Smart ring surprise from Black Shark

Black Shark, under the umbrella of Xiaomi, is a brand known for its smart gaming phones. However, the brand has not released a gaming phone since 2022. Although rumors about the company's departure from the phone market have been around for a long time, there has been no official confirmation on this matter. The brand, which has been silent for a long time, broke this silence with a surprise product and introduced a smart ring.

In the post made via Black Shark's Weibo account, it appears that the smart ring is quite similar to Oura Ring and Samsung Galaxy Ring. Black Shark's ring will be sold for 599 yuan (2745 TL) in China. It is worth noting that this price is much more affordable compared to alternatives.

Black Shark's smart ring will primarily focus on exercise management and health tracking during sleep. In the company's Weibo posts, the ring's features such as counting steps, measuring distance traveled and energy consumed are mentioned. Users can choose from running, walking and cycling modes.

The sleep tracking features of the ring can also measure sleep quality within the framework of heart rate, HRV and other parameters. There is no clear information yet about the smart ring's other health capabilities.

Black Shark can take its smart ring out of China under the Xiaomi brand

The smart ring, which is only 2.2 mm thick, offers a battery life of up to 180 days with the charging case. It is currently unclear whether the smart ring, which will first be released in China, will be available for sale on a global scale. It will not be a surprise if this expansion is made with the Xiaomi brand.
