Qualcomm TOQ Watch
TOQ is the smartwatch platform from Qualcomm
The TOQ smartwatch was built around Qualcomm’s Mirasol display technology. Purpledecks have provided mobile development consultancy to Qualcomm for a number of years. Working with Qualcomm’s internal team our task was to create an App development framework that would allow Android developers to create watch “Applets”. These Applets ran on the watch. A developer could embed the Applet inside their Android App, which was then pushed to the watch upon synchronisation. This App development framework was core to the power of the watch to engage with its users.
Communications were handled over the custom secure Bluetooth protocol. Application security was critical and a secure framework was created to prevent malicious apps from taking control of the watch or the Android device.
