Not sure how many of you are parents out there, but if you are, you constantly worry about your child’s health, especially if you have a baby (and it’s your firstborn). Although there are gadgets and devices that can help indicate if a child or baby is sick with a fever, etc. there isn’t really anything out that that will monitor your baby’s health. Well thanks to the Owlet smart sock. now you can monitor your baby’s heat rate, oxygen levels. temperature, sleep quality and sleep position to your smartphone via the innovative app. Not only will it monitor day-to-day health of your child, but it can help spot Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs).

The smart sock uses four tiny sensors to monitor heart rate and oxygen level and the app will also send data anonymously back to the company, and they in turn plan  to assemble a database to help spot problems and warn parents about them as early as possible.Created by Jacob Colvin after his own child became sick, the smart sock is currently raising money online for $159 with hopes of going on sale to all worried parents in 2015.
