As for smartphones that support pairing, the options may be more limited. Galaxy family devices will obviously work without problems. Samsung also stated that it will ensure that users of other Android devices can also use the Galaxy Ring without having to change phones.

For iPhone owners, however, the same will not be offered. The company is considering limiting the device's functionality on iOS and hopes that Ring will make fans of Apple devices migrate to a Galaxy smartphone.
