Nanit is launching its third-generation smart baby monitor, the Nanit Pro, as well as new bed linen which helps the camera track your baby鈥檚 height. The biggest change, compared to the earlier versions, is a new slimmer design and a better 1080p camera, up from the 960p on the previous model. More importantly, the company鈥檚 breathing band, which was previously sold separately (albeit often thrown in as a freebie) is now included as standard. If you鈥檙e unfamiliar, the band is a swaddling cloth covered in dots, which enables the camera to monitor your baby鈥檚 breathing.

The new Smart Sheet, meanwhile, is a fitted sheet for a standard 27.5 x 52-inch mattress with a custom designed pattern in the corners. This design enables the camera to better measure your child鈥檚 growth over time. Lay them down in the bed, snap a picture, and use the system鈥檚 tracking and body-mapping overlay to measure their length. The 100 percent cotton sheets are sold for $35, and will work with all three versions of Nanit鈥檚 over-bed cameras.

In terms of availability, the new Nanit Pro is available to pre-order today from Nanit鈥檚 website, and will hit retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and Target from February 21st. You can buy the wall-mount version with a breathing band included for $299, or one with all the trimmings for $379. That latter option includes the camera, wall-mount, multi-stand (for using the camera on the go and in the day), the breathing band and a smart sheet.
