The Sproutling monitor, is
considered to be the latest and probably the first big wearable for babies that
collects more data than its competitors, learns from the baby's past behaviour,
and displays it in a less stress-inducing manner.
Sproutling's CEO Chris Bruce,
explains that the device, "is all set to make first time parents feel like
second time parents."
According to Gizmag, a portal
that covers a full spectrum of new and emerging technologies, invention,
innovation, and science news, parents can now be a little more relaxed with the
arrival of Sproutling to the market. The device is essentially strapped around
the baby's ankle, and tracks upto 16 different conditions that include body
temperature, heart rate, baby's motion, humidity levels, and also lighting and
sound conditions of the room. With regular usage of Sproutling, based on the
baby's behavioural patterns, the device can also monitor the baby's sleep
patterns and moods - if the baby is going to be fussy or happy.
The Sproutling monitor is
carefully designed to fit the young and tender skin, which is prone to rashes,
accumulation of fluids and other sensitive skin related problems. The
disposable strap is made of a soft, breathable, washable material made from
medical-grade, hypoallergenic silicone; which is both very delicate and
The unique clasp on the
Sproutling, is designed in a way not to clinch too tightly nor would the baby
be able to kick it off easily. Along with the Sproutling comes a dish that
wirelessly recharges the device.
Parents who download the mobile
app have access to data that is collated into useable observations and push notifications
sent via Wi-Fi connections. Co-founder Mathew Spolin, re-iterates, "It doesn't
overwhelm parents with the abundant information it's gathering—it only tells
them if there's really a problem. For a new parent, they're not going to know
if 130 beats per minute is better than 90, and without the context to really
interpret vitals data, it's just going to create more anxiety and more fear."
Sproutling is reportedly one gizmo that promises to keep parents calm and
reduce the stress of parenting.
The Sproutling has been launched
with its pre-order price of $249 and will later be priced at $299.
