The South Korean tech giant Samsung seems to be working on several fitness-related wearables. Today, news about such products surfaced on the internet. First, the Galaxy Fit 3 was spotted in a retail store in Tanzania. Then, a senior executive at the company revealed the launch timeline of the Galaxy Ring. Since there’s much to cover, let’s start without any further ado.
Samsung Galaxy Fit 3’s Retail Box Reveals Several Details
A post on Samsung Community reveals a picture of several retail boxes of the upcoming Galaxy Fit 3 wearable. The image is from a retail store in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The printed price on the boxes, i.e., 250,000 Tanzanian shillings, suggests that it could cost around Rs. 8,000 in India.
Previously, the fitness band appeared on one of Samsung’s regional websites, confirming its existence. Now, the image suggests that the bands have reached regional stores, indicating that the launch could occur sooner than expected.
Citing information from several reports, the Galaxy Fit 3 could come with a 1.6-inch rectangular AMOLED screen with over 100 watch faces. The fitness band should also be able to measure users’ heart rate and blood oxygen levels. In terms of battery life, the device should last up to 13 days on a single charge. It may also come with easily removable bands.
Samsung Galaxy Ring Confirmed To Launch In 2024
As mentioned earlier, Samsung’s senior executive, Daniel Seung Lee, has confirmed that the Galaxy Ring will arrive in the second half of 2024. Given that Samsung is expected to hold a Galaxy Unpacked event in the second half for the Z Fold 6 and Flip 6, there’s a good chance that the Ring could show up during the event.
Although we don’t know much about the device yet, several reports claim that it will feature PPG and ECG tracking, which refers to heart rate monitoring. The Ring could also be compatible with Galaxy Watches. Regarding colorways, the company is tipped to be working on three different options, one of which was showcased during the Galaxy S24 launch event.
