I live in Chicago. I have all my life. And it gets very cold in Chicago. Very, very, very cold! I was excited when given the opportunity to review SmarTouch Gloves. But when I got them, it was not yet cold enough to wear them. We have been having some strange up and down weather in Chicago and it stayed warm this year a little longer than usual, then it went up, then it went down. Even last week it was in the mid 60s! Yes… in Chicago, in November.

But this week?? Different story. It has been quite chilly. It has been in the 30s in the morning and evening and I think the high today is 47. Brrr… No, it’s not exactly winter yet, but it is still chilly.

And when it’s cold and you need to answer your touchscreen phone while outside, you freeze your fingers. Need to send a text? Not fun in the cold. smarTouch gloves is what you need!

smarTouch gloves are brought to us by Isotoner, who we know makes great gloves. What is special about these gloves is the conductive thread that is embroidered into the end of the thumb and index finger on both gloves. The thread sends an electric impulse from the fingers to the touch screen. It makes devices that work by touch think that you are touching it with your fingers body heat. Pretty cool. I have thread them out on my iPhone, HTC Evo, a Sony Ericcson Xperia X10, and an iPad. It works well with all.

smarTouch gloves are available for both men and women. They come in several colors. And you can get them lined or unlined. Prices range from about $20 – $30.
