Qualcomm enters smartwatch fray with ‘Qualcomm Toq’

Qualcomm has decided that it’s not going to sit idly by and watch as everyone else release smartwatches. Today sees the chipmaker introducing its own take on the wearable technology with the debut of the Qualcomm Toq. Details are rather light at this point; there’s nary a word of pricing or availability. Nevertheless, we do know a little bit about the Qualcomm Toq.

 

For starters, it employs a Mirasol display which is always on/active and is designed to efficiently use battery life. There are no hardware buttons to be found as Qualcomm wants this to feel like a watch should, and not a piece of foreign technology.

The Qualcomm Toq lets consumers manage smartphone calls, text messages, meeting reminders and various notifications from their wrist. A “Premium Audio Edition” will also be available and will feature the “first truly wireless stereo headphones” in that there are no wires between the headsets for listening and no wires for recharging. Connected to a smartphone (Android 4.0.3+), the Toq allows for calls to be placed using either of the headsets.
