I’ve been very impressed with the safety features Apple has been adding. This in addition to satellite messaging on the iPhone equates to a safety net I’ve long wished for when out solo adventuring.
When Mike Menand took a tumble while hiking, his Apple Watch was a game changer. The fall detection feature kicked in and called for help, all without him needing to reach his phone. Imagine you’re cycling solo and take a hard fall – this feature could be your hero. It smartly figures out if you’ve had a nasty spill and if you don’t tap ‘I’m OK’ within a minute, it calls emergency services and pings your location to your emergency contacts. It’s not just about dealing with the worst; it’s about quick help when you need it most.
