In spite of the wide variety of sizes and styles offered by wearable fitness trackers—from large smartwatches to thin fitness bands—the ring design appears to be on the verge of becoming ubiquitous.

At MWC 2024, Samsung unveiled their new Galaxy Ring, which is rumored to include several health tracking capabilities. Also in August of last year, Apple patented a smart ring that could be activated by pressure and provided haptic feedback.

New information from Bloomberg, however, indicates that Apple has not yet begun active development on the smartphone. To take on Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses and improve upon Apple’s AirPods with cameras and sophisticated sensors, the tech giant may soon release a new line of smart glasses.

It is peculated that Apple plans to increase the number of its wearable devices beyond the present Apple Watch, AirPods, and the recently released Vision Pro headset. New AirPods with cameras and smart features are in the works, as are smart glasses and a smart ring.

It is claimed that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant isn’t currently working on a smart ring, but that Apple has considered creating one with Apple Watch-like health tracking capabilities.

But the ring would be cheaper than an Apple Watch, work with Apple’s health and fitness apps, and fit in with the Apple ecosystem, giving them more of an incentive to stay with Apple and not go to Android.

Reportedly, the business has also discussed creating smart spectacles similar to Meta’s Ray-Ban smart glasses, which were introduced last year. Gurman claims that medical sensors, speakers, and cameras might all be part of the smart eyewear. Featuring audio capabilities, larger batteries, an abundance of sensors, and AI capabilities, the glasses have the potential to supplant AirPods. Additionally, the price of Apple’s smart glasses would be less than that of the $3,499 Apple Vision Pro.

Another popular product that Apple is allegedly considering adding cameras and smart features to is the AirPods. According to latest reports, last year Apple began exploring the idea of incorporating high-tech artificial intelligence (AI), health sensors, and cameras into its headphones. People could benefit from the data collected by the cameras as they go about their everyday lives.

These wearable devices may never see the light of day, even if Apple is looking into developing them. Reportedly in development at the moment are a larger-than-an-iPhone foldable device and a HomePod refresh with a touchscreen.

However, Samsung’s Galaxy Ring is expected to make its debut in the latter half of 2024. This week at MWC 2024, the smart ring was revealed after first being announced at the Galaxy Unpacked event on January 17. As with the Galaxy Watch, the ring will presumably have health tracking features, including as a blood oxygen sensor, a sleep monitor, and a 24×7 heart rate monitor, in addition to other fitness tracking capabilities.
