Xplora brings X5 smartwatch for kids to U.S. market

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 6, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        The Norwegian smartwatch company Xplora is out with the X5 Play …a smartwatch designed to keep kids connected and physically active.   It is essentially a phone built into a watch…with a steptracker and parental controls.    It is designed to work with all major carriers.   Xplora’s CEO Sten Kirkbak..

“The idea came about actually when I lost my child at a shopping mall.  My son was way too little, too young to have a smartphone.  But still I really had the urgency to be able to reach out, know exactly where he was.”

The Xplora X5 gives parents that capability and gives kids the ability to communicate with contacts approved by parents.    Find more at shop.myxplora.com.
