Qualcomm announced today that they will start selling their Toq (pronounced “talk”) smartwatch on December 2nd aka Cyber Monday. The device will sell for $349.99 and at least initially, will only be sold directly by Qualcomm from their web site. The Toq features a Mirasol low power display that supposedly will be capable of running for several days between charges despite being in an “always on” state. The device can be paired with an Android device running at least Android 4.0.3, although Qualcomm indicates 4.3 Jelly Bean is preferred. The Toq will come loaded with weather and stock apps from AccuWeather and E*TRADE respectively to go along with the apps providing the ability to accept/reject calls, view text messages, get meeting alerts and receive other notifications.
