Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy Gear, however it looks like that was not the only smartwatch introduction that arrived today. The other is called the Toq and comes by way of Qualcomm. The Toq will be similar to what we have been seeing with other smartwatch offerings in that it will be a companion to your smartphone. Of course, while the Qualcomm Toq has that similarity, there will also be a difference in terms of the display technology.
