Qualcomm released a substantial update to its Toq smartwatch today, taking advantage of a hardware feature few even knew the device had: a microphone. The 1.5 software adds the ability to respond to SMS messages on your phone through the watch using your voice, which is then converted to text using Nuance’s STT technology. Oddly, no other voice control features are included with this update, though arguably the ability to reply to texts is one of the more common things you’d do with a smartwatch to begin with.
