The Pod is the latest innovation by Eight Sleep, the sleep fitness company using technology to help people sleep better. Launched to great success in February of 2019, the Pod is the first bed to combine dynamic temperature regulation, biometric tracking, smart home integrations and sleep coaching to deliver a total solution for enhanced rest and recovery. Its most groundbreaking feature, dynamic temperature, includes artificial intelligence that learns sleep habits and adjusts the temperature in bed automatically. The feature was built using data and knowledge accumulated over the years as an industry leader, including more than 51 million hours of tracked sleep and a body of circadian rhythm research.
Within a few months of being on the market, the Pod has built a cult user base of business leaders, technology titans, venture capitalists, and high- performing athletes including Daryl Homer - Olympic Fencer, Ryan Lochte - Olympic Swimmer, Cassius Marsh - SF 49'ers, Mitchell Robinson - NY Knicks, Jarvis Landry - Cleveland Browns, Katie Boren - American Ballet Theatre, Matthew Dellavedova - Cleveland Cavaliers, and many more.
"At Eight Sleep, we are building products that optimize sleep through technology, data, and insights. As a pioneer of the sleep fitness category, we are educating the world on what it means to be sleep fit, how to achieve it, how to measure it, and the benefits of it," said Matteo Franceschetti, Co-Founder and CEO of Eight Sleep. "The Pod is a testament that technology, when properly used, has the power to unlock positive potential including, better rest for every individual. Five years from now, consumers will expect much more from their beds and products like the Pod are setting a new standard."
