Logitech has just updated its flagship travel mouse. Meet the new MX Anywhere 3.

In terms of shape and design, the MX Anywhere 3 looks to be nearly identical to the predecessor. The sides seem to be a little more sculpted and they are now lined with silicone for a better grip.

It comes in three colours: Pale Grey, Rose, and Graphite.

The wheel is totally new. It's the new MagSpeed wheel that made its debut in the MX Master 3. It uses magnets to control the way it spins and users can switch between a smooth free-wheeling spin mode and a step-by-step ratchet mode. Logitech claims it's fast enough "to scroll 1,000 lines in a second but precise enough to stop on a pixel".

The MX Anywhere 3 features Logitech's Darkfield sensor that can work on all sorts of surfaces, including glass and wood. Tracking sensitivity is a very adequate 4,000 DPI.

Like its predecessor and all the other MX series mice, users can customise the MX Anywhere 3's buttons using the Logitech Options app. The MX Anywhere 3 also supports Logitech's Flow technology so you can use it seamlessly with multiple systems.

The MX Anywhere 3 features a built-in rechargeable battery and it has a claimed battery life of up to 70 hours on a single charge. A quick one-minute charge is good enough for three hours of use. The mouse charges via USB-C.

There's also a version designed especially for Mac. The MX Anywhere 3 for Mac comes in Space Grey and Pale Grey so that they match the look of your Macs or iPads better. Also, and perhaps more importantly, the MX Anywhere 3 for Mac only works via Bluetooth – you can't pair it with Logitech's Unifying Receiver.

For me, even as a Mac user, I think I'll go with the standard versions just to have the flexibility to pair with the Unifying Receiver. After all, Bluetooth connectivity can have the propensity to be wonky especially if you have many other wireless devices lying around.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 3 and MX Anywhere 3 for Mac are both priced at S$139 and will be available later in October 2020. You can look out for them on the Logitech Official Store on Lazada or on the Logitech Official Store on Shopee.
