If you wonder how to use the fall detection feature of Apple Watch, we are going to help you out in this tutorial. It is a very useful feature that can help us in emergencies. It doesn’t come activated by default, but no worries because it is a really easy process.
Any Apple Watch from Series 4 that is updated to the latest version is able to use the fall detection feature.
How to use the fall detection feature of Apple Watch?
Starting with the Apple Watch Series 4 it is possible to activate the fall detection on our smartwatch. If the Apple Watch detects a hard fall while we are using it, it will start giving warnings and display an alert for us to call the emergency services directly.
In case we do not answer, it will call the emergency services and alert our emergency contact, which we will set manually. This will happen when if it detects that we haven’t moved for one minute.
To activate this feature just follow these steps:
- Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
- Click on Emergency SOS.
- Activate the feature.
It is important to configure the emergency contact that will receive a message with our location. Similarly, we can configure our medical record to indicate allergies, medical notes, blood type, and other relevant information so it can be seen on the lock screen of the iPhone.
Similarly, by activating this function, we can call the emergency services by pressing the button on the Apple Watch.
