  • If you have made sure the battery is full and bluetooth is active but your Spectacles still not pairing, you can try to force Bluetooth pairing mode by pressing and holding the button on your Spectacles for seven seconds, then try to pair it again via your Snapchat app on your phone.
  • If force Bluetooth pairing mode does not give any changes, try to soft reset the Spectacles. Press and hold the button on your Spectacles for 50 seconds. The reset is in progress when you see a light sequence of three dots moving around the LED light. After that, try to pairing again.

After 10 seconds, press the button once more, but do not hold it, just a single tap. A light sequence will appear on the glasses, with the small dots moving around the LED light and filling up dots as the reset progresses. After a hard reset, all images or videos stored in Spectacles will be lost.

  1. I was so frustrated for days and finally found a fix after i couldn’t pair even after a hard reset. Apparently on iPhone there is an option to not allow new connections. So when i forgot my spectacles and tried to pair again and again it wouldn’t work. When i went to Bluetooth settings it happened to say “would you like to connect to new devices” and mentioned something about dashboard options. This wasn’t always visible but finally did the trick and they work again FINALLY. Such a simple fix, figured it was worth a share.
