新しい Apple Watch が「貴重な」非常用ツールであなたの命を救う 3 つの方法

IF you’re ever in a tricky spot, the Apple Watch could be the perfect gadget to keep you safe.

The hi-tech smartwatch can now help you survive extremely dangerous situations.

This week saw three new watch models unveiled at the special アップルイベント (ユーロビジョンが大成功で帰ってきた iPhone 14 そして iPhone 14 プロ), 含んでいる AppleWatchシリーズ 8.

And here’s how they can help when you’re in dire straits…

Car crash detection

林檎 has built a truly brilliant feature into the new watch models called Crash Detection.

The tech giant has created a special algorithm that sucks up data from various sensors – accelerometers, barometers, GPS, microphones and more.

And it can use this data to determine if you’ve been in a severe crash.

So in the extremely unfortunate event that someone is in a severe car crash, the watch will prompt the user to tap to call emergency services – or cancel the pop-up.

If the wearer is unresponsive after a 10-second countdown, the emergency protocol begins.

This will share the device location with emergency services as well as the wearer’s emergency contacts.

The detection works even better if you’ve got an iPhone on you too, because it provides more data.

Waypoint and Backtrack

新しい Apple Watch Ultra gets some extra features – and so it should, given it starts at $799/£849.

It’s got a built-in compass app that enables special features called Waypoints and Backtrack.

You can log waypoints with your watch as you hike in the great outdoors.

例えば, you could mark your camp, a recent signpost or fork in the road, or a water source.

You can quickly mark these with the new orange Action Button on the side of the Apple Watch Ultra.

If you get lost at any point, you can use Backtrack (powered by GPS), a special orienteering tool that will help you retrace your steps.

Emergency Siren

Another brilliant feature on the Apple Watch Ultra is the emergency siren.

Apple has built a powerful speaker into the side of the Watch Ultra.

When you activate it, the Ultra will emit a loud 86-decibel siren.

It can be heard from up to 600ft away, according to Apple.

An 86-decibel siren is designed for emergencies, should users become lost or injured, and can help draw attention to a location,” Apple explained.

The unique sound signature incorporates two distinct alternating patterns, which can repeat for up to several hours.

Apple said that the first pattern is a distress warning.

And the second mimics the internationally recognised SOS pattern.

The specific frequency of the noise was chosen to carry over long distances and cut through any ambient din.

It could really help you out if you’re in a tricky spot.

The Apple Watch Ultra is available from Friday, 9月 23.

And the Apple Watch Series 8 is up for grabs on Friday, 9月 16.
