Smart Touch Gloves for Geeks

Updated on April 10, 2014

Keep your hands warm while you text

Keep your fingers warm or use your phone or tablet? It's a very hard decision faced by most of us each winter's day. Well inventors are geeks too and thankfully they have come up with some very cool ways to keep your fingers warm without having to give up using your devices outdoors.

No more pulling off your gloves in a hurry to answer the phone or swipe to the next page on your kindle, with these gloves life in winter is warm and cosy.

Check out my picks from the huge Buy these Agloves ® Sport Touchscreen Gloves

Different Types of Smart Phone Gloves

Early versions of these were not very warm, not very accurate and certainly not fashionable. Thankfully things have improved and the latest gloves can offer warmth, water resistance and even style!

From designer leather to rugged outdoor designs there is a style and a price to suit everyone. You can buy them made from wool, leather or synthetic that allow you to use all of your devices just like you were using your bare fingers. Cheaper brands generally only include the conductive material in 1-2 fingers and the thumb. If you think you will be using them a lot look for one of the brands with 5 finger connectivity.

Texting and browsing is easy with any of these brands, although some people find they need to change their technique slightly by using the flat part of the finger more rather than the side. If you think this will bother you be sure to choose a pair with a bigger conductive pad.

      Oh my! I need this in my life.... like now. Today I thought I'd lose half of my fingers. I could really use these in general. Excellent gift idea!

      These would really help - anything to keep your hands healthy. I imagine these would work well on the computer as well - that is where I need protection.
