And yes, that's the other big change: Spectacles are no longer an elusive piece of tech that sent journalists and Snapchat fans running around the country. The previous version of these glasses, released in 2016, did not go over so well for the company, which sold only 150,000 units and may have been left with hundreds of thousands of unsold devices. The glasses can record video at 1216 by 1216 pixels at 60 frames per second with a touch of a button on the left side.

Spectacles can record 10-second video snippets, which are created to approximate one's natural field of vision. With this new pair of glasses, you can capture images and can take videos as well, this time this all can be achieved in HD resolution.

Just as we expected it would, Snap has officially revealed the second-generation version of Spectacles. You'll be able to choose between Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire, with two different lens options for colour as well. But although the first-generation Spectacles model was generally well-received among those who bought it, the Spectacles didn't sell as well as Snap had hoped, and the company was ultimately forced to write down almost $40 million in Spectacles. Their charging case is also getting shrunk. They are available right now. Many users aren't going to go rushing out to buy these things, nor is it even clear why they should, hence why they had low engagement rates even among those who bought them.

Authorities haven't decided a explanation for dying for Wall, however stated her torso had been stabbed a number of occasions. He admitted reducing Wall's physique into items after he was unable to carry her corpse upwards so he may bury her at sea.

The Spectacles are now water-resistant in shallow water as well.

The final improvement is the fact that the Snapchat Spectacles 2 are now safe to take into the water - allowing you to safely dive into a pool wearing them or splash around in the ocean.

The Spectacles are available from today in the US, Canada and France exclusively at Spectacles.com priced at £149.99 (includes charging case and cable). Those that are looking for a prescription version will be happy to know that now that is a possibility and will be offered through Lensabl for an additional $125.
