If you do nothing, your Watch will automatically call the emergency services - and notify your emergency contact. One of the most talked about however is its Fall Detection capability, which Apple claims will detect falls and allow the user to contact emergency services if needed. The Apple Watch Series 4 offers significantly better results if you fall on the floor.
Apple has disabled fall detection for everyone younger than 65. How you fall (soft versus hard) is important and, as mentioned, it may trigger false alarms.
Overall, the iFixit team gave the Apple Watch Series 4 a repairability score of 6 out of 10, which is the same as the iPhone XS series.
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. If you are immobile for a minute, it will launch a 15-second countdown before automatically calling 911 and messaging your emergency contacts. The default setting does make sense, as older people are more prone to serious falls where they will need emergency assistance.
If you want to get technical, means this year's bigger model manages 977 sq mm of surface area compared to 740 sq mm in the Apple Watch 3.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is a massive upgrade to the wearable device for both hardware and software, especially when it comes to health and fitness features.
