    Does anyone know ahead of time how the GPS only, will work for the fall detection? Lets say, you are away from your phone & you fall. How would that feature work? Trying to weigh my options, GPS vs GPS + Cellular

    If you were out of range of your paired iPhone when you had the fall there would be no 911 call as the GPS only version couldn’t make a phone call on its own. If you’re connected to a known WiFi network, such as at home or a place you frequently visit and you’ve set up WiFi calling ahead of time, your watch can contact emergency services on its own. Unfortunately if you’re out of range if your iPhone and the watch has no WiFi connection, it can’t connect to emergency services.
