Incident detection is a supplemental feature available only for certain outdoor activities. Incident detection should not be relied on as a primary method to obtain emergency assistance.
Before you can enable incident detection on your watch, you must set up emergency contacts in the Garmin Connect™ app (Adding Emergency Contacts). Your paired phone must be equipped with a data plan and be in an area of network coverage where data is available. Your emergency contacts must be able to receive emails or text messages (standard text messaging rates may apply).
