Washington - Pampers is the latest company to jump into trendy, wearable devices with a new "connected care system" called Lumi that tracks babies' activity through a sensor that attaches to nappies.
The sensor sends an alert to an app notification when a nappy is wet. It also sends information on the baby's sleep and wake times and allows parents to manually track additional info, like dirty nappies and feeding times.
A video monitor is included with the system and is integrated into the app. Pampers didn't say how much the system, which is launching in the US this year, will cost.
The announcement from Pampers, which is part of Procter & Gamble, is a sign of the growth in the "baby tech" industry.
