The g.cell Snowboard Glove is a Bluetooth phone
Swany has the distinction of coming out with the first hands free cell phone ski and snowboard gloves The g.cell glove features Bluetooth adaptable cell phone in a totally functional ski and winter sports glove. Incoming calls are announced by the vibrating wrist action and can be accepted by pushing on back of hand. It has a unique call out – voice command dial system. The phone will last for 12 hours on standby and 4 hours talk time. For the $495 price it seems an expensive deal, but when you consider the cases where people were stranded or lost during skiing expeditions, it doesn’t seem a bad investment. The gloves will be out in time for the holiday season.
