This disclosure describes a wearable device with a ring-like form factor that can be used to enable user interaction with AR/VR glasses and other devices. The ring-like device is lightweight, has a small form factor, and enables the user to discreetly interact with the AR/VR glasses. The device includes components such as a microphone, a context-aware touchbar, a battery, an antenna, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)/magnetometer, etc. User inputs to the ring-like device are transmitted wirelessly via a microcontroller of the device. Multiple output modalities can be supported, e.g., haptics vibration, speaker, flexible display, etc. The ring-like wearable device can offer additional functionality such as navigation, user identification, payments, health monitoring, etc.
