Do Not Disturb (DND) mode is turned on

Updating your iPhone device, iOS version, and a new version of the Owlet App

Enabling notification from the setting
You should check whether the notification is turned on from the setting. If the notification is turned off, owlet notifications are not working on iPhone. To turn the notification on, go to the setting, and find the Owlet app, then turn on the notification.
Turning off the Do Not Disturb (DND) on your iPhone

Checking your Smart Sock and Base Station to see whether they have a low battery
Low or empty batteries don’t allow the Smart Sock and Base Station to communicate with Owlet app. Thus, the app doesn’t get the data. Therefore, notifications do not pop up on your iPhone. You should check the battery of both the Smart sock and the base station. If you find they don’t have enough charge, you should recharge them.
Checking the Sock is not displaced
In our research, we saw in some cases; the babies displaced the socks from their legs accidentally. Thus the app can not get the data. Hence, the app doesn’t show the notification. You should check that the socks are perfectly placed on your baby’s leg.
Contacting the developer of the Owlet app
If none of the above-mentioned points works, you can contact the Owlet app developers. You can find the contact option on the app landing page on the App Store. Moreover, you can also contact them from their social media accounts.
