Snap Inc. introduced the second generation of its Spectacles camera sunglasses in April, and this week, two new styles were added, with Nico and Veronica joining the aptly named Originals.

Just like the Originals model that debuted in April, Nico and Veronica can capture and quickly transfer HD-only photos and videos, are water-resistant, include dual-microphones for high quality audio capture and sell for $199, including a protective case and cable.

Snap also announced that a feature will be released later this fall enabling users to automatically curate Snaps captured via their Spectacles into Highlight Stories.

Nico and Veronica are available for purchase via in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and the U.S.

Prescription polarized lenses for all three second-generation Spectacles models are available to Snapchat users in the U.S. via Lensabl.

Snap Inc. made Spectacles 2 Originals available for purchase via Amazon in Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. in June, and later that month, it added new formats and backgrounds for exporting photos and videos.
