Just about to take a shower this evening. So took my Watch 6 Classic off and dropped it down onto the carpet. 
I was surprised but that triggered the fall detection feature. It then was about to call the emergency services if I didn't acknowledge it within a few seconds.
Although I think this is an awesome feature. I think it should of turned on its sensors first. Then it would of detected that the watch wasn't even on my wrist at the time.

Agree with this, maybe they should make it so it scans your wrist or whenever that green light does😂

Hey there

Personally I think the watch got this right. You could easily have taken a fall and the watch fall off during your fall.

😂 Yeah that's what I thought. When I rotated the bezel clockwise to cancel it. It asked me to improve fall detection by giving an answer to one of the following statements:
1. You fell but are ok.
2. You didn't fall.

It's a pity it didn't give me the option to comment further, as to the real reason.

Yes true, but unlikely it would come off.
I do think it's an awesome feature though.

Thing is, when someone takes a fall, who knows what will happen? They may knock their wrist against a wall on the way down and the watch strap break? There are all sorts of occasions when the watch could leave the wrist.

Technology cannot resolve everything. So I think the watch got this one right.

Agree with you though, and awesome feature. 🫠
