Apple over the weekend shared a new ad titled “911” that emphasizes the Apple Watch’s life-saving potential during emergencies.
The suspenseful ad revolves around three individuals named Amanda, Jason, and Jim who were each able to get help by dialing 911 using the Apple Watch, with the ad highlighting excerpts from their frantic phone calls with dispatchers. Amanda, for example, said that her car had flipped over and was starting to fill up with water.
Fortunately, the ad concludes that all three individuals were rescued in minutes. “These are just three of many incredible stories where people were able to get help using Apple Watch,” wrote Apple in the video’s description.The ad suggests that buying an Apple Watch could help save your life in emergencies where you don’t have access to your iPhone by allowing you to dial 911 from your wrist.
