Revolutionizing How We Sleep

Sleep is hugely important to our overall health but can be elusive. This product makes it easy to improve sleep quality— even for co-sleepers.

Sleep quality and quantity have been shown to decline with age, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Smart sleep mattresses are changing the game with temperature control, data tracking, and personalizable routines.

Although we spend about ⅓ of our lives sleeping, we live in a time of chronic sleep deprivation. The average American’s nightly sleep has fallen by almost an hour since 1942, leading to massive health and social issues like elevated stress levels, insomnia, and exhaustion. We need to look for a solution. Eight Sleep is a company that has one. This is a technology-driven smart sleep brand specializing in advanced sleep products. Eight Sleep has set out to restore individuals to their peak energy levels every day by improving the restfulness and recovery potential of their sleep. Founded in 2014 by a team dedicated to using the best technology to improve rest quality and overall health, the brand now has committed customers all over the world.

Eight Sleep pod smart sleep product revolutionizing how we sleep with intuitive temperature control

What are the Eight Sleep Pod & Pod Cover?

The Eight Sleep Pod is a smart, temperature-controlling mattress and bed cover combo that uses advanced sensors and machine learning algorithms to optimize sleep. The Pod is designed to track and analyze important user sleep metrics, such as heart rate, respiratory rate, and sleep cycles. It then uses that data to automatically adjust your bed’s temperature and create an ideal sleep environment. Plus, all Pod products have specialized left and right zones to accommodate two sleepers simultaneously, revolutionizing sleep for couples as well.

Their Pod Cover comes in a variety of sizes and can be easily installed on top of any existing mattress. It is designed to be durable and easy to clean, with a machine-washable cover and water-resistant sensors. Additionally, the company offers a range of accessories, such as pillows and sheets, strategically designed to enhance sleep comfort and quality. Eight Sleep offers a high-tech solution that can change your whole outlook on sleep by providing personalized insights and optimizing your nighttime environment. This is a winner.

For those like us who are obsessed with tracking their health stats, the Eight Sleep Pod measures heart rate and heart rate variability (two key metrics for understanding recovery) while you sleep, with 99% accuracy. No wearable required. In fact, the HR algorithm was validated against a gold-standard electrocardiogram (ECG) device on more than 100 nights of data, comprising over 46,000 minutes of sleep. It also includes a warming feature that can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. No more waking up in the middle of the night to find another blanket!

Eight Sleep uses data-driven insights and cutting-edge technology to help people improve their sleep and overall health. In addition to the sleep tracking and temperature management, their products can also connect to other smart home devices, such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home, which allows you to control your bed with your voice. And, their mobile app provides personalized insights and sleep coaching to help you improve your sleep habits over time. The company has received numerous accolades for its innovative products and is featured in publications such as Forbes, Wired, and The New York Times. Furthermore, we are blown away by the quality of these products and, of course, the resulting improvements to our daily life. 

Bottom line: this brand is a leader in the smart sleep technology industry, offering advanced mattress solutions designed to help people achieve better sleep and optimal health where it counts.
