Eight Mattress Review

Eight Mattress Review – Smart Bed: Ranked #1 for easy to maintain. (Click here to see all the ANS Best Mattress Award Winners)

Super impressive technology! The Smart technology that now comes with every Eight Mattress tracks over a dozen items. These items include light and deep sleep, bed and wake time, hours slept, heart rate, respiratory rate, tosses and turns, sleep breaks, time sleeping, air temperature, humidity, noise levels, and bed temperature. Sleepers can then use this data to improve their sleep.

The Smart Bed also offers fantastic comfort and support. It offers three layers of premium foams, is 10″ thick, and is medium-firm. It gives a good amount of pressure relief and conforms well to a sleeper’s body. In creating this mattress, comfort was a major consideration. According to the Company, they tested over 300 comfort combinations to identify the perfect support for spine and hip alignment.

The bottom layer of the Smart Bed provides great support for sleepers. The transition foam aids in proper weight distribution and serves as a transitional layer between the comfort layers and the bottom base layers. The base layer is designed and constructed with durable support foam and gives the sleeper a sturdy foundation for maximum compression relief. Moreover, finding the dynamic between comfort and support is very important to the Company. 

In addition to its great comfort and support, and incredible technology, Eight also offers other huge positives.  Its mattresses have dual zone warming options and have covers that are easy to handle and wash. Additionally, Eight Sleep has strong ratings in the other essential categories including value, durability, and coolness.  Its mattresses also rate well with other attributes including little motion transfer, just the right amount of sinkage, very good edge support, and limited off-gassing.

Top 20 ConsiderationsRatingDetail
Essentials:
1Good Value?95.75%The Smart Bed has the comfort, support, durability, and even the affordability of comparable on-line mattresses, but also has the Smart Technology. While this mattress is excellently priced, it has a cover that contains the sleep technology that people crave. This technology includes sleep tracking, temperature control, the Smart alarm, and IoT and Wi-fi integrations. This Smart Technology that has taken the mattress industry by storm, could have commanded a much higher, premium price. But instead the Smart Bed is sold at a reasonable price point.
2Comfortable?95.58%The Smart Bed offers three layers of premium foams, is 10″ thick, and is medium-firm. It gives a good amount of pressure relief and conforms well to a sleeper’s body. In creating this mattress, comfort was a major consideration. According to the Company, they tested over 300 comfort combinations to identify the perfect support for spine and hip alignment.
3Supportive?95.46%The bottom layer of the Smart Bed provides sufficient support for sleepers. The transition foam aids in proper weight distribution and serves as a transitional layer between the comfort layers and the bottom base layers. The base layer is designed and constructed with durable support foam and gives the sleeper a sturdy foundation for maximum compression relief. Moreover, finding the dynamic between comfort and support is very important to the Company. As stated previously, they tested over 300 comfort combinations to identify the perfect support for spine and hip alignment.
4Durable / Quality Built?95.55%
The quality of the Eight mattresses is not only seen in the durability of its foams and springs, but more evidently in its amazing technology. Developed with more than 200 billion data points and 10 million hours of sleep analyzed, this Smart Technology is incredible. Controlled from their smart phones, individuals can (1) track their sleep (including light and deep sleep, bed and wake time, hours slept, heart rate, respiratory rate, tosses and turns, sleep breaks, time sleeping, temperature, humidity, and noise levels), (2) warm up their beds and rooms (one side or both), (3) connect their mattresses with their smart home (including turning off lights, locking doors, brewing coffee, and setting a wake up time), and (4) use the Smart alarm (wake the sleeper up when they are in light sleep and can more easily be awaken). The quality and durability of these mattresses is backed up with a 10 year warranty on the mattress and a one year warranty on the technology. The ten years on mattresses is standard for on-line mattresses. The one year on the technology seems short, but is in line with technological devices including smart phones, laptops, and tablets.
5Sleep Cool?94.30%Many features of the Eight mattress are designed to keep sleepers cool so they can have an Awesome Night Sleep. The 100% polyester cover is not only soft, durable, and washable, but it is also thin, breathable, and allows great air flow. The top layer of reactive or responsive foam is a specialty polyfoam that is like latex in that it is breathable and dissipates heat. Additionally, with this incredible mattress, Smart Technology gives sleepers the ability to heat up the mattress or cool down the bedroom. For the ability to cool down the mattress, see The Pod, also from Eight Sleep – The Pod by Eight Sleep is the most advanced sleep system ever built, enabling active cooling and heating, sleep tracking, and smart home connectivity — reserve yours today!“>The Pod
6Warranty? 94.33%10 year limited warranty on foam and 1 year limited warranty on technology for only the original purchaser.
7Return Policy?95.56%Any Eight Mattress can be returned within 100 days of the delivery date without shipping charges. The mattress can be returned alone, the Smart Technology can be returned alone, or both can be returned together. Purchasers might have to drop products off for donation or disposal to receive refunds. Purchasers do not have to wait a set amount of days before making a return.
Company:
8Customer Service?94.66%Eight does not emphasize customer service on their website the way other companies do. Eight also has not been around very long to build up a good reputation in this area. Still, all indications show that they are doing well in this capacity.
9Good Reputation?95.56%Eight has a strong reputation as a technology company. Highly driven by data and science, they believe that technology can measure, understand, and optimize the way people sleep for the ultimate goal of a healthy and happier life. Their Smart Technology, that comes now with the purchase of every mattress, is now the leading sleep innovation in the industry. With the ability to help people get an Awesome Night Sleep through sleep tracking, dual-zone temperature control, the Smart alarm, and IoT and Wi-fi integrations, the Eight mattresses are the future. Even though they do not have a BBB rating, the Company has high owner satisfaction ratings.
10Socially Good?91.81%All foams used are CertiPUR-US® certified. Eight’s mattresses have passed the required flame tests and contain Silica Murtzco yarn, an environmentally friendly fire retardant barrier that fully complies with safety laws. Their Smart Technology has passed the required certifications for consumer electronics products. Returned mattresses are donated to local charities when possible.
Attributes:
11Motion Transfer / No Sinkage?94.17%The responsive / reactive top layer of foam for this mattress strikes a good balance between preventing motion transfer and not engulfing sleepers in the bed. While not as impressive as memory foam at keeping one sleeper’s movements from impacting the other, the top layer of polyfoam is adequate for isolating motion. Conversely, far more impressive than memory foam, Eight’s top foam layer is much more responsive and prevents sleepers from sinking down too far into the mattress.
12Edge Support?92.73%Consisting entirely of foam, Eight’s Smart Bed mattresses have about average edge support. No special features have been constructed to provide enhancements in this area.
13Bouncy?95.10%The top layer of reactive poly foam gives Eight mattresses some bounce.
14Noisy?96.23%As entirely foam mattresses, the Smart Bed is completely quiet.
15Off-Gassing?95.33%A minimal amount of off-gassing is possible when these mattresses are unboxed. This is normal. The unpleasant odor will dissipate within a few hours, and completely be gone in a couple of days.
16Easy to Handle / Break In / Maintain?96.22%Installing the Smart Technology and setting up the bed is hassle free. The Smart Bed can be used immediately after unboxing and decompression. Sleepers, however, should allow a full 24 hours if they want the mattress to fully form and a couple of days longer for it to adapt to their bodies. No further break-in period is needed. The mattresses should not be flipped, but should be rotated from head to toe every 3 months. Handles on the side make for easy rotation. The top layer of the cover can be unzipped and washed, but the bottom layer of the cover, where all the electronics are placed, should not be.
Sleeper Type:
17Good for Backs?95.82%The Smart Bed mattress helps provide decent spinal alignment and back support. However, being firmer, the Saturn is a better choice for reducing back pain and other body pain. Back sleepers, desiring a mattress that is more medium to firm, will also enjoy the Smart Bed. They will like the even distribution, the quality support, and lack of sinkage.
18Good for Side Sleep?95.27%Side sleepers, being partial to medium to soft mattresses, will appreciate the Smart Bed because of its contouring, pressure point relief, and overall support.
19Good for Stomach Sleep?94.33%Stomach sleepers will value the firm to medium feel of the Smart Bed. These sleepers will welcome the mattresses’ combination of foam layers, the pressure point relief, and conformity.
20Good for Larger Sleepers?95.37%For adequate support, larger people often desire mattresses that are thicker, firmer, heavier, and have denser foam. The Smart Bed is pretty heavy at about 85 pounds. It is 10″ thick and firm. It is unclear how dense this mattress is. With these mixed results, it is an open question on whether larger people will enjoy the Eight mattresses.
