Wilson Shows Off Smart Football

Posted February 3rd 2016


Would you be excited if you knew exactly how fast Peyton Manning of the Broncos was throwing a football in the Super Bowl? Or would you like to know just how perfect a spiral Cam Newton of the Panthers threw on his last play?

With a Wilson X Connected Football, you would be able to do just that. That’s why Wilson Sporting Goods is making the rounds with a beta version of its new smart football, which is part of the larger trend of connecting sports devices that allow you to more easily measure and improve your sports performance. 

The price hasn’t been disclosed yet. But Wilson charges $199 for its Wilson X Connected Basketball. You don’t have to charge your basketball, but the chip in the football will have a limited lifespan of a couple of years, or roughly the usual life of a football.
