It’s best to always be prepared. If you ever need emergency assistance, here's how to set up SOS mode.

Send SOS Request

On your phone, open the Galaxy Wearable app, and then touch the SETTINGS tab. Touch Send SOS messages, and then touch the slider on top of the screen to turn on Send SOS requests. Review the Terms and conditions and the Glympse legal information. If you agree, select both, and then touch AGREE. You will be prompted to assign at least one emergency contact. You may either touch Create contact or Select from contacts.

On your watch, press the Home key quickly 3 times to send SOS requests in an emergency. Your emergency contacts will receive SOS messages containing information about your current location and how to track you for up to 1 hour.
