Track baby’s sleep sessions and heart rate with this smart sock — and save nearly $76! (Photo: Amazon)

Owlet’s Smart Sock is a wearable device for babies and children that tracks sleep, heart rate and bloody oxygen level. It wraps around the foot and ankle and measures using a sensor tucked inside the fabric. The washable sock pairs to a Base Station that relays information to your smart phone so you can check in on your child from anywhere. Right now the Smart Sock is down from $300 to just $224.

One reviewer, a first time mom, says “Set up was a breeze for both the app and the Base Station, and as soon as the sock is synced it’s ready to use. Getting the sock placed the first time was a little bit challenging on a wiggly baby foot, but the guides in the app have a helpful step-by-step instructions and videos to figure that out…I would 100% recommend this to any other first-time parents out there, or anyone who might be looking for extra peace of mind while baby is sleeping!”

$224 $300 at Amazon

Owlet also makes a crisp, clear 1080p baby monitor that can display your nursery, day or night, and can send notifications to your phone. The Cam is 34 percent off making it just $99.

A reviewer who left the Hatch five stars on Amazon, says “the sounds are so crisp and soothing and realistic. The colors are beautiful. The sensor is insanely practical — along with the phone app to control. If my daughter wakes in the middle of the night and cries, I can just change the sound to a lullaby FROM MY PHONE and she would quiet and go back to sleep.”

Oh, and right now they’re only $80 (which is almost half off!). 

A happy user shares: “These earbuds are amazing. They sound great….because of the Qualcomm AAC HD support. The battery life is great. It has approximately 7.5 hours on a single charge, and 28 hours total charge with the charging case. They look is very aesthetic and minimalistic. It’s one of the best looking wireless earbuds in my opinion. The soundstage is superb. It sounds very clear all around and the bass is punchy and strong.”
