Snapchat’s Spectacles are new and improved, but they don’t solve the fundamental problems with wearing cameras on your face
I wasn't impressed with the overall design or execution of the first Spectacles. Snapchat's second-generation camera glasses announced this week look like a definite improvement, but there are some obvious issues with the device as well.
Snap has released the second-generation Spectacles, a slimmer, lighter, better-looking version, and the first update to the glasses since 2016.
The new model of Snap's Spectacles are slightly slimmer, can take photos, and they're water-resistant.
Snap is preparing a second version of its camera glasses, Spectacles, according to a regulatory filing with the FCC which was made public on Tuesday.
Snap reportedly has two new versions of its Spectacles in the works, with the first arriving this fall
Spectacles 2.0 will reportedly arrive this fall, with a more expensive, more powerful version following that.
The camera-glasses were a total flop.
They were the 2010s equivalent of a 1970s fad.
Snap's stock is slipping after the company said it's Spectacles camera glasses didn't sell as well as expected.
Snap's internal data showed that fewer than half of Spectacles owners continued to use the camera-equipped sunglasses one month after purchase.
Speaking at a conference, Spiegel said selling hardware will be an important part of Snap's business in the future.
