Apple Watch is known for its health and productivity features. One such important health feature known to save lives across the world is Fall Detection.
Fall Detection on Apple Watch is designed to detect when you go through a hard fall while the watch is on your wrist. When it detects one, it sounds an alarm, taps you on the wrist, and shows an alert.
The Fall Detection feature relies on Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensors on the Apple Watch. It uses data from the sensors to analyze the wrist trajectory and impact acceleration paired with a custom algorithm to detect a hard fall.
When you have a hard fall, it automatically enables an emergency alarm and hand vibrations on the watch. After sending the alert, it waits for the wearer to respond- you can choose to call the emergency services or dismiss the alert by tapping Close, the crown, or “I’m OK” on the screen. However, suppose the watch does not get any response within a minute and detects that you’re immobile. In that case, it will make an alert sound that gets louder significantly to capture the attention of the people around for help.[mai mult...]
