Qualcomm Knocks $50 Off Toq Smartwatch To Celebrate CES
Qualcomm is celebrating this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas by knocking $50 off its Android-comptible Toq smartwatch. For this week only, the device will sell for $299.99 as opposed to $349.99, and you can buy it directly from Qualcomm or through Amazon.
The Toq is Qualcomm’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Gear and Sony’s SmartWatch 2. It connects to your Android-powered smartphone via Bluetooth to bring notifications to your wrist, and it runs a number of custom apps that bring you the weather, stocks, your calendar, and let you control your music.
You can even make calls on it, and its battery promises to last “multiple days” on a single charge.
Toq also offers Qualcomm’s Mirasol display technology, which lets you use the device in direct sunlight and still get a clear view of its screen. It syncs with a companion app available for free from Google Play, and charges wirelessly using Qualcomm’s WiPower LE technology.
The new $299 price tag puts the Toq right in line with the Galaxy Gear, but it’s still significantly more than a Pebble.
