Samsung’s Galaxy Ring
Samsung has finally released its Galaxy Ring. However, the rival wearable will not cause any problems for the long rumored Apple Ring. Samsung unveiled a number products at the Galaxy Unpacked event held on July 10. Samsung’s big launch is a brand new category, which it had teased would be introduced. The Galaxy Ring, as its name suggests, is a smart band. Just like a watch that can be worn around the wrist to provide information about fitness and health, the smart ring can also do the same in a more compact format. The Galaxy Ring looks like a normal band, but it has a layer of sensors that monitors the user’s vitals. It weighs between 2.3 grams to 3.0 grams, depending on the size and material. It has a stylish concave shape and a Titanium grade 5-finish for durability. Samsung claims that its ring is able to withstand up to 10 atmospheres of force and has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. Battery life can last up to seven full days with its 18mAh battery, and a charging case of 361mAh. A photoplethysmogram sensor (PPG), which monitors blood volume changes on the finger to detect heart rates, is included. Also included is a skin temperature sensor, as well an accelerometer. The sensors on the Samsung Galaxy Ring are shown in detail. The trio of sensors is used for automatic workout detection and can be used to track sleep, monitor heart rate, and perform live heart rate checks. It can be controlled through the Samsung Health platform to perform sleep analysis, using an AI algorithm. This will monitor sleep patterns and suggest ways to improve resting behaviors. The ring also provides daily fitness reminders through Inactive Alerts. Cycle Tracking can be done using the skin temperature. Galaxy AI will create a health report containing the user’s health metrics. This will include an Energy Score that will provide recommendations based on the user’s physical condition. The ring does not have its own display. It connects via Bluetooth 5.4 to a smartphone. Apple users will not be able to test out the Galaxy Ring on their iPhones, as it is only compatible with Android devices. The Galaxy Ring is not only a health aid, but it can also be used to interact with Galaxy smartphones. Double pinches can be used to dismiss alarms and take photos. Find My Ring is a feature in Samsung Find which helps users to know where they used the wearable last. Samsung Galaxy Rings are available for preorder now in select markets and will be shipped on July 24 at a price of $399. The Samsung Galaxy Ring will be available in sizes 5 to 13 and in Titanium Black. Titanium Silver and Titanium Gold will also be available. Samsung’s Galaxy Ring could be a threat to the Apple Ring. Since almost two decades, the Cupertino-based tech giant has been rumored to be working on this concept. There have been a lot rumors and speculations, as well as many patent filings. Patent evidence and the general consensus are that Apple Ring wearables are on their way. Subscribe to AppleInsider YouTube With Samsung entering the smart-ring market before Apple observers might think that Samsung has an advantage. If you ignore Oura. If the Apple Ring is released, it’s unlikely that the Galaxy Ring would cause any problems for it. Samsung’s hardware releases coming first doesn’t make as much difference as you might think. Consider the Apple Watch which was released in September 2014 as an example. Samsung launched the Galaxy Gear smartwatch in September 2013. In tech, a year is a long time. Samsung was thought to have a huge advantage at the time. Apple’s launch of the smartwatch market and its subsequent dominance did not change. A report stated that by 2023, the Apple Watch would account for 34.1% all smartwatch shipments. Apple Watch also accounted for 60% of the market revenue. Samsung came in second. It held only 9.8% of the market at the time, despite a 12% increase year-on-year. The problem of ecosystem loyalty is also a concern. iPhone users are more likely to purchase the Apple Watch than other watches, and Android users are the same. You can probably expect ring sales to follow the same ecosystem lines. It’s still too early to predict the exact market dynamics, since the Apple Ring is not yet available outside of Apple’s laboratories. The writing is on wall. Samsung has the advantage of having a product on sale. Apple Ring is likely to follow the Apple Watch and quickly dominate the market.
