Smartwatches have gained popularity in tracking personal health stats, but some individuals prefer not to wear them all day and night. Recognizing this, devices like the Oura Ring have caught the attention of users. Now, it seems that a new smart ring could be released at the beginning of next year, and its launch could be significant due to the company behind it.
Samsung is expected to announce the Samsung Galaxy S24 series of phones early next year, and there are speculations that a Galaxy Ring may also be introduced at the same event. The information comes from Chinese-based tipster, Ice Universe, marking the first time a potential release date for a Samsung fitness ring has been suggested.
Smart rings offer similar features as smartwatches, such as activity tracking, heart rate monitoring, and sleep analysis. However, smart rings are less obtrusive due to their compact size and lack of constant notifications.
Currently, smart rings lag behind smartwatches in terms of sales, but the market is projected to grow significantly in the coming years. Studies have highlighted the benefits of smart rings, such as the ability to develop sleep-wake models and assist medical professionals in critical care situations.
The features of the Samsung Galaxy Ring are yet to be determined, but it is expected to offer similar health-tracking capabilities as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6. With Samsung’s entry into the market, it will be interesting to see how competitors like Apple respond and innovate to stay ahead.
Samsung typically holds Galaxy Unpacked events in the early part of the year for phone launches, so the first Galaxy Ring release may be just a few months away. Exciting developments can be anticipated in the world of wearable technology as new features and designs continue to emerge.
