Adidas GMR insoles will boost your FIFA gameplay

Adidas GMR is “an innovation that merges physical football and digital gaming,” powered by EA’s FIFA and Jacquard by Google.

With the technology, players gain “the power to play connected by improving their FIFA Mobile Ultimate Team overall rating (OVR) through real-world play using the Jacquard by Google Tag,” a press release states.

This is done by placing an Adidas GMR insole inside your footwear. From there, it “recognises the actual physical movements footballers make on-pitch – measuring kicks, shot power, distance and speed,” the release continues. “By completing different challenges and hitting longer-term milestones, users will earn rewards and improve their Ultimate Team, powering their players in-game with real-world achievements.”

Adidas GMR is available to purchase online, here, and retails for £29.95 / €34.99 / $35 USD. Australian pricing was not detailed.

FIFA 20 is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch.
