Set up iPhone

On your iPhone, open the Health app. Tap Med­i­cal ID in the bot­tom bar, then Edit at the top right. You can now en­ter use­ful in­for­ma­tion such as your age, blood type, and weight, and se­lect emer­gency con­tacts.

Show when locked

At the top of the Med­i­cal ID edit­ing screen, make sure “Show when locked” is turned on. This means some­one who finds your phone can tap Emer­gency to see your de­tails. This ca­pa­bil­ity is also avail­able on Watch.

Set up Watch

Press and hold the side but­ton on your Watch (the long one). If you have set up your Med­i­cal ID, a slider la­belled as such will be shown. Some­one can slide it to ac­cess your med­i­cal info on your Watch’s screen.
