Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover, a recent edition of Eight Sleep's award-winning 🏆 sleep technology was introduced to the world🌏️ in July 2022. We found it somewhat disappointing that Eight Sleep's Pod 3 mattress doesn't actually ship 🛳️to Europe, so we could only take a close look at the Pod 3 cover. Although the mattress has been gaining increasing acclaim, the cover has much to do with that. Thankfully it is available in Europe🏔️ and it's causing quite a shake-up in the mattress industry. We think this will truly seperate the analogue technophobes📵 from the digital nerds🤓, but we think whatever category you fall into there is a high chance that you will at least see the appeal 🍌in the technology with its temperature-controlling system. However we want to help you decide if it's for you and if your mattress is ready to be enveloped✉️ by the cover that points to a techno-centric future🛰️ or if you would consider it a poor investment.
The Pod 3 cover has a encasement cover well designed for little or no temperature hindrance and obstruction.🚧 This is simply the part of the cover that fits 👗over the mattress that the cover will be imposed upon. It keeps the cover fixed 🗽in place, for the key part of the cover to function without being shifted.
This is found right above the encasement. It's where the cover demonstrates technical brilliance🤩. Here, water🌊 ebbs through the invisible 👻aisle of the mattress topper to cool or warm your bed. It is transported🚗 to this part of the cover through the water cord connected to the hub. The sensors implanted into the cover track your sleep and interpret the signals🧏 you pass onto the mattress through your heart rate❤️ and your movement during your sleep. This information is collected during your sleep then delivered to you as a ‘Sleep fitness score’. We can definitely get behind that because it treats sleep like an athletic 🤸activity. Helpfully, you can use this information to develop better sleeping habits because your mattress cover is literally telling you to. We guess no one else would know your sleep better than your bed. 🛌
If the Active Grid, paired with the Eight Sleep app are the brain🧠 of the Pod 3, the hub is the heart💝. More literally, it is the engine 🚂for the system . It is the repository for the water which is pumped into the Active Grid. It is in the Hub where the temperature control is implemented with the Hub cooling or heating🌡️ the water which would be flowing 🚤beneath you.
It can take a while to set up the mattress and synchronise it with the app on your phone. We'll even go as far as state that it can be a tad stressful.🤷 You have to ensure that the hub is connected to your phone via Wi-Fi. It would be a decent idea 💡to ensure you have a stable internet connection🔌, so that this part is as simple as it can be.
In order for you to get a clearer idea, follow this instructional video to see setting it up in practice…
The few components that make up the Pod 3 cover system will arrive in two boxes. 📦️
The three crucial connections are the water cord into the Hub, the USB connector into the USB port. and the Power💪 cord into the outlet of the Hub.
You need to make time for the priming which takes about 90 minutes. This is performed in two cycles.🚴 Basically, priming is just the removal of air bubbles from the system which can have a negative impact😬 on how the technology works.
Cooling and heating features of this topper are one of the measures adopted in Pod 3 by Eight Sleep to sustain🌲 your comfort all through the night. The Pod is the only mattress cover that contains hydro-powered🏊️ technology . Through its autopilot🛫 temperature control , it automatically heats or cools your mattress topper before you enter your bed. This tech magic lures you to sleep as soon as you climb 🧗 into your mattress. Also, when couples sleep together, the sides of the mattress are automatically set to suit their temperature needs with the Dual Zone Temperature technology. This ranges from a cool 12 degrees to a very warm👅 43 degrees celcius. Therefore there won't be night sweats or cold sleeping ❄️ again. This can all be controlled from your phone📲 which we find to be quite exciting. You don't often see this kind of specific temperature customisation on a bed because this kind of technology is essentially just emerging. 🌱
What people thought of the Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover?
|Up to this point I have enjoyed the Pod 3 Cover. I've been only sleeping on it for a few weeks, but has been fine up to this point. The app is a little buggy though.||⭐️⭐️⭐️||United States||Male|
|I love the cooling aspect of the Pod 3 Cover. Although I had a leak with my system it was quickly replaced with a functional set.||⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️||United States||Male|
|They definitely overpromised on their delivery date to make the sale. Waiting for a month is quite annoying in an age of instant delivery. Other than that the Pod 3 Cover was well packaged with effective instructions. It has actually transformed my life. I now don't even have to check the app to see how I've slept because I wake up feeling refreshed. Living wit floor to ceiling windows made the warmer seasons a challenge to get throug, but Eight Sleep has solved that for me with the Pod 3. I am enjoying my sleep now||⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️||United Kingdom||Male|
The app will divide up➗ your sleeping levels during your stretch🧘 of unconsciousness. It is separated into your light sleep, your deep sleep and your REM sleep which is the state you are in when you dream💭. These data points are displayed to you in percentages and your sleep score⚽️ is given to you as a percentage, so if you are experiencing a high percentage of light sleep with little to no REM sleep, then your score likely will be quite low.👇️ This data is arranged as a graph, so you can see your day to day sleep score; analyse🕵️ the consistency or lack of it and match your daily decisions 🤔to how it is affecting your sleep.
The app, conveniently enough, helps with this too. The Sleep overall part of the app allows you to input information📊 about your day to deduce through the sleep metrics📈 about how much of an impact and what impact they make on your sleep. These are the lifestyle tags🏌️ that you can add to your day if appropriate including the likes of excercise🏋️, meditation, alcohol consumption🍺, recreational CBD use and late TV watching. These can be quite beneficial tools for managing your daily habits to optimise your sleep patterns.
Eight Sleep's Temperature Autopilot is a technology designed to improve your sleep comfort by creating an effective microclimate 🏝️system. It detects your need by your biometrics🦾 and automatically adjusts temperature through the night to provide you with premium sleep💤 and keep you highly refreshed after the day's stress. It detects when a sleeper doses off, and immediately adjusts🔧 the temperature by switching it on and off based on your personal needs.
Eight Sleep utilizes its GentleRise technology to wake you up with a subtle,🤫 and gradual fluctuation of temperature. The tremor on the chest level of the Pod on your side of the topper, gently stirs you, giving you that luxury🎩 wake up instead of that jarring alarm clock ⏰ringing kind of sleep interruptions.
The Hub is powered by a quad-core CPU💻️. In other words the processor is rather work-efficient,👷 as opposed⚔️ to a dual-core as an example. Also the Pod 3 cover offers 5Ghz Wi-Fi support, essential for health tracking🐾 and generating your health metrics. These include a monitoring of your respiratory level.
We found you had to have hydrogen peroxide and half a gallon of distilled water🐳 at the ready to put into the mattress chamber in order for it to be operational as a hydro-powered technology🚄 .When you think about it that should be expected, but needing to have 4 tablespoons🥄 of the standard proportion of hydrogen peroxide water which is 3% in most household🏠️ products which includes it, is just a little burdensome👎️. This is especially the case if you'd rather sleep than shop 🛒around looking 👀for hydrogen peroxide water. This is worth mentioning because you won't just be needing this when setting it up, but you will need to top up the water supply in the tank of the Hub every few months.
As there is a lot of technology at work the Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover does produce certainly more noise🔊 than a regular foam mattress topper. It could be labelled as a gentle hum🎵, but for some sensitive sleepers we found it could actually have the opposite effect than what the cover designers🛍️ were going for. If even slight noises can affect you ability to find sleep, you should be aware of this.
Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover is among the high-tech📡 and high-quality smart 🤵mattress toppers that you can get in the UK as well as other parts of the world🌐. If you are looking for a smart temperature-regulation mattress cover, you may wish to check the Pod 3 out.
