As we take on the last leg of 2024 first quarter, one of the exciting technological releases we’re looking forward to in the second quarter is Samsung’s latest and smallest form of wearable device—the Galaxy Ring—built for comfortable 24/7 wear as an “all-new way to simplify everyday wellness.”


The first quarter of the year has been a busy one for tech releases. Groundbreaking products and software like  Open AI’s GPT-4o, Google’s Gemini 1.5 Pro, Microsoft’s Copilot+ PCs, and TECNO’s Camon 30 Series hit the market. 

While these advancements primarily focus on enhancing productivity and user satisfaction, Samsung’s Galaxy Ring takes a different approach, offering a comprehensive yet simplified understanding of a user’s health, conveniently accessible right on their preferred finger.

The wearable device was first teased by Samsung at the Galaxy Unpacked 2024 event, before Dr. Hon Pak, the company’s Vice President and Head of the Digital Health Team, elaborated on the health and wellness solutions abound in the Galaxy Ring in February.

With Galaxy Ring, users can embrace an unrivalled experience during every step of their wellness journey, all while being delivered in lockstep with Samsung’s broader vision for a more connected, integrated and seamless digital wellness platform.


The ring is set to be Samsung’s 18th wearable device, following the invention of SPH-WP10, the world’s the world’s first commercialised watch phone released in 1999.
