Back in February, only a few months after Wilson introduced its smart basketball, the company followed that with a similar product for football players. Up until now, however, Wilson hadn't shared any pricing or availability details about the X Connected Football. But today it announced that the smart football will arrive on September 8th for $200, the same price as the basketball version. With the Wilson X Connected Football, you can use an iOS app to get a breakdown of your throw, such as the distance, speed, spin rate and spiral efficiency.

Additionally, the NFL-approved ball comes with five game modes designed to help you improve your skills, as well as compare your stats with friends through the app. If you're interested, Wilson is taking pre-orders already, which include a free copy of Madden 17 for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
