Set Up and Use SOS Mode on Your Watch

Hopefully, you'll never find yourself in a real crisis, but if you do, SOS mode on your watch helps make sure someone comes to the rescue. Learn how to set up SOS mode to let your emergency contacts know where you are and how to track you down.

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.

Send SOS Request

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

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.
