Qualcomm Toq goes up for pre-order for $349.99
We still don't really know much about what to expect with the Qualcomm Toq as far as functionality, apps, or compatibility; but, earlier this month Qualcomm announced that the smartwatch would be going on sale December 2nd for $349.99. If you're really excited about the Toq (and, if you are, please tell us why in the comments), Qualcomm has put it up for pre-order.

The pre-order right now is only for the black version of the watch, the white model still isn't available. The Toq is promising a Mirasol display (which is legitimately something that we're interesting to see), "multiple days of battery life", a wireless charging dock, and a buttonless interface. It has a 1.55-inch display, and weighs just 3.2 ounces. It will require Android 4.0.3 for smartphone connectivity, but Qualcomm said it is considering iOS support in the future. 

Of course, whatever is promised, $349.99 is a tough price tag to swallow for a device that still has so many question marks around it. It is more of a proof of concept for Qualcomm though, and isn't expected to find a wider market.

The clock is a straight rip-off of the Sony Smartwatch 2 and the watch probably won't be any better. But it sure is $150 more...

I liked the construction when i held it. and the display is really amazing . but it's not LED kind of amazing..
it's the true technology that is the best for human eyes.
when I look at the display of tog.. it's so smooth for the eyes to look at... that no any LED screen can match up.

Who in hell would get a smart watch AT ALL.These things serve zero needs right now and are only being produced in the vain hope that they can make mad money off it because someone suggested that Apple is hoping to do that. Why is everyone so hell bent on making this things happen when there is go chance of it ever being useful enough by itself to warrant a purchase?

I rather get Google Glass. Now if I can get a GG for less than $50, I'd definitely buy it.

Well that remains to be seen, I haven't had any experience with glass but hopefully it is as amazing as they say.

Because both of them serve different purposes.

BTW, miniaturization costs money. For the same reason a phone is costlier than a tablet with lesser specs (compare iPhone and iPad). It might be a new concept for you, but better check out.

BTW, Gear doesn't cost same as Nexus 5 "everywhere".Out at my place, Gear costs around $150 less than Nexus 5. And that is the standard rate.

Everyone understands that smartwatches aren't really what people want right now. I think i have seen one person with one since the first Sony one came out. THATS IT! But the truly sad part, is that when Apple does decide to launch one, it will sell like hot cakes. For no other reason than because Apple did it; and thats truly pathetic.

I need a Lumia smartwatch to compliment my new Lumia 1520, SPOTY... I hope Microkia is working on one.

I said I need one, not you.. If don't want one just don't buy it, but stop making yourself look like a immature fool.. It would be nice to know your age.. I'm 36. You❔

The two must have features for a smartwatch imho, All-week battery and waterproof. If only sony's watch looks like galaxy gear, it'll be perfect. Too bad it's not.

Priced Ridiculously high for a less featured watch which requires battery charging every few days. I would rather go for Kenneth cole or any other REAL branded watch for that price.
