According to the documentation presented by the search giant, the development of a compact antenna is crucial for the production of a smart ring. This is because the wearable device needs to communicate with other devices and also receive Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals without consuming too much power from its low-capacity battery.

In Google’s documentation, the company further explains that developing this antenna poses a significant challenge since the human body is electrically conductive. Therefore, the patented design features an 8×8 mm antenna capable of receiving signals without interference, thanks to its production with a microwave dielectric substrate.

Finally, the search giant asserts that the antenna could also be applied to other wearables, such as watches. However, since this is just a patent, it remains uncertain whether this antenna will ever reach the market as a product.

In any case, it is essential to note that companies like Samsung, Google, Xiaomi, Huawei, and others are keeping a close eye on the growing market for smart rings.
