Apple Watch 4 fall detection disabled by default

Apple Watch 4 fall detection disabled by default

So, how good is the Apple Watch's fall detection? While no date is reportedly set for a global roll-out, Apple is working on obtaining clearance and is expected to release an update adding the new feature in once approval is obtained. "The more physically active you are, the more likely you are to trigger fall detection due to high impact activity that can appear to be a fall", Apple explains. The user has three options to choose from on the screen, 'I fell but I'm okay, ' 'I did not fall, ' or a slider to contact emergency services immediately.

In addition to this, several YouTube channels over the weekend posted videos testing the Fall Detector and how hard a fall has to be to trigger it.

Users can switch ON Fall Detection by heading over to My Watch Tap Emergency SOS and toggle Fall Detection on. Apple studied falls through tests involving 2,500 participants, then used the data to create an algorithm that can identify what's actually a fall and what's not.

Tiger Woods returns to Tour Championship with share of lead
Rickie Fowler was in mid-dissection of his quite-fine 65 on Thursday, when just over his shoulder there came a mighty roar from the 18th green.

Overseas customers looking to get the new Apple Watch, and keen on the new ECG feature shouldn't worry, though. There is some margin of error that you should keep in mind.

So far, only the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given clearance, sending the iPhone-maker confirmation on September 11 - just one day before Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook took to the stage at the company's headquarters to announce the product. Apple COO Jeff Williams said during the keynote event that the Series 4 would be your "indispensable communication and fitness companion". There's also a 64-bit, dual-core S4 processor inside the machine, which is up to twice as fast compared to the previous S3. Its speaker is also 50% louder than the Series 3.

iFixit says Apple clearly put a lot of thought into redesigning the watch both inside and out. The battery life remains similar to last year's model. The GPS + Cellular model is going to cost you $499.
