⚠️ Detect a Fall
The Apple Watch Series 4 or higher comes with a useful safety feature called Fall Detection. If you take a hard fall that renders you unconscious or unable to move, your watch can automatically call emergency services.
To set this up on your iPhone, open the Watch app, tap the My Watch tab, swipe down, and tap the entry for Emergency SOS. Look for the option for Fall Detection and turn on the switch. If you fall, the watch will alert you. If you fail to respond, the watch will tap your wrist, sound an alarm, and then notify emergency services.
🧼 Wash your hands for 20 seconds
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, experts recommend washing your hands for 20 seconds to stop germs from spreading. Apple added a handwashing timer in watchOS 7, which detects when your hands are under running water and gives you a timer. If you make it all the way to 20 seconds, you’re rewarded with a thumbs up. Enable the handwashing reminder directly on your watch by going to Settings > Handwashing and turning on the switch for Handwashing Timer.
🏋🏼 Track workouts and activities on Apple Watch
Apple Watch can help you stay in shape and track workouts. WatchOS 7 brings four new activity tracking options to the Workout app: dancing, core training, cooldown, and functional strength training. And later this year, Apple expects to launch its at-home fitness service, Fitness+.
🩸 Measure your blood oxygen level
A consistently low blood oxygen level could be a sign of respiratory or pulmonary issues. With an Apple Watch Series 6 and watchOS 7 or later, you can measure your level using a built-in app and oximeter, which tells you if you’re getting enough oxygen to your brain.
To set up this sensor, open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap the setting for Blood Oxygen. Make sure the switch for Blood Oxygen Measurements is turned on. You can also control when the sensor takes background readings by enabling or disabling In Sleep Mode and In Theater Mode.
Open the Blood Oxygen app on your watch to take a reading. Make sure your watch is not too low on your wrist and that the band is snug but comfortable. Keep your hand and wrist still during the reading. Tap the Start button to begin the scan. The sensor kicks off with a 15-second countdown and then displays the percentage of your blood oxygen level, which normally should be between 95% and 100%.
