Apple Watch 5

We are huge Apple fans here at The Spin, not least due to their work in making their products with accessibility in mind.

We can see this continue in the Apple Watch 5.

For wheelchair users the rings are Roll, Exercise and Move. Instead of a Stand goal, the Roll goal encourages you to roll or stretch every hour. For your Exercise and Move goals, Activity measures pushes, so active calories are calculated more accurately. Sensors are configured to address different surface types, inclines and transition moments, such as moving from a wheelchair to a seat at your desk, or from your chair to your car.

As well as this the Apple Watch has a fall detection feature that will allow it to send for help if it detects a fall by the wearer.
