The Connected Onesie: Mimo Baby Monitor is Baby’s First Wearable Tech
Say goodbye to static-filled walkie talkies and black and white video monitors, wearables are fast becoming the new baby monitor. We have seen a number of wearables focusing on the newborn market to leverage the intimate data collection capabilities of this body-worn tech and the power of a smartphone to visualize and interpret it to keep your baby safe and healthy. Mimo Baby Monitor, a connected onesie, is one of them.  
[[MORE]]Mimo is a machine washable organic cotton kimono onesie that is fitted with non-contact sensors that measure your baby’s health. When paired with the Mimo Turtle, a device that snaps onto the onesie, the system can track and monitor breathing, temperature, activity level and body movements.
The Turtle uses low energy Bluetooth to transmit the data it collects to the Lilypad Wi-Fi base which then sends all of this information to your smartphone in real-time using the Mimo app. As a bonus, the Lilypad base is also equipped with a microphone so you can listen in on your baby from the same app. 
In the app, parents can monitor things like the position their baby is in, whether they are awake or asleep and check their breathing. Parents can also set alerts to notify them if something changes. This type of information is not only good for keeping tabs of baby in the moment, but the app lets you look at your baby’s activity over time to see trends in their sleeping patterns and breathing.
As safety is number one with newborns, the team at Mimo built this wearable technology to avoid any added risks. The Turtle device is oversized so that baby’s have no way to choke on it and the system uses low energy Bluetooth no different than having a regular baby monitor in the room for those that my have questions about transmissions.
The Mimo Baby Monitor sells at Toys R Us. The starter packages costs $199.99 and include 3 Mimo Kimonos, 1 Lilypad base station, and 1 Turtle. Additional Kimonos come in 2-packs at a cost of $29.99. The Mimo app supports both Android and iOS devices.
