The Snapchat Spectacles, everyone’s favorite glasses that can take photos and video, are now available from everyone’s favorite online retailer, Amazon. Not only that, but there new Snapchat Spectacles colors available as well. This should all come as welcome news for Snapchat users who have been itching to get their hands on a pair of the highly coveted glasses.
The new Snapchat Spectacles colors now brings their stable of offerings to 3 with teal, coral, and black. Availability has really changed for Snapchat Spectacles since their launch. Remember when the glasses were only available from popup shops with a bright yellow vending machine where people would line up for hours just to get the chance to buy a pair? Those that were lucky enough to get a pair were making some serious money on eBay with the $130 glasses selling for nearly $1,000 on the popular bidding site. Needless to say, demand for Snapchat Spectacles was high.
Things have changed since then. New Snapchat Spectacles colors are available and getting a pair is as simple as logging into your Amazon account. That’s much more appealing than paying a flipper $1,000 on eBay. Of course, the initial launch was more of a marketing stunt than it was a money-making opportunity. Snapchat showed off their new product, got people excited, gauged the interest of the public, and now appear to be rolling out Snapchat Spectacles to a much larger audience across several retail channels.

So what’s all the hype about? Why do people want to get their hands on a pair of Snapchat Spectacles so much? Here are some of the major features:
- Record your perspective with the touch of a button
- Record for 10, 20, or 30 seconds at a time
- Connect over WiFi and upload video in HD to your smartphone
- Comes with charging case that can recharge Snapchat Spectacles 4 times
If you’re a dedicated Snapchat user than grabbing a pair of Spectacles is a great way to take your story to the next level. I’ll be honest, I didn’t see why people were so hyped about Snapchat Spectacles until I saw some Snaps from a friend who was riding his motorcycle through the mountains. Now, I think the glasses are one of the coolest tech products out there. And, at only $130, that’s pretty good value for such an in-demand product. Plus, in case you need a pair for every outfit, the new Snapchat Spectacles colors have you covered.
The Google Glass inspired Snapchat Spectacles are also great for parties and other events where you don’t want to be reaching for your phone a whole bunch of times. Tap the button at the top of the glasses, capture a Snap, and keep on going with whatever you were doing. Hopefully, with Snapchat Spectacles being available on Amazon, we will get more and more awesome Snapchat content from our friends.
It’s always great to see when a company is trying new things to innovate. Since their battle with Instagram has been getting more and more intense, Snapchat Spectacles are a great piece of hardware that can set Snapchat apart from their competition. It will be interesting to see if the wider availability and new Snapchat Spectacles colors will help drive up sales numbers for Snapchat’s first piece of hardware. The company has said that, despite all of the hype, only 60,000 pairs of Snapchat Spectacles were sold last quarter. Of course, this isn’t their main offering so that shouldn’t be a huge shock but I’m sure the company would love to be selling many, many more Spectacles. What do you think? Will you grab a pair of Snapchat Spectacles off Amazon?
