COROS helmets offer free SOS Emergency Alert feature. Once the helmet detects an impact, it will automatically send a mapping of your location to a list of emergency contacts via texts. It will also auto dial your emergency contacts via your phone should you become too injured to call for help. At the same time, the LED tail light will begin flashing S.O.S in Morse code for anyone nearby to identify.
In order to ensure that the SOS feature on your helmet functions, please check the following requirements:
- Stable cellular service on your phone at the time of incident.
- COROS helmet is connected to your phone via Bluetooth.
- SOS emergency contact is set up correctly on the app.
- COROS app is open and in cycling mode.
- Tap "Start Cycling" to enter the cycling mode to track your ride data.
- Impact of the incident is strong enough to trigger the onboard sensor to activate the SOS alert.
If any of the above requirements isn't met, the SOS feature may not function properly.
Testing this feature on your helmet is prohibited as the drop test may damage the internal structure/materials of the helmet and compromise the safety rating.
