Use your smartphone or tablet without taking your gloves off

Overcoming winter challenges

As technology has advanced, so have accessories to compensate for tech toys like iPads and Android phones. The first generation of gloves that allow you to use a touchscreen were a good first attempt, but didn’t work well for everyone, but they have advanced quite a bit.

There are a variety of gloves on the market, but Isotoners are one of the more successful creators of the Smartouch Gloves which come in a wide variety of colors and are highly rated on consumer websites.

How do they work? Conductive thread on the index fingers and thumbs conveys (emulates) the electrical impulse of a human finger to the touch screen, tricking your device into thinking your finger is doing all of the work – try that with wool!

Some are made with fleece lining, most have slight elastic bands on the wrist to keep snow out, and all come in multiple sizes, so don’t let winter hold you back this year, keep moving in the field with some Smartouch gloves.
