Four months after going on sale online in the U.S., Snapchat Spectacles have finally landed in Europe.

The glasses cost £129.99 in the U.K. and €149.99 elsewhere, and they’re available from popup Snapbot vending machines as well as the Spectacles website.

Unveiled in 2016, Spectacles are the ultimate sunglasses for Snapchat addicts. They look a lot like a regular pair of sunglasses, but a camera built into their frame lets you record videos or take photos without having to pull out your smartphone.

The moments you capture are automatically saved to your Snapchat Memories, and can later be uploaded to your story or sent directly to other users. Spectacles charge wirelessly in the included case and run for around a day in between charges.

When they first went on sale, Spectacles were difficult to obtain; you could only buy them from popup vending machines that appeared randomly in major cities throughout the U.S. Back in February, Snap made them more accessible through its online store.

Now those in Europe can finally get their hands on them, too. Spectacles are on sale today and shipping to customers in  Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, and the U.K.

Visit to order yours, or lookout for Snap’s popup vending machines in a city near you.
