I had my first “Have You Fallen?” moment with my Apple Watch

Post by hardus77 » Fri May 17, 2019 9:56 pm

Hello everyone,

I was driving in a parking garage today, and the stupidest bitch driving a huge SUV decided to turn the wrong way down the aisle right into my path, and i had to slam on my horn (while slamming on my brakes) to avoid an impact. The watch was on the arm that I slammed my horn with, and during a heated exchange with her dipshit boyfriend hanging out of the passenger side, I received an alert on my watch that it had “detected a fall.” My watch asked me to press one of two icons, “I’m okay” or “Send an SOS.” I pressed “I’m okay” and https://vlc.onl/ it asked me again if I’m okay, and I pressed the “I’m okay” icon a second time. This technology works. It’s amazing. I understood why I received this message, because the impact of my hand hitting the horn was quite substantial, as if I was falling off of a bicycle and hitting my hand on the pavement. My Apple Watch now appears to be well worth the money for the peace of mind, in case I do fall and need emergency services. My only question, is this: if I’m not able to press the “I’m okay” or the "SOS" icon, is there a time limit that the Watch will detect no press, and call emergency services anyway, in lieu of my not pressing an icon? Appvalley Tweakbox Thank you!

Welcome! Appears it will call if you are immobile after the fall.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208944

If your Apple Watch detects that you're moving, it waits for you to respond to the alert and won't automatically call emergency services. If your watch detects that you have been immobile for about a minute, it will make the call automatically. After the call ends, your watch sends a message to your emergency contacts with your location letting them know that your watch detected a hard fall and dialed emergency services.
