They are simply sunglasses with a camera that sits on the right side, while a circular aperture on the left side is there for notifications like battery life and interactivity. A blue light tail will begin spinning in this hole to let people know that you are recording, and the videos can easily be sent through Bluetooth over to your phone so you can send them to your friends on snapchat or post them to your stories.
The glasses come with a recharging case, in which you put the glasses in for automatic recharging. The spectacles will send all the videos to your phone from there you can select which ones to keep and which ones to delete. The glasses come with a Wifi chip, which allows you to send HD videos to the app which can be sent on or published to your stories, however this is a longer transfer process compared to the automatic ones that you record and publish directly. Snapchat Spectacles allow you to record a circular video, so if you rotate your phone when watching the video in the app, it doesn’t affect the canvass and you see more of your video.
Reviews show that the snapchat spectacles are stylish and make snaps feel more immersive. The only downside with them is that you can’t wear them with prescription glasses.
At a price of $129.99, if you can get your hands on them, the snapchat spectacles are a playful wearable accessory to take your first-person social media curation to the next level. They are an innovation in technology and one of the first of it’s kind, there only time will tell the successes of this new wearable.
