I am trying to understand how the galaxy watch 4 works.
I want to use the fall detection feature of the watch 4 for my mom. Currently she has a voice only flip phone on a pay as you go plan and she has no data. She has internet and WIFI at her home plus a landline.
If I buy the galaxy watch 4 will it report to me, or others, if she falls and cannot not get up? Will it work at home over the WIFI? Will it work on the go by tying into the pay as you go flip phone? Or does it work on its own without me requiring a separate voice and data plan.
Please help me understand what is required to make this device work.

Thanks for that. I had no idea there were different versions. Every single sales person I spoke with failed to mention that. It sounds like the blue tooth version will work.
Thank you for reaching. I can certainly understand the importance of knowing how the device works and the features that are available. One thing to remember, that no matter which Galaxy watch 4 she gets, her flip phone would be required to be able to download the Galaxy wearables app in order for the fall detection feature to work.
