Snapchat Begins Online Sales For $130 ‘Spectacles’ Sunglasses

When Snapchat first unveiled their first physical device known as ‘Spectacles,' it wasn't clear whether the product was merely a fun side project or a serious attempt at entering the hardware market.

After a few months of successful sales within their NYC pop-up store and ‘Snapbot' vending which were surprisingly placed within various locations within major cities, the company has taken a new approach.

They have opened online sales to all with one stipulation: sales are only open to US buyers at this time. While this is unfortunate for prospective buyers who reside in another country, it is good news for anyone who has wanted to snag a pair but doesn't live anywhere close to a Snapbot location.

Through the online store, you have the option to choose from the three colors: Coral, Black or Teal. Each pair sells for $129.99 with $5.99 shipping with the first shipment expected to roll out within 2-4 weeks.

All orders include the Spectacles unit as well as a charging case and cable. Existing owners who need a replacement cable or case can now buy from the Snap store versus resorting to Amazon.

Anyone interested in picking up a pair can place their order via this link, although we suggest doing so soon as they will likely sell out.
