Samsung to determine Galaxy Ring’s mass production in August

Samsung is reportedly developing an advanced wearable health-tracking device called the Galaxy Ring. This smart ring is being developed in collaboration with domestic and international component manufacturers to ensure its success before potential mass production, which may be decided as early as August, according to Korean media outlet The Elec.
The key feature of the Galaxy Ring is its ability to gather detailed body and health data through built-in sensors, which can be conveniently presented on a connected smartphone. Unlike Samsung’s existing Galaxy Watch, this smart ring is expected to provide even more precise body measurements. To enhance accuracy, the ring’s fit can be adjusted according to the user’s finger size, reducing potential data inaccuracies caused by loose fittings.
However, there are challenges that Samsung needs to address during development. The accuracy of data may be affected by weak blood flow or overly tight fitting. Additionally, the certification process for medical device status is expected to take around 10 to 12 months, potentially delaying the product’s availability even if mass production is approved.
Samsung is also considering integrating the Galaxy Ring with XR (mixed reality) devices, using its XR technology to track users’ head and hand movements through cameras and sensors, as demonstrated in patent applications. The launch of Samsung’s XR headset is reportedly delayed by six months due to competition with Apple Vision Pro. The Galaxy Ring is expected to be released in 2024, possibly coinciding with the announcement of the Galaxy S24 series. Interestingly, Noise and boAt recently launched their health-focused smart rings in India.
