Review of the Owlet Smart Sock 3 For the past six months, we’ve used the Owlet Smart Sock 2 (see our review), and it’s provided us a sense of security as we navigated our new role as parents. You may not be familiar with Owlet Smart Socks, but they are an intelligent baby monitor which uses a sock to monitor your kid’s oxygen saturation and heart rate in real-time.

Many parents have found it to be a godsend. With a significant redesign and a few improvements, this Owlet Smart Sock 3 makes the smart monitor much better than ever before.

Unpacking And Packing

There are two options for wrapping the sock: one for the left or right foot, depending on the baby’s age (0 to 18 months).

Concept & Function (Owlet Smart Sock 2 Versus Owlet Smart Sock 3)

Sock, Sensor, and Base Station have all been revamped in the Owlet Smart Sock 3 to make it even more user-friendly. As a result, you’ll receive fewer notifications, and your kid won’t have any unsightly red markings on their feet. Owlet claims that the oxygen measurement is more accurate today than in the prior version.

It may take some time to become used to the new manner of wrapping the new Sock V2 around your baby’s foot when you’re used to the old way. After more than two weeks of use, I have found Smart Sock 3 a better option for providing a snug fit without causing the baby any discomfort. Because of this, I appreciate that the Sock can also tell if the sock isn’t being worn properly.

Until now, you couldn’t view the readings or verify that the Sock was properly wrapped if your kid was still wriggling. You can now do so with the V3, thanks to the Sensor’s continued ability to accurately detect light movement.

Wireless charging is another feature of the Base Station in the new model. Before, I had to use a micro USB connection to connect the Sock to my computer, which was less than ideal. Using the Base Station’s MagSafe-like magnetic attachment, I can simply set the Sock on it.

It’s hard to overstate how much better the Owlet Smart Sock 3 is than the Owlet Smart Sock 2. There’s no need to upgrade if you’re content with your Smart Sock 2. Check out Owlet’s official site for a side-by-by-side comparison of the Smart Sock 2 and 3.

Returning to the question of why an Owlet Smart Sock 3 might be helpful, and intelligent sock like the Owlet Smart Sock can be a lifesaver if your baby needs you while you’re sleeping. Even if you’re sure of everything, there’s nothing you can do about what your baby does when you’re fast asleep. As a new parent, we are a little concerned about our baby’s sleeping habits, as he currently appears to become a side sleeper.

Your baby may roll out of bed put their face down upon that mattress even though you’ve followed all the standards and suggestions. The Owlet Smart Sock is still our go-to nighttime monitoring solution for our 7-month-old baby.

A warning will be sent out by Owlet Smart Sock when the sensor identifies an issue (for example, when your baby’s readings depart from a predetermined zone). You’ll get an audible alert and a red message on your phone if indeed the Sensor detects when your baby’s oxygen level drops below 80 percent.

One night, we made the mistake of letting our kid Elyon sleep with his beloved Baa Baa Sheepz pillow. Owlet Smart Sock sounded an audible alarm while we conversed with friends in their living room downstairs. Being that this was the first time we’d heard it, we knew something wasn’t right, and my phone also displayed a big, red flag message.

To our horror, we discovered that he was on his side, with a 78 percent oxygen level reading, and his face was half-down on our Baa Baa Sheepz Pillow.

We promptly rearranged him and removed his pillow from the cot. We had no idea what was going to happen at this point. When he’s six or seven months old, it’s possible he’s still breathing normally or has figured out how to sit up on his own.

However, if we might not have had the Owlet Smart Sock around him, the worse could have happened. That’s the problem, isn’t it? Our Owlet Smart Sock would be like insurance: you may not believe you need it until the worst comes. If you fail to put the Sock on just before your baby goes to sleep, you should brace yourself for a beating with your spouse.

You can track your baby’s sleep patterns with the Owlet Smart Sock 3 in the same way they can be with a Fitbit, and Owlet’s app lets you see these stats.

The Conclusion Of Our Review Of The Owlet Smart Sock 3

Owlet Smart Sock 3 looks better and provides more accurate readings, reducing the likelihood of receiving inaccurate warnings. Almost a month through into Owlet Smart Sock 3, we’ve been using the prior iteration for a full six months, and it has exceeded our expectations.

We don’t know how we’ll cope without them, as they offered us a sense of security when our youngster was sleeping at night. After receiving our initial red flag notification, we became grateful for Owlet Smart Sock, which sent us hurrying down the stairs. Without the low oxygen warning, we’d never know what was going to happen.

It costs A$479.99 for Owlet’s Smart Sock 3 and, therefore, can be purchased on its website. Only you can decide if it’s worth it for you to get one, although it costs a lot.
