The Owlet Band monitors your unborn baby while you sleep

Owlet is known for making connected baby monitors and teeny tiny smart socks (yes, really), but its latest innovation is built to use before baby is actually born. The Owlet Band is a soft, thin circle of fabric that wraps around an expectant mother's abdomen and lower back, and it has a small plastic sensor front-and-center. The Owlet Band is designed to fit pregnant women starting at 24 weeks (that's a little over halfway through a standard pregnancy), and it connects to an app that provides all of the actual readings.
