Quantified Babies: Is Wearable Tech For Your Newborn Really Safe?
Until now the focus of wearables for children has been firmly in the safety space, with startups flogging souped-up GPS trackers to keep anxious parents happy about where their ten year olds have run off to.
But over the past twelve months a number of brands have emerged, including Sproutling, MonBaby and Mimo, that are developing wearables to track all kinds of metrics from babies that are just a few days old.
These metrics include sleep duration, temperature, breathing rate, motion, sleep position, and that’s just the data tracked by some of the most high profile devices on the market. There’s way more out there. Clearly a wearable tech baby boom is on the way.
