Wilson X Connected Basketball integrates a perfectly concealed sensor capable of determining whether a shot has entered the basket with 97 percent accuracy.
By synchronizing the ‘smartball’ to an iOS device via Bluetooth (compatibility with Android is expected in November), the user will have access, through a mobile application of the same name, to a complete evaluation of their training.
In addition to recording our skills, the Wilson X ball turns data monitoring into a game. Through the Free Range mode, we will be able to compete with a virtual player from the free throw line, triple or with shots in play, and through the Buzzer Beater mode, we will be able to face a decisive shooting situation at the end of the match.
However, its battery is not rechargeable, so we can only make around 100,000 launches, which is not a great disadvantage for amateur players.
Of course, the Wilson X smart ball is around 176 euros compared to the 25 euros that a standard ball costs.
