- The first FDA-cleared pulse oximeter featuring Owlet's wire-free Sock, designed for in-home use.
- Intended for babies that could benefit from additional monitoring at home, under the supervision of a physician.
- Tracks pulse rate, oxygen saturation level and movement with hospital-grade, clinically proven accuracy.

BabySat is going to revolutionize how we take care of patients. I was so excited when I heard the FDA news - this is something we’ve needed for a long time.
BabySat is going to be a game changer for the pediatric medical community. From a parent perspective, you’re going to be able to monitor babies at home with a lot more reassurance and peace of mind. From a provider standpoint, now you have something that is FDA cleared to send patients home with.
How is this different from Dream Sock?
Dream Sock is the first and only non-prescription baby monitor with FDA-cleared Live Health Readings and Health Notifications for healthy babies between 1 to 18 months. Available to current and new Dream Sock users, starting at the end of 2023.
How can I get BabySat?
Once BabySat is available, you will need a prescription from your healthcare provider to obtain and use it. We’ll provide updates as soon as we can share details.
Will my insurance cover BabySat?
We anticipate product availability and insurance options, including reimbursements and HSA/FSA eligibility will be available later this year. Make sure you’re signed up for email notifications to receive the latest updates!
Is Dream Sock FDA approved/cleared?
Yes! Owlet announced FDA Clearance of Dream Sock. Dream Sock is the first and only non-prescription baby monitor with FDA-cleared Live Health Readings and Health Notifications for healthy babies between 1 to 18 months. Available to current and new Dream Sock users, starting at the end of 2023.
Is this the same product as Smart Sock? Is this a new Smart Sock? Is Smart Sock coming back?
BabySat is not the same product as Smart Sock, as BabySat is a new FDA-cleared medical device to be prescribed by healthcare providers in the US and Smart Sock is a consumer product offered only outside of the US and Canada. BabySat provides real-time alerts if pulse rate or oxygen saturation level falls outside a prescribed zone. Unlike Smart Sock, BabySat has adjusted reading levels and is a prescription only device that should be used in partnership with your healthcare provider.
Owlet does not anticipate marketing Smart Sock within the US or Canada in the future. Dream Sock is the first and only non-prescription baby monitor with FDA-cleared Live Health Readings and Health Notifications for healthy babies between 1 to 18 months. Available to current and new Dream Sock users, starting at the end of 2023.
What does BabySat measure?
BabySat has a rechargeable, battery-powered sensor which is secured over an infant’s foot with a fabric sock. The sensor is capable of detecting pulse rate, SpO2, and motion levels. BabySat has customizable alarm limits for pulse rate and SpO2 which can be set to alert for critical values according to your patient’s needs. Graphs of historical vital sign data are also viewable through the Care+ App to reveal clinical trends which can help inform clinical decisions and effectively engage home caregivers in the infant’s plan of care.
Is BabySat accurate?
BabySat has undergone a series of rigorous accuracy testing in adult and infant study subjects. These studies were required for FDA clearance and reviewed by experts to ensure that our device meets standards set by the International Organization for Standardization. BabySat accuracy for pulse rate and SpO2 are found in the user manual, as well as the Fact Sheet.
