In this weekly column, Android Central Fitness Editor Michael Hicks talks about the world of wearables, apps, and fitness tech related to running and health, in his quest to get faster and more fit.

I feel like an idiot. Galaxy Unpacked 2024 happened an hour’s drive from my house, but I skipped my invite because I wasn’t especially excited about the Galaxy S24. Then Samsung surprised everyone by teasing its Galaxy Ring wearable, showing off an early prototype behind closed doors of the one Samsung device I desperately wanted.

Unless you own an Oura Ring, you may not know what the big deal is about the Galaxy Ring. Industry data suggests nearly a million people bought smart rings last year, but they’ve flown under the radar because no mainstream brands like Samsung or Apple have entered the fray — until now.
