New Snap Spectacles now available, Snapchat glasses V2

As for the expectations for the second gen Spectacles, Cheddar has predicted that we could see two versions, one with Global Positioning System and dual cameras and more advanced features and one product closer to what the first gen offered.

The new Snap Spectacles are the second generation of the company's wearable. But the fervor soon fizzled, and the company disclosed previous year that it was sitting on hundreds of thousands of unsold pairs and took a $40 million loss on the glasses. According to a Snap spokesperson, the company recognizes the planning mistake and is keen to learn from it. The fact that the product is referred to as "Model 002" indicates that this is a second generation device.

In order to better deliver the Snapchat Spectacles 2, the company refined the current model in three different ways based off of employee and consumer complaints. Currently, sales are limited to the US, Canada, Great Britain, and France. It syncs with your phone by just using Bluetooth and the videos/images transfer is now 4 times faster compared to the old version of spectacles.

The temple area of the frame is now 30 percent smaller, and the charging case has dropped in size by 20 percent. The new Spectacles now sport two microphones instead of one to improve the audio quality of far-field voices while also helping out with noise reduction.




The biggest new feature for this year's Spectacles, though, is the inclusion of water resistance.

Lenses come in flat and gradient designs, and Snap's partnered with Lensabl so you can buy prescription-strength glasses from their site.

If Snapchat is truly to pull off the Spectacles successfully, they may finally see a profitable quarter after losing $720 million past year.

There's no precise details on the battery life, but Snap's website says it'll manage up to record 70 videos on a single charge. While the new Spectacles may look virtually identical to the old model at a glance, the new model is actually slimmer, as the bulk of the original model made it somewhat impractical to carry around in place of sunglasses.
