Samsung Galaxy Ring goes official

Samsung has provided more details about its upcoming Galaxy Ring, the company's first smart ring, following a brief teaser at the Galaxy S24 Unpacked event last month. While pricing and availability details are yet to be disclosed, Samsung has revealed several key features of the Galaxy Ring.

The Galaxy Ring will be available in US ring sizes ranging from 5 to 13, with sizes marked from S to XL on the inside of the ring. Featuring a concave shape that tapers in the middle, the Galaxy Ring offers a sleek design compared to the convex look of other smart rings like the Oura Ring. It will be offered in three colors: ceramic black, platinum silver, and gold.

In terms of functionality, the Galaxy Ring is equipped to track various health metrics including heart rate, breathing rate, sleep patterns, and night movement. Notably, it can detect early signs of sleep apnea. 

Samsung is positioning the Ring as a companion to the Galaxy Watch, enabling users to benefit from higher quality 24/7 health and activity tracking.

One of the standout features of the Galaxy Ring is its ability to calculate a Vitality score, which is based on a combination of daily activity, sleep quality, resting heart rate, and heart rate variability. Users can also set specific wellbeing goals and track their progress through Booster Cards available in the Samsung Health app.

At launch, the Samsung Galaxy Ring will be exclusively compatible with Samsung Galaxy smartphones, with plans to expand compatibility to more Android devices in the future. While pricing and availability details are yet to be announced, Samsung's entry into the smart ring market with the Galaxy Ring brings new possibilities for health and wellness tracking in a compact and stylish wearable.
