Snap releases two new styles for Spectacles 2

Snap, the parent company of the Snapchat app, released two new styles for Spectacles 2 named Veronica and Nico on its online store that aim to make the video-recording and picture-taking devices look like normal eyewear. The Snap Spectacles 2, which was unveiled in April, may have turned off some customers due to their fancy frames and wild colour options. The new designs, however, may make them reconsider.Veronica and Nico come with black frames and polarised black lenses. Instead of the chunky yellow case that comes with the earlier versions of the Spectacles 2, the new styles come with a slimmer, semi-soft black case.
This fall, the Veronica and Nico styles will be sold in some Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus retail stores in the United States, as well as in a variety of retailers in Europe. In addition, Lensabl will continue allowing customers to order prescription lenses for the new Spectacles 2 models.
In exchange for the more traditional look, the new Spectacles 2 designs are carrying a price tag of $200, which is $50 more than the $150 price tag of the original styles.
Aside from these changes, the new Spectacles 2 will retain the functions of the earlier versions. They are water resistant, allow exporting in non-circular formats, and are capable of taking photos in addition to videos, unlike their predecessors. The Spectacles 2 can record up to 70 videos or hundreds of photos in a single charge.
