Our Moona Pillow Review
The Moona pillow is a very simple concept that could have impressive results. They use a device to pump temperature regulated water through a pad in your pillow. The Moona monitors your sleep in real time, adjusting the temperature of the water. If the sleeper is about to wake too soon, the Moona will lower the water temperature to lull the sleeper back into REM.
Does Sleep technology work?
Will the Moona give you a better sleep? This is going to be the biggest question for everyone looking at smart sleep technology. Smarter sleep is one of the most significant changes coming to the bedding industry. Products like the Moona claim to monitor and adjust your sleep to ensure a restful night.
The monitoring technology is already available. It has been around for a few years. Apps such as Sleep Cycle monitor your sleep and wake you up out of a REM cycle. It was just the first step towards what would eventually be Smart Sleep technology.
The first company that took it the step further was Eight Sleep. The Eight Sleep Smart Mattress cover had a built in heater. It monitored the sleeper, adjusting the temperature of the bed. The only flaw of the Eight Sleep was the inability to cool the sleeper down. Most of the mattresses we have reviewed always end up running a little warm.
The Moona Pillow aims to solve this problem by using water as their medium. Controlling water temperature gives Moona the ability to heat and cool the sleeper through the night. Capacity to cool the sleeper gives the Moona a big leg up over the Eight Sleep Mattress cover. But does the Moona actually give a better sleep? It’s still too early to tell.
