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.
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.
My friends at Radians continue to roll out some very useful glove innovations and they haven’t disappointed me yet. The latest model that I’ve tested is the new RWG-532 Touchscreen Cut Resistant Coated Grip Gloves.
The touchscreen sensitivity is superb and they test out at an EN388 – 4,3,4,3. Level 3 cut resistance. The price is modest, too.
The biggest advantage is that these gloves improve productivity and keeps the user protected by allowing use of touchscreen devices without having to remove their gloves.
Go to the link below and see them in action since we posted a You Tube video link in the product details.
It seems like electronic giants want to get into the glove business. This became obvious to me when I received a handful (pun intended) of emails yesterday touting the latest and greatest new glove wearable devices.
The first one arrived from Samsung followed by one from HTC and then capped off by one from Toshiba later in the day. Was this a coincidence or an April Fool’s joke? We’ll just have to see. You can review the articles on your own time and make your own assessment. Just make sure to read the fine print.
In the meantime, if you can’t wait to see if these gloves will ever hit the shelves, you can purchase some Touch Screen Gloves from us.
They’ve been a long time coming but they are finally here.
These new Touch Screen gloves are made by ATG, the same company that makes our extremely popular G-Tek Coated work gloves. The new gloves are called G-Tek Touch
and come in sizes XS to XXL which make them popular for both men and women.
If you currently use the G-Tek gloves then they need no introduction. If you don’t, then you need to check them out.
Applications include: Construction, Sanitation, Law enforcement, Utilities for Electronic & Computer Assembly, Quality Control, Inspection and General Assembly.
Performance Properties: EN388: 4131
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.
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
