I have Galaxy Watch 5 and Samsung S9+ phone.

I have setup the SOS in Samsung Wearable app and the Watch 5 by triggering SOS via triple click home key. In Safety and Emergency setting. I enable both phone call and text message.

I enabled GPS location in both Galaxy Watch and my Samsung S9+. Also other settings such as Bluetooth and Wifi.

I tested the gps on my phone and watch, before triggering the SOS. Both gps are working when I tried them in google maps.

I also allowed all permission in my phone and watch for google maps, message app, and samsung wearable.

The text message is sent to the recipient, however the location is not shared. 

Please help, thank you.

Indonesia. I don't think this matters, because my GPS is working fine, I can use google maps and compass just fine.

Do your galaxy watch able to send location via text message when you triggered the SOS?
