6 Reasons Why You Need The Pod Pro In Your Life

Buying a new mattress is a big deal for me. It's a purchase that I had to research and take my time with, but also had to be really excited about! I wasn't sure if I'd find a mattress that could actually make me part with my hard-earned money.

One brand that kept coming up, over and over again, was Eight Sleep's Pod Pro mattress. This smart mattress has advanced cooling and heating technology, and a bunch of other incredible benefits. Though temperature control is super important to me, I looked into several different mattresses comparing price, comfort, and delivery.

Eight Sleep's Pod Pro still came out as #1 for being more than just a mattress. Here are 6 reasons why the Pod Pro is the holy grail of mattresses.

1. You can buy a bed without 100% commitment.

While shopping has migrated online, most think that you still need to go lay on every mattress in a store to choose the right one. I was one of those people until I found Eight Sleep.

They ship your Pod Pro right to your door and give you a 100-night trial period. Honestly, I was sold after the first few nights, but they do have full refunds within 100 days from delivery.

2. The Pod Pro takes comfort to a new level.

I never knew how comfortable a mattress could be until I tried the Pod Pro. It's made with five layers of premium foam, and I immediately felt a difference after one night of restful sleep. The top layer, called the Comfort Blend, combines with the other four others to create amazing contouring support. Basically, it supports you in all the right places.

Plus, I didn't need a custom foundation and put the Pod Pro right on my old bed frame.

3. Stay cool or cozy all night.

I tend to run hot. I've been dreaming of a cooling mattress that could help me get the quality sleep I desperately need and the Pod Pro has amazing dual-zone cooling and heating capabilities which range from 55F to 110F.

Since I could set both sides at different temperatures, I got to sleep at a cool 55F while my partner stayed cozy at 70F. It was great not having to blast the AC or play tug-of-war with the covers.

The Pod Pro also has sensors that measure room temperature, humidity, and local weather. It takes that information as well as your movements to automatically adjust the temperature on either side of the bed during the night.

4. It's a Smart mattress in more ways than one.

There's so much tech in this mattress, it's the "Tesla of beds." I thought the temperature aspect would be as special as a mattress could get, but I was wrong.

If you're like me, waking up to a blaring alarm after a restless night is a real struggle. The Pod Pro allows you to set a wake-up time and it's GentleRise Technology uses gentle vibrations at chest level to wake you up. It also slowly cools or warms the bed minutes before waking you up, giving you the most blissful wake-up of your life. The best part is that my partner and I can set different alarms and not disturb each other.

5. Everything is in your control.

The Eight Sleep app really ties the Pod Pro experience together.

The sensors in the bed also monitor your Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Resting Heart Rate, Sleep Stages, and Sleep Time. I can track my body's recovery in the app as well as get daily health checks - taking my understanding of sleep to a whole new level.

I'm loving the app aspect of the Pod Pro, which I didn't even know was a possibility. My partner and I are so competitive and now we can even compare sleep stats!

6. The return on investment is off the charts.

A mattress is a huge investment, but the Pod Pro is definitely where you want to spend your money. I ended up purchasing the Queen size Pod Pro and financed it for $84/month.

The Pod Pro's features are incomparable and the way it's improved my sleep has drastically improved my days as well. I think of the monthly payment the same way I think of a gym membership - sleep fitness comes with a price but it's totally worth it.

Overall, Eight Sleep's Pod Pro is an incredible mattress and now I can't imagine life without it!
