A tracker for all things. This is the way of the world, and so it is now with pregnancy. Bellabeat is a new tracker that pregnant moms can put over their wombs, getting baby vitals and giving them brand new Facebook posting material.
Bellabeat connects to smartphones through the headphone jack. A pregnant mom-to-be can then put the device over her womb, which will give a readout of the baby’s heart rate, which, of course, can be shared online. The companion app also has a section for organizing and tracking prenatal care, and can calculate significant dates in pregnancy, like expected due date. The device and app combo can also give the baby a (very) early head start into a world awash in fitness trackers – it’ll tally up the number of kicks once baby starts getting restless in the womb.
Bellabeat itself costs $129. The app is available for free for iOS and Android, but it’s currently just in beta for the latter.
