Apple Watch Series 4 and later include a built-in fall detection feature. It's turned off by default if you're under 65, but anyone can turn it on from the Watch app on the iPhone.

The feature works by intelligently detecting when a sudden fall occurs, automatically calling emergency services if the person doesn't dismiss the alert within one minute of falling. If the person's emergency contact information is filled out, that contact will be notified with a text message and a map of the watch's location at the time of the fall.
