School Mode--Know your child is safe at school with Xplora

School is your children’s second home and it is important for you to have a peace of mind knowing your child is safe when there. Xplora will help you stay connected with your children while they are at school without them being distracted by the device! Here you will find out how you can make the best possible use of the ‘School Mode’ function on Xplora's smart watches! 

Over 700,000 children across the country use an Xplora smartwatch. In the vast majority of classrooms today, children are not allowed to use their cell phones or personal tablets, as this can naturally disrupt the teaching and distract the students. Xplora smartwatches are the perfect solution for this problem.

 

School Mode 

Using the Xplora Parent app, parents can set up school mode. School mode puts your child’s Xplora smartwatch in sleep mode meaning the children cannot access the features. 

All features such as calling, sending messages, taking pictures are disable for the time you allotted through the parent app. The smart clock will appear on the face of the watch and nothing more! The pedometer will continue to count your child’s steps even if school mode is activated, so your child can continue to earn Xplora coins and stay motivated!

In case of emergencies the SOS button will be available. Your child is never more than one click away! The SOS button will send a message to your phone to let you know they need you.
