The Samsung Galaxy Ring was unveiled on the 17th of January at the Galaxy Unpacked Event, where the Galaxy S24 smartphone series were revealed. Galaxy Ring is said to be launching as a fitness and health tracker compatible with Samsung Health Suite.
The company has not revealed any more details about the smartwearable. However, several reports and leaks have since hinted at the key features and design. A company executive has now confirmed the Galaxy Ring launch date.
- Good Lock has recently added a Samsung Galaxy Ring to its app
- Smart rings are likely to include ECG, AFib and PPG sensors
- The Galaxy Ring expected to support charging with pogo pin
Daniel Seung Lee, a senior Samsung executive, confirmed in a LinkedIn posting the much-anticipated Galaxy Ring would debut in the second quarter of 2024.
He didn’t give any more details or an exact date. Previously, it was speculated that the smart ring would be unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 or Galaxy Z Flip 6 in later this year. This assumption is confirmed by the launch date.
Samsung Galaxy Ring to Hit the Market in the Second Half of 2024
The Samsung Galaxy Ring was seen in the Good Lock app, under the battery widgets, last week. This suggested that its launch would be imminent.
The ring is expected to be a “lightweight wearable” in three colours and in sizes up to 12 (22.2mm). The smart ring will also support pogo-pin charging.
The company claimed that the Galaxy Ring was a “powerful, accessible device for health and wellness.”
In the official teaser, we saw the round, smooth ring equipped with sensors on its underside to help track health and fitness.
Leaked indicate that the Samsung Ring is likely to be equipped with sensors for electrocardiograms (ECG), photosplethysmography, or atrial fibrillation.
The Galaxy Ring is expected to have 24×7 heart rate monitoring, SpO2 and sleep trackers.
Samsung Health Suite will likely upload all health, fitness, and sleep data collected by the smart ring.
