Apple never seizes the opportunity to add a new health feature to the Apple Watch. The wearable is pretty capable in this regard and it is trusted by many as their go-to health and fitness equipment. It not only tracks your fitness routine but also packs nifty tools that come in handy when you most need them. According to the latest, the Apple Watch saved Roger's life who fell through the ice in Somersworth, New Hampshire.

“First thing I did was try to walrus up on the ice knowing that I needed to get out of the water as quickly as possible and the ice just kept breaking underneath me,” Rogers said. No one was around and he couldn’t reach his phone. He was in the water for several minutes as hypothermia started setting in. “I remember telling myself, ‘OK, don’t panic. Don’t panic. Figure out what your options are here,’” Rogers said.
All thanks to the Apple Watch, the firefighters came at the right time and Roger survived falling into the ice-cold water. Things could have gotten a lot worse if the Apple Watch was not there for assistance. The Apple Watch also houses a nifty feature called Emergency SOS. The feature automatically calls the local emergency number if it detects a sudden fall.
You can use Apple Watch Series to make an emergency call. Your Apple Watch alerts your emergency contacts that you made a call and sends them your current location Press and keep holding the side button until your Apple Watch beeps and starts a countdown. When the countdown ends, your Apple Watch calls emergency services. The Apple Watch beeps even if it’s in silent mode, so if you’re in an emergency situation where you don’t want to make noise, use the Emergency SOS slider to call emergency services without a countdown.
