Snapchat Spectacles Now Available for Online Purchase

Originally, the camera-equipped glasses were only available through vending machines.


Snap Inc. has released its Spectacles for purchase online. 

The social media outlet first released the accessory in September 2016, claiming it had the smallest wireless video camera in the world that is capable of holding a full day’s worth of charge. 

With the press of a button, users can record 10- to 30-second long videos, then upload them to their Snapchat account via Bluetooth after verification. 

Before Monday, the Spectacles were available only for purchase at the company’s pop-up vending machines scattered around the country. Now, for $129.99, and a two- to four-week wait, you can buy the coral, black, or teal glasses online. 

Although the specs come with a charger in the case, a separate charger case is available for $49.99, and charging cables are $9.99.
