The Samsung Galaxy Ring can get up to nine days of battery life

The Samsung Galaxy Ring can get up to nine days of battery life

When we got some hands-on time with Samsung's Galaxy Ring earlier this week at Mobile World Conference, battery life was still a mystery. However, Samsung has since confirmed that the smart ring will work between five and nine days on a single charge.

The estimate comes from a few sources. As spotted 9to5Google,Korean outlet Financial news Reports indicate that Dr. Hoon Bak, Samsung's vice president of digital health, gave reporters this number during a press conference. Robot body Also spotted a tk m a report Samsung Electronics President Roh Tae-moon was quoted as saying that the ring can be used for up to nine days.

But don't put too much stock in Samsung's battery estimates just yet. The Oura Ring's battery lasts up to seven days, but in practice I only get three to five days because I enable continuous SpO2 monitoring. The same may be true for the Galaxy Ring. We don't know how The Galaxy Ring will use its own sensors. Some wearable devices take periodic readings to extend battery life; Another sample continuously; Others give you the option to choose. Enabling continuous tracking usually significantly reduces battery life.

Battery life can also depend on the size of the ring you get. With smartwatches, the smaller models tend to have a slightly shorter battery life, simply because they can't stuff larger batteries inside. The same can be said for Samsung's Galaxy Ring, which comes in multiple sizes.

Regardless, the nine-day battery life may be attractive to those who are tired of charging their smartwatches every day. It's also a draw for smart rings in general. In addition to being smaller and more discreet, they lack battery-intensive displays. The vast majority of them are passive trackers that only interact with your phone to sync data.
