The overall design comprises of a black leather watchband and a silver case that makes it appear like it’s a real watch.

But, the Fall Detection will not automatically work its unique feature whenever you’ve had a hard fall.

Thus, preventing any false alarms with the emergency respondents or your emergency contacts.


The Samsung Gear S3 Classic and Apple Watch Series 4 are only a few watches packed with technological advancements and innovative features. Tech-savvy watch enthusiasts can still choose other types of smartwatches but, will not be as advanced as the two promising smartwatches mentioned above.
