Qualcomm is already accepting pre-orders for their Toq smartwatch
The device is bragging with Qualcomm’s new Misarol display technology
Last week Qualcomm unveiled the pricing of its upcoming smartwatch to be $350. The device was announced for the first time in September during the company’s LINQ developer conference and it came clear that Qualcomm will get into the smartwatch business. Well, aren’t they all? Samsung released their Galaxy Gear, ZTE, HTC and Motorola are working their watches as well, and not to mention the experimental Neptune Pine that is on its way. So if you’re searching for a brand new smartwatch to match your phone, Qualcomm might have what you need and it will be available pretty soon.
Qualcomm Toq smartwatch is already accepting pre-orders. The device is bragging with Qualcom’s new Misarol display technology that was unveiled two months ago and it appears the Qualcomm have been working really hard to bring the watch so soon. Of course, since this is a pre-order, you’ll need to wait few weeks before it starts shipping, so the Toq smartwatch will be probably available in early December as promised. Either way the online Qualcomm store expects to ship all pre-ordered watches between one and three weeks. No changes about the pricing have been made and the device costs the recently announced $349, so there’s no surprise here. In addition, the Toq actually ships with a charger in the package.
The smartwatch has a Qualcomm Misarol technology 1.55-inch display with a capacitive touch screen and density of 222ppi and it requires Android 4.0.3 Jelly Bean and later. One of the highlights about the display is that it’s readable in direct sunlight. Qualcomm Toq features a 240mAh battery with magnetic resonance charging that will prologue the battery life to multiple days between charges. The smartwatch also includes Bluetooth 3.0, AllJoyn as well as vibration and airplane mode. The Toq also supports wireless charging and here’s another highlight- the watch can seamlessly receive alerts, messages and everything straight from your Android smartphone.
Meanwhile, other details are the band supporting wrist sizes up to 8.7-inches and it can support an overall weight of 3.2 ounces.
