The folks at iFixit have put the Apple Watch Series 4 under the knife - in this case, the larger 44mm version.

Apple Watch is another big device that is likely to be unveiled at Apple's September 12 event where the company will be revealing the rumoured three iPhone models of 2018. Our picks help you keep your Watch charged, make it look like a modern-art showpiece, and pack it up perfectly.

Apple's support document page also explains other key aspects of the fall detection feature.

Amazingly, despite the number of components involved, Apple Watch Series 4 scores pretty well on iFixit's repairability scale: 6 out of 10. However, if no movement is detected for a minute, the Watch will start a 15 second countdown, further tapping and sounding a louder alarm. It will not instantly trigger itself after detecting a fall. There's one ad specifically for the Apple Watch Series 4, while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have to share one, just as you might expect. However, there is a possibility of false positives for active people, and many of them would want to keep the feature disabled.

What do you think about the Apple Watch Series 4 fall detection feature based on the above video?

That 291.8 mAh cell is supposed to last "up to 18 hours" on a single charge, which is exactly the same advertised autonomy as that of the Series 3.

According to Apple's support page for the Watch Series 4, the Fall Detection feature will be automatically be switched on for users who set up an account on the Watch or the Health app by listing their age as 65 years or older. It sports an improved 64-bit dual-core S4 processor, which is twice as fast as the S3 chip inside the Apple Watch Series 3.

Overseas customers looking to get the new Apple Watch, and keen on the new ECG feature shouldn't worry, though.
