On its website, Snap writes:

Spectacles are now more comfortable to wear with a smaller profile, and they're water resistant — so you can bring them to the beach, or your next pool party! Tap the button to record video with new and improved audio, and now, you can press and hold to take a photo! Snaps you capture will transfer to Snapchat up to four times faster, and always in HD.

The Telegraph writes that the original Spectacles product was a failure, costing the company $40 million. Only 220,000 units were sold. 

The new Spectacles sell for $150, TechCrunch reports. They can be purchased only via the company's app and website.
