The Saturn+ is available in one firmness setting, which rates betwen a 6-7 on the firmness scale. The scale runs from 1-10, with 1 being the least firm and 10 being the most firm. The Saturn+ is considered a medium firm. That’s usually a safe place for most customers to begin. If you know you prefer a very soft or plush feel, this bed might not be the right fit for you.
Three layers make up the Saturn+. The support core is 6 inches of 1.8 PCF (pounds per cubic foot) support foam. The following layer is 2 inches of 1.8 PCF transition foam. The top comfort layer is 2 inches of 3 PCF polyfoam. The mattress’ “smart cover” contains the technology that connects to an app on your phone to track sleep, heart rate, and respiratory rate. It also monitors the bed’s temperature, which can be regulated from the app as well. The technology can also sink with your smart home device, to do things like turn on your lights or start your coffee pot.
After a Saturn+ is ordered, it is compressed, sealed in plastic, and delivered to your door in a marked box. The smart cover ships in a separate box. The bed arrives in one piece, but you will need to put the smart cover over the mattress.
Shipping is available to the contiguous 48 states free of charge. Deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, or international locations is not available at this time.
The Saturn+ is typically delivered within 10 business days of ordering.
White glove delivery service is available. For an additional $75, Eight Sleep will arrange in-home delivery and removal of all packaging. For an additional $50 ($125 total), they will also arrange to remove an old mattress from the home.
Eight Sleep offers a 100-night sleep trial on the Saturn+. The company does require that you keep the mattress for at least 30 days before initiating a return. If at any time between 30-100 nights you are not satisfied, you can return the mattress, the smart cover, or both, for a full refund of your purchase price. Any delivery fees are non-refundable.
The Saturn+ is covered by Eight Sleep’s 10-year warranty. During that time, the company will pay to repair or replace a defective mattress. Note that warranty does not include the smart cover or sleep tracking technology. The smart cover carries a 2-year warranty and the sleep tracker is covered by a 1-year warranty.

Eight Sleep Saturn+ Mattress Performance
Foam mattresses tend to isolate motion quite well. The foam “traps” the motion, keeping it from transferring across the bed. As expected with its construction, the Saturn+ performs well in this category.
On the other hand, foam mattresses don’t do so well when it comes to edge support. Because the perimeter is not reinforced, it often tends to sag and sink – especially if there’s a certain spot where you normally sit on the edge of the bed. Saturn+ customers report that this is indeed a problem with this bed as well.
The foam layers on the Saturn+ don’t have the same give and “sink” of memory foam, so they don’t trap as much body heat. In addition, the bed’s technology allows sleepers to have control over bed temperature.
“Off-gassing” is the smell that results when a compressed and sealed mattress is first removed from its packaging. This odor is temporary and usually doesn’t last more than a day or two. You should expect this smell from the Saturn+, but it won’t last long.
The support in the Saturn+ comes from its combination of foam layers. The bed’s comfort layer is only 2 inches thick, which does give us some pause. We usually look for comfort layer that are at least 3 inches thick. The Saturn+ might be fine for some, but heavier sleepers or those who sleep on their side might not find enough support with this bed.
The Saturn+’s foam layers react to pressure and heat to conform to each sleeper. Without traditional memory foam, the bed doesn’t provide a tight “hug.” The polyfoam layers still work, however, to alleviate pain and pressure points.
The foams used in the Saturn+ are not as dense as we would typically like to see when considering durability. It’s also important to remember that the bed’s technology will likely not last as long as the mattress itself.
Couples sometimes find that foam beds lack responsiveness and make it difficult to easily move on the bed. This could restrict sexual activity. Couples who are worried about this might consider a hybrid or innerspring mattress that has more bounce.

What Type of Sleeper Is Well Suited to an Eight Sleep Saturn+ Mattress?
When buying a new bed, it’s important to remember that this decision is a very personal one. You should consider your own preferences, sleeping position, body weight and type, as well as any health conditions you may have. Also consider your own comfort and support needs. You should also take advantage of any sleep trial to make sure your new bed is the right fit for you.
With that in mind, consider this subjective customer feedback for the Saturn+ mattress:
Looking at the chart below, you see that sleepers who are below average weight (those who weight under 130 lbs) rate the Saturn+ quite well. Sleepers of an average weight (those weighing between 130-230 lbs) also seem quite happy with the bed. Side and back sleepers rate it “very good.” Those sleepers are above an average weight (those who weigh more than 230 lbs.) don’t rate the bed quite as highly. As we mentioned, heavier sleepers might find the bed’s comfort layer to be too thin.
|Below Average Weight (under 130 lbs)||Average Weight (130-230 lbs)||Above Average Weight (above 230 lbs)|
|Side Sleepers||Good||Very good||Fair|
|Back Sleepers||Very good||Very good||Good|
