Literally a test run, actually as I wore them running everyday. Here is why Snapchat Spectacles are working. Really working.
1. They look and feel like regular sunglasses. This is important for the wearer to feel as comfortable as the people around them. By removing the 'camera', people are naturally their authentic selves which leads to a better video playback quality.
2. Sooo easy to use - a quick and successful bluetooth connection takes just a minute.
3. Hands free recording lets you enjoy any activity without bothering with a camera. Just push a button and check your snap feed.
This last point is especially important for me as an artist and active person. I often go for runs or hikes in beautiful areas, trips out to the ocean, etc. and taking out the camera can be burdensome when you are in the middle of an activity. The specs are a fun and cheaper way to capture memories in just an instant.
In conclusion, I recommend you purchase a pair immediately. Snap Specs show that there is still hope for wearables again after all.
