Gear S3: How to send SOS messages

Last Update date : 2017.10.05

If you are in an emergency situation, it is quick and easy to send SOS messages* with the Gear S3.

Simply press the Home key three times from any screen to send a clear and concise SOS message to your contacts.


It also supports SOS calls*, which are ideal for situations where silence is required as they mute all sounds

from the Gear S3** while allowing the receiver to hear the ambient sound around you.

This makes it much easier for them to determine your situation and exact location.




A leading safety partner will provide you with support – ADT (USA), S1 (KOR).




Please Note the following:


* Before using SOS messages and calls, you must preset your emergency contacts’ details in Gear Manager


** During an SOS call, the volume level of the Gear S3 is automatically set.
