Samsung unveils Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7, and Galaxy Watch Ultra

Product updates

  • Samsung Electronics has launched Galaxy Ring, a wearable health monitoring device, and two new smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra. The Galaxy Ring is designed for wellness tracking, while the smartwatches offer advanced health and fitness features.

  • The Galaxy Ring tracks health metrics like sleep, heart rate, and activity, providing personalized insights and integrating with Samsung Health. It offers advanced sleep analysis, up to seven days of battery life, and is water-resistant. The Galaxy Watch7 features 100+ workout tracking options, enhanced sleep analysis with sleep apnea detection, an improved BioActive Sensor for accurate health readings, faster processing, and dual-frequency GPS. The Galaxy Watch Ultra adds premium build quality, advanced fitness features, improved durability, a customizable Quick Button, an emergency siren, and extended battery life. The Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7, and Galaxy Watch Ultra are priced at USD 399.99, USD 299.99, and USD 649.99, respectively. 

  • Samsung claims the Galaxy Ring and smartwatches, powered by Galaxy AI, deliver a holistic and personalized wellness experience. The devices offer features like personalized coaching, metabolic health insights, and integration with the Samsung ecosystem for smart replies and Samsung Wallet.

  • Analyst QuickTake : First announced earlier this year , Samsung’s launch of its health monitoring devices, specifically its Galaxy Ring, will help disrupt the smart ring market, potentially wrestling away market share from competitor Ōura. Historically, Ōura has been extremely protective of its market share, going as far as to sue potential new entrants such as Ultrahuman, Circular, and RingConn, in some instances before they even entered the US market. However, just last month , Samsung countered this potential move by preemptively suing the company to prevent intellectual property disputes, the basis for Ōura’s previous lawsuits.
