So Samsung wasn’t the only one with a smartwatch announcement yesterday as Qualcomm at their Uplinq developer conference revealed Toq smartwatch. Toq (pronounced as Talk) shows Qualcomm’s prowess by using technologies like Mirasol display, WiPower LE for wireless charging and Bluetooth. Qualcomm says Toq’s colour touchscreen is always on, thanks to the Mirasol reflective display, supports wireless charging and can even manage smartphone calls, text messages etc. from the watch via AllJoyn framework.
Furthermore, Qualcomm will also release a “Premium Audio Edition” Toq that boasts dedicated tweeter and woofer for superior wide band audio and will be bundled with wireless stereo speakers.
Qualcomm hasn’t revealed the release date but is expected later this year for all devices running Android 4.0.3+.
