Samsung teased its Galaxy Ring tracker as part of its “One More Thing” teaser at its Galaxy Unpacked event. Tech analyst Avi Greengart shared some more details based on early access to a prototype Galaxy Ring at the event.
With a diameter of 22.2mm, the wearable is remarkably light and comes in a variety of sizes. The Galaxy Ring will be available in 3 material finishes later this year. Pogo pins can be found on the inside of the Galaxy Ring teaser images, alongside heart rate monitoring, SpO2 monitoring, sleep tracking, and stress monitoring.
The Galaxy Ring could debut in Q3 2024, according to earlier rumors, but Samsung has not released any official launch details.
