4 (KITKAT) or higher. 

We hope you enjoyed learning a little more about Owlet’s feature set! If you don’t already have an Owlet Smart Sock visit our website to join the Owlet family!
