The cost of smart rings can vary. Basic smart rings with no advanced technology outside of NFC can cost from $10 to as much as $200. Branded smart rings with more sophisticated functionalities can cost as much as $350.
For instance, Ultrahuman Ring Air (check on Amazon)—a smart ring that tracks sleep, heart rate, activities, and blood sugar (very rare!)—costs $349. Meanwhile, Jakcom R5—a passive smart ring for keyless access—costs $39 (check on Amazon).
If you are wondering why the price discrepancy, do note that the more functionalities a smart ring has, the more sensors it needs to carry. In the case of health monitoring smart rings, they carry a few sensors for heart rate tracking, sleep tracking, activity tracking, and blood oxygen monitoring.

For heart rate tracking, it requires multiple LED sensors, while activity tracking usually needs an accelerometer and a gyroscope. In the case of Ultrahuman Ring Air, it has to carry a blood sugar monitoring sensor.
In contrast, NFC rings are cheaper because they only have the NFC technology, which does not really cost much. In most cases, they do not carry a battery component.
