Wearable Baby Monitors – Class Action Investigation
Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating potential lawsuits related to wearable baby monitors, “smart,” app-based baby monitors that monitor the infant’s biometrics—heart rate, respiration, blood oxygen, and other vital signs—and transmit those measurements to a smartphone app. Wearable monitors may take the forms of socks, onesies, diaper clips, and more. Brands of these monitors include the Baby Vida, MonBaby, Owlet, Snuza Pico, and Sprouting wearables, which cost anywhere from $150 to $300 each. A recent review published in the Journal of American Medical Association found that there’s no scientific evidence that these devices do anything useful, and that they may do some tangible harm by causing anxiety for parents without cause. These devices are not currently regulated by the FDA. C&T is investigating whether these devices function improperly or are being falsely advertised.
