adidas GMR is a new way to play connected — it consists of the GMR insole and Jacquard Tag. You take the Tag, developed by Jacquard™ by Google and capable of detecting Football-specific movement, and place it in the GMR insole. The Tag understands what you do on the pitch and merges this into the FIFA Mobile game – giving you access to exclusive content, allowing you to increase your Team OVR and to earn bragging rights in leaderboard challenges.
All you need is the GMR product, a Jaquard compatible mobile device and the adidas GMR and EA FIFA Mobile apps – both of which are free to download via the app stores
The Jacquard Tag is kitted out with a gyroscope, an accelerometer, and a small processor capable of running on device machine learning that can differentiate Football-specific movements. It’s able to measure the number of kicks, shot speed, run speed, and total distance run.
You require a mobile phone which supports both the adidas GMR app as well as EA FIFA Mobile. Find device requirements for these apps under ‘What apps do I need?’
