Teased during the end of Samsung Unpacked 2024, the Samsung Galaxy Ring could be giving you a new way to monitor your health, but when will the upcoming device launch?
With the rise of smart rings from the likes of Oura and Ultrahuman, Samsung is not only attempting to win the smartphone market with the Galaxy S24 series. In fact, it's teased a Samsung Galaxy Ring, alongside the huge amount of Galaxy AI features showcased at the recent event.
But if you need another smart device to wear, when can you expect Samsung's latest product to arrive?
Samsung Galaxy Ring release date estimate
The most likely release date window for the Samsung Galaxy Ring is in the second half of 2024, with a Samsung executive adding a "new health & wellness wearable product in the 2nd half" of 2024 to their LinkedIn portfolio. However, no official release date has been announced.
Samsung teased the Galaxy Ring during its Samsung Unpacked event during January 2024. However, no concrete details, including specs or prices, were unveiled. We imagine that it will be officially announced during its second Unpacked event, which will likely come later this year.
What is the Samsung Galaxy Ring?
While the Samsung Galaxy Ring's features hasn't been officially revealed, it's expected to be a health and wellness accessory, specifically for monitoring sleep. This is thanks to a comment from Patrick Chomet, Head of Customer Experience at Samsung.
"It’s very exciting because, although Samsung Health works quite well – we’ve had a lot of good feedback on sleep tracking, and we are investing a lot [in its development] – what most people tell us is that they find it difficult to sleep with a watch. It’s much easier to sleep with a ring than a watch.", Chomet states during an interview with TechRadar.
However, a lot of work will need to go into the Galaxy Ring if it aims to be a primarily tool for sleep tracking. From personal and others' experiences with the Galaxy Watch 6, Samsung's sleep tracking hardware isn't great. In fact, it is often wrong, and so a pricey accessory from the company focusing on sleep should be as perfect as possible when it releases.
Samsung Galaxy Ring potential price
A price for the Samsung Galaxy Ring hasn't been revealed yet. However, we imagine it would cost roughly the same as the Oura Ring Gen3, which starts at $299.
That's everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Ring right now, but we'll hopefully hear more later this year from Samsung itself.
