Let’s just say it, quality sleep is essential to a good life. Nothing goes well if you don’t get enough shut-eye. Being an incredibly light sleeper, I’ve always struggled with sleep issues. The slightest change in temperature can wake me up and then I tend to toss and turn trying to get comfy and fall back to sleep.
Initially, I thought it was because of my creaky old mattress, so I upgraded to memory foam that improved my sleep a bit, but not enough for me.
After a bit of research, I suspected it could be because I get super hot while I sleep. My partner was miserable too and suggested we look into a smart mattress. But buying another new mattress could be a complete waste of our money.
We were searching for alternatives when a friend suggested we check out Eight Sleep, a company known for high-performing smart mattresses that have innovative, dual-zone cooling and heating technology.
Lucky for us, Eight Sleep just launched the Pod 3, an intelligent mattress that has many new features and a Pod 3 cover. The cover offers dual-zone heating and cooling technology so you can set the temperature for each side of the bed between 55°F - 110°F. Plus, there are Personalized Health Reports that zip seamlessly onto the mattress. It sounded like a big win, so I ordered one immediately at the current cost of $2,220 — cheaper than buying a new mattress.
Once our Pod 3 cover arrived, I was thrilled that it fit perfectly on my 11” queen mattress. So easy! We were so excited to give it a try.
Eight Sleep’s latest Invisible Sensing has 4000x sensor resolution that supports sleep tracking and advanced health. The dual-zone cooling and heating is fantastic — I simply let the app control my temperature for optimal sleep. It’s incredible. I couldn’t believe that I woke up the next morning, fully rested. I’d slept peacefully without the AC on all night. My partner can also control the temperature on his side of the bed, so he’s sleeping like a baby, too.
The second aspect that blew our minds is how well we can track our sleep and the eye-opening data on how sleep quality can affect our overall health. Through the Eight Sleep app, we can see personalized reports, including Respiratory Rate, Resting Heart Rate, and HRV. We’ll receive a notification if anything’s abnormal.
I am so in love with the Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover because it uses gentle vibrations at the chest level so it wakes me up naturally. It also shifts the temperature at my set wake-up time, making it easier for me to rise and truly shine. The app also has a library of sleep sounds and meditations designed to promote sleep.
Even since we laid the Eight Sleep Pod 3 cover over our existing mattress, our sleep has greatly improved. I’ve been getting between 7-8 hours of sleep every night — something I could only dream of with our lumpy old mattress.
I can confidently say that a good night’s sleep can have a marvelous effect on your entire life. I'm less tired during the day, far more productive and can pretty much fall asleep the minute my head hits the pillow.
If you’re struggling with your sleep health but don’t want to invest in a whole new mattress, give Eight Sleep’s new Pod 3 cover a try!
