Samsung Launches $400 Smart Ring That Tracks Sleep and Periods

The ring uses artificial intelligence technology (AI) to analyse biometric data collected from the person wearing the device and connects to the Samsung health app

Mobile phone maker, Samsung, has become the first tech giant to release a smart ring that can track sleep, fitness, and even periods.

Samsung launched the device at its Galaxy Unpacked event on Wednesday as the latest addition to its ecosystem of devices it says it is “supercharging” with artificial intelligence (AI).

It said the $400 ring, which is scheduled to launch later this month on July 24 , will come with a battery life of up to seven days and is designed to be worn 24 hours a day to help users monitor their health stats during the day, and while they sleep.

“The device offers up a sleep “score” based on various metrics, including movement, heart rate and respiratory rate. It also performs cycle tracking based on the wearer’s skin temperature while sleeping. The product’s small size makes it a much less obtrusive sleeping buddy than a larger smartwatch,” Tech Crunch said.

Coming in three colours – gold, silver, and black – and nine sizes, the ring uses artificial intelligence technology (AI) to analyse biometric data collected from the person wearing the device and connects to the Samsung health app.

Away from fitness, Samsung says users can also take photos or snooze alarm clocks by pinching their fingers.
