Tech and social media company Snap Inc. has unveiled its updated version of Spectacles, the popular HD-camera sunglasses that are compatible with the brand’s Snapchat app.

The new shades seem to rectify problems with their predecessors while also introducing some additional features. According to Snap’s release, the new wearable has a smaller profile, increasing comfort for the user, and is now waterproof, making it perfect for the summertime activities like the beach or pool. Even more, wearers can now snap a picture by pressing and holding a button on the glasses’ front.

The product changes were inspired heavily by consumer recommendations. According to Snap, the brand wanted Spectacles to be “the simplest and easiest way to make memories from your point of view, and we appreciate all of your thoughtful feedback—many of these improvements were inspired by you!”

The glasses are available on the company’s site for $149.99.
