Qualcomm demonstrates the Toq Mirasol smartwatch

Posted on Wednesday, September 04 2013 @ 20:47:53 CEST by

Engadget reports Qualcomm has found a new product category to flog its low-power Mirasol display technology: smartwatches. The company shows a prototype of its Toq smartwatch, which offers excellent outdoor readability and far less power consumption than LCD or OLED equivalents. Shipments are expected to start in Q4 2013 but you can already pre-order a black or white Toq through Qualcomm's website.
A unique design allowed Qualcomm to add a color display and touch functionality while still maintaining a slim profile. The battery, one of the device's largest and heaviest components, is mounted at the bottom of the band by the buckle, rather than below the Mirasol screen. There's no physical connectors to deal with, either -- the watch communicates with a companion Android app (iOS is coming) via Bluetooth and WiFi, and it charges through a wireless dock that doubles as a carrying case for the optional stereo Bluetooth headset, which also charges wirelessly using the same accessory.
