On a day where Samsung Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 Livestream [Watch It Here!] managed to get all the attention, Qualcomm Inc. #-Link-Snipped-# its #-Link-Snipped-#smartwatch. Yes, if you are wondering it’s pronounced as ‘talk’. Qualcomm has tried to make this smartwatch an edge over the competition by promising battery life of ‘days’ or as #-Link-Snipped-# has managed to pinpoint that it can run for three to five days on a single charge. The reason for this extended battery life has been attributed to the company’s Mirasol display technology which involves the use of interferometric modulator display for better sunlight legibility. In terms of design, #-Link-Snipped-# says that the battery is not in the watch itself but on the clasp. The company takes pride in announcing the fact that the smartwatch does not have even a single button and it remains on all the time. The price tag of $300 might sound a little outrageous but read on to know why the product is worth your every penny.


The smartwatch is charged wirelessly, all you have to do is slip in the Toq smartwatch into its case and it will recharge itself. With this smartwatch the company throws in a Bluetooth headset as well which too can be recharged in the same way as the watch. If you are an audiophile, you would love to know that there is “Premium Audio Edition” in which you get two wireless Bluetooth earphones for a truly wireless stereo audio experience.

Toq will also give you weather information along with stock quotes.

    The specs are good, but I feel the price is high, having an OS like Android ICS make it useful but someone can't just do the things smoothly as in a phone or tab.
