How to Enable Fall Detection and Set Up Emergency Contacts on Apple Watch

Apple Watch Emergency Settings

The Apple Watch might be a great smartwatch, but it can also save your life. Apple has built fall detection into the wearable, which can call 911 and alert your emergency contacts in case you’re involved in an accident. Here’s how to set everything up.

Enable Fall Detection

When you first set up your Apple Watch, it should have asked if you’d like to enable fall detection and emergency services. If you didn’t turn the feature on (or want to make sure you did), start by opening the “Watch” app on your iPhone.

If you can’t find the app on your iPhone, swipe down on your homescreen and use Apple’s Spotlight search to find “Watch.”

Apple iPhone Select Watch App

Scroll down in the “My Watch” tab and select “Emergency SOS.”

Tap on the toggle next to “Fall Detection.” Doing so will alert 911 and your emergency contacts that you’ve potentially been injured and didn’t respond to an alarm coming from the Apple Watch.

Alternatively, you can enable fall detection from your Apple Watch. You can do this by clicking on the Digital Crown > Settings app (gear icon) > SOS > Fall detection. Toggle the option on if it wasn’t already.
