Whether customers will take to Snapchat's new Spectacles more than the first-generation model, however, is anyone's guess. Users will still need to import photos and videos from their "Memories", connect their device to a WiFi network, and wait for their content to download.

Spectacles can record 10-second video snippets, which are created to approximate one's natural field of vision.

Snap also made some notable improvements to the hardware, with Snaps transferring to Snapchat up for four times faster than they did on the original Spectacles, and a second microphone to capture the voice of the person wearing the glasses. Originally launched in September 2016, the first-generation Spectacles were not a financial success for Snap.

He said the company will cut $5 billion from capital spending from 2019 to 2022, reducing it from $34 billion to $29 billion. In fact, it looks as though the Mustang and an upcoming Focus Active crossover are the only cars that will survive the cuts.

Apart from the major additions which include water resistance and still photos, according to Snap has also gone ahead and improved the audio reception capabilities on the new sunglasses.

That first version also caused the company to take a almost $40-million writedown in the third quarter due to excess inventory.

The company's first edition of the glasses led Snap to take a $40m write down for unsold stock, as its shares plunged by more than 16 per cent in after-hours trading last November.

Chandrachud said its "real concern" was to see that a fair trial was conducted. The bench said that any fault by lawyers will be dealt separately.

Spectacles aren't available on Amazon at this time and it's unclear whether they will be. The temple area of the frame, which houses the bulk of the electronics, is around one third smaller, while the charging case is more than 20 per cent smaller.

The Spectacles are now water-resistant in shallow water as well. After selling 220,000, Snap, Inc., the parent company of Snapchat, reported a $40 million write-down in November on unsold inventory. The matte plastic on the front has been swapped out for a more subdued clear finish and all of the three colors (Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire) come with two lens styles to choose from. A prescription and polarized version will be offered later.

One of the most mighty features is that now you can even take videos and photos underwater, glasses can survive up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
