Snap's Camera Spectacles Now Available Through Amazon

After debuting exclusively inside special pop-up vending machines last year before becoming available as direct web orders, Snap has now begun selling its video-recording Spectacles through Amazon for the first time.


When synced with the Snapchat mobile app, users can tap a button on the Spectacles to begin recording a 10, 20, or 30-second video, which is saved in the "Memories" section of the app and can be revisited and posted to their Story.

As of writing, the $129.99 Spectacles are in stock on July 23 and come in Coral, Black and Teal, and include a charging case, charging cable, cleaning cloth, and Quickstart guide. All Spectacles also come with a one-year warranty.

According to Snap, Spectacles can capture up to 100 Snaps on one charge, and the charging case can hold up to four full charges at a time.

I'm not sure about the specs for these Specs.

Spectacularly spectacular spectacles make the wearer look like a spectacularly spectacular spectacle.

I work on a college campus and I've never once seen these on any student. Are these targeted at 14 year olds?


Same here. I work specifically in social media on a 50000-person campus, haven't seen anyone wearing them yet. Thank goodness they're goofy looking, at least the goofiness helps to identify those who plan on filming the people around them :P

Bought mine a few months back when Snap started selling them on their website.... I've stopped using them and haven't seen anyone else using them either.

Honestly, I could see a lot of people going for these...if they didn't look so goofy.

I used them on a weekend vacation once ... they are pretty neat (if you are into snapchat). I ended up selling them on ebay though ... they were way too goofy looking.

Are they anything like the rose colored glasses that investors used when they bought Snap stock.

You would think that they could design some glasses that people would look good wearing.

I know many don't like the idea but I think it's a pretty clever product.

* Design seems aligned enough with current neon color trends ('http://www.elle.com/fashion/g8412/very-bright-the-dos-and-donts-of-summer-neon/').
* Price is kept way down for casual, typical Snapchat users, knowing their demography.
* Complexity is very low to lower barriers of entry down to essentially nothing. A true one trick pony - per design.
* Video duration is low since this isn't about filming documentaries, but ephemeral moments, exactly like how their app is used.

People may not like the glasses but I have a hunch that many of those don't like Snapchat either...

These glasses aren't built for them. They're built for people who love Snapchat.

These would have looked good with the 5c.
