Eight Pod

New Eight Sleep Mattress Adjusts to Your Body Temperature

By | Mattress, Sleep Industry News | No Comments

Eight Mattress is already the most high tech mattress we know. Today they announced a new mattress that will automatically adjust to your body temperature. It’s called the Eight Sleep Pod. It’s not a nap pod or something that encloses over you. This high tech mattress uses liquid embedded into the layers to regulate the temperature.

We haven’t seen anything like it!

The company says they used 43 million hours of sleep data, insights from over 30,000 sleepers and says they collaborated with 5 leading sleep researchers to come up with the Pod.

Unbox Mattress may earn a commission on your purchase of a Pod.

Eight Sleep Pod

Pod tracks your sleep and learns the right temperature for you. Features personalized temperature regulation on each side of the bed. Temperatures can range between 55° and 115°F so it’s ideal for any climate.

The Pod is the only bed that dynamically adjusts its temperature to be perfect for you all night long. It monitors your sleep patterns, learns your temperature preferences and cools and heats to keep you comfortable.

There are sensors in the 4 layers of foam and it’s a liquid based thermoelectric system.

During the night the bed keeps you at thermoneutral or to your settings. Best of all, if you sleep with someone, both the dynamic temperature and biometric tracking work independently for each side of the bed. That means one side can be cooled (for example, if she has menopausal symptoms such as night sweats) and the other side could be neutral (so he doesn’t freeze while she tries to stay comfortable).

In addition to helping you sleep by getting the temperature just right, the Pod can act as a thermo alarm to wake you up gradually and naturally, without the sound of an alarm. It gradually cools the bed in the morning and can adjust the temperature to help you fall asleep at night.

All smart mattresses Eight sells come with an app to track:

– Sleep Stages
– Heart Rate
– Respiration

Eight uses the data to give you tips to help improve your sleep.

Connects to your smart home through Amazon Echo, Google Home, Nest, and Philips Hue.

Ghostbed pillow top mattress

GhostBed Goes High End with New Flex Hybrid Mattress

By | Mattress, Sleep Industry News | No Comments

GhostBed has a new mattress in their line of memory foam beds. The GhostBed Flex hybrid mattress is a luxurious 13-inch deep mattress with 7 layers, including memory foam, foam and coils. Flex is GhostBed’s third mattress and joins the original GhostBed and GhostBed Luxe.

The GhostBed Flex features a pillow top, is softer than the other two options and is the only bed they sell that has coils. Both the Flex and Luxe are 13-inches deep.

It’s difficult to keep the two models straight, because you’d think the softer, higher end model would be called Luxe, but it’s the Flex.

Firmness

The Flex is the most plush mattress GhostBed offers and comes in between a 4-5 on a 1-10 scale (with 1 being a marshmallow and 10 being cement).

Cost

At the time of writing, a queen Flex Hybrid is $1485, which is $210 above the Luxe.

Read the Amazon Reviews

Layers

GhostBed Flex has 7 layers, including 8 1/2” tall individual coils for support.

1. Cooling Topper – GhostBed Flex’s top layer with advanced cooling technology.

2. 1” of Cooling Fiber – A layer of cooling comfort is woven into topper to aid airflow.

3. 1” of Gel Memory Foam

4. 1″ of another type of Gel Memory Foam

5. 1″ of Transition Foam

6. Individually Wrapped & Reinforced 8 1/2” Support Coils

7. 1″ High-Density Support Foam

GhostBed, GhostBed Luxe, and GhostBed Flex are made without ozone depleters; formaldehyde; PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants; mercury, lead, and other heavy metals; and phthalates. GhostBed products are low VOC emissions for indoor air quality.

Sleep Trial

GhostBed features a 101-night sleep trial. If not completely satisfied, GhostBed will arrange for the return and give a full refund.

Saatva to Debut Super Bowl Ad to Guide you to Sleep Heaven

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

Saatva, an affordable luxury mattress brand, is airing their first Super Bowl commercial. The lighthearted commercial pokes fun at traditional mattress shopping gimmicks and focuses on sleep enlightenment.

It begins with a couple who types, “best mattress” into a search engine. Immediately a real guide appears who takes them on a journey to show them all of the frightening scenes depicting their various options.

“This is enlightenment?,” the woman asks after they stop at a floor where online coupons and sales are being pitched by unscrupulous-looking mattress reviewers. “No, these are search results, the bellhop says. “You can get lost in here real quick if you don’t know what you’re looking for.”

Though the ad has been on YouTube since September, a clip from it is airing during the 2019 Super Bowl. The ad already has over 9 million views.

Note: we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

Saatva Super Bowl Ad

Is this the first online brand to air a Super Bowl ad? Here’s an extended version of Saatva’s fun ad…watch for the actual ad during the game.

In the video, hotel bellhop is a “Sleep Guide” who helps people navigate the chaos of buying a mattress online. They stop at a mattress store too (it’s pretty funny). At the end they get to “mattress buying nirvana,” which looks like a fun beach vacation but the beach has mattresses instead of lounge chairs.

They are also giving away 5 luxury sleep sanctuaries (read: a suite of Saatva products). Learn more about that below.

 

Saatva Giveaway

Saatva is giving away a luxury sleep sanctuary to five lucky winners as part of their promotion. The sanctuary’s value is at over $2,000.

Winners get a Saatva luxury innerspring mattress (any size), a Saatva Dreams luxury organic cotton sheet set, and a Saatva Dreams pillow.

Destination Mattress Heaven

One thing that sets Saatva apart from other online mattresses is they offer free white glove delivery and free mattress removal of your old mattress.

When it comes to ordering a mattress online, Saatva gives you a lot of choices. Choose from 3 comfort levels – a plush pillow top (a 3/10 on firmness), a middle (5-6), and a firm mattresses (8/10). You can also choose between 11.5″ or 14.5″ deep.

The queen 11.5″ is just over $1,000 – affordable as claimed. Though the process is a bit cumbersome compared to other mattress companies (not heaven), they have several options to choose from and are known for their excellent customer service. Check prices here.

Layla Mattress Has a New Modern Look

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

It’s a new year and a new look for Layla mattress. There are a lot of changes so keep reading to see what’s changed. What HASN’T changed is the mattress itself (inside).

Just to recap what makes Layla unique:

  • Flippable 2-sided mattress with a soft and a more firm side
  • Copper infused foam that emphasizes pain relief

Note: we may make a commission if you shop through our links.

New Layla Sleep Logo and Colors

New Look Emphasizes Being Awake Rather than Being Asleep

Layla’s new brand has launched with new colors which include variations of orange, light grey, and green. The brand wants to make you think of being your best awake self with more energy. So goodbye purple color scheme and hello  brighter colors.

Rather than a focus on sleep, Layla wants to shift their focus to being more AWAKE. For example, how to be a better person awake and perform better during the day.

Here’s the new Layla logo.

new Layla mattress

The website has been redesigned to reflect the new look.

New Mattress Cover and Mattress Design

Goodbye diamond/cube shaped patterns, hello hexagons! Layla is using hexagons as our primary design pattern across all their products for an updated look. We think it looks sportier.

new Layla mattress

The biggest change is the mattress cover. Layla has updated the cover on all their products but with the mattress cover, it’s labeled to make it much easier to identify the soft and firm side of the mattress.

In addition Layla has a proprietary “softening” process in their fabric that makes their covers much softer than other brands.

The Layla Pillow is Now Adjustable!

We love the Layla pillow, it’s one of our top picks. But it’s even better because Layla pillows now have a zipper so you can easily remove and add fill in order to customize the feel and loft. Hooray – we love adjustable pillows!

The box reflects the new look along with all of the packaging.

And Layla has improved the unboxing experience. Now the box comes with more than just a mattress. You’ll also get a welcome box, filled with goodies including a Layla drawstring bag, Layla T-Shirt, a plastic wrapper opener, brochures, instructional cards, and stickers.

Donate Mattress Utah – New Charity Takes Mattress Returns

By | Sleep Industry News | 2 Comments

Donate Mattress Utah

Mattress donation UtahUPDATE: Adopt a Bed will arrange pickup in most states through our partner who donates. Fill out the form and someone will contact you to arrange.

Ever tried to donate a mattress in Utah? Good luck! Most charities (like Goodwill, Deseret Industries, and Salvation Army) won’t accept a used mattress. Some are on a case by case basis.

Case in point. The International Rescue Committee lists items refugees need in Utah. In their list of items not accepted? Mattresses.

Charity Mattress Return

Adopt a Bed, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is an official Utah charity that accepts mattress donations. Returns may be for beds that are within their trial period so you can get your refund. Or, they must be 2 years old or newer for a tax receipt (for your personal taxes).

You can drop off your mattress by appointment at their location on 3300 S in Salt Lake City OR call to arrange a pickup by filling out their form online and they’ll come and pick up your mattress.

In most cases, your bed must be 1 year old or in new condition.

You can donate a mattress in Provo (Utah County), St. George, Ogden, Salt Lake and more.

Drop off your bed at

Adopt a Bed
583 W Billinis Rd #1
South Salt Lake, UT 84115

Call to arrange: 385-333-6692 or Go here and fill out the form to request a pickup of your mattress.

If you have a mattress return from a boxed brand, you know it’s like new. You’d like to see it go to a good cause. After all, it’s usually only 100 days old or less. To get a full refund on most boxed mattresses you need to select how it will be returned. These are mattresses you bought online and now need a receipt in order to get your refund. Adopt a Bed can accept mattresses one year old or newer.

They accept most brands that you buy online, including Purple mattress, mattresses purchased on Amazon, Nectar, Dreamcloud, Casper, Ghostbed, Voila, Avocado, Lull, Brentwood Home, Brooklyn Bedding, etc.

Please be aware that there are for profit companies that represent themselves as a charity. Emma Petersen told us that sometimes companies say that they work with Adopt a Bed that people who genuinely want to donate their mattress are sometimes misled. So be sure to contact them directly.

Adopt a Bed donates mattresses to homeless shelter, domestic violence centers and more.

We interviewed Emma Peterson, founder of Adopt a Bed, about how she got started and who they help with mattress donations. Watch the video below:

Today Amore Beds launches a new luxury hybrid bed made with foam and coils. With the new model they offer more personalization. You can get more firmness options or dual-firmness. Before this new model, Amore had a flippable all foam bed and a hybrid coil bed.

Amore Mattress Layers and Materials

Here’s a breakdown of the new bed:

Mattress Cover

Choose from two options: a copper infused cover (for an additional charge) or a hypoallergenic organic cotton cover.

2” of 100% Natural Talalay Latex

Sourced from what they say is the world’s finest rubber plant, Amore Beds’ Talalay latex is breathable, ultra comfortable and is made without any adhesives, glues or synthetics. Latex is renowned for responding instantly to changes in movement and equalizes body weight, therefore it offers superior  pressure point relief.

2” of FusionFlex™ Propriety Comfort Foam

Optimised for enhanced comfort, FusionFlex™ foam helps draw moisture away from the body and allows body heat to disperse quickly, enabling you to sleep cool and comfortable through the year. FusionFlex™ also offers greater surface resilience than other foams, ensuring your spine is adequately supported across a range of sleeping positions.

6” Wrapped Coils with Dual-Density Zoned Parimeter

A full grid of individually wrapped coils support every square inch of the body, aligning the spine and reducing aches and pains. The coil grid also allows for air to pass through the mattress for cooling. The zoned parimeter of dual-density coils along the edges of the mattress provides good edge support.

In addition, the Luxury Hybrid mattress utilizes GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) organic cotton with a blend of GOTS wool for a more natural flame resistance. The bed is made with breathable open-cell transition foam and a high-density foam base.

It’s engineered to conform well to an adjustable base which Amore also sells.

Thickness

The mattress is a full 12.5 inches and made with CertiPUR-US and Oeko-Tex certified materials.

Price

Amore Beds has an introductory offer that includes a free pillow. As an example, a queen costs $925.

Check Current Price

Comes with a 100-night risk-free sleep trial, free delivery*, a 10 – 20-year warranty and financing options. For complete information on the new Luxury Hybrid mattress, visit Amore Beds’ newly redesigned website at amorebeds.com

BedJet 3 cooling bed fan

BedJet 3 Bed Fan Launches on Kickstarter

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

The Bedjet v3 bed fan is coming! The popular bed fan is coming out with their newest model that’s completely redesigned and upgraded with cutting-edge technology.

This post contains affiliate links which means we may earn a commission on any sales.

It’s now available for pre-order on Kickstarter, shipping in December 2018.  Typically this is the cheapest price you’ll find on the product. We ordered one and can’t wait to review it.

See on Kickstarter

The company’s prior Kickstarter in 2015 they hit the $1 million dollar mark in only 28 days and is one of the Top 25 Tech Kickstarter campaigns of all time.

BedJet became the number one customer ranked product in the entire mattress category on Amazon, and the top selling cooling and heating product in America for beds.

On first look, it’s smaller and has no more medical-device look. Instead it has a slimmer, lower-profile design (30% smaller than previous models). It’s beautiful. It will look great in a room.

The BedJet is a cooling and warming fan that works in seconds to cool or heat your bed. It’s ideal for couples who have different temperature preferences.

Along with the new BedJet 3 there’s a new video created by the Harmon Brothers who also did the egg test mattress video for Purple mattress).

It’s a real hoot!

You can buy just the fan to go under your sheets or you can get the comforter that has special air pockets to contain the air.

We much prefer the comforter, not only for keeping the air more concentrated, but because you can cool/warm each side of the bed to your preference. Please note that you’d need to get 2 BedJets to have different fans/temperature on each side.

BedJet is ideal for menopausal women and their partners – where she cannot get cool enough and he’s an ice cube. We noticed many men buy this because they’re freezing to keep their wife comfortable so she can sleep well at night.

This is one of the few split preference products that we fully endorse. Mattresses with split firmness don’t work very well because a difference in softness creates a difference in elevation in your mattress so you feel separated from or there’s a ridge between you and your partner.

BedJet version 3

New BedJet v3 features include:

  • Amazon Alexa and Smart Home connectivity. Control your sleep comfort by voice and integrate with all sorts of cool platforms enabled by the new wifi chip in BedJet 3.
  • Color screen remote control for a bedding/sleep tech product. For folks who don’t like bringing their phones to bed to use our App to control the BedJets most advanced features. Now everything (including the biorhythm sleep cycles) can be programmed via the new remote.
    BedJet remote
  • New and improved BedJet app.
