After the Snap Inc. introduced their product Spectacles, there was a lot of unsold pairs. The previous version of these glasses, released in 2016, did not go over so well for the company, which sold only 150,000 units and may have been left with hundreds of thousands of unsold devices.
These second-generation Spectacles possess somewhat similar design to that of the version one but they simply feel more practical and convenient.
Some would say its about to make the same mistake again, but its clear Snap still hasn't given up on its failed Spectacles idea.
Finally, the new Spectacles (as well as the case) are water-resistant, which means you can dive in the pool or lay on the beach without worrying about them shorting out.
Like the first model, the Spectacles can take video in short 10-second increments, recording in a circular format which can be viewed in the Snapchat app or exported for other uses. Launching last July at a price of £129.99, the sunglasses came with an embedded video camera that would record ten-second snippets when pressed.

Snapchat has expected larger sales of the spectacles V1 due to which later they have to suffer a great amount of loss.
There are three frame colors to choose from, each of which offers two distinct lens colors: Black frames comes with Moonlight and Eclipse lens colors, Ruby frames offer Daybreak and Sunset lens options, and the Sapphire frames have Twilight and Midnight lens colors. Videos see a resolution bump of 25% to 1216 x 1216 and photos are captured at 1642 x 1642.
That first version also caused the company to take a almost $40-million writedown in the third quarter due to excess inventory.
Design-wise, the glasses are now slimmer (30% smaller) and more comfortable. For the first time, through a partnership with Lensabl users can order Spectacles with prescription lenses.
If Snapchat is truly to pull off the Spectacles successfully, they may finally see a profitable quarter after losing $720 million past year.
