DribbleUp Smart Soccer ball

The DU Smart Soccer ball, is a smart ball built like any other genuine soccer ball. There are no batteries, wires or any electronic components to it. So no need to worry about how the ball will feel, its a real soccer ball. However what separtes this ball from the ones you and I grew up playing with, is that it seeminglessly pairs with the app that is used for training.

How does it work

When the app is launched, the ball is placed in front of the phone and phone will scan the ball and then viola, the ball is now in sync with the app. The ball keeps track of your touches and speed and after the drill is up, you will get feed back on your performance so you will know what to work on. This will allow you to easily train from the comfort of your home or anywhere else. Another cool thing you can do is if you have a smart tv, you can mirror your phone to the tv so you can have a larger view of what your doing.


  • real time audio feed back
  • virtual trainer
  • drill by drill breakdown,
  • no wires, chargers or batteries
  • tablet/cell phone stand


If your looking for ways to effectively train on your own without investing to much money, this is a great option for you. You can buy the DU smart ball for as low as $99.99 on Amazon if you get it with out the tablet stand. This would make a great gift for anyone trying to improve their skills. If your not impressed, Adidas has their own smart ball that is more high tech than the Dribble up. This particular ball does require it to be charged but depending on how much you use it one charge can last up to a week. The Adidas website is currently sold out, but you can buy it on Amazon. If you want to read my review before you buy it, you can follow this link. And please, feel free to leave comments. Have a great day.

  1. Great app. When I’ve practiced before it’s not something that I can measure how faster I’m getting. But this makes it easy to track. I can also use it to benchmark against players that are better than me to see how much I need to improve.
