How to enable case detection and configure emergency contacts on Apple Watch

Apple Watch may be a good smart watch, but it can also save your life . Apple has built fallout detection in the notebook, which can dial 911 and alert your emergency contacts if you are involved in an accident. Here's how to set everything up.

Enable Fall Detection

When you first installed your Apple Watch, it should have asked if you want to enable case detection and rescue services. If you did not enable the feature (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 your home screen and use Apple's Spotlight Search to find "Watch."

 Apple iPhone Select Watch app

Scroll down to the "My Watch" tab and select "Emergency SOS."

Click the switch next to "Fall Detection." If you do this, the 911 and your emergency contacts will be potentially damaged and have not responded to an alarm coming from Apple Watch.

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

Set emergency contacts

In order for your loved ones to be warned of a potential accident, you must set up emergency contacts. You can do so from the "Health" app on your iPhone.

If you can't find the app on your phone, you can pull back on the iPhone's home screen and use Spotlight Search to find "Health."

Then click on your avatar in the top right corner of the app.

Scroll down and select the "Medical ID" option.

The Medical ID menu displays all the emergency information you have entered about yourself. To add a new emergency contact, click the "Edit" button in the upper right corner.

 Apple iPhone Health App Select Edit

Scroll down to the "Emergency Contacts" section and select "+ Add Emergency Contact." You can also select the red icons next to the other emergency contacts to remove them.

 Apple iPhone Health App Select Add Emergency Contact

Find a contact in the phonebook and select which phone number you want to enter for the emergency contact. Then choose the contact's relationship with you. Doing so will help the first responders identify close relatives.

After adding the emergency contact, tap "Done."

 Apple iPhone Health App Select Done

Your emergency contact (s) will now be saved. If you fall and the 911 will ring, your emergency contacts will also be contacted along a GPS location so you can be located.
