Logitech M720 Triathlon

Logitech M720 Triathlon

The best wireless mouse

The Triathlon is comfortable for a wide range of hand sizes, and it has six programmable buttons and long battery life.

Buying Options

$40* from Walmart
$30 from Amazon
$30 from Best Buy

*At the time of publishing, the price was $30.

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

The Logitech M720 Triathlon can pair with, and quickly switch between, three devices via Bluetooth, or you can connect it via the included USB dongle. It also has six buttons that you can customize using Logitech’s Options software and a scroll wheel that toggles between ratcheted and smooth scrolling. And its single AA battery should last for two years, according to Logitech. But the Triathlon is contoured for right-handed mouse users—so it’s not ideal for lefties—and it doesn’t work on glass or mirrored surfaces.

Logitech M585 Multi-Device

Logitech M585 Multi-Device

A great mouse

The Logitech M585 Multi-Device is another comfortable wireless mouse with customizable buttons and long battery life, but it’s smaller than the Triathlon and equipped with fewer buttons.

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

Runner-up

Logitech M590 Multi-Device Silent

Logitech M590 Multi-Device Silent

A silent option

The Logitech M590 is the same as the M585 but has silent left and right buttons that provide feedback without the loud physical click.

Buying Options

$35 from Best Buy
$35 from Staples

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

If the Triathlon is unavailable, we recommend the Logitech M585 Multi-Device or the quieter—but otherwise identical—Logitech M590 Multi-Device Silent. The M585 and M590 are a little smaller than the Triathlon and have one fewer button, but most of our testers still found both mice comfortable. Like the Triathlon, the M585 and M590 connect via USB dongle or Bluetooth, but each Multi-Device mouse can pair with only up to two devices rather than the Triathlon’s three. Logitech claims two years of battery life for both models, and you can customize any of the five buttons through the Options software. Like the Triathlon, these mice are also designed for right-handed use and don’t track on glass or mirrors.

Logitech MX Master 3

Logitech MX Master 3

A fancier option

The MX Master 3 has a bigger, ergonomic design that’s especially comfortable, as well as a second scroll wheel at the thumb, but it’s more expensive than our other picks.

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac

Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac

Fancy, but for Macs

The MX Master 3 for Mac is identical to the standard version, but it doesn’t come with a USB dongle and can connect only via Bluetooth.

Buying Options

$100 from Logitech

Connection type: Bluetooth only

If you spend all day using a mouse, we recommend investing in the Logitech MX Master 3. It’s comfortable for all grips and hand sizes, though especially for people with bigger hands. Most notably, the MX Master 3 has a second scroll wheel for your thumb, plus five other programmable buttons that you can customize with the Logitech Options software. It can connect to up to three devices via Bluetooth, and the standard version (which works on any operating system) comes with a wireless USB dongle. (Note that the MX Master 3 for Mac does not come with a USB dongle.) It has a rechargeable battery that can last about two months on a single charge. And unlike our other picks, it can track on glass and mirrored surfaces. But the MX Master 3 is typically more than twice as expensive as our other picks.

Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600

Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600

An ambidextrous mouse

The ambidextrous Mobile Mouse 3600 is comfortable for left- and right-handed use, but it’s smaller, it has fewer buttons, and it can connect to only a single device via Bluetooth.

Buying Options

$30 from Amazon

May be out of stock

Connection type: Bluetooth only

If you mouse with your left hand or prefer something smaller, get the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600. The symmetrical shape works for lefties and righties, and our panel testers liked its grip, shape, button selection, and scroll wheel. But it’s smaller than our other picks, it has fewer buttons, it can connect to only one device at a time via Bluetooth, and it’s compatible with fewer operating systems than our top picks are.
