Apple Watch helps save the life of an unconscious man

Bob Burdett – a 62-year-old man living in Washington has just experienced a memorable period in his life: facing death and if not for the Apple Watch, perhaps …

Bob shared that, at about noon on September 15, when cycling to the road called Doomsday Hill (a hill), he lost his balance and fell off his bike. The fall caused his head to hit the concrete road, but fortunately he wore a helmet. However, he was still thrown into the street and the fall made him unconscious in a dislocated shoulder and broken some ribs and a patchy bleeding wound near his eyes.

The fall also activated the Apple Watch’s fall detection feature, and immediately an emergency call to 911 was made after 60 seconds Bob did not move. At the same time, an urgent message was sent to his son’s phone number.

Just a few minutes after the call was made, an ambulance arrived at the scene and took Bob to emergency. And his son immediately went to the hospital to take care of his father after receiving the message.

It’s all over, but what the Apple Watch did in the accident of Bob Burdett shows the technological prowess that smart wearables from Apple bring.

Drifting into the sea, the woman was saved by her Apple Watch

Thanks to the mobile connection feature on the Apple Watch, the woman quickly called 911 for rescuers.

There have been many records about how the Apple Watch smartwatch saved lives in emergency situations. And this week, a woman from Massachusetts, USA, shared another story about how the Apple Watch saved her life by accidentally sailing off the coast.

According to the Boston Globe, the woman was sailing on Nahant beach when the wind began to float and pushed her away from the shore. Unable to withstand the wind, she decided to call 911 with her Apple Watch. The call quickly connected to the rescue agency Lynn, Massachusetts.

In a recording she received from the Boston Globe, the woman presented a state of emergency when she said she was drifting too far from shore and didn’t know how. Rescue teams reassured the woman and immediately arrived at the scene.

At that time, the boating girl was hundreds of meters from the shore and the force deployed the boat to rescue. Finally, the woman returned safely to the shore in a stable condition.

Technology in sports practice (Part 3)

Short exercises

Science has proven that no exercise is too short, every minute of exercise can be effective. Repeating a 10-minute workout three times has the same benefits as exercising for 30 minutes in a row. High intensity exercise, also known as HIIT, is also in this trend.

High intensity exercise produces the same and sometimes better results than long periods of activity as your heart rate increases sharply and helps burn more calories. The New Year trend will focus heavily on combining HIIT with exercises like yoga, stretching, zumba and pilates.

Boxing

Martial arts such as boxing are expected to attract a large number of participants in the new year. Boxing is a great way to train at high intensity, while giving you the feeling of excitement as a warrior. People who participate in this sport often feel more fulfilled when they train through combat movements.

Technology applications

Sports equipment will become smarter in 2019. Smart treadmill and other fitness devices are also equipped with streaming.

These smart apps let you cycle and track progress on your tablet. The screen will display images of hills or other obstacles to simulate training intensity. In addition, you can connect and compete with other users.

The smart tracking device

Personal tracking devices like Apple Watch or Fitbit will continue to be widely used in 2019.

Accuracy plays a key role. Users want to track calories burned, heart rate, sleep duration, intensity and duration of exercise.

Relax

We often just focus on physical exercise but forget about relaxation so that the body can recover after vigorous exercise.

Taking time to massage and relax muscles plays a major role in muscle development as well as overall health.

This year’s relaxation trends focus on meditation, self-care habits and breathing techniques.

Above are some technologies that have been applied in sports and reality.
