Do you ever wish you can throw a football like a pro? Now you can, thanks to the new Wilson X Connected Football.
The Wilson X Connected Football is the world’s first ever smart football and it works just like magic.
The football has a tiny chip embedded with a built-in gyroscope. This interprets the movement of the ball so that you can measure distance, spin rate, catches, drops, speed and spiral efficiency; essentially, everything that you need to know. The information gathered is then sent via Bluetooth to an associated app.
One of the greatest supporters of this product is Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks. In the video above, you’ll see his famous #3 involvement in a just-released campaign for the Wilson X Connected Football.
When you start the associated smartphone app, available for only iOS currently, you’re prompted to turn on the football, which you do by holding it vertically for two seconds, flipping it, and holding for a couple of more seconds.
The release of the Wilson X comes just in time for football season. While it was released in 2015, it has just been made available for shipping around the world.
Our products are not just used to get in shape, they’re something that brings people together.
– Kevin Murphy, General Manager of Wilson Team Sports
