How to choose a smart mattress this President's Day

Smart beds and smart mattresses are not cheap, in fact, this is one time where buying a mattress really is an investment. And with President's Day sales in full swing, there are many tempting options to choose from. Here are just some things to consider when choosing a smart mattress or bed this Presidents’ Day. 

Do you sleep hot?  If the answer to this is yes, then look for a smart mattress or bed with built-in heating and cooling properties. The Sleep Number i8 has a combination of layers with four times more ceramic gel to release excess heat  so even the hottest of sleepers can manage to stay cool. 

Pick one for your sleeping style: How do you usually sleep? Are you a side sleeper or maybe you prefer to sleep on your back, it could be you start on your side and roll over onto your stomach, whatever your sleeping style, finding a mattress that has the right firmness rating to support that is a must. This Sleep Number i8 has personalized adjustable firmness, so if you’re sharing a bed and you both have different firmness preferences, this is ideal. 

What is your budget? Smart mattresses and beds can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. It is important to set a budget before you start shopping so you don't overspend. And make sure you consider those added extras such as any in-app purchases, pillows, additional sensors, and even a smart bed frame, that you may need for your smart bed to work. 

What metrics do you want to track? A smart bed or mattress sounds great, but unless you’ve a firm idea about what it is you want to find out from your new mattress, it’s a pretty unworthy purchase. Think carefully about what you want to find out from your smart mattress or bed and what you’re planning on doing with that information to make sure that it has all the capabilities that you need to sleep better than ever.
