Eight vs. NECTAR: The Ultimate Mattress Battle

With so many mattresses out there, how do you know if Eight Smart Mattress is the one for you? Well, we've made it easy for you by giving you an in-depth and honest comparison so you can make a smart decision regarding your sleep! Today we're comparing Eight with NECTAR. 

Let's Compare


The Eight Smart Mattress is a one of a kind mattress that combines ultimate comfort with sleep technology. Eight’s four layers of premium high-density foam provide unparalleled support. The foam is specially designed to offer bounce and comfort while ensuring a cool temperature. What really sets Eight apart from its competitors is the technology. The mattress comes with a smart cover and sleep tracker that measures your sleep and gives you insight on your sleeping habits. By learning about your sleep patterns, you will improve your sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day! In addition, Eight is the only mattress that has a bed warming feature, a smart alarm, and full smart home integration - all controlled and customized from the tip of your finger.

The Eight mattress falls at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which means it’s not too firm and not too soft. It offers dynamic support and contouring comfort without sacrificing breathability or resilience.


The NECTAR mattress is a little softer than Eight (5.5/10) and is made from all memory foam. The top layer is a 1” quilted gel foam that promises to deliver better loft, breathability, and air circulation. While Nectar claims their mattress “off gassing is limited or non-existent,” they point out that you might recognize a faint smell for a few days due to the vacuum packaging.

Eight is proudly made in the U.S.A 🇺🇸

Our mattresses are proudly designed and manufactured entirely in the USA with top of the line materials. On the other hand, NECTAR’s foams and mattress cover are made in China. Our trusted manufacturing facility has been producing mattress for over 100 years. We also offer 100% organic cotton sheets so your bed can be both smart AND soft.

Eight is data-approved

We know sleep. We’ve been tracking it for so long. 1,864,800 hours long to be precise. And upon reviewing over one million hours of sleep data, we realized what exactly people need in a mattress. We took these learnings and built the most comfortable mattress. For you. For everyone.

Eight is the only mattress in the market designed with sleep data. Our team used anonymized sleep data and the feedback of over 10,000 people to understand which materials and types of mattresses give customers the best sleep. Based on that research, we designed a mattress with a unique blend of four responsive and high density foam layers to provide optimal comfort and support. And we have the data to prove it. Thanks to our proprietary sleep tracking technology, we can measure your sleep behaviors and help you achieve the best rest possible.

What do the experts say? 

They love it!

Sleepopolis recommends this mattress for sleepers who want to improve the quality of their sleep and achieve a great night's sleep. The unique four layers of foam create a well-balanced mattress that has just the right amount of sinkage and hug without ever feeling stuck.

Mattress Insider says "it's a good mattress for anyone looking for that nice medium feel, somebody that wants a little more bounce than what you'll find on a memory foam, it's easy to adjust positions, and it has very good motion transfer reduction, and slept cool as well."
