If you struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature while you sleep, Eight Sleep might have a solution -- the Pod. Available at $2,495 for a king-sized model, $2,195 for a queen and $1,995 for a full, the Pod is a with a bunch of integrated tech.
The Pod is "the first bed to combine dynamic temperature regulation, biometric tracking, smart home integrations and sleep coaching," according to Eight Sleep's official press release.
An "active grid layer" that zips onto the mattress holds the Pod's sensors and other tracking tech. Not only is it supposed to track your sleep stats and learn your habits over time, it's also supposed to auto-adjust the bed's temperature for you, based on your circadian rhythm.
The Pod ranges from 55 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don't want it to adjust the temperature for you, you can change it manually.
Its "thermo alarm" feature is supposed to wake you up more naturally than a standard alarm clock by cooling the bed before your desired wake time.
Each bed has two zones and it's designed to adjust each side independently.

Eight Sleep's claims that the Pod automatically adjusts the temperature is its main differentiator. Plenty of other smart beds and sleep accessories offer temperature control:has an optional mattress pad with a variety of heat settings. , a smart sleep accessory I saw at CES earlier this year, pumps water into a smart pillow case to ensure you don't get too chilly or overheated as you sleep. Eight Sleep's own even has heated temperature controls.
You can preorder a Pod today for $95. You'll pay the remaining amount when the bed ships in April.
