Emer­gency SOS shares your lo­ca­tion, but that’s only af­ter the au­thor­i­ties have been called. What if you’re walk­ing home late, or are wor­ried a sit­u­a­tion is go­ing side­ways, and want to make sure peo­ple know where you are? You can share your lo­ca­tion in Mes­sages on your Watch — in a con­ver­sa­tion, press firmly on the screen, then tap Share Lo­ca­tion. A more se­ri­ous op­tion is Wearsafe (re­quires in-app pur­chases, bit.ly/wearsafe) — you can press a but­ton to in­stantly share your lo­ca­tion and audio of what’s go­ing on with a network of trusted con­tacts.
