There's 4GB of storage on board letting you store up to 150 videos or 3,000 photos.

Snapchat maker Snap has unveiled new Spectacles that the company says will be more comfortable to wear - and more capable. They will be available in three colors, Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire. But that hasn't stopped Snap from releasing a new version of the wearable, which comes with some notable upgrades over its predecessor. Considering its new and refined features $20 more wouldn't be a trouble here. They provide a hands-free sort of camera operation with the ability to quickly take pictures or video without needing to operate another device such as a camera or a cellphone. This time, they can also take still photos - with a 1642 pixel resolution, 50% higher than the videos shot by the previous version - and they can shoot underwater. There's no option in capturing video and images in standard quality.

Users can also press and hold the left button to take a still photograph. 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.

'Smallville' actress Allison Mack released on more than $6.5 million bond
He also said that Mack and her " Smallville " co-star, Kristin Kreuk , were used as "poster girls for normalizing the group". A federal judge agreed to release Mack, who was arrested last week , on $ 5 million bond and place her under home detention.

I enjoyed the heck out of the first Spectacles when I got my hands on them a year ago, but that enjoyment quickly faded after just a few weeks thanks to the cheap build and ungodly slow transfers to my phone. The case is smaller as well, making the overall footprint of the Snapchat Spectacles 2 much smaller in general - feeling much more like a natural pair of glasses than a camera sitting on your face.

The Spectacles are available from today in the US, Canada and France exclusively at Spectacles.com priced at £149.99 (includes charging case and cable). The potential was too alluring to pass up, and so rather than give up on the project altogether, Snap talked to its consumers and employees alike to see what went wrong the first time around and how the next Spectacles could succeed. It is important to note that depending on a customer's vision needs, prescription lenses can double the price of the Spectacles.
