This is how the fall detection of the new Apple Watch works in a real case

How to test the Apple Watch Series 4 fall detection? Nobody wants to take a hit and drop to the ground to see that it works well. However, in Sweden, Gustavo Rodríguez, a 34-year-old man, has verified it for himself. He was in the kitchen when, without apparent explanation, a back pain knocked him to the floor. With the strong pain in his lower back and unable to get up, he checked on his wrist that fall detection had been activated on your Apple Watch Series 4. Fortunately, the man was conscious and could call a family member from the watch itself, without even having the mobile in the same room.
