0. phoneArena 04 Sep 2013, 17:21 posted on

While we're not completely sold that this first wave of smartwatches will really be worth our time, it's interesting to see how things will evolve from here. And, a very interesting competitor is one that we didn't expect: Qualcomm, which has announced its Toq smartwatch. This is a Qualcomm product all the way through, and the most important part of that is the display: a Mirasol display...

The UI looks ugly. Hope they refine that.

Don't like the look of the hone but days without charge is what SS should have offered.

Ooohhh, a mirasol display. It's about time they got on the market. With days of battery life this could actually be useful. Really hope that isnt the UI though....

why are the first major smart watches of the gate in 4:3 aspect ratio. I would have hoped one of the big players would have been a bit more bold and released a version in landscape/16:9 ratio.

What are you watching movies on your watch? If not then don't worry about the aspect ratio. 4:3 does not mean low resolution like a lot of people think it does, 4:3 is better for a square shaped screen for several reasons. the closest to 1080p 4:3 that is common is 1600x1200.

4:3 is just fine for a smartwatch. Although I would like to see a 16:10 here and there.
