The Eight Sleep Pod is a foam mattress with integrated sleep tracking and a cooling and warming water-based (hydronic) top layer called the “ActiveGrid”. We compare the Eight Sleep Pod to the BedJet 3, an air-based climate comfort sleep system for beds that can be integrated on any mattress of choice and used with any sleep tracker. While both products are effective solutions for sleep temperature control, we tested each side by side in our engineering lab to demonstrate their differences.
The Eight Sleep Pod was installed per the manufacturer’s instructions and not modified in any way.
(Except when it was poked with a sharp pointy object during an abuse test!)
