Snapchat Spectacles need no introduction and almost everyone knows about it. The multimedia messaging giant revealed this piece of tech way back in 2016 and since then we haven’t seen any improvement until now. Snap Inc today unveiled their second generation Spectacles which is way better than its predecessor.
If you don’t know what is Snap Spectacles by any chance and I don’t know why. It is a pair of smart glasses which features a camera lens capable of recording short videos. You can sync this video directly to your Snapchat account. The idea looks promising here but sadly it was not that much of a success.
Well, the brand is now back with an upgraded and better version called Spectacles V2. In this article, we will look at the things this smart glasses can do now.
Snapchat Spectacles V2 brings a host of changes
Let’s begin with the first improvement you have in your mind. That’s right. Snapchat’s Spectacles are now smaller making them more comfortable to carry or wear. Want to record short videos capturing happy moments at the pool? this version of Spectacles can do that. It is water-resistant.
Talking about the hardware level improvements, the brand has worked on the cameras and you can now record HD resolution videos. You have an option to record either 10 or 20 or 30-second clips. Audio quality is also improved a lot thanks to the addition of second microphones.
This version is not just about the short clips. It is also about the images. This second-gen spectacles now can capture still images which is a great improvement. One of the important aspects of any gadget is its battery life. Surprisingly even after so many improvements, the battery life is same. A single charge lets you shoot over 70 videos including the transfers to your device. Speaking of transfers, you can sync your images with 3-4x less time.
You can charge it via the case which by the way also need a charge. It’s just like before nothing new.
Snapchat Spectacles V2 Price and Availability
With so many improvements, there is definitely a price hike which in my opinion is not that big. For a small increase of 20$ you can get yourself one of these smart glasses. This updated version will be up for grab from today in the following countries – United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and France. They’ll be available May 3rd in the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Poland, Spain, Italy, and Ireland.
Unfortunately, it’s not available in India AGAIN atleast for now. Snapchat Spectacles V2 are available in three different colours – Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire.
Overall, there are tons of new improvements in this smartglasses which might attract various consumers. You can also buy it from the spectacles.com
A prescription and polarized version will be offered later.
