There is a good number of smartwatches to choose from in the market. The problem is picking the one that would fit your budget and lifestyle. If you are eyeing the Qualcomm Toq, you might want to read up on its pros and cons.
First of all, the Qualcomm Toq’s price tag is pegged at a whopping $350. Is it worth it? You decide. The watch’s crowning glory is its display. Some say that its a cross between a DLP and LCD. It’s perfect for e-readers because it becomes clearer when in dim light. Also, the display comes in full color.
It also has a decent battery life. It can last for a couple of days. Recharging your Toq is also interesting since it comes with a unique charging stand.
As for the cons, it seems that the Toq isn’t compatible with iOS, so iPhone users can tick this off of their list of choices. It also has a questionable design that could’ve been executed in a better way. Also, its band cannot be replaced. This could serve as a problem in the long run.
The Chinese have a knack for gadgets. This is why a number of electronics are being sold in its markets. One can even find smartwatches among the gadgets on display. Here is one Chinese creation that’s worth noting:
Qualcomm’s creation, the Mirasol display, has made its debut on the Appscomm Fashioncomm A1. It is the first smartwatch to ever come equipped with it. If you are familiar with the Qualcomm Toq’s prototype, then you’ll know what to expect. It features a 1.55-inch MEMS panel. Aside from a GSM chipset, the smartwatch also allows users to make and receive calls through it.
The A1 also comes with a camera that can be used to take photos and record video clips. It also features Bluetooth connectivity and a 190-hour stand-by time.
The Toq was produced by Qualcomm. It made its debut in the market last December 2013. The official announcement was made during the company’s Upling event. It is pronounced as “talk.”
The smartwatch is compatible with smartphones that run on Android 4.0 or higher. Like most devices of its kind, users will be able to check texts, emails, calls and other notifications through it. It runs on Qualcomm’s very own operating system.
The Toq sports a 1.55 inch Mirasol display. The screen remains clear even in direct sunlight. This is similar to the screens of E Ink ereaders. It also has a backlight that comes in handy under dim light or in the absence of an external light source. It has a 200 MHz Cortex-M3 microcontroller. Its battery life can last for up to five days. Charging is convenient because it can be done wirelessly through the Qualcomm WiPower box.
