The Wilson X Connected Football lets you throw with the pros

Wilson Connected Football

While not everyone is a fan of sport ball, there are those who rather enjoy watching games and learning the stats of teams and players. Many of those people play at home either for fun or with the intent to make it onto a team whether it be local or for the big leagues. When it comes to football, one of the most important aspects to master aside from endurance and running is the throw.

While you might be able to recognize a good throw, it’s not easy to track the quality. Wilson knows this all too well and created the Wilson X Connected Football which will tell you everything you need to know about your throw. After tossing around the ole pigskin, you can go onto the related app and see the┬ávelocity, spin, distance, and spiral efficiency of your projection.

Not only will you be able to compare your actions to players from well-known teams, but you’ll also get to track your own stats and make an avatar. The ball is official size and weight, so you know exactly how you’d stack up against the real deal. This is no cheap toy at $199.99, but at least it comes with a free copy of Madden NFL 17 for either PS4 or Xbox One. Who knows, maybe your skills will be so impressive that you’ll get scouted through the app just by playing for fun.
