The new Snapchat Spectacles are here, and they look like normal sunglasses

By | 5th September 2018

Time to go on a Snapstreak.

Snapchat Spectacles have always been neat, but they're about to get a whole lot cooler. Snap just rolled out two new styles of Snapchat Spectacles, called Veronica and Nico.

These feature the same things as the Spectacles 2 did. They basically record 10-second clips of video, which you can upload to your Snapchat account. You can also capture a photo with 'em. They're great for recording events, adventures, vlogs, or just your day-to-day life. There's a light to indicate when they're recording so you're not a super-creep, and there are a few different effects the lenses can lend to your photos and videos. They're water-resistant, and they sync wirelessly with Snapchat when your phone is nearby.

The one drawback with Snapchat Spectacles has always been the design. They weren't exactly fashionable, they were heavy, and they were very obviously Snapchat Specs. The new styles look like traditional sunglasses, and the lenses are polarized too. Even the charging case is more nondescript. Veronica and Nico sell for $199.99. You can get them at some Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus stores or order them online via Snapchat.
