Mobile and smart technology, whether smartphones or any type of connected device, is something that the youngest members of the family have been related to since its inception, however, there are still a number of devices such as the w that offer interesting functionalities in this aspect to which perhaps we could give a little more prominence.
Let's take a look at how this X5 Play can contribute to bring freedom and security to the little ones in the house, and how he can take advantage of its functionalities in his day to day life.
As on many other occasions, we have decided to accompany the in-depth analysis of a video on our YouTube channel in which we are going to teach you unboxing so that you can check the contents of the box and how closely the device is, as well as a small tutorial in which we will show you how you can configure your Xplora X5 Play to have it ready when you give it to the little ones at home. Take the opportunity to subscribe to our channel and leave us any questions in the comment box.
Materials and design
As a product designed for boys and girls that it is, we find rubbery plastic as the main feature. This is going to be good for two reasons, the first is that it will prevent the little ones from hurting themselves with it, in the same way that it will make it a particularly resistant product. In essence, the device is offered in a black color, although we can choose the trim that accompanies it between blue, pink and black, as well as other small details on the silicone strap that it includes and that is easy to replace.
- Size: 48,5 x 45 x 15 mm
- Weight: 54 grams
- Colors: Black, pink and blue
It is relatively light for an infant with a total weight of only 54 grams, although the size of the box and its overall dimensions may seem considerably large. We also have IP68 certification that will guarantee that they can submerge it, splash it and much more without fear of breaking it. Obviously, Xplora and its warranty do not take care of water damage, although this should not be a problem.
Technical characteristics and autonomy
Inside this curious clock the processor hides Qualcomm 8909W dedicated to wearables, running a custom version of Android and by the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Government of Spain with the possibility of accessing 4G and 3G networks thanks to the SIM card slot that is included in the device. Inside it houses 4GB of storage capacity, Although we do not have specific data about RAM, we imagine for the performance of its functions it will house around 1GB. In this regard we have had no complaints, as you have seen in the video.
- Screen size: 1,4 inches
- Decision display: 240 x 240 pixels
- Camera 2MP integrated
For the battery we have 800 mAh in total that will provide a day of standard use if we activate the basic functionalities. However, with the device in stand-by mode it will be able to give us three days of use according to our tests.
Communication and localization
The watch has an integrated GPS system supported by mobile data connectivity, for this and using the application for Android and iOS. The location of the child will be shown in real time, and we even have the possibility to establish «Safe Areas», some personalized areas that will issue notices to the phone when the user enters or leaves them.
This section is directly connected to that of communication, as we have said, this watch is totally independent and if we assign it a sim card Anyone with data and call synchronization will allow us to contact the little one easily and safely. We can add a maximum of 50 authorized contacts with whom you can communicate through calls through your touch screen. Obviously we can also read text messages and personalized emojis on the X5 Play.
The application has seemed especially successful, the performance is quite fluid and it is correctly integrated in the different operating systems, although we have found a perhaps somewhat higher performance in iOS. It is undoubtedly one of the main reasons to get hold of the device, since it is its nerve center even though the watch is independent.
Goplay: Make it move
Xplora includes in its latest generation watches an activities platform called Goplay. This system of records and activities has been awarded in Europe, ranking it preferentially thanks to its collaborations with Sony PlayStation. The little ones will be able to carry out their challenges and thus obtain the rewards.
This will help them, provided that we assist them in the process and are receptive to the initiative, to combat sedentary behavior.
Especially interesting is the fact that the watch includes a 2MP camera, This will allow the child to take interesting photographs and you, through the remote control, also take some shots.
Parental control has a dominant position throughout the software included with the device and this is very important. This watch serves the little ones as a first approach to wearables, in the same way that they allow us to strictly monitor their activities, both in terms of safety and when it comes to combating the sedentary lifestyle of children, an important scourge in the times that run. It is clear that from the dates, this X5 Play is positioned as an especially interesting product for communions, taking into account the age range of the product and the features offered.
We talk now about what is important, the Xplora X5 Play can be purchased at own brand website from 169,99 euros, a fairly moderate price given the features offered.
