Boat Smart Ring wearable fitness tracker was launched in India on Monday. The smart wearable health monitoring device — as the name implies — takes the form of a ring that users can wear to track a range of health parameters. According to the firm, the device is designed to be lightweight and comfortable to use for extended periods of time. The ring was first teased after reports surfaced online about a rumoured Samsung Smart Ring device that could be announced in the future by the South Korean tech conglomerate.

Boat Smart Ring specifications, features
The Boat Smart Ring monitors various health parameters including your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) levels, sleep, and even body temperature. Steps, calories, and a range of sports modes can be tracked using the Boat Ring application. The app is available on the Google Play store and Apple’s App Store.
You can use the Boat Smart Ring to navigate through short-form video apps by swiping on the device, according to the company. However, the firm has not yet provided the list of compatible apps or which actions correspond to certain features.
You can also use gestures to control music playback, such as pausing, resuming, and changing tracks. These gestures can also be used to click photos on a linked smartphone, so you can capture group images using the ring as a remote and setting the phone up at a distance by using the primary camera for better image quality.
In an emergency, the Boat Smart Ring may also be used to activate SOS calls, according to the company. The device is made of ceramic and metallic materials. It has a 5ATM water resistance rating up to a depth of 50 metres. Boat claims the device offers 7 days of battery backup and the ring can be charged using the included charger.
