DALLAS – October 2013 – BearTek Gloves launch globally October 21, 2013 and will be available to consumers during the 2013 holiday season. They are a unique and brand-new-to-the-market wearable technology gift for outdoor and action sports lovers that like to enjoy their sport with the safety of intuitive single hand control. The luxury class gloves are specifically designed for motorcycle, ski and snowboard enthusiasts to provide them the ability to stay connected to their phone, music media, and action camera devices with simple taps of their fingers.

By integrating Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities and other wireless technologies into the gloves, wearers are given instant connectivity in the glove fingertips to control their phone, music and other media devices like GoPro® cameras without physically touching them. The innovative design relieves the issue outdoor enthusiasts have suffered from of stopping, taking out their mobile device and removing their gloves to answer a call, change a playlist or operate their GoPro® camera. BearTek Gloves operate by tapping thumb to various finger touchpads embedded along the sides of the fingers to send a signal to the media device that is safely tucked away.

Beginning October 21 the snow glove will retail for $100, and the motorcycle glove for $130. The Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sync modules will each retail for $100. All are available at Gloves are available in black with silver trim accents and sizes small through XXL.

Once fully charged the module provides up to 80 hours of rechargeable battery life. The gloves include a 30-day “no questions asked” return policy and one-year warranty. By touching the touchpads users can manipulate key functions of phone, music or GoPro® camera. The Bluetooth module allows users to instantly play or pause music, skip forward/back, fast forward/rewind, and accept or reject incoming phone calls.
