The difference between the Snapchat Spectacles and the Google Glass is that they are so much cheaper. The main purpose of the Spectacles is to capture your daily adventures while you're on the go - all from your point of view!

Here's a few things you need to know about the Snapchat Spectacles...

What are Snapchat Spectacles?

In October this year, Snapchat said they would be releasing connected sunglasses. The Spectacles have the awesome feature of recording videos and then saving them to your memories - all from your face! How cool is it to be able to take videos in the same way that humans actually see the world. 

How do Snapchat Spectacles work?

Apparently, the Snapchat Spectacles are reallt easy to use. Just press the button and begin recording.

Once you've pressed the button, it will stop recording the video after 10 seconds - tap it again and you can record another 10 seconds. All in all, you can record up to 30 seconds. To show others you are recording, there is a light on the outside of the Spectacles.

Do you have an iPhone? Don't stress, the Spectacles work with both Android and iOS devices. Once you've recorded a cool video, play it back and see the circle format that it is in, this is meant to replicate the video in a way that makes it look like it's being viewed from human eyes.

How long will Snapchat Spectacles' battery last?

Apparently, the Spectacles have a battery that will last you about a day. The light in the corner will act as a battery indicator that you can tap twice to see how much battery power is left. The nifty case that the Spectacles come in doubles as a charging case.

How much do Snapchat Spectacles cost?

The glasses cost $129.99 (about R1800.00), come in one size, and are available in three colours: black, teal, and coral.
