The Apple Watch is capable of many things such as detecting when a user falls, or an irregular heart beat, and it seems that in the future, it could come with sensors where it could also be capable of detecting if a person may be exhibiting symptoms and signs that they could have Parkinson’s disease or some kind of tremor related health issue.
One of the features of the Apple Watch is the SOS feature, where it is similar to the SOS feature on the iPhone where users will be able to quickly call for help and reach emergency services. This is exactly what a couple of kayakers did when they found themselves stranded in the sea after their kayaks sank and they were not wearing lifejackets.
So Black Friday was last week which meant that there were a lot of great deals to be had. One man by the name of John Browne thought so when he came across an Amazon deal for the Apple Watch Series 4 where it was enjoying a £100 discount off its original price, where he only ended up paying £299 for it.
Due to the fact that more of our devices come with GPS built into them, tracking them down has become easier than ever. This means that should thieves ever decide to steal a smartphone or smartwatch, they better keep it turned off because leaving it on means that the GPS has been turned on as well.
Imagine giving a presentation, only to be halfway interrupted and potentially contradicted. How embarrassing would that be, right? Now imagine that happening live on TV where the interruption was not only unintentional, but also done in such a deadpan manner that you just can’t help but laugh.
Apple has been steadily making the Apple Watch the ultimate health and fitness wearable, where with every watchOS update and new Apple Watch model, they are introducing new features. With the Series 4, Apple introduced an ECG monitoring tool, and it looks like in the future, it seems that the Apple Watch could even potentially detect muscle movements.
Ever since the Apple Watch was launched, we have heard how it has improved on the lives of its users. For example, there have been multiple examples of how the Apple Watch has improved on the health and fitness levels of its wearers by reminding them to stand and also pushing them to accomplish their move/exercise goals.
In the past, we have heard countless stories about how the Apple Watch’s heart rate detection feature, and more recently its ECG feature, have saved many lives. Is it all fluke? Could it merely be coincidental that all these reported cases are from people who so happen to wear an Apple Watch instead of a competing wearable?
When the Apple Watch Series 2 was first released, it introduced water-resistance to the smartwatch, allowing users to take it with them to swim. However, according to a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he believes that Apple could expand on the water-resistance feature of the Apple Watch in next year’s model.
One of the features found in Apple’s newer Apple Watches is fall detection. What this does is that if it detects that you have fallen, it will prompt you to respond, in which failing to do so will result in the watch calling emergency services on your behalf. We’ve seen this used to great effect in several instances which resulted in several lives saved.
One of the defining new features of the Apple Watch that Apple introduced to the Series 4 last year is fall detection. It was originally designed for the elderly if they were to fall and needed to call for help, but it seems to have proven to be a pretty useful tool in saving lives of people who might have gotten into accidents.
The Apple Watch comes with a pretty useful tool in the form of fall detection, and here’s how you can turn it on.
Just like most watches, the Apple Watch’s band probably does not fit everyone perfectly. There might be some days it would feel loose, and other days it might feel a bit too tight. However, Apple thinks that they might have the solution to that problem by creating a band that will be “consistently tight”.
One of the biggest battery drains of our smartphones would be its display. This is why it has been advised that we don’t crank up the brightness of the display to the maximum. It is also why more companies are adopting OLED tech because unlike LCD, OLED has the potential to be more energy efficient as the individual pixels can be turned off when not in use (like in dark […]
