Qualcomm takes $50 off the price of its Toq smartwatch for CES
The Toq is equipped with a Mirasol display that offers clear viewing, even in bright sunlight. The technology also allows for longer battery life, even with an always-on display. The battery life is so impressive that Qualcomm didn't even bother designing in a power button for the device. And when it is time to recharge the cell, the smartwatch offers "hassle-free" wireless charging using Qualcomm's own WiPower LE wireless charging technology. Qualcomm says that the battery lasts for days, which is an important attribute for a smartwatch to have. The device will bring you alerts, updates and messages from your Android phone right to your wrist.
At $299.99, the Qualcomm Toq now is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Gear, despite having a longer list of features. We expect to see a large number of smartwatches launched this year, including the Apple iWatch, so this market can be quickly turned on its head. If you plan on buying a smartwatch to tide you over the next few years, you might want to wait to see how these devices evolve over the remainder of this year.
