    Today Qualcomm announced that their Toq Smartwatch is officially available for pre-order from their Toq Store with a $350.00 price tag attached to it. Available in black and white the Toq will ship in 1-3 weeks with the charges to your Credit card only taking place after the smartwatch has shipped. The Toq SmartWatch is compatible with most Android powered handsets, so you don't have to worry about compatibly issues.

    If you are interested you can head on over to the Toq Store and reserve yours today.

    We've yet to see a high demand for wearables (Galaxy Gear) and perhaps with some pricing changes that could all change. What say you? Are these SmartWatches priced at a level you'd expect, or should they be dropped to a sub $300.00 price point?

    Well, this may not be the popular answer, but I feel they should totally fall in price in a rapid descent. The components are very inexpensive, and they will become outdated in literally months if not less given how inexpensive they are to manufacture. They shouldn't be more than $100. Watches are falling out of favor and really, unless you want BLING, you don't spend more than $20 and get a watch that is accurate to within a split second per year.

    I would buy one at $100, but certainly not at anywhere near $300. People fret about a phone that costs $700 and yet manufacturers are pitching $350 watches. I don't know how it can be successful at that price-point.

    It looks pretty cool. I tried the galaxy watch but it was too big for my wrists.

    I like the e-ink display, the battery lasts almost all week (as opposed to only 10 hours for the Gear).
    I get my notifications, if I want to read the email or text, I use my phone. I see no need to spend so much money on a phone to then stare at your wrist all day. Plus I can leave my phone on silent at work and not miss anything.
    The size is a little large, but o larger than some of the chunky watches out there.
    For only $150 it is no more expensive than most watches, I couldn't justify spending more though.

    Is it perfect, no. But I figure that's the price to pay for essentially getting in on the ground floor. It's not for everyone, but it is for me.

    Totally agree. Sony's first Smartwatch was under $100.
    The new one is $200.

    SW2ACT - SW2ACT Review | Sony Store U.S. - Sony US

    Much more reasonable.

    Going to have to agree with you on that one. $100 is my price point for any of these watches. If the GG dropped to $100 I would run out right now and buy one for sure, till then the expense can't be justified.
