Every Monday, Paula Light, with her The Monday Peeve prompt, gives us an opportunity to vent or rant about something that pisses us off.
My peeve is about my over-sensitive Apple Watch. Our year and a half year old dog, mostly pit bull, is a very playful, rambunctious dog, and when I roughhouse with her, I keep getting this message on my Apple Watch:
I touch “I’m OK,” and then I get this:
I touch “I did not fall,” and that’s the end of it.
So what’s my peeve? Well, I love my Apple Watch, but I wish I could either turn off this feature or at least tone down its sensitivity a notch or two.
Oh wait. I just googled “how to turn off Apple Watch SOS Emergency notification and saw these instructions:
You can change your Emergency SOS services as follows:
- Open the Watch app on your iPhone, then tap the My Watch tab
- Tap Emergency SOS
- Turn off fall detection
Okay. Never mind. Please ignore this post.
