The Eight Sleep cooling mattress cover offers hot sleepers a chance to take control of their rest, and right now there's up to $200 off in the Eight Sleep sale. With cutting-edge cooling technology built right into the mattress cover, with the Eight Sleep Pod 4 you can enjoy the perfect temperature all night long – just what you need for summer.

The Pod 4 Ultra is the latest release from Eight Sleep and it ups the comfort level by combining innovative cooling technology with the pressure relief of an adjustable bed base.

With summer underway and temperatures heading upwards, this early 4th of July mattress sale is a great opportunity to invest in cooler sleeper for less. Read on to discover why the Eight Sleep Pod 4 Ultra is my top pick for hot sleepers.

Alongside cutting-edge cooling technology, the Eight Sleep Pod 4 contains integrated sleep tracking sensors, monitoring your rest throughout the night to deliver a breakdown of your sleep patterns in the morning. This tracking can help you understand and improve your sleep – plus, you get to see how the Eight Sleep has influenced your kip.

To receive your discount, you do need to sign up for the mailing list, otherwise it's back to $150. This is unusually good deal from Eight Sleep, and we don't expect to see anything better on the 4th of July.

As well as the initial cost, an additional subscription is required. The Standard subscription is $15 per month and comes with a 2-year warranty, while the Enhanced plan is $24 a month and includes an upgraded 5-year warranty. Each subscription covers two people.

Can the Eight Sleep Pod 4 track your sleep?

Eight Sleep claims the Pod 4 and Pod 4 Ultra feature 'clinical-grade sleep and health tracking', including heart rate, sleep stages, and respiratory rate tracking. With sensors built into the mattress cover, the Eight Sleep can understand your rest from head to toe.

If you want to know more about your sleep but you've found fitness tracking wearables uncomfortable or inaccurate, the Eight Sleep is an excellent alternative (albeit, a pricey one). For more information, check out our comparison of smart beds vs sleep trackers
