Samsung Galaxy Ring is getting closer to being a product you may wear close to your body | Digit
Samsung is just one of the many brands that are working on smart rings, a new kind of wearable. Well, rings have been in the market for a while now but they haven’t gotten mainstream yet. Well, things could change earlier than you may think.
Samsung Galaxy Ring production updates
As per the South Korean publication The Elec, Samsung has apparently procured the resources required for making the Galaxy Ring. It is now looking for a timeline to begin mass production.

The chances are that this could start as early as next month.
Samsung ring patent
However, the launch is supposedly slated for next year. Once the product is ready, Samsung will also have to acquire regulatory approvals and medical certifications to position it more than a regular ring and other smart rings in the market. If the product development takes 7 to 8 months, the approval process could take up to 8 to 10 months.
This brings us to:
Other smart rings on the market
One way Samsung seems to be planning to differentiate its ring is by making it a controller for the Galaxy mixed reality headset that’s purportedly in the pipeline.
Apple ring patent
The Apple ring that’s in the making is also said to have this functionality for manoeuvring the Apple Vision Pro headset.

But both these products are far too away from being a real product. Much closer to availability seems to be the Noise and Boat rings. These will be entry-grade alternatives that offer features like heart rate tracking, SpO2 count, sleep health analysis, etc. But they could have an early mover advantage as neither Samsung and Apple nor the Oura and Movanos of the world are available in India yet.
However, in a couple of years, we expect to have plenty of options in the smart ring space.
