Fall detection including the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5 is a powerful tool to help in a dangerous situation. When unfortunately there is a situation we are working on, we see a big fall, the clock has a full functionality and that works: It vibrates, sounds the alarm and shows a warning on the screen. At that time you can choose what you want to do, call the emergency (from the clock itself) or do not disable the alert, either because there is a false alarm due to a busy ride or because we fall while we are alive.
The Apple Watch is smart enough to see if you move or not after a fall, and will wait for your response to the alarm. If you're still because you can't move or don't know after a fall, the clock will continue to automatically call the emergency room if we do not respond to a message which appears on the screen for the next 60 seconds. After this, if you do not respond the contact will start immediately, and a 30-second counter will appear when, if something goes wrong, you can still cancel the emergency services intervention.
After this time and understanding that something really happened, The Apple Watch will continue to send messages to emergency contacts informing you that a crash has occurred in your area

What happens during the emergency call process?
The Apple Watch is set to play a message that indicates an accident As well as emergency services, they will share your links so they can find you. The message will be played until we press the clock screen to stop. At that time, if the situation allows we can have a discussion with the employees who care for us. When the call ends, we will have to click on the phone icon on the clock and confirm that we actually want to hold on.
How to work Apple Fall Series 4 and 5 fall detection
Fall detection automatically activates when you set our age when you set our clock and we are over 65 years old.
If we want to use it manually, we simply follow these steps:
1st Access the app “Watch” on your iPhone.
2nd Click "My watch" in the bottom left corner.
Third search and click on the menu that will be open "SOS emergency".
4th Slide the corresponding button "Falling Gains".
If we want to discourage you for some reason, the process we must follow is the same.
How to make an emergency call after a fall
In case we have a fall but know that it is not necessary to wait for the Apple Watch to do it on its own, and we can avoid that wait for 60 + 30 seconds.
When the clock detects that you are hit by a fall, a menu with two sliding buttons will activate the screen. To drag the first "Emergency SOS" from left to right we will continue to contact emergency services. Skipping the second "I'm alive" will dismiss the warning.
Once we have contacted the emergency services, as we mentioned earlier, when we press up and press the button that appears on the Watch screen we will be asked to confirm again that we really want to shut down the phone, to avoid accidental loss of connection. If we are really done with the phone we will make sure we want to hold on and it will end
How to add emergency contacts to your iPhone and Watch

By clicking on "Start" we will go to a directory where we can show our conditions, allergies, weight and other references on the iPhone screen during recovery. The part that concerns us in this case is at the bottom of this menu, where it shows "Emergency Contacts".
4º To add an emergency contact we will give you a "+" and then a drop in the internet where our agenda contacts will appear, we will continue to select the one we want to move.
From here you will ask us to indicate what our relationship with this person is. Once this is done, the contact will be assigned to the emergency contact.
In the event that we have selected an emergency contact and that we want to change or insert a new one, when "Medical data" is reached in the top right corner a "Edit" button will appear, when we click on We can change pre-selected data about our terms and others and be able to change our emergency contacts again.
