`Smart sock` lets parents monitor baby`s health via mobile app
New York: Do you worry over how your baby is sleeping at night? Well, then the new `Smart sock` is perfect for you.
Developers have designed a sock that lets parents monitor their baby`s health from anywhere via a mobile phone app, the New York Daily News reported.
The sensor-packed sock, from Owlet Baby Care, measures the baby`s heart rate, blood oxygenation levels, sleep quality, skin temperature, and sleep position, and transmits it to the parent`s smartphone.
The sock, which early bird backers can get for 159 dollars, features a four-sensors pulse oximeter, which measures skin temperature and heart rate.
It also consists of an accelerometer that tracks your baby`s movements, and an alarm sounds if your baby rolls onto his or her stomach.
