Qualcomm sells its Toq smart-watch in white, ships in 1-2 months
The Toq boasts some interesting technology that is yet to debut in other mobile devices. For instance, it features Qualcomm's Mirasol tech that aims to increase the display's visibility under direct sunlight while decreasing its energy consumption. It also supports wireless charging via the company's new WiPower charger, which is included in the package.
The watch lasts multiple days on a single charge. It connects via Bluetooth and only with Android smartphones running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 or later. It's managed by a dedicated Toq App, which is free to download from the Play Store.
Although its bag of tricks doesn't differ from other smart-watches in terms of functionality, the Toq seems well put together. However, at $350, its pricing is beyond what the casual market would opt for.

Smart Watches need to be priced like watches, not phones. More 100 dollar and below watches. Sony has this market if they can just advertize...

What they did right is get the charged times to last longer than 10 hours.. Yes I'm looking at you SS. I think SS got the design right on the front though.
