    Now that holding the side button in for a few seconds triggers an emergency call, what is the procedure to turn off, power reserve or lock the watch?

    Holding the side button doesn't trigger the emergency call - it brings up screen to choose to power off, medical id or something like that and eventually it will have another option to call 911. Even if you accidentally press the button long enough to bring up the screen, it appears you will then have to swipe to call 911 - that will prevent accidental calls that some are saying will happen.
