One additional feature I need to mention is the fact that these are also Touch Screen compatible.
If you use the Fingerless Models this is not a necessary feature. However, for those of you who prefer a Full Fingered Fitness Glove, then we have you covered. Pun intended.
The benefits of this feature allow you to use your touch screen device while working out.
1. Update your progress on your favorite fitness app.
2. Choose your most motivational music that will get you through your workout.
Is there a difference? The answer is a simple NO!
Frankly speaking, they are the same type of glove. However, on our web site we have two category listings. One for Cell Phone Gloves; and one for Touch Screen Gloves. This simply reflects how long we’ve been around and how long we’ve been selling Cell Phone Gloves.
You see, when we initially introduced Cell Phone Gloves to you back in 2008, there was no such thing as a Touch Screen cell phone. Hence the category name Cell Phone Gloves. These gloves were convertible type gloves where you could remove the fingertip to touch the buttons on the phone. Actually, these are still very popular today.
Then, and shortly afterwards, along came the Touch Screen cell phone and that lead to the introduction of the conductive fibers and polymers commonly found in the Touch Screen Gloves. This allowed new types of Touch Screen Gloves such as leather gloves and even some coated work gloves.
So, and in conclusion, if you are searching our web site, the same gloves are included in each category so don’t be confused. It’s actually helps your preferred search engine when you find us.
In that effort, we’ll keep our two categories just in case.
Because of the fire potential, it dawned on my today that we have a few solutions for handling or returning your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smart phone.
I personally own a Note 5 which I love and considered up-grading to the Note 7 later this year. Unfortunately, those plans are on hold due to the recall by Samsung.
In any case, if you have a Note 7 and are concerned about the burning curiosity that may develop as you plan to carry your phone into your local cell phone retailer; we have a few good gloves that may dampen that concern.
See our Heat & Flame Resistant gloves. These will be a great preventive measure to avoid any burns to your hands. If you don’t have a Note 7, you may want to bookmark this link in case you may need any heat or flame resistant gloves in the future. BTW, the Wells Lamont gloves are always a good choice.
Don’t forget, we are your best glove source and we try to cover all the bases and your hands. We also know how to have fun when it comes to gloves.
It’s official. No joke, Samsung has filed for Smart Glove Patent.
You may recall last April when I wrote about the April Fools’ joke that Samsung played regarding a Smart Glove. Well, it seems that the joke was more about a reality. Will Samsung and Apple do battle again over patent infringement? Maybe, since I wrote in 2009 about Apple filing a glove patent.
In any case, based on the patent applications, I believe we will soon see new wearable electronic devices in the form of gloves. After all, we currently sell various types of touch screen and cell phonegloves which continue to increase in popularity. For those that need to know the difference, touch screen gloves are self-explanatory and cell phone gloves employ removable digits.
In case you’re curious and to give you an idea what a Smart Glove can become, the diagrams revealed that the glove will feature flexible displays and also a number of sensors that are found within the glove itself. (see image) The actual patent applications describe the product as a “finger motion recognition glove.”
As usual, I’ll keep everyone informed here as I learn more. The one thing you can count on is that we will feature any Smart Glove that becomes available once we get are hands on them.
Apple reported today that they sold 48 million cell phones just in the last quarter which is an amazing amount to comprehend by most of us.
Nonetheless, as a major supplier of cell phone and touch screen gloves since 2008, we hope that this translates to more cell phone glove sales. The artic weather blast hitting North America this week can’t hurt either.
If you are in this winter zone and use your cell phone outdoors then check out our special offers on cell phone gloves. We would like to move our remaining inventory so we can make room for our spring collection.
I think talking about the spring and a sale is warm and “maybe” cool, too.
In September I was happy to boast about reaching the astonishing milestone of One Million page views since January 1, 2012. That benchmark was shattered with our holiday glove sales and we ended up with a remarkable 1,714,759 customer page views by December 31st.
As a reminder to those less fluent with internet analytics, page views are the conservative metric when evaluating web site analytics. The example being that if we counted actual hits, the number would be 7 to 10 times higher due to images, etc. You can see this in the chart which I added for the doubtful.
In conclusion, I wish to thank everyone for your support and your business and I wish you the best in the New Year.
We’ve got some exciting new gloves to talk about this year so I’ll be back in touch shortly. In the meantime, you might like to take a look at some good Winter Gloves.
Many phone calls this year about cell-phone and touch screen gloves has been largely generated with questions about three new leather models we just introduced.
The simple answer: “No! You do not have to remove the gloves.”
That’s because these new revolutionary gloves combine the new TouchTec™ nanotechnology into fine glove leathers which enable “any” finger and thumb to navigate a touch screen.
I won’t bore you with all the technical mumbo jumbo since I know it’s more important to see the gloves we are taking about this year.
The gloves getting all the kudos are three new models by the legendary Grandoe Glove Company and we offer both men’s and woman’s models. Another kicker – NO premium upcharge!
Now you can keep your hands warm when you’re out in the cold and using your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch without taking your gloves off – it’s possible with TouchTec-enabled gloves. You can even use the mouse pad on your favorite laptop computer. Try doing that with normal gloves on.
In closing, order today before they sell out.

OK! OK! There’s no need to remind me that I just wrote about “these” gloves and cell phones gloves just 2 days ago. Let’s just say I’m a bit behind the times. I’m not saying nor would I ever say I’m behind on glove technology – I’m just behind on cell phone technology. After all, I still enjoy my clunky Blackberry keyboard. And, believe it or not, it was my very first cell-phone just two years ago. Don’t laugh – I’m just a glove guy!
Anyway, my “young” entrepreneurial staff brought me to my senses once again. It became touch-and-go for a time (pun intended), but I’m reminded that the touch-screen interface has finally become mainstream. It seems these days, high-quality touch-screen-based interfaces have made their way into PC’s, tablets, phones, PMP’s, digital cameras, and a host of other devices.
Actually, and after thinking about this, this was good news to my ears since we sell TOUCH SCREEN GLOVES
, too. WOW, I nailed it again! But don’t forget, I am the Glove Guru. So, after 2 days, I relented and now we also have a shopping page devoted to guess what? Yep! That was an easy guess, huh?
Anybody want to buy my Blackberry? I’ll be happy to throw in a “new” pair of cell phone gloves
A year ago today I mentioned our record sales of cell phone gloves and one year later things haven’t changed. This past weekend we surpassed last year’s sales already. I’m not surprised since we expanded our cell phone glove choices to over 23 models and styles – not including all of the sizes and color options.
In fact, we even have a special shopping page dedicated to Cell-Phone Gloves
. This page makes it easier to narrow your choices down from all of our winter glove offerings
and includes all of the men’s, women’s, and girl’s models ranging from fashion leathers to colorful knits.
When shopping for cell-phone gloves
you need to know that there are two types. One type has removable finger tips and thumb tops and the newer types are touch-screen versions. With either type you don’t have to remove your gloves in the cold weather to use your cell phone or tablets.
We also offer a handy Gift Certificate
option for those picky persons on your holiday shopping list. This way they can pick the model they prefer and you don’t have to guess on the size or color either.
Although we are probably the largest source for cell-phone gloves, I wouldn’t delay. They will sell out fast since they make ideal gifts and stocking stuffers.
Happy Holidays, The Glove Guru
