By default, the Emergency Call function automatically starts a call to emergency services if you press the side button five times in a row.
If you turn off AutoCall, then after five clicks on the side button, you will still need to swipe the screen to start a call.
If you sleep in your watch, it’s better to disable the option Auto call at Settings → Emergency call - SOS.
