Apple Watch Series 4 teardown reveals the magic behind the redesigned wearable

12		View

When "significant, hard fall" is detecting while you're wearing your Apple Watch, you get a tap on the wrist, an alarm sounds, and an alert is displayed.

As found in an Apple Support page by one of the Reddit users, it has been clearly mentioned that the fall detector needs to be manually enabled.

Insides aside, the Apple Watch 4's external changes are noticeable, but only if you've been paying close attention to the smartwatch line over the years. "The more physically active you are, the more likely you are to trigger fall detection due to high impact activity that can appear to be a fall", Apple explains.

The Tim Cook-led company launched the Apple Watch Series 4, alongside the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR on September 12.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is a massive upgrade to the wearable device for both hardware and software, especially when it comes to health and fitness features. The alert includes three different options, one of them being "Emergency SOS" to contact emergency services. The watch can now automatically detect falls using the next-gen gyroscope and call emergency services.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has made a giant leap forward in terms of design as well as functionality. You can tell Apple Watch you fell but you're okay, or you can tell it you didn't fall at all. But on harder surfaces it worked fine. This is despite the latest Apple Watch featuring a chassis that's 6 percent slimmer. It will prove useful to people anxious about their heart health.

The ECG capability of the Apple Watch helps the device sense atrial fibrillation, an irregular heart rate that can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. 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.

Apple does state, however, that "Apple Watch can not detect all falls".
