This product is very good for now and again to see stats but seems too expensive for the occasional use it would get from my 9 year old. Also really need to be in an enclosed space so as not to lose it or have it stolen. The app did not always respond to kicks
Hands down best Christmas present ever according to our son! Easy to set up and extremely interactive. He is extremely excited about being able to learn outside of practice any time he wants! I've got a great video but can't figure out how to upload it.
It made his kit complete, as kids know when something is not quite right. If we had bought blue Chelsea socks, his first team kit would have looked wrong. Even though white socks are much more hard to keep clean.
1) Does it require any additional sensors in the goal it self or the surrounding or just simply the ball, and any regular goal.? 2) Is there a specific requirement for the Goal background.? Or regular Net is suitable? 3) Can the app be made into a challenge (points System) depending on accuracy of the shot and shot power.? 4) Do i need to factor in Distance to Goal and goal dimensions.?
I bought these for my son who is 6. He was delighted with them. However we did get the wrong size initially as I think the measurement guide is a bit confusing. For reference the right size for him was 5.5
Don't let the price put you off, these might be basic crew socks but they fit very well and have added elements that really enhance the feel. I wear these with X16+ PureChaos for training and love the mini three stripes on the hem, classy design overall.
I am using a iphone 6 with the Micoach ball and the phone wont connect and the ball wont charge, The light that shows that the charging station is working shows up. The light showing that the ball is misalligned wont show up.
Purchase the mall for my 11 year old son. We both love the product. The ball and app has definitely help my son practice and nearly master a couple of ball control kicks such as bending the ball into the corners of the net. Looking forward to software updates to the ball to increase functionality.
My 12 year old son received this ball as a gift. At first he was excited to receive the ball to improve his soccer skills (would consider him advanced rec player). We compared it to the 9450 electronic basketball which provides immediate verbal coaching feedback and hoped the Micoach would provide the same. Unfortunately, the Micoach provides feedback on the path of the ball and the type of shot but not insight into how to improve (i.e. follow through, kick ball lower etc.) The tips also seem to be static not related to the prior kick that was made. Yes the ball does provide significant information but the method of communication back to the user is limited and requires higher level skills to unlock. It would be great if there the verbal feedback or even written coach more than feedback on how to improve the last kick but have not been able to find that information. If it exists please let me know.
I bought this Micoach Smart ball believing that this ball could be paired with Galaxy S6, and I downloaded the Smart ball app. But when I try to pair it with the ball, app says that it could not find the ball. What can I dow
Wonderful and helpful. My son is very dedicated to soccer (football) and this ball is a wonderful tool in his kit. The ball not only records data to help improve, but it also provides coaching on techniques and methods to get better results. Kicking any ball for hours is a great way to improve - kicking this ball with direct feedback is amazing! It is important to read the instructions - things like how to connect, how to charge, alignment, etc. I had no problems - because, I read instructions before using anything. Now, I'm going to recommend this for all my son's teammates. The sharing feature also makes it possible to share results with coaches and trainer.
I bought this soccer balls for my son and my best friend's birthday. The smartest gift ever they enjoy it every day. My son loves it, it has helped him to get better at playing soccer and has given him more confidence when he plays with his soccer team. I truly love this ball. What a great way to help soccer lovers. Thank you Adidas ❤️
I love this ball because of the real time feedback, and the spot on aesthetic this is a 5 star ball and higher quality than a standard match approved ball. The only problem I going is that it is all white so after playing with it it get a little dirty. Yet the ball clean very easy, except some grass stains and dirt between the patches remain.
Ordered ball for grandson's Christmas, would not inflate or charge. Returned and ordered second ball. Left second ball on charger 24 hours and only showed charge of 1%...Great idea, but poor technology. Cannot recommend.
Purchase this item for a Christmas present. Great service and took advantage of 15% discount. My 12year old Grandson is a talented football player and feel this ball will be well used and enhance his skills.
First time I have purchased direct from Adidas. Have to say very disappointed. . Box damaged. Item marked .security seals all removed and damaged , even the paper work was loose and screwed up like a piece of waste paper. Shocked and disappointed, but it's going to be kicked around a football pitch once opened so have not returned item.i was expecting a lot better. Jon
