How Snapchat Spectacles Works?

Spectacles are sunglasses with an integrated video camera that makes it easy to create Memories. These Snapchat Spectacles or sunglasses, records videos in 10-second increments, are expected to be available for sale sometime "soon." Snap Inc., as the company is now called, says it will be producing the glasses in small quantities.

Snapchat Spectacles are one of the smallest wireless video cameras in the world, capable of taking a day’s worth of Snaps on a single charge, integrated it seamlessly into a fun pair of sunglasses – available in 3 different colors.

Snapchat Spectacles connects directly to Snapchat via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transfer your Memories directly into the app in a brand new circular video format.

Circular video plays full screen on any device, in any orientation, and captures the human perspective with a 115 degree field of view.
