Samsung just got me interested in Smart Rings

Wearable tech seems to be the latest trend right now, with smart rings especially dominating the category. I recently got myself a Galaxy Watch 6, as it came included as a bundle with my new Samsung Galaxy S24, and although I really do love this wearable watch – it got me thinking if I'd be better off with a smart ring instead.

Other amazing innovations in wearable tech include the Humane AI pin, which aims to eradicate the concept of screens, just like smart rings. Samsung revealed a first look at its upcoming Galaxy Ring during the latest Samsung Unpacked event, and according to Forbes, we can expect this to arrive towards the second half of 2024 (and it might have a completely different design too). There's no indication of price yet, but it won't be cheap.
