Snap today announced a new generation of its Spectacles camera sunglasses that adds still photo capabilities and water resistance. The only downside? At $150, they are $20 more expensive than the previous version.
Oh, and they still look ridiculous.
“Spectacles are now more comfortable to wear with a smaller profile, and they’re water resistant,” the Snap announcement explains. “Tap the button to record video with new and improved audio, and now, you can press and hold to take a photo! Snaps you capture will transfer to Snapchat up to four times faster, and always in HD.”
The new Spectacles are touted as “hands-free,” but you must, of course, use your hand to begin recording; it’s not voice-activated. They are water resistant down to one meter for 30 minutes, and can capture up to 70 videos on a single charge. The included case will charge the glasses up to four times.
