Major win for Xplora at CES

Xplora is making waves at CES, one of the most influential tech events in the world, as the company wins a prestigious award and the meeting calendar is packed! 

CES is one of the the biggest tech events in the world — the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and global innovators, with more than 100 000 visitors and 3200 exhibitors from 173 countries. Taking place right now in Las Vegas, USA, this is the place for everyone that loves technology and innovation. 

Yesterday was a big day for Xplora, when founder and CEO Sten Kirkbak received an CES award on behalf of the company. Today there are a lot of exciting meetings with possible partners and we will be taking in on all the new, cool trends in the tech world.

Xplora was named a CES® 2023 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree for its new X6Play smartwatch. The X6Play is the latest high-end product in Xplora's lineup of smartwatches created to serve as the first cell phone for children between the ages of 4-11. Unlike other smartwatches designed for young children, Xplora’s technology encourages a balance between screen time and physical activity while helping families stay connected.

2100 submissions

Xplora was one of 21 honorees in the wearables category and the only wearable designed exclusively for children. The X6Play was also one of 17 products named a Best of Innovation Award winner out of hundreds of honorees. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program received a record high of more than 2,100 submissions. 

- The recognition of our X6Play as a CES Best of Innovation Award winner is a testament to our leadership in the design and development of kids’ wearables. Our smartwatches provide children with a safe onboarding to the digital world. Features like our proprietary, award-winning Goplay platform and our partnerships with organizations like the United Nations also teach kids how to think beyond themselves and provide them with a way to give back to those in need, says Sten Kirkbak, CEO of Xplora.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 28 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. 

An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.

“This Consumer Electronics Show innovation for kids boasts a responsive, high-resolution 1.5-inch screen, a 5MP camera for capturing photos and videos, as well as an enhanced battery life so that kids can go days without needing to charge the wearable. Personalization is also a big selling feature of the smartwatch since kids can change out the wristbands and bezels of the device to suit their personal style.”
