Many customers complained about the first generation that they could only hear the person who was wearing the Spectacles, but no one else in the videos.

The new Spectacles go on sale today in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and France, and they will come to other parts of Europe May 3. They are also water-resistant, so you can wear them in the pool.

Meantime, we should probably also keep watch for photos of Kylie Jenner wearing the new Spectacles. It syncs with your phone by just using Bluetooth and the videos/images transfer is now 4 times faster compared to the old version of spectacles. Although wearers will not be able to take them very deep (only about 1 meter) but they'll be fine for swimming near the surface for around 30 minutes at a time. That price includes the charging case (which is now more compact) and a cable. Videos recorded will be in 1216 x 1216 resolution while photos are captured in 1642 x 1642 pixels.

And yes, that's the other big change: Spectacles are no longer an elusive piece of tech that sent journalists and Snapchat fans running around the country.

The new Snap Spectacles are the second generation of the company's wearable.

Similarly, the Google Glass smart spectacles, launched in 2013, famously earned its wearers the sobriquet "Glasshole", and the company eventually stopped producing the device in 2015. They have a similar design to the original pair, which means you'll still have the single camera on the right side, and the light indicator to tell everyone around you that you're recording. As before, the glasses charge through their carry case.

If you already own a pair of Spectacles, will you be upgrading to the new version? A prescription and polarized version will be offered later. Three new colors are available, onyx, ruby, and sapphire, with two different lenses per color variant.

Snap has also added a second microphone, which the company says should help increase overall audio capture quality, particularly when it comes to capturing dialogue. Now again Snapchat is trying their luck in the spectacles department by launching the V2 of the Spectacles.
