During the winter months, a common problem is shared among iPhone, iPad, other smartphones and tablet users – frozen fingers. Your digits can become quite cold when trying to use your phone or tablet outside or on public transport. And wearing standard gloves is not an option, unless you want to take them off every time you need to use your device. That’s where touchscreen gloves come in, and the Digits touchscreen gloves by Moshi are one example that performs exceptionally well.
The Moshi Digits come in two different sizes/colours – dark grey (large) and light grey (small/medium). I tried the large gloves, which fit quite comfortably. Some of the fingertips were slightly too loose, but the Griptrak pattern on the inside of the glove provides a slip-free grip, so the tips of the gloves could easily be pulled down to achieve a tight fit at the tips of my fingers.
All 10 fingertips contain the special conductive fibre that allows great manoeuvrability, and this was proven when testing a number of games and apps. I was surprised at just how well the Moshi Digits performed when zooming in and out of maps, playing games that require precise movement, and texting. You won’t ever feel the need to take the gloves off and use your fingers uncovered.
The pattern on the outside is a bit cheap looking, but this is a minor issue. The gloves are very comfortable and warm, thanks to their soft micro fleece lining. They are also 100 percent hand-washable.
Overall, the Moshi Digits touchscreen gloves are a perfect accessory for the winter months, providing precision control over your phone or tablet, while keeping your hands warm.
