Samsung has long marketed smartwatches and wearable devices. However, at the end of the Unpacked event which launched the Galaxy S24, a glimpse of Samsung’s next wearable device product, namely the Galaxy Ring, was shown.

This Galaxy Ring looks like a ring. In fact, smart rings are nothing new, but they are not as popular as smart watches. The Oura ring, for example, is a favorite of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, and the Evie smart ring from Movano was designed with women’s health in mind,

From the information provided, the Galaxy Ring seems to be one part of Samsung’s strategy to create a network of devices that can provide information to the Samsung Health application, for a more complete picture of user habits.

At first glance, the Galaxy Ring looks like ordinary jewelry, until you look at the tiny sensors and electronics inside. Digital Health Samsung Research, Matthew Wiggins said that the Galaxy Ring is a smart ring that is equipped with various features commonly found in the Samsung Health application.

The Next Gen Of Galaxy Samsung

“This is the Galaxy Ring, a device we created for a better life, as well as a device to access various Samsung-style health features in the future,” added Wiggins.

There’s still a lot that’s unknown about the Ring, like when it will launch, how much it will cost, what type of sensor it will have, and what health metrics it will collect. But the Ring is another means for Samsung to carry out its health strategy.

The ring is circular and black. Since it is a smart wearable device, it will likely be able to track a number of health metrics just like a typical wearable device. And because it doesn’t have a screen, its battery life should be better than a smartwatch.
