Qualcomm Toq smart watch gets $100 price cut



Think Qualcomm might be feeling a little heat from all the great smart watches being announced this week? The company seems to have issued a permanent $100 price cut on the Toq, their first ever smart watch. Many different things can explain such a drastic price cut, with lack of sales surely to be near the top of the list. Stiffened competition also tends to lead to decisions like these — it isn’t easy to sell if you have the most expensive watch in the game.

If any smart watch was deserving a high price tag, though, it’s the Toq. It introduces a lot of unique features and new technologies, including that beautiful 1.55-inch Mirasol display that allows you to get a color experience without the drain on battery life that typically comes with. You’ll need a phone with at least Android 4.0.3 to buy one, so if you have that and this new $250 price point is more your style be sure to order one from Qualcomm’s store without delay.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. 150 should be the price of this watch if they want any sales lol

    1. 150 off the price it is now at 250 that is ;)

  2. How do any of these companies sell any of these watches? I can’t imagine I would use any of them if I was given them for free, let alone drop a few hundred dollars on one. I don’t know who they are marketing to with just gimicky supposed health features? Why do I want to drag an extra piece of equipment on my run with me?

    What I would love is something that let me leave my smartphone at home or in the car when I went running, swimming, to the waterpark, or whatever. Give me something that does a few useful things standalone, ie, gps for running, spotify, and a way to get important calls and texts, and then we’ll talk. Ok, heart monitor is a nice to have, but pedometer, sleep monitor, daily activity measuring crap… what a bunch of gimmicky crap.

    1. I can’t even imagine wearing it to sleep. They can hold the sleep monitor too.

      Honey, is that your watch or are you just happy to see me?

      1. It’s not as bad as you might think. I wear a fitness tracker watch all day/night as it records my heart rate constantly, but also monitors my sleep patterns.

        Honestly I never notice I’m wearing it in bed, but then again I’m a fairly heavy sleeper.

  3. “You’ll need a phone with at least Android 4.0.3 to buy one”. …..not could still buy one without 4.0.3. You just won’t be able to use it accordingly….

  4. Meh… I’ll just stick with the Pebble I just got for $100. (Best Buy student discount and Reward Zone certificate.)
