Apple Watch saves a man’s life by detecting his fall

Apple announced the Fall Detection feature last year when it launched the Series 4 of the wearable. And now we have the story of a man from Spokane in Washington State whose father’s life is safe after a serious accident just because of the Apple Watch.

Gabe Burdett planned to go on a mountain bike trip together with his dad Bob. While waiting for his dad, Gabe got a message from Apple Watch of his dad stating he had “detected a difficult drop.” Apple Watch shared with Gabe the place map of the difficult drop. This’ drop detection ‘ function is built-in for Apple Watch Series 4 and subsequent versions.

The Watch sent the details of the place of the accident to 911 and also to Bob, who was listed in his emergency contact. Bob reaching the place found out that it was empty and then found that the location was updated to a nearby hospital making him possible to meet his wounded father within short span of time.

Budrett said,

If you own an Apple Watch, set up your hard fall detection, it’s not just for when you fall off a roof or a ladder,” Burdett further posted.

Had he fallen somewhere on the High Drive trails or another remote area, the location would have clued EMS in on where to find him. Amazing technology and so glad he had it

He also mentioned that his father is going through some X-Rays and will be fine, and this is how the new technology built-in to the Apple Watch saved a man’s precious life.
