Overall, the Galaxy Ring promises a simple yet effective approach to wellness, providing health monitoring, tracking, and personalized insights. It is designed to be worn comfortably on your finger, even while you sleep.

Galaxy Ring design



The Galaxy Ring is incredibly lightweight, ranging from 2.3 grams to 3.0 grams, depending on the size. Its unique concave design adds a stylish touch while maintaining durability, and Samsung claims it is comfortable even during long periods of wear. 



With 10ATM water resistance and a Titanium Grade finish, you can wear the Galaxy Ring confidently anywhere you go. Additionally, the smart ring has an IP68 rating, which means it can withstand submersion in up to 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes. Of course, this was tested under controlled laboratory conditions. However, it is not suitable for high-pressure water activities or diving.



The Galaxy Ring offers nine size options for you to choose from and comes in three different finishes:

  • Titanium Black
  • Titanium Silver
  • Titanium Gold

Galaxy Ring features


With Galaxy Ring, you get personalized support 24/7. Samsung promises that it will be getting smarter as Galaxy AI tech evolves. All your data and insights seamlessly integrate into Samsung Health on a single platform, with no subscription needed.



Galaxy Ring brings sleep analysis, using advanced AI to decode your sleep patterns and improve your sleep routine. It offers Sleep Score and snoring analysis, plus new metrics like sleep movement, latency, and heart and respiratory rates for precise insights into sleep quality. Plus, Cycle Tracking lets you monitor your menstrual cycle using overnight skin temperature data.



But wait, there is more! With Galaxy AI integration, you can receive a comprehensive health report that covers a range of health metrics, including:

  • New Energy Score: a Galaxy AI feature that boosts your understanding of how your health impacts your daily life. It provides personalized recommendations based on your current physical state, helping you focus on daily improvements. This score considers four key factors: Sleep, Activity, Sleeping Heart Rate, and Sleeping Heart Rate Variability.
  • Heart Rate Alert: This feature sends instant notifications through the Samsung Health app for real-time updates on unusually high or low heart rates.
  • Live Heart Rate Check: provides detailed insights into your heart rate, including beats per minute, start time, and duration.
  • Auto Workout Detection: keeps you active and motivated by automatically tracking your walks and runs.
  • Inactive Alert: sends you daily fitness reminders
  • Personalized messages: enhance your overall well-being throughout your health journey, powered by Wellness Tips tailored to your unique data and personal interests.

Moreover, on Galaxy smartphones, you can conveniently snap photos or silence alarms with a double pinch gesture. Plus, you can locate your Galaxy Ring using your Galaxy smartphone with Find My Ring on Samsung Find.

Galaxy Ring battery and charging
