Everything Samsung announced at Galaxy Unpacked in Paris

Date:

It’s IP68 and 10 ATM water resistant, so you can use it in the shower or while washing dishes. It connects to any Android phone via the Samsung Health app, but it won’t work with an iPhone. You don’t need a subscription to access the full set of features; all available features are included with purchase. It also works with Samsung Find, so you can easily find it if you lose it. There’s a charging case that works just like the case for your wireless earbuds. Samsung claims the Galaxy Ring can last up to seven days on a single charge, which matches the Oura Ring’s battery life.

The ring includes many of the health-tracking features you’d expect from a smartwatch, including sleep tracking, cycle tracking, high or low heart rate alerts, and auto-workout detection. Samsung has talked up the use of artificial intelligence on the ring, which uses smart algorithms to monitor sleep patterns, snoring, and heart and respiratory rates to help you get more insight into your sleep.

Even more important is a feature called Energy Score, which is also available on the new Galaxy Watch. Like Fitbit’s Daily Readiness or Garmin’s Body Battery, it looks at your data and then recommends how ready you should be to start the day based on factors like sleep quality and your recent activity level. You’ll also get “wellness tips” throughout the day to help you stay on track with your health goals. If you use both the Galaxy Ring and the new Galaxy Watch Series together, the watch may turn off some sensors to save battery life, which is something I’ve never seen before.

The ring doesn’t offer haptic feedback, but you can perform some rudimentary gesture controls with your fingers for certain actions, such as turning off an alarm or starting a video recording on your phone. These “double pinch gestures” are also available on the Galaxy Watch 7 series.
