Women's Texting | TouchScreen Gloves

Updated on January 1, 2014

The air is getting cold, snow is imminent. The weather is turning foul and it is not the best time to be outside in the cold weather using a mobile device.

I know my hands get chilled in the cold weather, and taking gloves on and off is a pain. Fortunately, I think that the solution is simple and easy. Touchscreen Gloves designed for the express purpose of being able to manipulate a touch screen without the need to take your warm mitten's off and freeze your fingers.

There are quite a few of these mittens, but the ones selected on this page are chosen not only for the effectiveness of their warmth and ability to manipulate the capacitive touch screen's but they also look pretty cute, and are therefore a fashionable alternative for women who want to also look a little bit stylish when outdoors in the inclement weather.

How do these woman's texting| touchscreen gloves work?

If you have ever tried to use a normal pair of gloves with a touchscreen, I am sure you have felt the frustration. You hunt peck and hammer at the screen and nothing happens. Or at best, you get some effect, but nothing like the precision and control you are used to getting.

Capacitive screens work in effect because they receive and transmit a small electrical charge from your fingers. A glove or mitten insulates you from the screen, so no movement.

There are three ways to get around this and still wear gloves.

1) Cut the finger(s) out. Your finger(s) will still make a connection.

2) Use a capacitive stylus. This stylus will provide the electrical connection to your device and you will not need to get any sort of special gloves.

3) Get something inside the gloves that transmit the electric signal from fingertips to outside of the gloves. This is how these touchscreen gloves work.

I am certainly no fashionista, but I think the picture above shows some of the amazing variety that can be found in these snugly gloves.

I know from personal experience that the last place you want to be on a brisk, 15 degree day is standing around texting with no glove on one of your hands. It does not take a lot to quickly loose body heat on that cold and blustery days. I think that afew of these mittens bridge the gap between utilitarian usage and quite a little bit of fashion. What do you think?
