For a very long time the only baby monitoring system available for parents were the sort that are like walkie talkies to allow mom and dad to hear baby. Some of those have video, but they are all very similar. A new type of baby monitor has been unveiled called Sproutling. It's a smart wearable device that attaches to the baby's leg.
The monitor is connected to a soft and hypoallergenic strap that can be machine-washed. The system is intended to be worn by kids from 0-2 years of age. When worn, the Sproutling system can monitor the temperature of the child, heart rate, and motion. It charges via a charging dish that can monitor temperature in the room and ambient noise.
An app runs on the parent's smartphone and offers an easy to use system for showing how the child is doing at any time. A line that fills in around a circle on the app shows how long your baby should sleep. One cool aspect of the device is that parents can monitor baby while they aren't home. That will make it easier to leave junior with a babysitter for the first time.
