'Smart sock' lets parents monitor baby's health via mobile app

New York, Aug 29 : 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.
