Every day I walk the few blocks from our house to the local school to pick up my son at the end of his school day. And every day I stand outside waiting for my notoriously slow child to finally emerge from the building. In the summer, I don’t mind at all but winter in Saskatchewan is not a very pleasant time to be standing outdoors doing nothing.
To occupy myself, I sometimes check emails or read through social media updates on my phone. But since it has a touchscreen, I usually end up with frozen fingers as I wait. That’s why I was so excited to try ISGLOVES from FieTT, conductive gloves that can be used on a touchscreen.
When the gloves arrived, I pulled them on immediately to test them out. The first thing that I noticed was that ISGLOVES looked just like regular gloves. I have seen other conductive gloves advertised and for the most part they had white fingertips with conductive thread woven into the fabric. While I’m sure they work well, I don’t like the different coloured fingertips. The ISGLOVES were pure black and looked sleek and stylish.
I pulled out my phone to see how the gloves worked and the touchscreen was just as responsive as if my hands were bare. It was a little more difficult to type on the virtual keyboard since my fingertips were bulkier than usual, but I was still able to send texts, check emails, play games and do anything else I wanted on my phone while wearing the gloves.
The only downside to these gloves is that they are quite thin, so for a bone-chilling day a strong wind chill, these gloves just aren’t enough to keep my hands warm. But for a mild winter day, they are a fabulous way to use a touchscreen phone even when outdoors. And on especially cold days, I’ll sometimes wear the gloves underneath my thick waterproof mittens so that if I need to check a message quickly while out of the house, my hands stay warm when I do so.
FieTT wants to give you a chance to try out these innovative gloves for yourself, so the company is very generously offering one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader their own pair of ISGLOVES!
