The company claimed that the fall detection feature on the Apple Watch Series 4 will automatically detect a fall and call their emergency contact if they did not move in an hour.

Further, Apple also explains that the Watch might not be able to detect all the falls accurately. Redditor No1ARSoul, however, noted that you'll only find that out if you read the online manual for Fall Detection and how it's enabled by default for anyone whose age is 65 or older in their Apple accounts.

Apple has disabled fall detection for everyone younger than 65. Since then, the new Apple Watches have launched and Rich Woods has even shared his unboxing and first impressions of the 44mm model in stainless steel. "The more physically active you are, the more likely you are to trigger fall detection due to high impact activity that can appear to be a fall".
