Samsung Unveils Wearables With AI-Powered Wellness Features

Samsung unveiled its latest wearables with features powered by artificial intelligence.

The new Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra became available for pre-order in select markets Wednesday (July 10) and will be generally available starting July 24, the company said in a Wednesday press release.

The three products include the company’s Galaxy AI, according to the release.

“The intelligence, guidance and insights that are offered with Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra will help users turn data into meaningful insights and create a whole new era of expanded intelligent health experiences,” TM Roh, president and head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics, said in the release.

Galaxy Ring delivers health monitoring, tracking and personalized insights in a package that weighs between 2.3 grams and 3 grams and is designed to be comfortably worn on a finger day and night, according to the release. It uses Galaxy AI to help users understand their sleep patterns, evaluate their physical and mental conditions and develop better habits.

Galaxy Watch7 includes a new AI algorithm for sleep analysis, the release said. It also offers personalized workouts, intelligent and preventative health monitoring capabilities, and detection of potential signs of sleep apnea and abnormal heart rates.

Galaxy Watch Ultra, the newest addition to Samsung’s smartwatch lineup, builds upon the capabilities of the Galaxy Watch7, adding greater durability and a feature that helps users optimize the intensity of their workouts based on their physical capabilities, per the release.

“These new additions to the wearables portfolio are central to Samsung’s vision for Galaxy AI to enhance digital health, delivering personalized insights and tailored health experiences that enable a more comprehensive understanding of yourself through a holistic approach to everyday wellness,” Samsung said in the release.

There has been a proliferation of wearable innovations aggregating diverse fitness data sources, PYMNTS reported in May. Other players in this field include Google and Oura.

AI is also revolutionizing the wellness industry, powering services such as massages, personalized fitness coaching, nutrition planning and mental health support.

The pandemic helped accelerate the momentum of wearables, as the monthly use of the technology by consumers rose from 37% in November 2021 to 42% in October 2022.
