Samsung’s Galaxy watches and new Galaxy Ring offer more health and wellness insights

Samsung has bolstered its wearables line up with a new range of Galaxy smartwatches and an all-new  Galaxy Ring which is designed to offer even more insights into your health and Wellness.

There are two new smartwatches the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra with both also incorporating the power of Galaxy AI.


Galaxy Ring is Samsung’s latest product that can gather health and wellness information in its smallest and most discreet form.

Samsung has brought its proven sensor technology to the lightweight Galaxy Ring which weighs just 3g.

Available in three colour choices, Titanium Black, Titanium Silver and Titanium Gold, Galaxy Ring can be worn around the clock and customised thanks to Galaxy AI.

All the data collected can be found in the Samsung Health app – a single free platform which allows users to monitor their health and fitness patterns and look for ways to improve it.

Samsung brings its impressive sleep analysis and sleep AI algorithm to Galaxy Ring to make it understand your sleep quality and build better sleep habits.

It can provide a Sleep School and even analyse your snoring and introduce new metrics including movement during sleep, sleep latency, heart and respiratory rate which all add up to a detailed and accurate analysis of your sleep quality.

It also has cycle tracking so women can also track their menstrual cycle.

But Galaxy Ring isn’t just about keeping an eye on your sleep, it can also give you information about your heart health with heart rate alerts which offers instant notifications for unusually high or low heart rates in real time via the Samsung Health app.

Users could also find out more about their heart rate including beats per minute, times starting time duration with live heart rate check.

Galaxy Ring can see when you’re working out through the Auto Workout Detection and offer daily prompts if you’re being inactive.

When paired to a Galaxy smartphone, users can use a double pinch via gestures to take photos or dismiss alarms.

And if you happen to misplace the Galaxy Ring you can find it via your Galaxy smartphone with Find My Ring on Samsung Find.

Pricing and a release date have yet to be announced.


Samsung has upgraded the Galaxy Watch 7 with Galaxy AI and a number of new features to gain a greater understanding of your health.
