Let’s not forget the little ones – smartwatch for kids
Xplora is a smartwatch for kids and onboards the future generation to the digital world by motivating the children to be more active when discovering the world. The mission is to give children a safe onboarding to the digital world, meanwhile balancing the screentime and physical activity. This is an ideal device for daily life but comes in handy also when you are heading for a family holiday, no matter the destination.
The story of Xplora started when the founder and CEP, Sten Kirkbak, lost his son for 30 minutes in a Norwegian shopping mall. Because of this incident, Sten got an idea for a product that would help parents to stay connected to their children and help to increase the physical activity of the kids. This led to exploring the possibility to have a smartwatch for kids.
All the Xplora smartwatches for kids are set up and administrated via the Xplora family app. This means that the parents always have full control over functions such as:
-List of contacts (only ones visible on the Xplora watch)
-Setting an alarm clock
