Say hello to the second generation of Narrative's wearable camera

It's been more than a year since the first generation of Narrative's lifelogging camera made its debut, which means that it's high time for the company to unveil a sequel. It's here at CES that we finally get to see what it's been working on, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that nothing much has changed this time out. Thankfully, the bulk of the changes have been below the surface, so if you'd like to learn more about the imaginatively named Narrative Clip 2, read on.

Second on the list is image quality, and the 5-megapixel sensor from the original has been replaced with a 90-degree, 8-megapixel unit that the company promises offers much better low-light performance. Finally, whereas the original was a USB-only affair, the new model gains WiFi and Bluetooth, enabling you to sync images with your phone and the company's online service. Speaking of which, while the original Narrative was very much about supplying images for a private journal, the company is hoping that its new social layer will make everything much more, er, social.

The Narrative Clip 2 will begin shipping at some point in 2015 in a choice of black, white or red for $199, but if that's a little too rich for your blood, the company is keeping the original around, knocking the price down to $149. It's not just to clear the existing stocks, either, as Källström pledges to continue manufacturing the earlier device for as long as there's demand.
