Fitness tracking smart rings

Fatwaa ID: 2123

Is it permissable to wear a fitness tracking smart ring which is made from titanium for men?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A fitness tracker smart ring is used for health or medical related purposes. It is not primarily used for adornment. Thus, the laws pertaining to rings, especially that of the Hanafiyyah, would not be applicable to it with the exception of gold for men. Accordingly, it will be permissible to wear a fitness tracking smart ring made from titanium. However, if a person, male or female, wears this ring primarily for the purpose of adornment, then that will not be permissible according to the Hanafi legal school.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
