At CES Unveiled in Vegas, Sleep Number introduced their Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed, one of the biggest innovations in the company’s 30-year history.

Bear Mattress, a new company to the online mattress game that promises a cool comfortable night of sleep sent me over their Bear Pillow to check out. The question is, what makes the Bear Pillow any different from a pillow you could pick up at any department store?
Not every gift needs to fall into the techy category; there are people who would much prefer something for the home — something to snuggle in, something comforting. Brooklinen‘s new blankets and candles definitely fit the bill.
Most of us spend an average of 8 hours in bed every day; that equals basically 1/3 of our lives, and that’s why it’s so important that the bed we sleep on and the sheets we sleep in are comfortable and conducive to a good night’s sleep. For the last week, I’ve been enjoying the Brooklinen Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle.
Over the past thirty nights I’ve had the pleasure of laying down on the Leesa Mattress and honestly, it’s been a pleasure to have such luxury beneath me.
Some time back I reviewed the eve mattress. It is a great mattress that belongs to the growing number of “bed in a box” offerings that can be found on the internet. Raina and I sleep on the review sample every night. When the company offered a review sample of their pillow, I jumped at the opportunity. Here’s a look.
Brooklyn Bedding’s website offers the tagline “One Mattress to Rule Them All.” It’s an interesting statement but slightly inaccurate. You see, this is the third “bed in a box” I’ve reviewed, and it’s the one that offers the most options. In addition to a range of sizes, it also offers a range of firmness. And the price can’t be beat.
With the 4th of July weekend coming up, why not splurge a little and get yourself a new mattress, and get a FREE one on Casper?
The Nox Smart Sleep System combines the Nox, a smart sleep light; RestOn, a non-wearable sleep sensor; and the Sleepace mobile application to monitor, track, and improve your sleep. The Nox will provide soft sleep-inducing light and sound while you are falling asleep, the RestOn will monitor your sleep, and the Nox will wake you naturally with light and sound.
In a very innovative partnership, Leesa, one of the first and leading online mattress companies, has partnered with ArtLifting, an online marketplace that allows disabled, homeless, and other disadvantaged artists to sell their artwork. Together, the two have launched a retail storefront in SoHo, NYC called The Leesa Dream Gallery, a combined mattress store and art gallery.
We recently reviewed the Eve Mattress. A British company fast making inroads into the US market, the mattress is remarkably comfortable and priced amazingly well. Better yet, Eve Mattress has agreed to offer Gear Diary readers a special discount until November 30, 2017! That’s right, you can save an EXTRA $200 on a great night’s sleep by using the codeeve200usa!
A little over a year ago, I received a “bed in a box” for review. Fast forward a year, and my wife Raina suggested we move from a queen mattress to a king. Eve Mattress was one of two companies kind enough to send one of their kind mattresses for review; I’ve been sleeping on it for two weeks.
Sleep and I have a sometimes erratic relationship. Some nights I deal with insomnia, and I might sleep 4 or 5 hours at best; other nights I’ll need to catch up on sleep so badly that I’ll pass out for 12 or more hours. Ideally, I should get 8 hours sleep per night. Obviously, what I’ve been doing isn’t ideal.
You know what’s better than a good night’s rest? A good night’s rest on a mattress that you helped create, according to how YOU want to sleep. There are plenty of mattresses on the market, but are you ready to spend thousands for comfort — especially when you can do the same thing for less money?
Are you having restless nights? Do you have an issue with your mattress being too warm and uncomfortable to sleep on? Well you’re in luck then, as there’s a new way for you to make sure you’re not suffering from … not insomnia, but a horrible mattress.
I recently began a series of posts about covering and reviewing items that help me as I begin the next stage of my life. To be single again for the first time in 20 years is an adjustment; creating a new home that feels like home is important, and that began when my Casper mattress arrived. I love it.
At 49 years old, I find myself on my own and “starting over.” I want my new place to feel like home. Fortunately I know what I like and, within reason, I can afford what I need. This post series will look at some of the gear that come into play as I start my life … at midlife.
Withings Aura Active Smart Sleep System combines an under-mattress sleep sensor and a unique bedside device in order to take into account your entire sleeping environment so that it can improve your overall sleeping experience. The color changing bedside device uses light and sound programs to “positively impact your sleeping conditions.” The sleep system sends all the data it collects to a free mobile phone app so that you can visualize your sleep and learn what wakes you up or helps you sleep. With the app, you can adjust your wake pattern as well. The bedside device emits different colors…
You don’t get a long-lasting relationship without actually wanting to spend significant time with another person. And since we spend a significant amount of our life in bed, cuddling seems like a great way to enhance time together – but at a cost of possible circulation and nerve damage. The ‘Cuddle Mattress’ has an innovative way to solve those! Inventor Mehdi Mojtabavi was highlighted on NPR this week because of his innovative design. It divides the upper and lower portions of the bed into a series of slats. Side sleepers can wedge their arm — or stomach sleepers can wedge…
Sarah and I just bought a new mattress. This would not normally be news, but it was quite the shocker to discover just how complex buying a mattress has become. The last time I had to shop for a bed, I called 1-800-Mattress and bought the cheapest one they could quickly deliver. It was quick and it was simple. No longer. Now there are mattresses in every possible firmness, material, and price — except cheap. Honestly, I wanted to avoid the whole thing as long as possible, but Friday night our old bed struck back. I rolled over, and then…
Over the last three years I’ve run over 50 road races. From local 5-Ks to finishing 12 full marathons and every other distance in between. If there’s on thing that all of the races have in common, besides the running, it’s the “race-shirt.” For as long as I can remember road races have always rewarded their participants with a t-shirt which not only commemorated the event but also allowed for sponsors to get their names out to the public too. As you can probably imagine with all the running I’ve done I’ve accumulated a lot of t-shirts. For a long…
