It is my series 3 Apple watch. I am trying to engage the SOS…

Customer Question
It is my series...

It is my series 3 Apple watch. I am trying to engage the SOS feature, but the watch continues to notify my emergency contacts WAY too long. Are you an Apple guy?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Apple Watch?

It is series 3 so I think OS 11.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Apple Watch? What have you tried so far?

I set up the emergency system but my contacts tell me it just keeps going and going. I had to turn off the watch to make it stop. Just today

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Just that I want the emergency contacts notified in case of an emergency...once!

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
