The miCoach Speed Cell chip that can be found inside the adidas F50 adiZero II has established itself rather strongly following its inception, and we have been waiting ever since for Nike’s own ‘football boot with a brain’.
Nike are currently hinting that their Nike+ system may be developed further in order to be employed in the world of football boots, with therefore there being the possibility of getting a pair of “smart” stat-tracking Mercurials as a result.
This system is currently available for providing a lot of information about your running, including how fast you are going, how far you have gone and the amount of calories burned.
Similar to the miCoach system of the German brand, setting up a Nike+ account allows you to keep details of every run you make, set up a custom training programme and even challenge your friends.
