The limited and exclusive release proved to be successful such that Snap is now selling its video-recording Spectacles to more consumers. Users can shoot around 100 ten-second clips on the Spectacle's internal storage that are dropped into Snapchat's Memories section. Ordering the smartglasses today would secure one with a pair that's due to arrive two to four weeks later.
For $129.99, the glasses, sold in coral, black and teal colored frames, let wearers film "snaps" at the touch of a button. Do note though, that you can spend $10 to $50 - depending upon whether you want to pick up charging chords or a charging case to go with the spectacles, both of which will no longer be listed on Amazon. There may also be Spectacles available on other sites like Amazon or eBay, but they are most likely secondhand products.
The information is then sent directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. According to CNET, they were also sold for a brief moment at a pop-up shop in New York City, which is now closed.
