Product will cost around R $800
The smart watch Toq, of Qualcomm, will be released on December 2, according to the The Verge. The product will cost US $ $350 (R $800) and will initially be sold only in the United States, through the website of Qualcomm. For now, the clock is only compatible with Android smartphones.
A Toq differential against competitors such as Pebble, Galaxy Gear and Smartwatch clock 2 is the screen technology. The Mirasol technology uses Toq, Qualcomm’s own. She has low power consumption and provides color images and well visible even under strong sunlight.
Despite all these benefits, the Mirasol never managed to become popular among manufacturers of e-readers. The digital book market was the initial target of Qualcomm, but the most popular products in this area, such as the Kindle, Nook and Sony lines Reader, use E-Ink technology.
According to Qualcomm, Toq itself is not being created to be a sales success, but rather to show the potential of the Mirasol technology. The company hopes that other manufacturers can use this technology on the screens of other smart watches.
Toq resources should be similar to those of other watches. Displays notifications and will feature applications for information on climate and other data of everyday use.
