Among the eight buttons on the mouse, one located just above the trackball enables your accuracy and speed to be adjusted. In addition, the scroll wheel (the “wheel”) allows you to navigate both vertically and horizontally by tilting it.

Just below the wheel, you can see a button with the numbers “1” and “2”, which simply indicate that you can connect it to two devices at the same time and toggle the use with the buttons. The connection can be made either by a small IR receiver (Windows 7 or higher; macOS 10.12 or higher) or via Bluetooth (Windows 8 or higher and macOS 10.12 or higher).

The mouse still has a rechargeable battery, which receives power through a Micro-USB port. A full charge lasts up to four months depending on usage and, according to Logitech, with just one minute of charge it can already be used for a full day.

MX ERGO can be purchased for $ 100 directly through the Logitech website, or at retail stores across the United States.
