Xplora Technologies (“Xplora”), the leading kids' smartwatch brand, announces three new smartwatch models for release in 2022: the new X6, the next generation of Xplora's successful premium smartwatch X5 Play, and XGO3, a highly improved entry-level model. In addition, Xplora will introduce the X6 Pro: a cutting-edge, high-end smartwatch offering unique user experience and platform interaction. Both the X6 and X6 Pro are developed by Xplora and will be based on Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear™ platforms*, designed for high performance while providing peace of mind for parents.
“Two questions that almost every parent asks themselves are, how can I better communicate with my children, and how can I get them to be more active,” said Sten Kirkbak, CEO of Xplora. These new products are great first phones for children ages 4-10 and represent leading smartwatches with gamification and step-tracking to promote physical activity.
With the new X6 Pro, Xplora is leaping forward in the kids’ smartwatch category and family IoT space. The product is based on the cutting-edge Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 Platform and integrates with the broad portfolio of services and applications from the Xplora Goplay platform. For an ultra-crisp display experience, the X6 Pro will come with an AMOLED screen with a leading class resolution to maximize all the services that come with the watch.
“Xplora is committed to providing our customers with the best quality products and services to enable families to connect safely. Together we will deliver a new generation of children’s smartwatches with advanced service and content platforms, allowing children a safe onboarding to the digital world. Our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. reinforces that commitment,” said Kirkbak.
“Smartwatches for children have been one of the fastest-growing segments in the wearables space and hold significant potential for continued innovation. We are delighted to be collaborating with Xplora to bring new user experiences to premium smartwatch products that kids love and parents desire. Our popular Snapdragon Wear platforms are at the heart of Xplora’s X6 and X6 Pro smartwatches, making it possible to innovate on these interactive experiences, while connected with 4G LTE, staying safer with GPS, and supporting extended battery life,” said Pankaj Kedia, Global Business Head, Smart Wearables and Shareables Segments of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
