After making Spectacles available online in the U.S. earlier this year, Snap Inc. has now launched the glasses in Europe. They are available via dedicated website, or from Snapbots landing in several cities across the continent.
Snap has announced that it is making its Spectacles available in Europe after launching an e-shop in February which brought the sunglasses to all users in the United States. The latest move makes them available to users in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. through Spectacles.com.
For the adventurous, Snap is sending over Snapbots that will start to appear in 6 cities across Europe. London is first; Then Berlin, Paris, Venice, and Barcelona. As was the case in the U.S., prospective buyers will be able to see upcoming locations 24 hours before a Snapbot arrives there. Be warned though, because Snapbots will stay in one place for around a day.
For £129.99/€149.99/$170, you get the glasses themselves, as well as the usual fare: charging case, cable, a cleaning cloth, and a Quickstart guide. You can find Spectacles in black, coral and teal.
