Samsung preemptively sues Oura first—so Oura cannot sue Samsung—over smart ring patent claims

Recommended Posts



In a surprising turn of events, Samsung, the multinational conglomerate, has taken the offensive in a legal battle with Oura, the reigning champion of the smart ring market. The Korean tech giant has filed a lawsuit against Oura, seeking a declaratory judgment of non-infringement on five of Oura’s patents.


This preemptive move comes ahead of the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Ring, a new entrant in the smart ring market. The lawsuit asserts that Oura has a history of using its patent portfolio to litigate against smaller competitors in the wearable tech market. Samsung’s legal action hints at the possibility of similar actions being taken against them.


The Galaxy Ring is Samsung’s latest venture into the wearable tech market, following the discontinuation of its Tizen smartwatches. The company is seeking judgment from a federal court in California, asserting that the upcoming Galaxy Ring doesn’t infringe on five Oura patents that cover features common to virtually all smart rings.


This legal tussle between Samsung and Oura marks a significant moment in the wearable tech industry. It underscores the competitive nature of the market and the lengths companies will go to protect their innovations.
