Watch this video to learn why relaxing is important to get the best quality readings while wearing the Band:
Owlet Pregnancy Band Technology
Because of the passive technology used, the Band is meant to be worn during sleep. Unlike the high-frequency waves emitted by Doppler ultrasounds, the Band’s passive sensors collect thousands of bioelectrical signals every second.
Among these signals is your beating heart, muscle noise, and constantly firing nerves, all of which generate a lot of electrical noise in your body. Our algorithms filter through this noise to detect your baby’s heartbeat. It’s the equivalent of picking out a single voice, rows away, in a loud stadium!
How to Properly Relax
Note your current stress level. Although you may think watching TV or scrolling through social media are relaxing activities, we find they do not help mom truly relax her belly muscles all the way. Instead, close your eyes and get comfortable enough to fall asleep for the night. The more relaxed you are the better we are able to find the tiny signals from your baby's heartbeat!
