MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eight Sleep, the world's first sleep fitness company, today announced that customers based in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain can now purchase the brand’s best-selling Pod Pro Cover, exclusively at eightsleep.com. Available sizes will be EU Double, EU Large Double and EU Super King. The Pod Pro Cover uses PerfectFitTM design to fit any mattress of up to 40cm (16 inches) in height so users can enjoy Eight Sleep’s proprietary sleep improving technology while continuing to use their current mattress. Today’s announcement immediately follows Eight Sleep’s expansion to the UK which began last month, delivering on the company’s plan to extend distribution to international markets following their Series C round of $86M.
The Pod Pro Cover helps people sleep better and ultimately, live better, longer, happier lives by leveraging innovative technology to create a personalized microclimate in bed. Using health-grade sensors and creating individual AI models, the Pod Pro Cover adapts the sleeping temperature by responding to each user’s sleep patterns, temperature preferences, environment values, and feedback history. This data-driven approach guides the user towards sleep optimization, and case studies have shown that Eight Sleep products help users to fall asleep up to 40% faster, get up to 20% more deep sleep, experience 30% fewer mid-night wake ups, and up to 30% fewer tosses and turns.
Currently more than 100 pro athletes rely on the Eight Sleep Pod technology to power their recovery, including current and former Olympians Matthew Dellavedova (2020 Bronze Medalist, Basketball), Daryl Homer (2020, and 2016 Silver Medalist, Fencing), Jane Campbell (2020 Bronze Medalist, Soccer), Apolo Ohno (Two-Time Gold Medalist, Speed Skating), Justin Medeiros (2021 Crossfit Games and 2021 Rogue Invitational Winner) and Daniel Sturridge (English Soccer Player).
The Pod Pro Cover is available for purchase and delivery in select Europe countries as of today with prices starting at $1,695 USD. At checkout, prices are reflected in USD, but EU-based customers will be charged in local currency based on the exchange rate at that moment. There are no additional costs for shipping, duties or returns. Eight Sleep maintains its 30-day free returns policy, as well as a 2-year limited warranty for any Pod Pro Cover purchased directly from the company.
“Our recent expansion to the UK was just the start of scaling our business globally and we’re excited to announce six more countries in Europe that now have access to our advanced tech-based products improving overall health,” said Matteo Franceschetti, Co-founder and CEO of Eight Sleep. “With the goal of becoming accessible to all people, continued growth is a focal point right now. We are helping people everywhere achieve optimal health and that requires availability. This an exciting step for more users throughout Europe to join existing customers as devoted fans of Eight Sleep products.”
