Watches aren’t what they used to be…

by Christian Lavery

They don’t have diamond covered faces, quartz movements, or take inspiration from the timepiece your grandfather wore in his military days. But that hasn’t stopped us from getting rather excited. In case you weren’t aware, there’s a new breed of watches hitting the market, and they do more than just tell time (but don’t worry, they still do that too).

Among them, the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch. Compatible with Android smartphones and starting at $350, the next generation technology will add some pretty impressive attributes to your wrist. Features include a Mirasol display that that utilizes ambient light to enable a visible viewing experience, Qualcomm WiPower for “drop and go” wireless charging, and Bluetooth enabled pairing to allow consumers to accept/reject calls, view text messages and meeting alerts, and selectively receive notifications from their smartphone. With no on or off switch and multiple days of battery life, the Toq will seamlessly merge your physical and digital life into one.
