Apple Watch Series 4 Fall Detection Test

Before continuing, you should know that the video has no scientific stance; it is not based on a rigorous and indisputable series of tests. Therefore, the variant results obtained should be taken in moderation.

In the video, the Apple Watch Series 4 is subjected to a series of tests to determine what can be considered a “fall” and what can not be. First of all, it is important to note that, by default, fall detection is disabled. So you need to activate it by going to the Watch app on your iPhone. When you activate the functionality via the Watch application on your iPhone, it warns you that ” the more physically active you are, the more likely you are to trigger fall detection due to high impact activity that may appear to be a fall

The tests are carried out in a trampoline park. Note that the Apple Watch is not able to detect falls when they occur on the trampoline, the foam pit or on a gym mat (in this case on a soft surface). However, when you fall on a rather hard surface, the Apple Watch detects the fall and sends a notification to the user to ask him if everything is fine, if he has not fallen or if he has need emergency services.

This new feature is quite impressive, because the watch is able to detect the impact of falls in order to send the notification. The functionality itself is quite useful, and if Apple is thinking about tweaking it, the Apple Watch can still continue to save lives.
