Apple Watches SOS mode is activated unintentionally. users of the Apple Watch, often seen as a ‘life-saving watch’, complain that emergency numbers are being called unnoticed during daily activities. However, it turned out that this was a case of the watch’s design, not the software, contrary to popular belief.

Although Apple’s smart watches provide many functional features to users during the day, they have also won the appreciation of many users with their advanced health experience.
On the other hand, there is a point that the Apple Watch from other health smart watches, which seem to be making it difficult for users and security teams lately. This feature includes the Apple Watch can call emergency numbers yourself based on your situation. There have been complaints recently about the function of law enforcement and medical teams.
“People unconsciously put Apple Watch in emergency mode while they are sleeping or on the road”
According to the information, under normal circumstances, it is enough to press and hold the side button for a while to enter the emergency mode on the Apple Watch. However, according to the information provided by the police, people activate this feature unconsciously and the agents waste their time and resources.
Jim Sartre, who works in the state of Kansas in the United States, states that 911 calls were made undetected, as we have just mentioned, and that the officer then Apple Watch user returned, and when this happened, the user said the call was made by mistake. As we mentioned, this can lead to safety and health officials wasting time in critical situations, thus delaying the realization of preventable loss of life.
