Use the screwdriver that was included in your Xplora watch box to open the SIM-card slot. Once you have removed the lid, withdraw the current SIM-card. Place your new SIM-card with the chip facing up and push it all the way in until it clicks firmly into place.


  1. Make sure your watch is fully charged. If the watch previously ran out of power, it might take up to 15 minutes of charging before the watch can be switched on.
  2. Download and install the Xplora app on your smartphone:
  3. Create a user account - Make sure to use your own phone number (not the watch's phone number) when creating a guardian account. 
  4. After creating a user account, the app will prompt you to add a watch. Press "Add device", then "Scan code". Give the app permission to access your camera.
  5. On the watch, select "QR code" in the Settings menu. 
  6. Scan the QR code shown on the watch and type in your watch's phone number. Make sure that you enter the number of the SIM-card that is inside the watch.
