Agloves Work on Touchscreens

Updated on April 14, 2014

Before stepping out of the door for my morning run one cold morning, I realized that starting my iPhone App would be a problem. If I wanted feedback for all of my hard work I had to remove my gloves. Suddenly, I lost some of my motivation to work out in the cold. This may seem a bit over the top, but it was just one more hurdle to get past. I immediately began thinking of ways to get around the fact that my iPhone would not work with my favorite gloves. Cutting the tip off my glove’s pointer finger did not sound like a good idea but maybe a small slit in it would work just as well. After all, my finger would still be covered until I needed it to operate my iPhone. Now that I know about Agloves, I am relieved that I did not carry through with my impulse to use my scissors.

 

Agloves look like and wear like any other pair of knit gloves. They are stretchy, soft and comfortable and in addition they have a special ability. Without anything attached to the Agloves’s fingertips they work on any capacitive Touchscreen. The number of compatible devices is numerous and includes cell phones, cameras, e-Readers, MP3 players and GPS devices. At this time they are available in black with silver nylon thread running through it (keep reading to find out why this is important) – which actually makes them appear more gray than black. They are made from a washable combination of fibers that include Polyester, Nylon, Spandex and Acrylic. Agloves are comfortable with no seams and they stretch to fit snugly. The only choice you have to make is whether which size is right for you. The Agloves are unisex and are available in sizes S/M, M/L or XL.  

Why do Capacitive Touchscreens require just a light touch of our fingertips to work? Unlike Resistive Touchscreens that require direct pressure applied to the Touchscreen from your fingertip or from a stylus, a Capacitive Touchscreen interacts with the electrical impulses our body provides. So, why do Agloves work? Remember the Silver Nylon Thread that runs throughout the Agloves? That Silver Thread is a conductor of electrical impulses and interacts with the Capacitive Touchscreen much like our fingertips do. How cool is that?

 

As a runner who has to endure cold weather for several months every year and one that counts on my iPhone for feedback, the Agloves are a great addition to my winter running gear. I am also thinking of friends and family that could benefit from them as well. You do not have to be an athlete to wear Agloves. Taking the dog for a walk, waiting at the bus stop or riding the ski lift at a favorite resort are all good reasons to acquire a pair of Agloves.
