totes»ISOTONER Introduces smarTouch™™ Gloves
Touch Screen Compatible Gloves Keep Consumers Cozy and Connected
CINCINNATI, OH - June 15, 2010 - Until now, using touch screen devices in cold weather meant having to remove your gloves. However, totes»ISOTONER announced today the Fall 2010 release of its new smarTouch™ gloves, which allow touch screen users to operate their mobile devices outside without sacrificing warmth.
smarTouch™ Technology meets >>ISOTONER Style
»ISOTONER smarTouch™ gloves feature a conductive thread, which is embroidered on each glove’s index finger and thumb. The thread conveys the electrical impulse from the fingers to the touch screen device (compatible with most smartphones, gas pumps, GPS devices and mp3 players). A non-slip palm design improves grip, while ISOTONER’s signature Stretch materials provide superior fit and flexibility.
“The smarTouch™ gloves integrate style, function and technology,” said Kelly Falkenstein, ISOTONER Marketing Manager. “People can now experience the warmth and comfort of »ISOTONER gloves while they stay connected in the cold.”
Wearing is Believing (Product Offerings and Availability)
»ISOTONER smarTouch™ Gloves are available in a variety of materials, with suggested retail prices ranging from $12 to $40. The gloves come in an array of colors and are available in both men’s and women’s styles. The collection launches in Fall 2010 and will be available in most department stores and mass merchants nationwide and online at www.isotoner.com
