The arm race has just gotten started, but the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch has a distinctive edge: It makes your most important information more visible than the rest.

It’s the only color smartwatch whose display features crisp, clear images, even in the brightest daylight. The larger surface and color touchscreen display is always on and active for days between charges.

With the Qualcomm Toq, you can leave your smartphone in your pocket or purse. The Toq receives instant updates from your smartphone via Bluetooth wireless. With a flick of the wrist, the device displays notifications for calls, texts, email and more. Using Qualcomm's own AllJoyn technology, the Toq does run its own apps. But the smartwatch is meant to sync with Android smartphones and can be customized to display just the information you need.

No More “On" Button

Watches don’t have “on-off” buttons, nor does the Toq smartwatch. Its screen is always on and always ready to go, giving you your key information with just a glance.

Now you can stay current without reaching into your pocket or purse. No more scrolling through notifications and checking your smartphone hundreds of times a day.

The Qualcomm runs its own apps and syncs with Android phones. The Qualcomm runs its own apps and syncs with Android phones.

The stunning graphics are made possible by the Qualcomm Mirasol reflective display. Instead of using a typical backlit display found in other smartwatches and some tablet computers, sensors in the watch use ambient light around it so you can see your screen anywhere. If it’s too dark, a double tap on the wristband above the face of the Toq turns it on.

The Qualcomm Mirasol display makes the Toq the first smartwatch to use micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS)-based Interferometric Modulation (IMOD) technology. This makes the display experience similar to a high-definition television screen. The bottom line: You won’t battle the sun to see your important information.

And where other displays gulp power, the Toq runs on a low-power 200MHz Cortex M3 processor. This means the Toq can be constantly on and active for longer between charges.

Get A Charge—Wirelessly

The Qualcomm Toq is also innovative in its wireless charging system. Using Qualcomm WiPower LE Magnetic Resonance technology, the smartwatch eliminates the need for multiple chargers and wires. Simply resting in its cradle, the Toq does not require very precise alignment of devices—just drop it in.

Never Miss A Call Or Skip A Beat

If the Qualcomm Toq looks good, the sound will impress you too. With high-definition wireless stereo headsets you can really pamper yourself. The optional Toq Bluetooth earbuds feature high-quality stereo audio with a dedicated tweeter and woofer for a superior sound. The headsets are also lightweight and sit above the ear canal to prevent hearing loss.

The controls on the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch let you play the songs you want from your smartphone in the order you want them.

The time has come to receive notifications and alerts from your wrist. You can order the Qualcomm Toq now.
