A wearable computing device (e.g., a smart watch, smart glasses, smart bracelet, etc.), referred herein as a "wearable device" or "device," is described that uses a timer that allows for sufficient time to make an emergency call. The time expectations of an emergency system may be such that low computing power wearable devices have difficulty making an emergency services connection in an expected time period which may result in multiple failed connection attempts. The timer may ensure that the low computing power wearable device has enough time after leaving airplane mode to power up and find a suitable emergency services connection.
