Qualcomm has announced that it will start selling Toq smartwatch beginning December 2 on toq.qualcomm.com. The smartwatch has been priced at $349.99, which is $50 more than Galaxy Gear’s $300 price-tag.
According to Qualcomm, Toq works with all Android smartphones powered by Android 4.0.3 and above but it will give the best performance with smartphones running Android 4.3.
Qualcomm Toq features Mirasol display and can you accept/reject calls, view text messages and meeting alerts, and selectively receive notifications from smartphones via Toq.
“The Toq smartwatch showcases key Qualcomm innovations, such as Mirasol always on low power display, AllJoyn interactions and WiPower LE wireless charging, that will define the emerging wearable category,” said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer of Qualcomm.
“Like a traditional watch, Toq displays information at a glance with no on/off switch. And paired with a smartphone to receive notifications and content, it allows the watch to seamlessly merge our physical and digital lives. Leveraging these and other industry-leading technologies, we and our partners will enable new product opportunities and consumer experiences,” Qualcomm notes in a press release.
