According to a report on the South Korean website The Elec, Apple is accelerating the development of a smart ring, which will monitor the health indicators of the users.

The idea of ​​a wearable ring is not new to Apple, as several previously filed patents indicate, but the desire to speed up development is reportedly due to Samsung's expected entry into this market with its own ring later this year.



According to the report, Apple closely monitors the market and works with the idea that a smart ring can be a popular and less "cumbersome" alternative to a smart watch.

The advantages of a ring include more comfortable wearing for a long time, and even comfortable wearing to sleep.



The rumors come on the back of Samsung announcing the existence of the Galaxy Ring at the "Galaxy Unpacked 2024" launch event last month.

Estimates are that the product is expected to enter mass production in the second half of the year, and will be fully presented in August.

Today, the smart ring market is led by Oura Ring, manufactured by the Finnish technology company Oura Health.

The ring collects data on activity, heart rate, breathing rate and sleep and transmits them via Bluetooth to the application.

The third generation of the ring can also measure body temperature and menstrual cycle, and its battery lasts about a week on a single charge.
