Apple Watch fall detection disabled by default … unless you’re old

If it detects a fall, it will "tap" your wrist, sound an alarm, and display an alert.

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.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is about as popular as expected, needing around a month to ship from the manufacturer's United States e-store if you order it today, but if you've already received an early copy, it might not be a good idea to start tearing it down and verify its repairability.

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.

Apple is noting that if you do intense physical activity, you will have a higher chance of triggering a false positive Fall Detection warning.

It made sense to peer into the iPhone XS first, but now we've gotten an inside look at the Apple Watch 4. When a wearer witnesses a hard fall, they'll hear an alarm go off with a significant vibration, soon after which they'll be able to choose from three options. 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.

Apple has also managed to cleverly use the speaker grille in the Apple Watch Series 4 for the barometric sensor instead of giving it its own hole like it had to do with the Apple Watch Series 3.

The iPhone "XS" and "XS Max" support dual SIM and dual standby functionality and are fuelled by Apple's latest A12 Bionic chipset built on 7-nm design and a new neural engine with an 8-core dedicated machine learning (ML) processor.

That footage is what's playing on the Apple Watch when you choose the face. The Apple Watch Series 4 now boasts a 291.8mAh battery, which is 4 percent bigger than its previous model of 42mm.

In the end, accessing the components within the Apple Watch Series 4 is relatively straightforward, and the device earned a respectable 6 out of 10 score for repairability.
