Qualcomm Toq Smartwatch Now Available for Pre-order, Still Listed at $349.99

Back on November 18, Qualcomm announced that the Toq smartwatch would officially become available on December 2 for the price of $349. The price blew some people out of the water, but Qualcomm seems quite set on that price point. This morning, they have opened up pre-orders for the device, which will allow you to secure your place as one of the first adopters of the Toq. 

For those not familiar with Qualcomm’s take on wearables, the Toq features a Mirasol display that allows the device to be seen easily in bright sunlight, but also last for days without a charge. The Toq has no buttons, shows information you need at a glance, is always ready for your interaction, can charge wirelessly, and probably does more useful tasks than the Samsung Galaxy Gear out of the box.

Our community seems to have already said “no” to the price, but that’s not too surprising.

    I’m going to give the Sony Smartwatch 2 a try. I tried out the Galaxy Gear, but I need a truly waterproof watch given my job at a hospital where I have to wash my hands like 50 times a day and the Gear was getting wet. Also the Gear band irritated my wrist. It’s really rigid in shape and it just wasn’t working for me.

    Samsung needs to make a sibling that ditches the camera and speaker phone options, thus reverting the wristband to a non-rigid and more normal and comfortable wristband, all while lowering the cost of the device to $200. That’s what I want. And that’s pretty much the Sony Smartwatch 2.

    Smartwatches I’m my eyes have about as much purpose as male nipples. Pass

    I’ll consider it if it has a Snapdragon 800 or higher powering it. Quad-core watch, yo! /Nerd

  • Icehunter

    Considering I can get a Nexus 5 for the same money, I’ll pass.

      Another SmartWatch to launch this week is the Z-Watch from SmartQ Devices — SmartQ won a distinguished 2013 CTIA E-Tech Award for the world’s first tablet with a built in DLP projector and now offers an innovative smartwatch that compares to Sony’s Smart Watch 2 and the Galaxy Smart watch ($200-$300) but is priced about the same as the Pebble Watch ($150).

      The new Smart Q Z-Watch is priced at $155 and has one of the highest screen resolutions and largest battery capacities available (300 mAh), runs on Android O/S and works to sync with phones with Android 4.0 and higher, and features an energy efficient processor running at a full 1GHz (Sony & Pebble Watch in comparison run at less than 200 MHz).

      One U.S.source the Z-Watch is available through is — T ab l e t Sp r i nt – and has details on this new product as well as a few other new tech items, including a Windows Tablet for $299 to launch next week, the Vido W11 – which features the new Intel BayTrail processor and a 10-inch HD display.

    “Still listed at $349.99” and still too expensive… although I do want one.

  • WCM3

    This watch picture took up my ENTIRE screen. No me gusta…

    • Don’t worry, just playing around with the image sizes. Sorry for that. Fixed 🙂

      • WCM3

        you gave me a heart attack. lol

        • It gave ME a heart attack lol

        • Pierito

          He can’t fix that lol

  • rthvk

    I love my Pebble.

  • Thomas

    If people aren’t buying the Gear at $299, why would they pay $349 for this?

    • feztheforeigner

      Although still arguably overpriced, because it’s a better watch.

      • crazed_z06

        How do you know it’s better? The features havent even been detailed anywhere..

        • feztheforeigner

          They announced all the details and features during their announcement. I believe it was on the same day as the Galaxy Gear.

          • crazed_z06

            Ahh OK.. must have missed it. I wouldnt mind a Galaxy Gear cause I like gadgets, but it’s a bit too expensive..

      • michael arazan

        It would be cheaper to strap on a chromebook to your wrist
