Samsung is poised to introduce its inaugural smart ring, likely to be named the Galaxy Ring, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona. The tech giant aims to diversify its health-focused wearables portfolio, offering a sneak peek of the ring during last month’s Galaxy S24 launch event. 

Although specific details are yet to be disclosed, Samsung’s recent statement assures users that the Galaxy Ring will deliver enhanced personalized experiences through advancements in artificial intelligence.

The smart ring is expected to complement Samsung’s existing Galaxy Watch series, providing additional health-tracking capabilities. The compact form factor of the ring opens up possibilities for comprehensive health monitoring, including blood flow measurement for heart rate, respiration tracking, and potentially incorporating ECG functionality to detect irregular heart rhythms, akin to recent models from Apple and Samsung’s Galaxy Watch.

One of the most anticipated features of the Galaxy Ring is its rumoured ability to continuously monitor glucose levels, offering a significant breakthrough for individuals with diabetes. If realized, Samsung could potentially beat competitors, including Apple, to the market with a non-invasive glucose monitoring solution, marking a crucial advancement in health technology.

Apart from health tracking, leaks suggest that the Galaxy Ring may feature device control and contactless payment capabilities, allowing users to manage devices and make payments without the need for a phone or wallet. Samsung’s unified software ecosystem positions the company favourably in the smart ring segment.

While the official launch is scheduled for later in 2024, the unveiling at Mobile World Congress 2024 is expected to provide the first insights into the Galaxy Ring’s capabilities and functionalities.
