Snapchat recently released Spectacles 2, an updated version of its original image and video-capturing glasses. The upgraded spectacles are available in two styles, designed with a water resistant frame, and will include a soft-shell black case for optimizable storage and protection. The styles each have a traditional sunglass look, to lend the look and feel of standard shades while providing enhanced features.

The lenses from both of these styles are polarized. This will make it more convenient and useful for consumers to wear them anytime, anywhere to better capture their moments. Snapchat also informed consumers that its partner, Lensabl, will be giving customers the opportunity to order prescription lenses for Spectacles 2.

Snapchat hopes that these upgrades will maximize users’ ability to capture images and videos, and share them on social media. Spectacles 2 will be available for purchase through select Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom stores, and in various retailers in Europe.
