Rated 5 out of 5 by BRYGAR BEST SMART BALL CREATED
I would recommend this ball to anyone that wants to be a better shooter. I had friends and teammates from all levels try this ball out with me and I've heard great feed back from them as well. My teammates loved this ball and professional coaches recommend this ball for any level to get better and succeed in the sport. The ball helps you to become a better player. You can see your shot improve within a week. This ball is worth the price you pay for it. Best ball I've ever played with can't wait for it to come out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GunCo Awesome training ball
I bought the mi coach smart soccer ball for my son. He loves the game and loves to play. He prefers to train with the ball instead of playing video games, so this definitely gets him off the couch and makes him active outside. The ball is amazing! It actually shows real time data tracking speed, spin, trajectory, etc after each kick. My son won't stop training or playing with it. He loves the challenges included with the app. This ball is a definite must have for any soccer player. Adidas does it again, creating innovative and practical equipment and apparel. Thanks Adidas! !

I originally bought this ball for myself and within a very short space of time the technique that the ball had helped my with was transferable to any ball I would kick, it made my game play more competent and confident and meant that my processing speed was much quicker on the ball and the accuracy of what I do with it has increased dramatically. I now use the ball with my students (9-16) and the rate with which they improve with the knowledge of how to strike a ball well and the understanding of different ways of manoeuvring the ball for crossing, fading, curling and knuckling is astounding. All of the students I have worked with when asked "what do you do when you kick the ball?" reply "I run up and kick it" and the improvement in their consistency, accuracy and power comes from having a knowledge of kicking process and technique from the ball and app. They love using the ball both for the novelty of using an electric football and because it takes them from playground football to a detailed and successful kicking method. It was easy to find the app underwhelming and trivial at first but once individual aspects of kicking are changed even in the smallest of ways a very visible difference is apparent and my feelings of mild disappointment were gone. The general consensus from all that have used the ball is that it is a work of brilliance. Yes it is expensive but worth investment for both improvement as a footballer and a productive use of MANY hours working on kicking technique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrishinojo Amazing experience with the smart ball
I had such a great experience with the smart ball. The touch on it was amazing. I learned a lot of new ways to strike the ball and where to hit it which will help me in my professional career as a soccer player. I also learned new things about how hard I kick it, how fast the ball travels, and the rotation on the ball which I didn't think it was possible. I definitely will recommend this product to players young and experienced, and coaches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Charizard Really great purchase
The micoach ball is really cool. It shows everything about how you kicked the ball, where you kicked, the balls trajectory, how fast it spun, and more. iPad users have to download the app from the website instead of the AppStore. Only thing that I wish was added was the ability to deflate the ball for traveling with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny Cardello Phenomenal!!!!
The idea of a ball that coaches you through a free kick is astonishing! When I was training, to become better with free kicks, it was based on feel, trial and error. Trying to analyze precisely where the ball was struck, how much rotation and power that was applied was almost impossible. Now, with the new Adidas Smart Ball and App, players can see where the ball was exactly struck, how much rotation and power was applied and the flight path. This will help players move leaps and bounds a head, at a much faster pace. Simply put, this is phenomenal!
The App is where the genius is! Taking an ample amount of data and breaking it down into simple instructions and information that can be easily translated to the general consumer. The App also has designed games for competitive fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Old man 2 Micoach Smart Ball
Great for free kicks to understand effect of rotation and speed. Kids love it - encourages friendly competition especially when trying to kick within a small range of mph. The visualization through the graphing application on the smart phone really captures the kids attention. Overall great buy. The ball itself plays and feels like a Nike match ball and the quality is solid. How you would change the rechargeable battery is beyond me.

The Adidas Smart Ball is truly a great soccer ball!
I've been playing soccer for a good 11 years and have played in multiple out of state tournaments in Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Seattle. I have played both club and high school at the varsity level. I was given the smart ball to test and I really saw no reason to complain at all: even if you do not use it for the technology, the ball itself feels like an Adidas champions league ball or World Cup ball, giving the ball on it's own a good feeling. It is soft to kick with good padding making it a good ball to have. Then when you add the brand new technology of te smart ball, you get an absolutely amazing ball! There are many features with the app that make kicking it around with a friend that much more fun. Me personally, I used a feature called Kick It the most where after you have the ball linked with the app, you take a kick or a free kick and the ball records information about the kick and sends it to the app to be displayed. You can see the speed at which you kicked the ball, the spin that the ball had and how much spin, and you can also see the trajectory of your kick. Finally there are other features that are extremely useful to make your shot better. All in all, it is basically a high quality ball on it's own whether you use the technology or not but the technology makes it that much better, it was really a great ball to have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frenchie Lots of fun!
This is a great product. I thoroughly enjoyed using it, and kicking it around with my friends. I think one of its best parts is that you aren't forced to use it as an advanced computer chip ball if you don't want to. It's perfectly functional as a normal ball without the gadgets. However with that being said the phone app is great, and with all the self-improvement features that it has it can be very helpful. It is well designed and is simple to use, not to mention great fun.
