Eight Sleep Mattress Pad Review

Eight Sleep Mattress Pad Review

I just bought my first heated mattress pad a couple of years ago and I have to say that it’s the best purchase I’ve ever made for my bedroom… ever. My husband gets too hot if I pile too many blankets on the bed, so the mattress pad allowing me to adjust the temperature only on my side is fantastic.

But, when I saw the Eight Sleep smart mattress pad, I knew I was looking at another game changer for my room. At this point, I’m not sure it gets any better.

What Metrics Do Eight Sleep Track?

The following is a list of things that your Eight Sleep smart mattress pad will track for you on a daily basis:

  • Temperature in bed
  • When you fall asleep
  • When you wake up
  • What time you actually got OUT of bed
  • How many hours you slept
  • How much you tossed and turned
  • Your breathing rate
  • Your heart rate
  • Room temperature
  • Room Humidity
  • How much noise was in your room
  • What the light level in the room was
  • Local weather forecast

When Eight Sleep puts all of this information together into its system and calculates all of it, it spits out your Sleep Score. This lets you know under what conditions you sleep the best.

It can also personalize your bed’s climate! If you have a smart thermostat, it can connect to it and adjust your home’s temperature to something that coincides with your best sleeping conditions. It’s also possible to adjust between setting your temperature manually and letting the app do it for you.

The Ultimate Sleep Tracker

Forget about other sleep trackers that you have to wear on your wrist or remember to charge every day for them to work. Forget about losing it or accidentally washing it with the rest of your clothes.

Those days are over.

Eight Sleep tracks more data than any other sleep tracker currently available on the market and deals with it in a way that no other sleep tracker currently can do. It’s just downright revolutionary.

It Connects To Your Smart Stuff!

When you look at the Eight Sleep mattress pad, it looks just like a normal mattress pad that you might buy at Wal-Mart. Sure, it looks a little higher quality, but it’s not until you look at it from the left side where the power and control plugs in.This is what sends all of the information to your smartphone and to your other smart devices in your home.

The App That Makes This Bad Boy Tick

The Eight Sleep app is available for iOS and Android and it connects with other fitness trackers such as Google Fit or Apple HealthKit. This helps you figure out what helps you sleep best and no matter what you’re doing throughout the day, Eight Sleep knows from the data what to suggest.

Ah, But The Cost... It Has To Be Astronomical... Right..?

The price isn’t exactly cheap, but it’s not exactly shocking, either. It’s about what you would expect to pay for such a high quality item with the ability to record and give you feedback on all of these different data point.

The most you’ll end up paying for an Eight Sleep mattress pad is $369 and that’s for the King and California King sizes. The full and queen sizes are both $349.

If that sounds like a lot of money to you, consider what you spent $350 on last. My guess is that maybe it was a TV? Or perhaps some other home appliance that you thought would make your life much easier and simpler?

Trust me, if you can justify buying a new TV at any point at all, you can justify getting an Eight Sleep mattress pad. You’ll sleep better and be more productive during the day because of that. Quality of life is nothing to sneeze at!

Is There Anything Else Like It?

indiegogoThe short answer? No!

It took $1.5 million dollars and 7,000 backers on IndieGoGo to get this product developed. There’s no doubt that this is a totally unique product.

There is currently no other product on the market that offers what Eight Sleep has to offer you. It’s the only smart mattress pad currently available anywhere and they’ve definitely set the bar high for any potential competitors down the road.

What Do I Love About Eight Sleep?

I honestly can’t think of anything about this product that isn’t lovable after having used it for a solid month now. It’s truly remarkable in all aspects and works just as it was described to. My go to bed and wake up times were just what they were supposed to be (I made sure to write these down every night before bed and upon waking up, just so I didn’t forget what time I did them!).  The heating easily turns on and off with the app on my phone and since my husband and I sleep at opposite ends of the temperature spectrum quite often, it helps a lot with making sure we both get a good night’s sleep.

The connection to my home’s WiFi was also simple and worked on the first attempt.

I also enjoy the fact that the bed preheats itself automatically if that’s what I want it to do, so I never have to crawl under cold sheets.

Not only does it do what it was said to, but the company comes out with new features regularly.
