Social media is now becoming easier than ever to use in your daily life. Snapchat’s parent company Snap is now selling their YouTube famous Spectacles online in the US.
Yes, you can now buy your own pair Snapchat recording glasses to start filling your own feed with more content easier than ever. They glasses come with a charging cable and case, along with the pair for $129.99. When considering the price, it is actually lower than expected!
These glasses have been a hot topic thanks to Snap using YouTubers and pop up vending machines in NYC. Many have thought the promotion was a stunt to bring more awareness and interest in the brand. However, due to seeing the hype and interest in the actual glasses has made Snap take the product more seriously now. Hence why they will be selling these through their website, which will also sell spare charging cases and cords via their site. Meaning Amazon will no longer be carrying these items.
Here are some quick facts:
- You have up to 6 pairs in one household
- Shipping can take 2-4 weeks
- Charging cases cost $50.00
- Cords cost $10.00
- They come in 3 colors
- No word on if/when it will be sold in other countries
It will be interesting to see how well these perform compared to Google Glass. However, I am not sure if these will make a big enough impact to stick around. I do expect that Instagram and Facebook will need to find a way to compete with these. However, they may also wait to see how well these sell and that wouldn’t be a bad move either.
