The Samsung Galaxy Ring was shown during the Galaxy S24 presentation event in San Francisco last week, while Samsung didn’t provide any details other than a brief look at the device, the South Korean company has officially confirmed the existence of the” smart ring “.

President of Samsung’s mobile division teased that the Galaxy Ring will be available in Europe later this year.

Samsung Galaxy Ring: Everything we know so far

Despite the lack of specific details, Amber Reaver, a spokesperson for Samsung, said via email that the ring aims to give more people the ability to manage their health with a comprehensive yet simplified approach to everyday wellness at home. Its small format allows for the tracking of accurate and constant data over time.

Packed with smart features, Galaxy Ring is designed to interact with the Samsung Health app, a hub for collecting health data from smartphones, smartwatches and smart bracelets. It is precisely in health monitoring that the core of the Galaxy Ring experience lies, with a key element that could be the artificial intelligence of Galaxy AI.

Samsung’s new platform, based partly on the cloud, offers a fundamental approach for such a small device, which could use the cloud to process diverse data, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygenation, body temperature, and activity sports, with the common goal of integrating with Samsung Health.

Ready to Compete

The Galaxy Ring closely resembles another wearable device, the Oura Ring . This device, which tracks health and sleep, has been very popular with fitness enthusiasts and celebrities alike since its debut way back in 2015.

In response to Samsung’s ring announcement, Tom Hale, CEO of Oura, stated that their company is ready to compete, boasting a strong portfolio.

I believe if Samsung finds success with Galaxy Ring, other major companies are likely to follow suit. If so, the perception of smart rings could evolve from stand-alone devices to complementary accessories to other gadgets.
