Save yourself thanks to the fall detector of the Apple Watch Series 4

Fall detection Apple Watch Series 4

This will be one of those news that unfortunately we are sure that we will see more than once in the media and that is that the problem of falls or similar in people is common. For now, in this case, a person residing in Sweden saved his life thanks to Apple Watch Series 4 fall detector.

We are not talking about an older person, far from it, it is about a 34-year-old named Gustavo Rodríguez. In this case, after activating the fall detector, Gustavo suddenly felt bad due to a problem in his back and, unable to react, he fell to the ground.

It is just at that moment that the clock acts. Once the person is on the ground, the fall detector goes into operation and in this case the Apple Watch Series 4 did what it had to do. Gustavo's hit against the ground made the watch react and this saved the life of the young man.

Remember that the watch makes an emergency call automatically when we do not move from the ground after a minute, but before that it does not allow you to activate it manually or deactivate it on the screen. In this case, a problem in the back of Gustavo, a resident of Sweden, caused him to fall to the ground and Your Series 4 will make the emergency call to notify of the event since it could not move.

I already said at the beginning that it will not be the first of the cases that we have similar with this type of event unfortunately, but it is good to know how to activate this function on our watch if you are under 65 years old (since in those cases it is deactivated). So it doesn't hurt that we have this new function active and here you will see how to do it.
