The main topic of the article is the availability of emergency features on different smartwatch brands.
The key points are:
1. Apple Watch offers fall detection, emergency SOS calls, and satellite messaging for emergencies.
2. Google Pixel Watch offers emergency SOS calls and fall detection, but only the LTE version allows direct contact with emergency services.
3. Garmin watches offer emergency contacts, emergency assistance calls, and satellite messaging through InReach devices.
The One UI Watch 5 update for Galaxy smartwatches introduces a Device Care feature that allows users to access battery, storage, and memory information directly from their wrists, although the Diagnostics menu remains exclusive to the Galaxy Wearable and Samsung Members mobile apps.
The Apple Watch Series 9 and second-generation Apple Watch Ultra will have upgraded sensors, components, and a focus on speed, efficiency, and accuracy, including a new version of the heart rate sensor and an all-new "U2" ultra wideband chip for improved location tracking.
Apple will unveil the Watch Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2 at its September 12 event, featuring a new optical heart rate sensor, improved sensors and components, and a focus on performance and speed.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2, designed for outdoor adventures, boasts a longer battery life and faster performance with the new S9 SiP processor, while also featuring a brighter display that is easily visible in any lighting conditions.
The Apple Watch Series 9 is a minor upgrade over the Series 8, with features like the S9 chip, Double Tap gesture, and Precision Finding for iPhone 15 models being the most significant changes, making it difficult to recommend upgrading for most Series 8 users.
On September 18, Apple will release watchOS 10 for Apple Watch Series 4 and later models, introducing new functions and redesigned apps, as well as mental health integrations and support for Apple's NameDrop feature.
The Apple Watch Series 9 disappoints by not offering more accurate location tracking through dual-frequency GPS, which many other fitness brands have implemented in their watches at a lower price point.
