NuTouch Gloves
Company: Newer Technology
Price: $19.99

 


I live in the Northeast region of the United States, where every winter, cold is a way of life. Using your iPhone or other smartphone outside is not a pleasant experience: either you’re unable to manipulate the screen with a gloved hand, or you need to remove your gloves to use the phone. Neither option is a good choice.

Enter NuTouch Gloves by Newer Technology, the perfect marriage of convenience and warmth.
