Owlet makes one of the few infant wearables: a smart “sock” that wraps around a baby’s foot and sends readings back to an app. They also make a more standard camera that can work with the app to provide a 1080p video feed. If someone you love has a newborn, Owlet’s Black Friday sale could give you the opportunity to save money while giving them a solid gift.

The company is currently running a sale on most of its product line including the Duo, which packages the newest smart sock with the company’s baby-monitor camera. The Duo is on sale for $324, which is a whopping $125 off its normal price. The 3rd gen sock alone is $75 off its regular $299 price point, bringing it to a record low. The stand-alone Cam is $50 off, bringing it down to $99.

When we reviewed the recently redesigned 3rd gen Owlet smart sock baby monitor earlier this year, we saw a lot of overall improvements across the product. The base station was smaller (and less distractingly bright), the sensor was more accurate and the battery now charges wirelessly. However, the sock itself didn’t seem to fit better -- and a slipped sock often produced error readings which can be alarming. But overall the system was popular and gave new parents we spoke to  peace of mind. 

We haven’t yet reviewed the Owlet Cam, but it features 1080p video with night vision and two-way audio over an encrypted WiFi connection. It sends sound and movement notifications while the Sock provides data on heart rate and pulse ox. This gives parents information on their baby’s physical readings as well as a visual feed on their movements in a crib or bassinet. That might be more data than some parents require, but for others it might be an ideal way to cover all their baby-monitoring bases.
