It’s definitely one of the pricier monitors on the market, but we like that it can also act as a traditional monitor, so you can hear your baby even when your phone screen is locked.
Unfortunately, the app can also be a drain on your phone’s battery, and the only way to avoid getting noise and movement alerts is to unplug the camera.
Nanit also recently launched a line of baby wearables that don’t require sensors on skin (sensor-skin contact has led to lawsuits for other baby wearables, namely Owlet Smart Socks). Rather than risky smart socks, the new line includes sleeping bags, swaddles, and breathing bands.
These are ideal if you’re in the market for a breathing monitor or tools that track Baby’s vitals. We’re researching these to see if they deserve a spot on this best baby monitors lineup.
