While Samsung showcased the Galaxy Ring at MWC in Barcelona, it still retained most of the wearable's technical specifications under wraps, including the battery life. Fortunately, we do not have long to wait until the actual launch date of the Galaxy Ring. A new report from Samsung's home turf South Korea has shed more light on the smart ring's battery section.

Samsung Galaxy Ring battery life

According to Samsung's Head of Digital Health executive Hon Pak, first cited by outlet FNNews, the Galaxy Ring will offer 5 to 9 days of battery life between charges. The endurance rating is based on the ring's size. This means the smaller options have the shortest battery life and cell capacity whereas the biggest ring variants will have a larger battery.

In comparison, the Galaxy Ring should sport a significantly longer battery life than the Galaxy Watch 6 (review), which could also make it more suitable for users who were previously let down by the smartwatch's weight and form.

Based on what we know, the Galaxy Ring will be offered in multiple ring size options, ranging between 5 and 13. Likewise, the weight of the ring will also depend on the size. In addition, Samsung confirmed the Galaxy Ring will be available in three colorways: black, silver/platinum, and gold.

As for charging, Samsung did not share details about this matter. Given the tiny cell capacity, charging the Galaxy Ring should take less than an hour thereabouts.

Samsung Galaxy Ring tracking features

Other ring features revealed by the company include heart rate tracking, respiratory rate, sleep latency, and night movement. The device will also enable the usual monitoring tools from Samsung's Galaxy Watch such as a pedometer, blood oxygen level, skin temperature, and even menstrual cycle tracking for women.

More importantly, Samsung also mentioned these smart ring functions will be complemented by Galaxy AI, which it already emphasized in its recent wearables like the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds headphones.

Samsung is expected to unveil and launch the Galaxy Ring in July at the second Unpacked event where the company's next-generation foldable smartphones are also tipped to be revealed.

Do you think a week of battery life on the Galaxy Ring is sufficient? We'd like to hear your opinion in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
