We purchased a brand new backboard and net set-up just for this basketball, and we had the best time. To those who want to use it to have the time of their lives shooting baskets and testing for accuracy, this is so much fun. You don’t have to plug in the ball either to calibrate or recharge it. The app (we use an iPod Touch) just updated again today, so it looks like Wilson is taking this product seriously as a contender for Christmas Gift of 2015.
I was never a basketball player or even much of a spectator. I’ve heard of basketball camps where kids go to learn accuracy, but this seems like it will easily take the place of a personal trainer. You have the usual set up of the app but then after that, each person can use the app on their own phone to practice shooting (in other words, you don’t all have to share one phone to play).
The only bad thing about the ball is the bounce. When we bounce it towards the ground, even as hard as we can, it doesn’t even come all the way back up into our hands. We have to bend down to pick it up before it rolls away. I don’t know if I got a “bad” ball or does this mean that the ball is intended for basket accuracy only and not a ball for playing basketball games. I wish I had not thrown away the box because it was nice for storage.
However, I can see this ball being a good purchase for a high school athlete who wants to work on their game privately.... although the steep price tag may steer them away. Maybe with time, the price will fall more in line with the intended audience. But overall, great concept!
This is a good way to improve shots and encourage practice. My daughter is a high school player in JV who sometimes gets to play varsity and is working up to that level. I think this ball is aimed right at this demographic, it adds the element of competitiveness that a lot of athletes thrive on to give the incentive for taking shot after shot to improve accuracy. Shooting baskets on your own requires discipline, this makes it a bit more into a game.
The app is free. There are four modes, Free Range (for shooting from all over court at least 7 feet away, this app tells you how well you do from different distances which is quite useful), Free throws, Buzzer Beater (clock countdown, making a shot extends the clock and Game Time (simulates a game, we did not play this much)
You do not need to remember to charge it. It works on batteries that last in theory for 100,000 shots. There is page on the app where you can check how many shots you have made. If you share with others though, it does not seem to keep track of total number of shots.
You can connect it to more than one phone, if kids want to take turns. Each person makes their own account and you use that to sign in on the app. This is great for taking the ball to basketball practice, all the girls can try it out as long as they are willing to put the app on their phone. Or if you have multiple players in the family everyone can keep track of their stats separately.
It bounces completely like a regular basketball, cannot tell the difference at all. Spins the same too. Also feels just like a normal ball.
You can use it with any net, so you can take it with you to practice.
Can be used inside or out.
Would like to be able to use Bluetooth headphones with the app, to eliminate the problem that you are playing a sport while carrying a smartphone and wearing earphones or earbuds with wires. However, using a Bluetooth headset (and also tried with speakers) lead to the sound dropping. I assume this is because the app is also connected via Bluetooth, but I am not sure. You can get around this if you are playing alone by using a wired speaker to connect to the phone, but wired speakers are sort of old school and actually surprisingly hard to come by.
You cannot tell the app that you made or missed a shot if it does not get it right.
There is some lag time for registering shots, this becomes very annoying when playing in the clock countdown mode.
You can turn the sound off for the app if you get annoyed.
You have to “aggressively” spin the ball 10 feet into the air ton connect it initially to the app. This actually takes some work.
The tighter the net and the closer to 10 ft the more accurate the ball was. Loose net did not slow the ball enough to register the shot. I am assuming it measure deceleration to call the shots. 10 feet is standard height, at least for high school. I have only seen a lower net at the elementary level.
It has to hit the ground between shots. This means you need to bounce it before shooting, which renders a ball return on your hoop a little less useful.
It does not track layups or dunks. The ball has to travel 7 feet (as far as I can tell before encountering the net) to register the shot.
I would guess the accuracy (when you meet the requirements of tight net on 10 ft basket, bounce before shot, 7 foot shot) at about 90%. This is a bit of a rough estimate, because I kept losing track while actually counting (guess that is the reason for the app).
If you stop playing for a few minutes, the ball goes to sleep. You need to wake it up again by doing a backspin and bounce to pair it again. I assume this is to conserve battery life.
The commentary is sort of “sports caster” which adds some fun to solo practice.
You can inflate it normally.
The Android version is coming in November 2015 in theory. The IOS version requires you to have iOS 8.0. This means it did not work with my daughters old ipod touch 4th G. I ended up borrowing an newer iPhone to test this product. I understand that the ball has not been yet released as of this review and hopefully the Android version will come out before they start selling the ball. If you are unsure, I would check Google play for the Wilson X app before ordering.
*UPDATE The Android app was promised for November, but now the site says December. BE SURE TO CHECK THIS before ordering to make sure that the app is available if you plan to use it with Android. I have deducted a star now, because I think that telling the customer it will be available and then changing the date is not acceptable.
