Apple Watch fall detection works perfectly after Swedish man collapses
One of the centerpiece features of the new Apple Watch Series 4 is its fall detection, the ability it has to know when, say, its wearer has taken a tumble or collapsed for whatever reason. The fall detection kicks in, recognizes something potentially bad has happened, and helpfully offers to call emergency responders. If you don't answer, of course, maybe because a loss of consciousness has accompanied the fall, an automatic call from the watch for help comes next. Except for that last part, which thankfully wasn't necessary, all of the preceding steps happened exactly as they were supposed to recently for a 34-year-old man, who credits his Apple Watch with coming to his rescue after crippling back pain led him to collapse near his stove.
