The Logitech MX Vertical Mouse is an ergonomic mouse that reduces arm strain
Some people swear by ergonomic mice. These oddly-shaped vertical mice are supposed to reduce forearm and wrist strain, by keeping your arm in a natural ‘handshake’ position.
Logitech’s new MX Vertical isn’t the first vertical mouse around — in fact, I reviewed an Anker Wireless Ergonomic Mouse recently. But the Logitech might be the nicest vertical mouse yet.
The MX Vertical is supposed to be “scientifically tested and ergonomist approved.” Logitech says its 57-degree vertical angle reduces muscular activity by up to 10 percent when compared to a standard mouse.
The mouse comes with a textured rubber surface and thumb rest for a solid grip. It has a 4,000 DPI sensor for accuracy and precision, which Logitech claims results in up to four times less hand movement (because you make fewer mistakes and move the mouse around less?).
The MX Vertical comes with a rechargeable battery that is supposed to last up to four months on a full charge, and can recharge via USB-C (yay!). Logitech Easy-Switch and Logitech Flow lets the user switch between two computers using the MX Vertical.
Like the other MX products in Logitech’s line-up, the MX Vertical sports a beautiful design — and a beautiful price. It will cost US$99.99 at launch sometime in September.
