SOS request on smart watch

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

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

Send SOS request from your smart watch

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. Navigate to and tap Send SOS messages, and then tap the switch on top of the screen. Review and then agree to the Terms and conditions. To add an emergency contact, tap Add. You may either tap Create contact or Select from contacts.

On your smart 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.
