The German multinational company is undoubtedly the industry that invests more than others in the technology sector, as evidenced by the latest generation of both soccer and training shoes designed with the addition of a micro chip, which with the help of a special app (which can be downloaded for free), is able to track the statistics and progress of each sportsman.
Several soccer players, for example, have enjoyed trying out SnapShot's features and functionality, including Barcelona and Real Madrid champions Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale, who challenged each other by testing their ballistic skills. But let's go in order and see a little more in detail the features of the two apps as described by the iTunes Store and PlayStore...
