Samsung launched its latest wearable lineup this week. The Galaxy Ring, Galaxy Watch7, and Watch Ultra take center stage, offering a range of features designed to elevate fitness tracking and everyday convenience.

The Galaxy Watch7 boasts a sleek design and a new BioActive sensor that tracks both heart rate and body composition. Improved sleep tracking and advanced running analysis cater to the health-conscious user. The Watch7 comes in two sizes – 40mm and 44mm – with Bluetooth and LTE connectivity options.

Prices start at PHP 16,990 for the 40mm Bluetooth model and PHP 18,990 for the 44mm mode. The 40mm LTE model, on the other hand, is priced at PHP 19,990.

For the more adventurous user, the Galaxy Watch Ultra boasts a rugged design and enhanced durability, with a Titanium Grade 4 frame and 10ATM water resistance. Additionally, the device can operate at a wider range of altitudes, from 500 meters below sea level to 9,000 meters high.

It features a larger display with a peak brightness of 3,000 nits, a bigger battery offering up to 100 hours in Power Saving mode, a newly added Quick Button, and an Emergency Siren for safety.

Geared towards outdoor enthusiasts, the Watch Ultra is built to withstand even the toughest conditions. For the Philippine market, it comes in one size and carries a price tag of PHP 40,990.

However, Filipino fans hoping to get their hands on the Galaxy Ring will be disappointed. Samsung representatives confirmed during a closed media event that the ring is not coming to the Philippines. Of course, that may all change in the future.

The Galaxy Ring features a 10ATM water resistance and a Titanium Grade 5 finish. It is lightweight, weighing from 2.3 grams to 3.0 grams, and offers 24/7 health monitoring and up to seven days of battery life.

Despite the Galaxy Ring’s absence, the Galaxy Watch7 and Watch Ultra offer compelling options for Filipino consumers seeking a powerful and stylish wearable experience. The wearables will be available for pre-order starting July 10, with general availability starting July 31.
