Owlet Smart Socks
January 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Owlet Baby Care for allegedly falsely advertising that Owlet Smart Socks (socks with sensors that are supposed to monitor a newborn baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels) will give parents “peace of mind” by providing them with “insights into the health and well-being of their infant” when, according to the plaintiffs, the socks frequently send false alarms and inaccurate readings, fail to detect abnormal oxygen levels and heart rates, and do not work as advertised. (Ruiz et al v. Owlet Baby Care, Inc., Case No. 19-cv-182, C. D. CA.)
