One of the pretty exciting features Apple added to it’s latest Watch 4 was the Fall Detection. Where-in the watch detects if you have fallen with the help of the accelerometer and that if you aren’t able to get up the Watch calls the Emergency Services on it’s own and also your Emergency Contacts to help you out.
This feature is disabled by default for all the people who are less than 65 years of age. It actually makes sense, but anyway if you wish to enable this feature you can follow few easy mentioned steps and get started with Fall Detection on your new Apple Watch Series 4.
How to Enable Fall Detection
- On iPhone, open the Watch app.
- Scroll down and tap on Emergency SOS.
- When toggling on Fall Detection, Apple warns that more physically active users may trigger Fall Detection even when you haven’t fallen. This is due to high impact activity, and may appear as a fall.
- Tap on Confirm if you’re okay with that.
That’s all about it, you’ve successfully activated Fall Detection on your Apple Watch Series 4. But there is no guarantee that the Watch will be able to detect all of your falls, so let us know in the comment section below if this worked out for you!
