Gyrosopic sensor question for engineers (kinetics, etc.)

Can a gyroscopic sensor (such as the type that are typically used in smartphones) embedded in this black object
that is rotating around the X axis measure the number of rotations around the X axis if the object may or may not also be rotating at the same time in random ways (number of partial or full rotations, speeds, and directions) around the Z axis?

If so, is the Z axis rotation irrelevant, or is there special mathematics involved in filtering out the affects of the Z rotation on the measurement of X axis rotation? If the latter, what type of mathematics is that? Also, what is the impact of using a 2-axis vs. a 3-axis gyroscopic sensor for this measurement?
