Logitech today announced the launch of the MX Vertical, the company's most advanced ergonomic mouse to date.

The MX Vertical, which was designed in collaboration with ergonomic experts, combines ergonomic design elements with MX mouse performance for a mouse that cuts down on forearm strain and wrist pressure without impacting productivity.

Up to 12 percent of computer users feel discomfort or pain on a daily basis according to a recent survey, and that's the consumer base Logitech is targeting with this product. Logitech tested dozens of prototypes and designs to come up with the ideal shape, weight, and glide that eases pain but doesn't impede mouse usage.

Logitech's MX Vertical Mouse features a 57 degree vertical angle, reducing muscular activity by up to 10 percent compared to a standard mouse. It puts the mouse into the same position you might use when shaking someone's hand, offering a thumb rest and a comfortable grip.

Logitech designed the mouse to fit a range of hand shapes and sizes, and there's a texturized rubber surface that provides an ideal amount of grip. A built-in 240mAh rechargeable battery provides up to four months of usage, and an included quick charge feature provides three hours of power with one minute of charging.

The mouse is highly customizable with an adjustable 4,000 DPI high-precision sensor, which allows for four times less hand movement compared to a standard mouse to reduce usage fatigue. A switch at the top of the mouse allows the cursor speed and accuracy to be easily adjusted from 400 DPI to 4,000 DPI, while Logitech software allows for further customization.

Easy-Switch functionality lets the mouse switch between two computers with no need to re-pair, and Logitech Flow software lets text, images, and files be copied and pasted between multiple machines with the MX Vertical.

Logitech's new MX Vertical Mouse is priced at $99.99 and will be available in retail stores starting in September. The mouse can be pre-ordered from the Logitech website starting today.

Bring wired one. Wired whatever is much better than wireless whenever possible for anything, including also keyboards and mice. Batteries are obnoxious to the environment, besides much less convenient (for instance, less responsive) and a pain to recharge routinely. We are destroying planet Earth and nobody seems to care.

It can be connected via USB-C! From the Logitech site: "THREE WAYS TO CONNECT: Connect MX Vertical via the included USB-C charging cable, Logitech Unifying Receiver, or Bluetooth."

This is an important bit of information that, in my opinion, should definitely have been included in the story.

Like you said, wired is sometimes vastly preferable. I've worked at an airport where bluetooth was unusable, no idea why (radar?). Really happy with this, and Logitech seems to understand that USB-C is the way to go forward!

I’ve been using an évoluent vertical mouse for years. It is so much better for your arm as it is in the correct position. Nice to see there is some competition.

It does indeed look ridiculous. But after using the MX Trackpad, I’m willing to look ridiculous using it too. The ergonomics are incredible.
