If you've been eagerly wanting to get your hands on the unique Snap Spectacles, now you can! Previously the only ways to purchase these elusive sunglasses were to find a pop-up vending machine across the states, or visit the Spectacles store in New York City. They are now available for anyone to purchase on the Spectacles website for $130 (U.S. Only). In light of the recent news, I put together a quick unboxing video to see what you can expect if you decide to purchase a pair.
When you finally get your hands on a pair, you'll be welcomed one of the more unique packaging designs you've probably seen for a tech product. The tube resembles a tennis ball case. Inside is a sturdy, rubberized case that also acts as a charging device for you Spectacles; the case provides four full charges. Inside you'll also find a small package that provides you step-by-step instructions on how to link your Spectacles to your Snapchat. Inside also provides a charging USB cord and a microfiber cloth.
The glasses themselves are made out of standard plastic that you'd expect from any sunglasses. To operate the sunglasses, you simply tap on the right side of your frames to start a 10-second video, tap again if you'd like to extend your video to 20 or 30 seconds, and also press and hold if you'd like to stop the recording.
I will have a more in-depth interview on my thoughts and opinions of the Spectacles in the near future, so stay tuned for that!
Have you gotten your hands on a pair? What are your thoughts? If not, are you planning on grabbing a pair?
