'Baby Check' is a wearable device that monitors an infant's temperature and position during sleep or play. Most parents these days have a smartphone or another mobile device with them at all times. As a result, many companies are designing high-tech products that allow parents to monitor the health of the infant directly from their smartphone.

Baby Check is a smartphone-connected system that helps parents monitor their child's temperature and position at all times. The device itself consists of a simple armband that can be worn by a child of nearly any size. The armband features a built-in sensor that monitors a child's vital signs. The device is connected to the Baby Check app, which allows parents to monitor their child directly from their smartphone. The app displays information in real time and also stores past data so parents can monitor the health of their child over time. The app even allows parents to set a temperature notification, which will send an alert to their phone if their child runs a fever or becomes too cold.

The wearable device demonstrates how smartphone connectivity can improve the systems used to monitor infants as they sleep and play.
