Qualcomm enters smartwatch fray with Toq wearable device

updated 03:31 pm EDT, Wed September 4, 2013

Toq compatible with Android 4.0.2 and up, available later in 2013

Qualcomm Connected Experiences, a division of Qualcomm, today announced that it will release a smartwatch sometime in the fourth quarter of 2013. Designed to serve as a second display to a smartphone, the Qualcomm Toq ('talk') smartwatch will feature the new Qualcomm Mirasol display technology, a reflective, low-power display that enables an always-on viewing experience, wireless charging by Qualcomm WiPower LE technology, and stereo Bluetooth audio, all while offering its wearer long battery life with seamless connectivity to their smartphone.

With Toq, consumers will be able to manage smartphone calls, text messages, meeting reminders and various notifications from the wrist. Developers also will be able to tap into Qualcomm Innovation Center's AllJoyn framework to send program notifications to the smartwatch through the Qualcomm Toq app, which supports the AllJoyn Notification Services Framework.

Qualcomm will continue adding functionality to the Toq through software upgrades, including integration with Qualcomm Life's 2net platform and the recently-announced 2net Mobile software. Toq provides participants of the 2net ecosystem the opportunity to deliver new, compelling ways for consumer to manage their health.

Toq also will be made available in a "Premium Audio Edition" that features the first truly wireless stereo headphones. The Toq Premium Audio Edition features high quality stereo sound with a dedicated tweeter and woofer for superior wide-band audio. Calls can be placed with the smartphone using either of the headsets.

At launch, Toq will be compatible with Android 4.0.3 and above mobile devices. No pricing is currently available for the device.
