All You Need To Know About Snapchat\'s New Spectacles

Snapchat has launched the second variant of its V series Spectacles. After making its debut in fall of 2016, Snapchat’s Spectacles has come a long way. The new offering is named as V2 with a price tag of $150. As compared to the previous model, the new spectacles have been tweaked smartly to offer better features to the consumer.

Intended for utilizing solely with Snapchat, the Spectacles record round videos that one can see in Snapchat. The current vision of the new glasses is 105-degrees contrasted with 115-degrees from the first model, which implies you'll get marginally less in your shot. Snapchat’s updated spectacles highlights incorporate water-sealing, higher-def video and marginally refreshed outline. One of the plus points is, all the recordings are currently moved to Snapchat in HD and the exported videos can further be posted to various other platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

The water-sealing and higher-def video are advancements intended to pacify existing clients who have pushed up against the restrictions. Though these updates look quite minor, making more room for the company to redesign.

There is a single button on the Spectacle’s outline, which can be pressed once to snap a 10-second video or take a 30-second clasp in the event that you squeeze it once more. Simply press and hold to take a still photograph. During a video recording, a LED illumination around the camera can be seen. The glasses can store away about 150 recordings or 3,000 photographs at any given moment. Once you are done with the recordings, Spectacles can further be paired with the smartphone by syncing it through Bluetooth. The best part is the case which withholds the Spectacles can also charge it’s battery. In one go, the user can record around 70 videos.

The addition of $20 seems to a bit more than expected, especially with the added features of the company. After all, it is a fun gadget and spending $150 on a smart glass may pinch many of us. If Snapchat is focusing on just the camera aspect then it needs to reconsider their approach about such spectacles because, with the existence of portable cameras like GoPro, such glasses are bound to vanish in thin air in the near future. 

The Spectacles are obviously interesting in reason and offer an early future for cutting-edge eyewear that such a large number of tech companies are as of now wagering on. This is as yet the vision, yet Spectacles haven't broken what this truly implies yet. Something similar to HUD (head-up display) will do more good to these kinds of spectacles. We hope, the next product in the line of V series will prove its worth rather than just taking the Snapchat’s Spectacles legacy forward.
