Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire police said a spike in accidental 911 calls could be tired to a new piece of technology.
In a video posted to Facebook, the department shows how the Apple Watch can easily dial 911. Police said it could be the reason for a sudden rise in accidental emergency calls.
So far this year, the dispatch center has received 121 fake calls.
They say if you do call 911 on accident you should stay on the line and let the dispatcher know you made a mistake. They also recommend checking your smartwatch settings so you know how they work.
Last year, police said officers were sent out to investigate more than 1,000 accidental calls taking time away from other important work.
