How to put on the Owlet Pregnancy Band

This article will help ensure you wear your Owlet Pregnancy band to provide the best readings and for the greatest comfort.  The step-by-step directions below will help you achieve both the comfort and performance the Band is designed to deliver.


  1. Measure your belly circumference. This is done by measuring the widest area of your belly keeping the measuring tape parallel to the floor.


2. Your Owlet Band comes with three size panels: XS-M, M-XL, 2XL-3XL. Size can be found on the side of each panel. When worn correctly the logo and size indicator will face inward.



3. To find the correct size, refer to the sizing guide below. If you are in-between sizes you can wear differing hook positions on either side of the panel (for example, size x-small on the right side and size small on the left side).



4. Connect either side of the panel to your Band.



5. Place the Band on your belly and connect the other side. The gold colored sensors should be directly on your skin.



6. Check Fit

The Band should fit snugly against your skin with all sensors laying flat. 

The Band should be positioned so that your belly button is just below the Medallion.




Ensuring Proper Placement and Fit

The Band should fit snugly against your skin with all sensors laying flat. Direct skin contact is key to high quality readings.



Wear the Band as low as possible

Your belly button should be located just below the Medallion. 



Make sure the bottom edge of the Band does not roll under

This can cause the lowest sensor to lose direct skin contact. 


Avoid wrinkled or folded sensors

You may experience some wrinkles near the Medallion but ensure that the sensors are flat against the skin.



Check for a gap between the Band and your skin

As you sleep, the Band may shift positions. Before bed try to make sure there's no gap on the side of your belly facing up.



Pay attention to the “ground” sensor

The ground sensor is the most important sensor. For our algorithm to work properly the Band requires good skin contact from this sensor. The ground sensor is near the bottom third of the Band, slightly off to the left side; it is the only sensor without a matching sensor on the opposite side.
