Consumer Benefits

  • Sharing community: the app can be shared amongst parents, babysitters etc. who are interested to know the situation of the baby
  • Alerts: the app tells in how much time a sleeping baby will wake up and in what mood. It also alerts parents in case baby has sudden high temperature, inconsistent heart beat or other urgent issues
  • Location-based: Sproutling has a proximity sensor so it can tell you if the wearable has fallen off the baby

How To Use

  • The Sproutling Baby Monitor consists of three connected devices:
    • A wearable sensor, embedded in a soft, breathable and hypoallergenic ankle band, that monitors a baby’s heart rate, skin temperature, motion and sleep position
    • A separate smart charger in the baby’s room that wirelessly charges the band and is also equipped to monitor the baby’s environment, including room temperature, humidity, sound and light
    • A mobile app communicates the insights gleaned from analyzing the information collected by the band and the charger, and sends real-time notifications to parents when their attention is needed
