In less than four months, Snap Inc. has announced two new styles Veronica and Nico of Spectacles 2. These new wearable video recording eyewear from Snap look more like regular sunglasses if you were ever concerned about the fancier circular design in the previous ones from Snap.
Both the new styles contain all the same features and recording quality enhancements that came with the second variant of Snap Spectacles. These new Spectacles come with polarized lenses and cannot be easily identified as video recording eyeglasses until you look very closely.
The new variants, priced at $199.99, are $50 costlier than the regular ones and also only come with a semi-soft leather case rather than the yellow charging case which accompanies the original. Both Nico and Veronica are already available in “limited quantities” to the US and certain European countries.
These new Spectacles will be available at select Nordstorm and Neiman Marcus this fall. People using prescription lens can order via Lenasbl, like earlier. However, both Veronica and Nico are available in black color options only.
Snap has also announced a new feature that will be available later in the fall and automatically groups your best-captured shots from Spectacles into a single highlight story. This will save your time from having to manually go through all the images or videos in case you take lots of them.
