Helio Ring: Amazfit's Smart Ring Finally Hits Stores

After being announced at CES 2024, the Helio Ring is finally available to buy.

Amazfit is moving into the US market with its highly anticipated Helio Ring, marking the company's first iteration of its smart ring technology. It was initially unveiled during CES 2024 and was one of the shows standouts.

The wearable Helio Ring is designed to complement the company's fitness trackers and tracks vital metrics such as heart rate, sleep patterns, electrodermal activity, blood oxygen levels, and stress levels.

To improve sleep patterns, it is capabable of analyzing the body's responses while ambient noises play from the user's phone during sleep. Based on these physiological cues, the app then adjusts the sounds to optimize sleep quality, promoting a more restful experience.
