Want to make getting out of bed on a cold winter morning even more difficult? In the dark ages (see: 10 years ago), the only way to stay warm at night was by piling the blankets high or, throwing cost to the wind and cranking your home’s thermostat. Fortunately, futuristic technology has brought a more efficient and effective way to stay toasty throughout the night—the smart bed.
Here are our top picks for heated smart beds.
Sleep Number 360 Series Smart Bed
Sleep Number knows that the most vulnerable appendages to the cold are those that are furthest from our core—our feet—which is why they’ve equipped their 360 Series Smart Beds with built in foot warmers, ensuring that you can have toasty toes from the edge of sleep to the early morning light. Controlling your foot warmer—or “microclimate” as Sleep Number calls it—is also a breeze, as a few taps on the accompanying app will let users adjust their temperatures before heading off to dreamland. And foot warmers are just the start of the Sleep Number’s smart features. The bed automatically adjusts firmness and comfort as you change positions throughout the night, includes Partner Snore technology to mitigate sawing logs, and tracks sleep performance to keep you in the know about what works for a better night’s rest.
Sleep Number 360 Series Smart Beds range from $899 to $6,899, depending on size and features.
Perhaps you already have the perfect mattress? It is an intimate item, after all, one in which you spend one-third of your life. If you still would like to add some heating features to your (almost) ideal mattress, then have a look at the BedJet. This mattress attachment provides heating (or cooling) for any type of bed setup via a series of tubes, a mattress cover and an under-the-bed air pump. It may sound weird—but it works, and better still, the BedJet system features dual zones, allowing partners to pick the ideal temp for their side of the bed. The BedJet is also Wi-Fi-enabled, meaning setting your temperature or switching from warm to cold air is as simple as swiping on the BedJet app.
The BedJet 3 for Couples is available for $839 to $899, depending on bed size.
Eight Sleep Pod Pro Mattress
The perfect mattress for couples with divergent opinions on how warm the bed should be. The Eight Sleep Pod Pro Mattress is a dual-zone cooling and heating smart bed that puts a heavy emphasis on allowing each sleeper to achieve their ideal temperature. Eight Sleep users can pick any temp between 55ºF and 110ºF to set as their side’s temperature, and the mattress will maintain that setting—intelligently and automatically. The Pod Pro’s Smart Temp Autopilot technology uses ambient sensors to detect the rooms temperature and humidity as it alters through the night and automatically adjusts the mattresses temperature so sleepers remain at their ideal input temp.
The Eight Sleep Pod Pro Mattress is available for $2,695 to $3,395, depending on mattress size.
Warmee Smart Mattress Pad
This is another option for those who have already found their favorite mattress. The Warmee Smart Mattress Pad is a mattress-covering attachment that features copper knit and unique Invisiwire technology, which heats your bed to an input temperature, while remaining undetectable to those lying upon it. In addition to adding some heat to a previously room-temperature mattress, the Warmee comes with a number of convenient connectivity features. The Wi-Fi-enabled Warmee can be easily controlled via the Warmee app—but can also be linked to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, meaning that heating your bed can be as simple as mumbling a few words before you fall asleep.
The Warmee Smart Mattress Pad is available for $199 to $349, depending on mattress size.
