Common features for all Xplora smartwatches

Xplora app - always stay connected:

All Xplora watches are set up and managed via the Xplora app. This way, parents always have an overview and control. They can enter and add contacts via the app, and only these contacts are visible on the Xplora watch. The child can only communicate with the contacts that have also been stored by the parents. The live location of the watch can be viewed by the parents at any time via the app. All other functions, such as setting an alarm, school mode, or safety zones, are also controlled via the parental app.

Goplay activity universe:

Xplora believes that kids should be encouraged to stay active and explore the world around them. Xplora’s reputation as the world’s leading smartwatch for kids has allowed us to be pioneers in this space. Using our revolutionary rewards system, kids receive 1 Xplora Coin for every 1,000 steps they take. Xplora Coins are valid in the unique Goplay platform that features fun games, activities, and exciting campaigns. Working with major film and TV companies such as Paramount, Warner Bros, Universal Pictures, and Netflix, we run regular campaigns on the Goplay platform, encouraging children to be more active. These often include competitions and amazing prizes for topping the leaderboard.

CONCLUSION

You really can’t go wrong with a smartwatch from Xplora! It is the most trusted brand in the market category. If you only need an easy and quick solution to stay connected to your kid while it is outside exploring the world, be more active and the possibility to join Goplay campaigns - the XGO3 has all you and your family need! 

If you want some more power, a better screen, battery, more storage and a better camera then our main Premium model X6Play is to recommend. Slightly more expensive, but a smartwatch that delivers on the next technical level, while at the same time can be used in a more personal and more playful way!
