The most significant benefit of technology to aging is the freedom of choice, empowering older adults to maintain autonomy, choose the lifestyle they want, and promote dignity. Technology such as the Apple Watch helps you manage your activities of daily living. Here’s how:
The Activity app on your Apple Watch keeps track of your movement throughout the day and encourages you to meet your fitness goals. The app tracks how often you stand, how much you move, and how many minutes of exercise you do. The goal is to sit less, move more, and get some exercise every day.
If an Apple Watch SE or Series 4 or later detects a hard fall while wearing it, the watch will tap you on the wrist, sound an alarm, and display an alert. If the watch detects that you haven’t been moving for around a minute, it will make a call to emergency services automatically.
This voice assistant offers a helping hand for navigating your phone. Siri can be beneficial if you struggle with vision, have pain or trouble typing, or are looking to simplify your everyday tasks. Use Siri to place calls, send text messages, and set calendar reminders and alarms.
