How to use it

Press and hold the side but­ton on your Watch. A screen with an Emer­gency SOS slider will ap­pear — slide it to call lo­cal emer­gency ser­vices. On your iPhone, press the Sleep/Wake but­ton five times for Emer­gency SOS.

Hold to Auto Call

In the Watch app, go to Gen­eral > Emer­gency SOS. Make sure Hold to Auto Call is turned on; this means if you hold down the side but­ton on your Watch, it will au­to­mat­i­cally start the emer­gency call — no slid­ing needed.

No­tify con­tacts

When us­ing Emer­gency SOS, once the call to the emer­gency ser­vices is done, your Watch will send all of your emer­gency con­tacts a text mes­sage say­ing you’re in trou­ble, with your lo­ca­tion at­tached.
