What happens if I use the Focus features on my iPhone (Sleep or Do Not Disturb)?

  1. Go to your phone's Settings> Focus > Sleep.
  2. Click Apps under Allowed Notifications.
  3. Click the Add App button.
  4. Find and select the Owlet Pregnancy App.
  5. You are all set!

When and how will I be notified if I am sleeping on my back?

When you have been sleeping on your back for a total of 60 continuous minutes, the notification will be triggered. You will not be notified if you sleep on your back for any time less than 60 minutes. Each subsequent 60 minutes will trigger another notification if you continue to sleep on your back.

If you have your sounds turned on (Silent Mode turned off, or Owlet Pregnancy app allowed during Focus time) you will receive a sound notification. Please be aware that if you have the Do Not Disturb or Sleep features on and you have not allowed the Owlet Pregnancy App to allow notifications, you will only receive the home screen notification but no sounds will be heard.
