Not worth the $ - they don't work!
on January 3, 2012
I received a pair of these gloves as a Christmas gift. I was excited; finally I could switch out the el cheapo knit gloves with touch screen finger tips that I bought and wear a nice looking pair of gloves. Wow was I ever wrong! The two main problems with these gloves? 1. They don't work with touch screens 2. They don't fit.
1. They don't work with touch screens. The only two fingers that have the smart touchscreen tips are the thumbs and the index fingers. Other gloves include the middle finger as well. Isotoner only put the smart screen tips at the very tippy top of the finger. It doesn't extend far enough down to be effective. Plus, some marketing genius slapped the isotoner logo RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FINGER TIP! So right in the part of your finger that you touch your screen with there is an isotoner logo made of material that won't activate your screen! Way to go guys.
2. They don't fit. As I mentioned, the smart screen tips are only at the very top of the index finger and thumb. On me, those tips don't even touch the tops of my fingers (and yes I have pulled them all the way down onto my finger and they still won't activate my iPhone). Instead they dangle off the top. Additionally they are super tight around the middle portion of my fingers and thumbs. So much so that my thumbs get cold from having the circulation cut off. I checked the size chart and they are the correct size according to isotoner's own chart.
So until Isotoner improves these gloves, don't waste your money.
