X5 Play, the safe smartwatch for children from Xplora

In the Xplora X5 Play package we find the clock, the charging cable, the instructions and a plastic paddle for inserting the nano sim. Operation to be done with an adult and essential for the operation of the smartwatch.


The product is well made, it is light, it has a 1.4 inch touch screen with 4 GB memory. The battery lasts up to 3 days. X5 Play in addition to the functions of calls and messages allows you to set an alarm, activate the stopwatch, count steps and listen to music. You can also take photos and videos thanks to the 2 MP camera. In chat you can also receive photos but the screen resolution will make them appear a bit disproportionate.

Xplora app

The management of the smartwatch is entrusted to the dedicated application that must be downloaded to the mobile phone. Then you need to register the product and create an account. From the app you can manage all the functions, including the contacts list to be able to call and the music to listen to. You can monitor the child’s movements and create, for example, a border area within which he can move. In the moment in which it crosses a message it will warn the parent. In the app there is also a “school mode” function to deactivate the clock during class lessons, but if we want to avoid distractions, it is better to leave it at home.

Sporty and supportive smartwatch

This watch is a first approach to the world of smartphones that sooner or later, perhaps as late as possible, will be part of our children’s lives. A useful tool to educate in the technological world. It is also convenient in the sports field because you can monitor the steps and time the training phases. At the end of the day, based on the steps taken, you can earn Xcoins, virtual coins that you can use to contribute to environmental and charity campaigns, for example. X5 Play is available in different colors and the selling price is around 160 euros.
