Snap has launched Spectacles 3 today 14/11/2019 with a new refreshed sleek design. This is the third generation Spectacles from Snap, previously the Spectacles 1 was really appreciated by Snapchat fans and made a good sell which made the company to manufacture even more but they never sold the entire manufactured Spectacles 1 which cost them the loss of 40 million dollars. When second-generation Spectacles 2 arrived, it made a quiet buzz because it came with water-proof ability and was able to snap still photos through the camera that was attached to it. Even though only Snapchat fans appreciated the product whereas others didn’t care, so the sales were not good as expected. This time around Snap has launched its third generation Spectacles 3 with more improvements, added features, and a refreshed design.

Design & Build
Snap claims that Spectacles 3 design is forwarded towards fashionable and creative audiences, not just for Snapchat users and its fans. Spectacles 2 looked like a toy and had a lot of complains were collected by its buyers, so this time Snap listened to its audiences and used refreshed new polarized the design and made it serious. The design feels as if a real spectacle has been used on top of addition to all the functioning components for Spectacles 3. It also a stainless steel frame that may not make every user feel comfortable but looks very stylish and fashionable at the same time. We can see a giant steel bar running from one side to another on top of the spectacle may feel very unusual to some audiences but very unique to other audiences.
The thing that can be noticed at first glance in the design is its addition to the second HD camera. The second-generation Spectacles 2 only had one camera but Spectacles 3 comes with two cameras which makes it a more featured pack product. Camera is fitted on the side edge of the Spectacles 3 respectively one at the left and another and right. This addition to the second camera might be Snap’s trump card.
