The Enigmatic GALAXY RING: A Marvel for the Mighty Hands

It’s the age of wearable technology getting smaller, but significantly more powerful and sophisticated. Which is why the Samsung Galaxy Ring stands to fundamentally change what we expect of a smart ring – and add an extra surprise for those with larger fingers: more battery life. So just what is this tiny titan, and how is it going to change the perception of discreet fitness tracking?

Unveiling the GALAXY RING: A Powerhouse in Miniature

It was recently certified by the FCC, which has stirred up excitement around the Galaxy Ring, Samsung’s newest wearable tech product. The Galaxy Ring, for its part, is available in different sizes for ‘one size fits all’. But really, it’s those with bigger hands that will benefit the most from this ring.

The One Ring to Rule Them All: Battery Life that Grows with Size

MySmartPrice notes that the FCC listings also give a hint to the way that battery powers will be tiered across the Galaxy Ring lineup, specifying corresponding battery sizes by ring: the smaller size 5, 6, and 7 rings will have a 17mAh battery. Those in the middle of the bell curve – sizes 8 through 11 – will be slightly bigger at 18.5mAh, while titans of the collection, the size 12 rings, will have a 22.5mAh battery and therefore the longest run time.

The Advantage of Bigger: More Than Just Comfort

The absence of a display means that the second-most important piece of the puzzle, besides the fitness tracking magic itself, will reside inside the Galaxy Ring: the battery. Larger rings mean larger batteries, and thus the Galaxy Ring’s optimal user, whether they know it or not, has larger fingers. In fact, they are more deserving than anyone else of a longer-lasting wearable, without the need to add stylistic compromises.

Bluetooth Connectivity: Bridging the GALAXY RING with Your World

Boosting all of this is the Galaxy Ring’s use of the latest in Bluetooth – Bluetooth 5.4 and Bluetooth LE – which means it’s always on hand to speak to your devices, keeping you connected and informed without the need for a chunky smartwatch.

A Comparison of Giants: GALAXY RING vs. Oura Ring

Scaling battery size with physical dimensions is not unique to the Galaxy Ring; even a competing product in this industry, the Oura Ring, uses the same strategy. What’s unique, and clearly a major selling point for the Galaxy Ring, is that Samsung offers an unprecedented range of sizes, and promises multi-day battery life across the entire range. If you do want one of the smaller sizes available, at least one thing you don’t have to worry about is how long the battery will last.

Why Bigger Might Just Be Better

As unavoidable as the issue of needing a perfect fit is, the Galaxy Ring indicates that bigger might just mean better, particularly for battery life. Small physical rings have to accommodate smallish batteries, but Samsung engineered the Galaxy Ring to ensure that every ring, no matter what size, will have plenty of battery life. This means people on the fence about size might just opt for a larger ring in hopes of getting a longer-lasting device.

A New Chapter in Wearable Technology

The Galaxy Ring shows us a future for wearables where one size fits no one, once and for all.

Exploring the GALAXY RING

Innovation and user-centric design sit at the core of the Galaxy RingIt transformed the experience of wearing technology into a positive one – a new way to be stylish, practical, and inclusive. With a range of three size options, the Galaxy Echo had purposefully positioned the larger batteries in the larger rings, while delivering longer battery life through optimisation of software. It provided everything you could want in a fitness device, and at launch this small entity would make a big impact. As we looked forward to its launch, it was clear that the Galaxy Ring would change the way we interact with our technology, one ring size at a time.

Differentiated in every way they can be, from aesthetics to function, right down to the size of their appendages, the Galaxy Ring makes the case that there’s innovation for everyone.
