Work smarter not harder, that’s the old adage that applies to any job, large or small. And although a computer mouse might seem like the latter, it actually plays a large role in your efficiency, and believe it or not, your health. A Bluetooth mouse provides freedom from your laptop’s tiny trackpad and a more comfortable and streamlined experience compared to the featureless mouse that your computer came with. Plus, the best Bluetooth mouse products are often customizable, so you can create the best working experience tailored to your needs.
When you factor in how much time you spend in front of your computer holding a mouse, you are going to want the most comfortable experience possible. Most Bluetooth mice are specifically designed to provide all-day comfort with an ergonomic design. Because when your hand is comfortable, you can focus on the things that really matter — whether that’s online shopping or responding to your boss’s email.
When choosing the best Bluetooth mouse, we looked for a few specific features:
- True Bluetooth connection, not simply a plug-in wireless receiver
- The ability to easily scroll and left-click as needed
- Long-lasting battery life
- Comfortable, ergonomic design
Below, you’ll find our favorite picks that will help you become the office all-star and keep your hands comfortable while doing it.
1. Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse
The Logitech MX Master 3 provides customizable precision and all-day comfort. This impressive Bluetooth mouse improves on its amazing predecessor, the Logitech MX Master 2 with software that enables even the most finite customization. The large thumb protrusion and slightly larger arched back compared to the MX Master 2 make for a slightly more comfortable experience. It’s also as comfortable as it is responsive, as it tracks well on virtually every surface. The MX 3 is simply a Bluetooth mouse masterpiece.
Pros: It is responsive on many surfaces. Ergonomic design. Fantastic customization options.
Cons: It can connect to multiple devices simultaneously, but responsiveness may suffer when it’s connected to too many devices. Slightly bulky, unattractive design typical of Logitech mouses.
2. Logitech MX Master 2
If you want a great mouse at a slight discount compared to the MX Master 3, then the MX Master 2 is a great second choice. One of the best parts about the Master 2, beyond its comfortable design and precision tracking, is the impressive rechargeable 70-day battery life. No need to fumble with single or AA batteries when it gets low. With six customizable buttons and two tracking wheels (one by your thumb) you gain complete control over how you use your mouse. All-day computer warriors should strongly consider this powerful Bluetooth mouse.
Pros: Lengthy battery life lasts over two months. Six customizable buttons.
Cons: For those looking for a smaller hand fit, the MX 2 is a hair bigger in size than the MX 3.
3. Apple Magic Mouse 2
Don’t let the minimalistic design fool you, Apple didn’t dub this the “magic mouse” for nothing. The Magic Mouse 2 doesn’t have any buttons, which has two advantages: it’s ambidextrous and it has trackpad functionality. Controlled completely by gestures, you can do some pretty nifty things with the Magic Mouse 2, depending on how you swipe, drag or pinch your fingers on the mouse. Leave it to Apple to create a simple yet incredibly advanced Bluetooth mouse.
Pros: This is an ambidextrous mouse that’s ideal for Apple hardware.
Cons: The max 1,300 DPI might not move quickly enough for some. Lightning cable is needed to charge.
4. Microsoft Arc Mouse
A uniquely designed Bluetooth mouse, the Microsoft Arc Mouse has a buttonless look, similar to the Apple Magic Mouse, but with a foldable design. Yes, this Bluetooth mouse folds. The spine arches when you’re ready to go to work and completely flattens when you need to slide it into your travel bag. And when you’re on the go, you won’t need to worry about a recharge, since the battery life lasts a lengthy six months. It’s a pretty wild design that is as portable as they come.
Pros: Affordable product that’s compatible with Windows, Android and Apple devices. It folds and has an extra-long battery life, making it ideal for travel.
Cons: The buttonless design is sleek but doesn’t have as many gesture features as the Magic Mouse 2.
5. Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
A slightly smaller option than the MX Master 2, the MX Anywhere 2S is as comfortable as it is portable. The rechargeable battery provides great portability when you need to work on the road. And if you need to simultaneously connect to multiple devices while at work, it can do that, too. It features five customizable buttons, along with software to help with the customizations. This Bluetooth mouse also comes with a wireless receiver for connecting to devices without Bluetooth compatibility.
Pros: Rechargeable battery makes it great for travel. Bluetooth and wireless connection. Clean and modern design.
Cons: Even if you lose the dongle because there isn’t any place to store it, you can still connect the mouse via Bluetooth.
6. Logitech MX Ergo Wireless Trackball Mouse
With an adjustable trackball anchored for your thumb to do all the steering, the Logitech MX Ergo Wireless Mouse finds a unique balance of customization and comfort. The angle of the trackball can be adjusted 20 degrees to find the most comfortable position for your hand. Like the MX line of Bluetooth mice from Logitech, you can connect to multiple computers simultaneously, all while sporting a rechargeable battery. Once you go ball, you might not go back.
Pros: The adjustable trackball provides unique positioning to get users as comfortable as possible.
Cons: First-time users may need to allow time to get used to the trackball design. Bulky design.
