As announced during last month’s media event, the new Apple Watch Series 4 has the ability to detect when a person falls and call the user’s emergency contacts if the device doesn’t detect movement for a certain amount of time.

While this maybe great for some, others may want to disable it for one reason or another (I have mine disabled).

Here’s how:

  • Go into the Watch App on the iPhone.
  • Scroll down until you see the Emergency SOS option.  Select it.
  • Scroll down until you get to the Fall Detection area.
  • Toggle it ON or OFF depending on your situation.
  • That’s it.
