Why Nothing CEO is asking Samsung president to 'call' him

Samsung launched its first smart ring – Galaxy Ring during the Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris yesterday. The device features a compact form factor and comes integrated with a host of ehealth and fitness features.

In its official press release, Samsung says that its Galaxy Ring features a lightweight design, weighing from 2.3 grams to 3.0 grams to ensure comfort during extended wear. It’s been less than 24 hours since the device launched and it has already become a subject of criticism. Nothing CEO Carl Pei is taking a dig at the device, specifically its design. The CEO took to microblogging site X (formerly known as Twitter) to mock the design of Galaxy Ring.

A description on Samsung's website reads that the new device ‘Feels like nothing. Goes with everything’. Sharing the screenshot of the description, Pei sarcastically wrote on X “TM Roh - call me if you need design help. We can accelerate our vision of making tech fun again!”.

Samsung says that the Galaxy Ring is designed for 24x7 health monitoring. It comes with 10ATM water resistance and a Titanium Grade 5 finish that’s built to survive harsh conditions. The ring has a claimed battery life of up to seven days and comes with a charging case that includes LED lighting for status indication.

Samsung Galaxy Ring also comes with a temperature sensor that brings a Cycle Tracking feature. The Galaxy Ring provides real-time heart health monitoring with Heart Rate Alert, notifying users of unusual heart rates through the Samsung Health app. It includes a Live Heart Rate check for detailed heart rate information. The ring supports active lifestyles with Auto Workout Detection for walking and running and Inactive Alert for daily fitness reminders.
