This marks the retail expansion of the baby monitor into popular brick & mortar and online stores such as buybuy BABY, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Best Buy US & Canada.
December 17, 2019
Miku baby monitor, the flagship product of Miku, captures and analyzes breathing, sound, and sleeping patterns with no wires or wearables, is made available online at buybuybaby.com, target.com, bedbathandbeyond.com, bestbuy.com, and bestbuy.ca, as well as in select US and Canadian retail locations. The baby monitor uses proprietary SensorFusion technology developed by a team of military research engineers. With its launch into 200+ storefronts globally, Miku, “the brightest mind in monitoring,” is now more accessible than ever before, and will offer the opportunity for families to access the latest in baby monitoring technology.
“We considered parents and caregivers every step of the way when creating Miku, from developing our technology to designing our product, and now families can easily gain precious peace of mind by seeing and purchasing our product in stores and on shelves,” shared Eric White, Co-Founder and CEO of Miku. “On behalf of the entire Miku family, we could not be more thrilled to work with these leading mainstream retailers.”
The Miku Smart Baby Monitor has historically only been available via its website, after successfully launching to the public at CES in January 2019. Since its debut earlier this year, the brand has been well received by parents and critics alike, having already won The Bump’s “Best Of Baby Awards”, Babylist’s “Best of Babytech Awards”, two CES Innovation Awards for “Tech For A Better World” and “Fitness, Sports and Biotech”, and The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.
“The Miku Smart Baby Monitor brings a whole new level of awareness and safety to the baby monitor market,” added Colt Seman, Miku Co-Founder and CMO. “We’re excited for the opportunity to share this with even more families with our retail expansion.”
The growing number of working parents, nuclear family households and enhanced standard of living has certainly given a new rise to new opportunities for several business segments, especially in innovative baby care products, such as a smart baby monitor. The smart baby monitor market is expected to register a healthy growth across the world.
Miku’s proprietary technology combines multiple sensor modalities with machine learning to track a baby’s breathing and sleep patterns through any clothing, in any position in a crib, and even in total darkness. An embedded Qualcomm processor operates in real time to analyze breathing, sleep, sound, and motion, and alerts parents immediately via a push notification to their mobile device. Miku allows a parent’s awareness to go far beyond what is readily seen and heard, by tracking activity and metrics over time while providing comprehensive insights through the interactive Miku app. The Miku Smart Baby Monitor is available to purchase for 399.00 USD (Rs. 28,328) and 549.99 CAD (Rs. 29,735), with no added subscription fees.
Based in Los Angeles, CA, Miku is a new technology company that brings the Miku Smart Baby Monitor as the first-of-its-kind, combining proprietary SensorFusion technology, Qualcomm processing, and next generation safety features in a sleek, modern design.
