Review: Eight Sleep ‘Pod Pro’ iPhone-Connected Mattress Offers Temperature Controls and Sleep Tracking

A few years ago, Eight Sleep launched its first iPhone-connected mattress called “The Pod.” The central feature of this bed is that it allows you to adjust the temperature of the mattress from your iPhone (or Android smartphone), accomplished through hydro-cooling technology that disperses water through a small grid on the surface of the mattress.

This year, the company updated its original mattress with the launch of the “Pod Pro.” This version, which I’ve been testing for the past month, has a new Comfort Blend foam topper for enhanced contouring and pressure point relief, new ambient sensors that can measure the temperature and humidity of a bedroom to adjust bed temperature, and a few other added features.

According to Eight Sleep, being able to choose whether your bed is cool or warm is a major advantage to achieving quality sleep. Undoubtedly, if you are either a warm or cold sleeper, having the ability to open your ‌iPhone‌ and instantly cool or warm your mattress should be very enticing. As a person who has always slept very hot with barely any covers, I’ve come to appreciate the Pod Pro’s cooling features over the past few weeks, but as with most connected smart products, there are some annoying hiccups with the experience.
