volume target for the year, proving the scalability of our business model and
generating positive earnings in the final quarter of the year is a team effort
we are proud of», says Sten Kirkbak, CEO of Xplora Technologies.

Xplora was founded with the mission of giving children a safe onboarding to
digital life and encouraging a better balance between screen time and physical
activity. A total of 350.000 smartwatches for kids have been sold since the

for Xplora in a number of ways. This includes delivering on our previously
