Qualcomm Toq comes with AllJoyn support, ships with a charger and wireless headphones and is priced as previously mentioned by most rumors and leaks, at $349. Its main selling point seems to be the display, described as "a revolutionary reflective, low-power display that enables an always on viewing experience" but remains to be seen if this smartwatch can live up to the hype.
