Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, launched its first hardware product last year in the form of shades called Spectacles. They have an integrated camera that makes it very easy to Snapchat all day.
The company only released the device in limited quantities at first and that was through pop-up vending machines. People waited in long lines to get their hands on them. Now that the hype has died down, Snap is finally selling the Spectacles on Amazon, making it easier than ever to get them.
Snap was selling Spectacles through the vending machines for quite some time before allowing customers to order them online directly. And now it is easier to purchase them. I guess now we see just how many they can sell. All three colors: black, coral, and teal are available for $129.99 on Amazon. They’re eligible for next-day delivery too. Snap is selling them directly while orders are fulfilled by Amazon.
Snap doesn’t seem to have sold that many units. I mean they were hard to get. Pop up vending machines were not a great plan to move many units. A report last quarter suggested that Snap had only sold around 60,000 units. Now they should sell more.
