The "Owlet Vitals Monitor" is a wireless pulse-monitor that allows parents to track a baby's vital signs including heart rate and oxygen level remotely from a smart phone. The baby wears a "smart sock." In addition to heart rate and oxygen levels, it transmits skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleep position (rollover alerts) to a parent's smartphone or other internet-based device.

Here, new tech products for babies and kids:

Mimo is a new, technology-enhanced onesie that reports back to Mom and Dad through a smartphone app, letting parents know the baby's respiration level, movement, body position and skin temperature during the night. The $200 Mimo kit comes with five pieces -- three organic, cotton, washable onesies, a turtle clip that attaches to the onesie to help gather data, and a "lilypad" Wi-Fi base station with microphone to transmit data. Parents download an Android or iPhone app to monitor and view stats. Available at dragoninnovation.com.

The Owlet Vitals Monitor is a wireless pulse oximeter monitor that allows parents to track a baby's vital signs, including heart rate and oxygen level remotely from a smartphone. The baby wears a "smart sock." The device also transmits skin temperature, sleep quality and sleep position to a parent's smartphone or other Internet-based device. $250 at owletcare.com.
