Apple Watch 4 fall detection disabled by default

FDA Recognizes New Apple Watch as Medical Device

Don't just assume your new Apple Watch Series 4 will be there to help you when you drunkenly fall into a neighbor's flowerbed on your way home from the bar.

Amazingly, despite the number of components involved, Apple Watch Series 4 scores pretty well on iFixit's repairability scale: 6 out of 10.

If the Watch detects movement, it will wait for a response. While it's said to work accurately, it is important to know that the feature is not automatically enabled unless you're 65 years of age or older.

Don't try to deliberately fall over on a hard surface just to test the Fall Detection feature because it's turned off for most users by default. If you are immobile for a minute, it will launch a 15-second countdown before automatically calling 911 and messaging your emergency contacts.

Depression & Storm Currently In Atlantic Area
While some storms are just getting started, Tropical Depression 11 near the Windward Islands dissipated Sunday afternoon. It was located about 1,170 miles west-southwest of the Azores and moving west at 3 mph, the hurricane center said.

Initial glance upon internals provides more or less the same look as previous iterations of the smartwatch with the battery and the Taptic Engine covering most of the place.

While most people were putting on their new Apple Watch Series 4 over the weekend, iFixit was tearing theirs apart.

The iPhone maker is positioning the Apple Watch Series 4 as your go-to fitness tracking device. It has a built-in Electrocardiogram (ECG) that can detect if your heart is beating normally or you have symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). While Apple seems content in holding the line on Apple Watch battery life, Samsung is heavily touting the 4-day battery life on its competing Galaxy Watch (we saw 5 days our own testing). iFixit seems to reckon that Apple if could manage to shrink down the massive Taptic Engine, it could squeeze in a larger battery. The tiny battery has 1.12 WHr of capacity, giving it about 4 percent greater capacity than the Series 3 (1.07 WHr). It sports an improved 64-bit dual-core S4 processor, which is twice as fast as the S3 chip inside the Apple Watch Series 3.
