Founded in 2013, Owlet makes cameras and monitors that help parents track their infant’s breathing, heart rate and sleep time, among other features. It also offer a sleep training app, and is planning to launch a product aimed at pregnant women, its website shows.

Sandbridge Acquisition raised $230 million in September through an initial public offering.
