Mike is still recovering from the broken nose he suffered in the fall and credits the Apple Watch with saving his life. And while the Apple Watch isn’t as cheap as a Timex or Casio calculator watch, Yager says that the device is worth the expense, especially if you’re older. “It’s kind of expensive but I think it’s well worth it if you are over 65 or something you definitely need to do something like that. I’m 78 so I qualify,”
Mike’s wife Lori points out that without the Apple Watch making calls to her husband’s contacts, things might have turned out differently. “I think the fact that it called with him being unconscious is the key because I wasn’t due to come home for another couple hours and who knows what would have happened whenever I got home,” she pointed out.
