A smartwatch is used for
more than telling time
It’s like a computer you wear
on your wrist
For a long time,
associated with science
The earliest smartwatches
could only perform the most
In addition to telling time, today’s smartwatches can
manage phone calls, text messages, emails, and a
multitude of other applications
Several companies such as Sony and Samsung have
released their own versions of smartwatches.
The Samsung Gear was announced in September of 2013
and has introduced the smartwatch into the
When the Gear came out, it was received with general
disappointment with respect to it’s battery life, screen
visibility and functionality when it comes to managing
By contrast, another smartwatch – The Toq by
Qualcomm – was named one of Popular Science’s Best of
What’s New 2013
Announced on September 3rd 2013, The Qualcomm Toq is
sure to be the innovation that gets people excited about
The Qualcomm Toq Smartwatch
The Toq is one of the most innovative
smartwatches on the market
It has the longest lasting battery life of all
smartwatches currently available
It is compatible with all android devices
and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth
It uses Mirasol display technology for
increased screen visibility
It provides a color and touch screen
The Toq is the only smartwatch that uses
“drop and go” wireless charging
There is also the option of a wireless
headset to go with the Toq
Why the Qualcomm Toq?
The Qualcomm Toq is ahead of the game when it comes
It solves problems concerning screen visibility and
length of battery life.
It offers superior functionality to other smartwatches
with respect to application management
It is leading the way toward truly wireless
Have you ever lost your cellphone? Or had it stolen?
For some, this can be a damaging experience, both
socially and financially.
Smartwatch technology came about from a desire for
greater security and convenience.
The Qualcomm Toq uses the latest in technology to take
the smartwatch to the next level
In the future, the smartwatch will be heavily integrated
into mobile communication because it offers an
advantage over smartphones.
Allows users to tell time and manage apps quickly and
Attached to wrist for loss prevention
It is my prediction that the idea of the smartwatch will
soon become more mainstream and the Qualcomm Toq
will take off because of the relative advantage it offers
over other smartwatches
How will the need for security and convenience effect
the development of communication technology?
