Snuza Pico is the next generation wearable smart monitor for babies. Monitor your baby's abdominal movement, temperature and body position from your smart phone or tablet. Snuza PICO is 40% smaller than the Snuza HERO, and vibrates after 15 seconds of no movement in an effort to rouse your baby to resume abdominal movement. This is then followed by a loud alarm if a further 5 seconds passes with no abdominal movement. The Snuza Pico app allows for real-time view of all the parameters being measured - Abdominal Movement Rate, Skin Temperature, Body Position and even Fall Detection if your baby takes a tumble! The Snuza Pico can pick up external movements and it is therefore not suitable for co-sleeping babies or when bed-sharing. It is advisable not to use the Snuza Pico when the baby is in motion, e.g. in a car seat or a stroller. App - Available for iOS and Android.
Why is the temperature not accurate
when I first put the Snuza Pico on?
When you first put the Pico
on, it is slightly colder than your baby and tends to reduce the
temperature of the skin around the Pico. Leave the Pico on the baby for
10 – 15 minutes in order to limit this effect.
Why is the Snuza Pico not staying
connected to the phone and what can I do about it?
Bluetooth Low Energy technology has limited range but you can do some
simple things to improve this:
- Don’t mount the Pico where the baby is likely
to lie on-top of it or huddle up around it. The best place for the best
connection is in the middle of your baby’s tummy.
- Don’t have your phone in your pocket. Rather
place it on a non-conductive surface.
- Try limit the number of obstacles between the
Pico and phone, especially metal obstacles.
- If you are using 2.4 GHz WiFi it can cause
interference. Rather use 5 GHz WiFi if you are able to.
Why am I getting false breathing alarms?
The Pico is designed to sense abdominal movement and so if there
is no movement detected it will alarm. To avoid false alarms ensure you
have attached Pico firmly to the nappy as indicated in the Quick Start
Guide and place the Pico where the baby will not lie on the device.

feeding or changing the baby!
There is a pause function on the Pico that can be activated from the
smart phone or by un-clipping the Pico and briefly pressing the power
Can the app be loaded onto multiple
phones to simultaneously pair with one Snuza Pico?
The app can be loaded onto multiple phones but only one phone can be
connected to the Snuza Pico at a time.
Can multiple Snuza Pico’s be monitored
from the same phone?
Yes, up to a maximum of three Snuza Pico’s can be connected to one
smart phone or tablet.

First make sure that the top lever is seated correctly, then ensure
that the thin flap of the diaper is folded over the ticker part, which
is what the clip grips on to.
The Clip is very loose and not seated
The clip is designed to be replaceable and will unseat if moved more
than 60 degrees past the closed position. There is a friction stop at
60 degrees, but with a little force, it can be moved beyond this. To
re-seat the clip. please follow this How To video:
The ‘tick’ functionality has gone.
The firmware is continuously being improved to make the product better.
As part of this process, a new breathing detection algorithm was
developed which is vastly more effective than before. The downside is
that the ‘tick’ functionality has temporarily been removed while we
work on making it compatible with the new improved algorithm.
Read the basic tips for using your Snuza Pico smart wearable movement
Snuza Pico is a mobile movement monitor so the non-contact sensor must
always be in contact with the baby’s tummy. The non-contact sensor
however will still detect movement if it loses contact with the tummy
for a few seconds.
To prevent unnecessary false alarms caused by SnuzaŽ Pico being out of
range of abdominal movement:
- Use the correct size diaper. Diapers that are
too big will loosen around the waistband and the Pico will not be
- Fold the waistband or top edge of the diaper
over to create a double-fold, giving Pico a firm grip on the diaper.
- Adjust the adhesive tapes so that there is a
snug fit around the tummy.
- Make sure that Pico is firmly and fully
clipped onto the folded waistband.
- Make sure that the non-contact sensor is
position towards the baby’s tummy and in contact with the baby.
Please note: Snuza abdominal movement monitors detect the slightest
movement, including movement from external sources such as when
travelling in a vehicle, pushing a pram, etc. SnuzaŽ Pico should only
be relied upon when there is no external movement present, i.e. when
the vehicle, pram, carry cot, etc. is stationery.
Tips for attaching the Snuza Pico
Attaching the SnuzaŽ Pico to clothing
- If you find that the Snuza Pico is coming loose once baby starts
moving around, we suggest a snug-fitting Carter’s onesie and pants set.
- Another option is to use a safety pin – insert it through the
material and through the back of the clip – the clip is designed in
such a way that this is possible. It won’t come off until you remove
the safety pin. This is only recommended before the diaper goes on so
that there’s no risk of hurting baby.
- Pico is also a clip-on baby monitor and can be
clipped onto the waistband of elasticated pants, as long as the sensor
maintains contact with the baby’s tummy area.
- There may also be a thin layer of clothing
(e.g. a vest) between the sensor and the skin, but ensure that the
sensor maintains contact.
- The monitor can also be used if baby is
dressed in light clothing (for example, a onesie) over the diaper or
pants to which the Pico is attached.
- Too much clothing may attenuate or muffle the
alarm. Make sure the alarm can be heard if baby is covered in clothing
If you follow these guidelines properly, you can rest assured that
baby’s every movement is being monitored.

The Snuza Pico makes use of a rechargeable battery and is a sealed unit.
To charge the Pico, place it in the USB charging station (Supplied with
the Pico) for 2 hours.
