How does the Owlet Band work?

The Owlet Pregnancy Band uses passive, ultra-thin sensors to track bioelectrical signals inside the womb. These signals are sent to the Medallion where they are interpreted by state-of-the-art algorithms. The Medallion also sends this information to the Owlet Pregnancy App via Bluetooth. A strong Bluetooth and WiFi connection ensures that the app receives and displays all collected data accurately. Learn more about the safety and accuracy of the Band.



  • The Owlet Pregnancy Band requires access to an iOS device and the Owlet Pregnancy App. The iOS device must be iPhone 6s or newer; minimum OS version 14.
  • A wireless internet connection is required while setting up your Band.
  • In order to get the best readings possible, users must be 24+ weeks pregnant to use the product.
  • Intended for use by mothers pregnant with a single baby; the Band does not accommodate twins or multiples. 
  • The Band is intended for use while sleeping.

How to set up the Owlet Pregnancy Band

  1. Download the Owlet Pregnancy App, available only for iOS



2. Create an account

If you already have an “Owlet Care App” account for an Owlet Smart Sock or Owlet Cam, you may use the same credentials, but you still need to make a new account.

3. Set up the Band

Follow the in-app instructions to pair your Medallion with your account. To set up your device, you must enable Bluetooth, turn on wifi, and have a wireless internet connection. During setup, the Medallion may need to be updated. Medallion updates can take up to 10 minutes. During the update, do not take your Medallion off of the charging station or force quit the app.

4. Create a pregnancy profile

Follow the in-app instructions to create a pregnancy profile. 

How to wear the Band

How to use the Band

Start a Session

  1. Remove the Medallion from the charging station and place it in the Band
  2. Put the Band on 
  3. Start a session in the Pregnancy App 
  4. Go to sleep (3+ hours for best results)
  5. Wake up and press “end session” in the Pregnancy App to view your session report
  6. A loading screen appears while data transfers from the Medallion to the app. Keep the phone within a good Bluetooth range of the Medallion (less than 10 feet is recommended).

View your session report

Your session report gives you the data collected during your session. There are 3 kinds of session reports:

  1. Completed Session. After wearing the Owlet Pregnancy Band overnight, you will receive a report the following morning showing you a graph of your baby’s heartbeat data. Click the question mark next to each graph header for more information on interpreting the graphs. Click on “listen” to hear audio of your baby’s heartbeat. You can share this with friends and family.
  2. Incomplete Session. The Band requires a minimum time requirement of 20 minutes in order to determine if your baby’s heartbeat looks good. If the session is less than 20 minutes, you will receive an incomplete session. This session report does include the limited data the Band collected.
  3. Low Quality Readings. In this case, the Band was unable to generate a report of Baby and mom’s readings due to a variety of reasons. Click here to learn more about why this might be happening and how to resolve it. We know this is a disappointing result. Most mothers who experience a low quality reading report improvement over time and by following the recommendations in the article linked above.

Review your session report history

The History tab in the app displays a list of all completed sessions. Pull down on the list to refresh data, or close and re-open the app.

Charge the Medallion

The Medallion takes approximately 2 hours to achieve a full charge and should last approximately 8 hours. If the battery dies during the session, not to worry. All of the data collected by the Medallion will be sent to the phone once the Medallion is powered up and within Bluetooth range of the phone (less than 10 feet away). 

Whenever the Medallion is not being used for a session, we recommend keeping it on the charger as it will slowly lose battery life.

We recommend washing the Band every 3 weeks. Learn how by clicking here: How to wash and store your Owlet Pregnancy Band
