What turned our heads is the Apple Watch SE’s automatic fall detection. This feature is common in medical alert systems but unique among smartwatches like this one. When the Apple Watch SE detects a sudden change in speed and altitude, it triggers an alert asking if you need assistance. If you’re unresponsive, it will call for help within 60 seconds.
Just like your phone, the Apple Watch’s screen is customisable. You can download health apps based on your needs. Apps focus on heart health tracking, sleep tracking, activity tracking, and more.
Older adults can also use the watch to keep in touch with loved ones through calls and text on their Apple Watch SE. This may come with a learning curve for anyone new to smartwatches, but if you can operate an iPhone, you can operate this smartwatch.
The device itself is sleek with a large, clear screen that makes it easy to read. There are also tons of wristbands available users can change out based on their style or comfort level.
On the downside, the battery life leaves a lot to be desired—in fact, you'll need to pop it on the charger overnight at the end of every day, which may be a dealbreaker for some.
