Here’s Where You Can Use BearTek Gen II

How it Works

What happens when you take two of the biggest technological advancements in the 21st century and cram them in a pint-sized box? The awesome power of BearTek Generation II Technology. That’s what! (alright we may be overstating the impact just a bit).

We took the best of our Phone and Camera modules and combined them into one ‘ultimate’ module.
Tech Specs include:
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (standard)
  • Developer Options: Standard Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, BTLE, and we’ll deliver Ant+, RF or other versions if the demand is there
  • Gen1 got you up to 80 hours of battery life before needing recharging.  We think it is safe to say we are going to far exceed that with Gen2

Is BearTek Gen II Really Better?

The original BearTek Gloves already lived by our trademark “Every Other Glove Is Obsolete”.  Now BearTek Gen II is the Evolution of the Revolution!  We didn’t even list other great features like ladies styled gloves (-;

What You Get

Every BearTek Gen II glove kit will come with a glove (yes, you get both left and right), a BearTek Gen II BTLE module, the BearTek App, and an instruction manual.

Developers Kit:  You guys will get a pair of gloves, a module with your choice of standard BlueTooth, Wi-Fi, or BTLE radio, and 1-hour of our engineering time.


Available Styles

BearTek GEN II smartglove styles are up to you, so as Spice Girls said “Tell us what you want, what you really really want”! The ladies have been screaming for a pink snow glove – we will deliver that with Generation II.

Yes, your favorite BearTek Gen I styles will still be available with Gen II tech

From our Raving Fans

Real testimonials from real customers of Gen 1 (we’ve got a lot of them):

Seriously amazing… “OK, seriously, these are amazing. What a great invention!” 

So Easy…“With the BearTek gloves, controlling my music is so easy I don’t even need to think about it” 

Priceless… “Not having to take a glove off and pull out my iPhone to change a song, pause, or lower the volume has been priceless.” 

Excellent… “Technology as advertised. Excellent pair of gloves is a bonus!” 

I feel safer… “I feel safer riding with these gloves because I don’t have to remove my left hand from the handle bars. I ride a 900 lb. Harley and like the ability to keep both hands on the bike.” 

Over Three Years In The News

Here’s just a small sampling…

Former Marine and Director of Information Systems to the Legislative Counsel of the United States Congress.

Please note that shipping to any country outside North America and Canada may be delayed or cancelled depending on the feasibility of local product approval requirements or local import regulations. In a case of cancellation we will refund your pledge. There may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them yourself when receiving the shipment.  The beauty of dealing with a company that has already successfully launched a product and shipped internationally is we have the experience to fulfill major orders.  We will continue to work diligently to deliver you an unbelievable Generation 2 of our popular BearTek Gloves!


  • Waterproof?  You can’t take a bath or shower in them, but the water resistant pouches have been known to keep the technology operating.  Follow smart drying if you do get them too wet.
  • How many modules?  We used to have two modules, but Generation 2 will allow you to control both your phone and GoPro camera when you pair it with the BearTek app.
  • Battery Life?  Gen1 got you up to 80 hours of life.  I think it is safe to say we are going to far exceed that this time.
  • How will I pick my glove style?  When we complete the campaign we will query all our backers for their preferred glove size and glove style preference.  If you really want that pink equestrian glove then make sure you get a lot of your friends to also back that and make that request because we won’t be able to fulfill every desired style.  If your style didn’t get enough selection then we will work with you on a proper substitute style.
  • Can I just keep my current gloves and use BearTek Technology?  You sure can this time.  we are introducing a liner version that will work beneath your other gloves of choice.
  • iPhone or Android?  We work them both.  We originally launched BearTek with just iPhone controls, now we work them all (we actually even work Blackberry if you still have one).


Risks & Challenges

You can rest assured that we are going to work as hard this time as we did delivering you the highly ambitious Gen I BearTek smartglove.  Gen II will be ambitious too and one thing we know having been on the market for 3 years is perfection is a pursuit.  On top of delivering a fantastic product, it has always been BearTek’s mission to create “Deliriously Happy Customers” and check our reviews… our customer service is as highly touted as our product is.

Engineering, supplier, and delivery issues are very real concerns in any business, but know we will be upfront with you as we deliver the BearTek Generation II vision.

Become An Advocate of BearTek

Just about everyone that wears gloves could use a pair of BearTek Gloves to control something in your world.  But if you just don’t wear gloves for your sports, work, or general protection from the cold, then share this campaign with others that do.  We know they will love it and you just may help them have a more safe and convenient experience.  #BearTekUp
