UNBOXED: Reviewing the Wilson X Connected Football
It’s been quite some time since I got together with the other kids in the neighborhood and hastily organized a game of two-hand-rough-touch, but if I still were one of the cool kids I certainly would want to have my hands on the Wilson X Connected Football.
This $149.99 football looks pretty basic on the outside, but has a sensor embedded inside the product that makes it one of the most advanced footballs on the market. When connected to the Wilson X app, the football can register speed thrown, rotations per minute, distance covered, and spiral efficiency. Per session, it also tracks how many times the ball has been thrown; and it keeps a running total (and average) of all statistics.
Though the price tag might seem a little high, understanding just how in depth the user experience with the Wilson X Connected Football is makes it way more than worth it—especially if you’re someone who cares about how you throw a football like, say, a young and developing quarterback.
