Qualcomm is updating the Toq software to include voice to text for SMS to the mix. No longer will you have to type on your smartphone when a text needs to be answered – simply tap the microphone icon on the Toq and say what’s on your mind. Nuance’s speech-to-text technology will do the rest on your behalf. Unfortunately though, you can’t start a text message from the scratch, and this fancy feature will work with SMS replies only.
In addition, the new software also includes enhanced fidget detection and improved accuracy for “high intensity activities,” while the Comm Hub screen (Qualcomm calls it applet) has been renamed to Calls & Texts.
It’s nice to see Qualcomm launching new software for its watch; however, what we ultimately want is an app like Spritz that would allow us to do some serious reading on our wrist. Now that would be cool, right?
