Qualcomm sells its Toq smart-watch in white, ships in 1-2 months

page 1
Qualcomm has put up a white version of its $350 Toq smart-watch for a limited edition sale. Or pre-order, shall we say, as the gizmo has a shipping period of 1 to 2 months on its Amazon page. The white Toq can be had from Qualcomm's own webstore as well, although the chip-maker ships only within the USA. However, the silicon slinger is running a special promo. Apparently, if you order the white Toq from Qualcomm between Jan 27 and Feb 10, you are eligible for free shipping in two workdays. The promotion ends on Feb 10 at 9am PST. The disparity between Amazon and Qualcomm is curious, but this is the information we have.

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.
