The Korean manufacturer would thus be working with several companies to reserve the modules and components necessary for the construction of such a gadget. As a reminder, last year Samsung filed a patent with the US office for a ring comprising an optical heart monitor and an electroencephalogram. The ring would also be able to control other devices remotely, such as a smartphone or TV.

According to several marketing research firms, such rings will become popular in the years to come, because they are easy to wear and very reliable in terms of collecting biometric data. They are also more durable than a typical smartwatch. Note that such rings already exist, both on the market and in the form of imaginary concepts.
