Just FYI, triple pressing the home button doesn't do anything... There is no send help message option with the Gear 2.

I have the Gear 2, and there is. You just need to enable it in your Gear Manager.

Start Gear Manager, Settings > Send help message > Turn it on (at the top right) > Choose if you want it to send a photo too, or just the message.

Next, go back. Click "Manage Primary contacts", add at least one contact.

Now when you triple press the Home key, it will send a distress message (photo optional) with a link that contains your Long/Lat. It will send an updated message regularly until you cancel the distress message on your cellphone.

Hmm, There is no send help message option in my Gear Manager. There is also no manage contacts (that was there when I had the Gear 1 for like 2 days until I returned it). What version of gear manager are you using? I'm on 2.0.14041404

Yes you can. Go to Gear Manager, then to notifications, make sure your notifications are on by looking in the upper right hand corner. Then scroll down the app list and check WhatsApp and any other apps you want notifications up relay to your gear.

suggestion to add to the FAQ
Great FAQ - thank you.
Would you consider adding music to the faq. There are two ways to add music:

- Via the gear manager / my apps / music player / send tracks to gear, you can transfer music to the gear.
- Also you can plug the watch in to a computer using the cradle. The watch should appear as a device and you can transfer music to a music folder.

Thanks
