With the recent releases of the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2, many people are curious about the advanced features of these devices. One question that often comes up is whether the Apple Watch can dial 911 if your heart stops.
The short answer is: maybe.
The Apple Watch has a built-in heart rate monitor that can detect heart rhythm irregularities. It does have a number of features that can help you stay safe in an emergency, including: Fall Detection, Emergency SOS, and Medical ID.
But, if your heart stops, your Apple Watch will not be able to detect it and dial 911 automatically. However, you can still use your Apple Watch to call emergency services manually, or you can use the Medical ID feature to provide emergency responders with important information about your health.
However, there are a number of third-party apps that can be used to track your heart rate and detect cardiac arrest. Some of these apps can even automatically dial 911 if you experience cardiac arrest. However, it’s important to note that these apps are not regulated by the FDA, and they may not be reliable or accurate.
To conclude, the Apple Watch is a powerful tool that can be used to stay safe in an emergency. However, it’s important to remember that it is not a medical device and cannot detect cardiac arrest automatically.
