Xplora, the popular Norwegian smartwatch company, has announced that the XGO2 Android smartwatch for kids is now available in the UK. The XGO2 is an affordable yet feature-rich smartwatch with mobile phone and GPS tracking capabilities, providing premium quality components to please both children and parents. Completely GDPR compliant, it is an ideal first phone for children aged 5-12. The Xplora XGO2 is available in black, blue, green or pink from Amazon with Prime delivery and the Xplora website for £99.99.
The XGO2 allows kids to use a range of functions whilst remaining safe and secure. Running on Android 4.4 with a 1.4” capacitive touch color LCD screen and a resolution of 240 x 240, it is easy to use and is incredibly responsive with its 1.2 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 frequency, 512MB RAM, and Spreadtrum SC9820E chipset. When wearing and using the device, children have the ability to make and receive voice calls from pre-saved numbers only, so they can communicate with friends or family without the risk of receiving any unsolicited calls.
Including a 700mAh battery providing 72 hours of standby battery and working with Wi-Fi as well as 4G, 3G, and 2G connectivity, the watch ensures reliable connectivity and is also IP67 water-resistant so can survive a rainy day or messy play session outdoors!
One of the most exciting features on the XGO2 watch is the step counter which encourages children to stay active, investigate and explore, and to also be rewarded for this! With in-built G Sensors, the XGO2 accurately tracks kid’s steps which earn them Xplora Coins to be used in the groundbreaking and award-winning Xplora Goplay Platform. This aims to motivate children to spend more time taking part in physical activities offline in exchange for virtual rewards that can later be redeemed online via a gaming platform.
Children earn one coin for every 1000 steps they make and these coins can then be used to claim products, merchandise from these shows and movies, and even online game time such as the Tom & Jerry Pinball game. If they achieve a top 3 placement on the leader board, kids can also receive exclusive prize bundles which could include Bluetooth speakers, Amazon Fire kids tablets, instant cameras, and RYZE Tello drones!
Including many features that are designed to keep kids safe whilst being online, the emergency SOS button can be pressed by the child if needed and will notify their emergency contacts of their location. The XGO2 also uses multiple services to show the device’s location (GPS + Wi-Fi + LBS) to ensure it is accurate. There is also the option to set up Safety Zones around key locations such as home and school so alerts can be sent if children exit these areas.
