The great news from Google is that Pixel Watch fall detection is starting today, as Apple Watch with the same name launched in 2018. In Google’s version, motion sensors and algorithms determine if you have fallen off the ground and need help. However, Google denies providing this watch’s accidental call emergency service for winter sports accidents, as Apple Watch’s crash has offered.
The pixel watch will vibrate if it detects a possible fall and lack of movement for about 30 seconds. It also checks up on you via alarm and displays an onscreen message. You can Tap the “I’m Ok” Button to dismiss the alert if the fall isn’t bad and Tap “I fell & need Help” if you want to call 911. In addition, if you haven’t responded to the alert, it will automatically contact emergency services and play them an automated message request to help you out at the location where you fell off, even though the Google Pixel watch allows you to speak to the 911 operator by yourself. For the latest news, you can enable the update page feature in the Watch Companion App on your paired mobile or the pixel Watch Personal Safety app.
Are you getting worried about doing burpees or hitting the ski slopes may trigger an accidental emergency call? Here’s a Google announcement in the post, which says your pixel Watch knows the difference between detecting hard falls and doing a vigorous physical activity or instant getting up from a minor stumble. All credit to our machine learning algorithms and thorough testing.
Moreover, the motion sensors and algorithms can track sudden changes, your body’s responses, and spontaneous reactions to falling. The makers claim, “We trained its processor using a wide variety of human and stimulation fall data and other motion ways to detect actual falls and avoid potential false alarms correctly.”
Undoubtedly, Google’s Pixel Watch looks cool and handy, and you would love to wear it on your wrist with a unique fall detection feature.
