Samsung Galaxy Ring is now confirmed to be showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 in Barcelona, which is currently underway. The South Korean tech giant also revealed that its Samsung Health platform will play a vital role for the wearable in keeping track of the health vitals and offering insights to users. Additionally, the company’s AI suite will also be expanded to its wider portfolio. Earlier, a report claimed the Galaxy Ring might also be available in three different colourways and multiple sizes.

Announcing in a post via its Newsroom, Samsung said that the Galaxy Ring will be “publicly displayed for the first time” at MWC 2024. The date and time of the showcase were not disclosed. Since it is the first public unveiling, it is unlikely to make an appearance in the company’s booths for enthusiasts to try on.

The Galaxy Ring will be introduced as a new health form factor, the company revealed. It will be connected to the Samsung Health platform, which is being revamped and modernised, as per earlier reports. The company did not tease any new images of the product, but that is understandable as it is so close to its official unveiling.

As per earlier reports, the Galaxy Ring wearable is expected to feature a 24×7 heart rate monitor, a SpO2 (blood oxygen) sensor, a sleep monitoring tracker, and other fitness tracking capabilities. It may also get a blood pressure monitoring feature.

Separately, the South Korean giant also announced that a big focus will be on Galaxy AI during the showcase. Samsung has previously announced that the AI features will be expanded across its existing smartphones including the Galaxy S23 series, Tab S9 series, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy S23 FE. But now, it revealed that the AI suite will also be expanded across different product lines. The Galaxy Book 4 series and Galaxy Watch 6 series will both get Galaxy AI features, albeit a more specific version of them. The laptops will get “intelligent productivity” features whereas the smartwatches will get “intelligent health” features.

The post also gave a glimpse at what the “intelligent health” suite may look like by highlighting two features. A new My Vitality Score feature will offer personalised health insights based on sleep quality and quantity, daily activity, average heart rate, heart rate variability and more. The Second feature called Booster Card will tracks users’ predefined goals and offer insights on how they can be achieved. More details are expected after the official showcase.
