If you need to sleep better, relax better or work better this summer Esquire has the list for you. They put together some of the newest and coolest tech of 2018 and these will help you do all three.

Bose Sleepbuds: They are meant for sleep, and nothing else. They play calming tones, like ocean waves, which overpower noises like your partner snoring or traffic. You can’t play music through them either, which is a good thing.

Nintendo Nes Classic Edition: This is the re-re-release of the classic console (the original was released in 1985). It is packed with 30 old-school games that will help you re-capture the spirit of gaming.

Fitbit Versa Watch: This watch competes directly with Apple Watch and is holding its own. It has a music library, Bluetooth to connect to your wireless headphones, and all the health tracking and personalized coaching you need to get back into the swing of working out. It does sync with your smartphone to show you texts, calendar events and other notifications like the Apple Watch as well.

HTC Vive Pro VR Headset: Need to escape from reality for a while? Head into the virtual reality world instead. Esquire calls it the best experience money can buy.
