Snap, the company of Snapchat, wants you to meet Nico and Veronica.  Snap introducing two new styles of Spectacles 2 on Wednesday.

The company says both designs come in black-on-black with polarized lenses, combining form and function to create a hands-free camera.

Nico and Veronica capture up to 70 videos or hundreds of photos on a single charge - then transfer them to your phone, wirelessly.   The glasses are also water resistant, so you can take them with you almost anywhere!

It was reported in March that Snap was working on new versions of Spectacles. It was rumored the new models could have dual cameras, GPS and other high-end features, but those aren't included in Nico and Veronica.

Snap writing online that it will roll out a new Snapchat feature that automatically makes your Spectacles Snaps into a single Highlight story.  Highlight Stories will make it faster and easier to find your favorite moments and share them with friends after a full day of Snapping.

At $199 the shades also have black protective cases instead of the bright yellow charging case, meaning you'll only be able to power them with the included charging cable.

Unlike with the original spectacles, you won't have to queue up at a vending machine to snag a pair.  They're available online today in initial limited quantities, and will also be coming to Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom stores in the U.S., in the coming months.
