Qualcomm Toq smartwatch now available for pre-order, $349.99 price tag

Qualcomm Toq smartwatch

Qualcomm announced back in early September that it would be joining the ever-growing group of manufacturers that are working on a smartwatch with a device known as the Toq. The Toq features a 1.55-inch Mirasol display that Qualcomm says is “clearly visible” in sunlight and helps the watch to run for days without needing to plug in for juice. Fast-forward to today, and we’re getting near the Toq’s December 2 launch date. But Qualcomm announced today that anyone who’s interested in its smartwatch can pre-order one right now.

Qualcomm is now taking pre-orders for the black Toq, which includes the smartwatch itself as well as Qualcomm’s WiPower LE wireless charger, an AC adapter and USB cable. The entire package will set buyers back $349.99, and Qualcomm says that it expects to begin shipping units out to buyers in 1-3 weeks. Anyone interested in the white Toq will have to put their wallets away for now, as it’s currently listed as “Coming Soon.”

The Qualcomm Toq uses Bluetooth to pair with Android devices running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. Once the Toq and a user’s phone are buddy-buddy, the Toq can be used to view calls, messages and other alerts from your Android device on your wrist. While its $349.99 price tag may be a tad high for some, Qualcomm has said that the Toq is meant to be more of a demonstration of what its tech can do rather than a mainstream product that appeals to all consumers. For folks that nerd out about mobile tech like many of us do, Qualcomm’s promises of sunlight readability and multi-day battery life may make that price a bit easier to swallow. The Toq is now available for pre-order at the Qualcomm link below.

    Nice idea, to expensive, maybe they should of made a colour e-reader that connects to your phone instead.

  • aranea

    No headphones? The price would have been easier to pay if it came with the headphones that were part of the demo. At this point I’ll wait before I order one.
