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.
For years, we have been hearing rumors that Google could be looking to make their own smartwatch. However, that has yet to materialize, but it looks like the company could be inching closer to making that a reality. This is because following the rumors, Google has officially acquired Fitbit for a whopping $2.1 billion.
The Apple Watch comes with a pretty useful tool in the form of fall detection, and here’s how you can turn it on.
In the early days of the wearable, they weren’t particularly attractive in terms of design. They were functional, but not necessarily aesthetically pleasing. However, Motorola came onto the scene with the Moto 360, which at that time was probably the best-looking smartwatch we had seen.
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 […]
The Apple Watch comes with a couple of health features that have helped save many lives over the years that the smartwatch was launched. Now according to a report from the Calgary Herald, it seems that the Apple Watch might have saved yet another life, although not necessarily in the way you might think.
One of the features Apple introduced in the Apple Watch Series 4 is fall detection. This feature, as its name implies, is designed to detect when a person has taken a fall, and if that person does not respond in time, it will then call emergency services on their behalf. It was also designed for elderly people in mind, who might slip and fall in the bath.
