I am incredibly proud of our team because we are daring to dream bigger and different.

Preliminary data has shown that 49% of Eight Sleep members see an increase of at least 10% in their heart rate variability (HRV) one week after sleeping on the Pod, with 36% of members seeing an increase of upwards of 15%. An increase in HRV indicates improved recovery as well as improved cardiovascular health.
