"The first thing I asked [the officer] was, 'How did you guys know to get here?' and he said, 'Your watch sent us a message,'" "And I said 'What?'"
Yager fell in his driveway that broke his nose and passed out. When he did not respond to the Apple Watch notification, it automatically called 911. Mike Yager states that even though the Apple Watch is expensive, it is totally worth it if you are over 65-years old. The man's wife told Fox News that the Summerfield Fire Department officer showed the Apple Watch's signal of emergency from her husband.
