Logitech is back with several new computer accessories aimed at the professional user to help improve workplace productivity.
The main one is MX Anywhere 3sa wireless mouse with a similar design to its predecessor, the Anywhere 3. Instead of changing its look, Logitech focused on improving the internal hardware by adding a new 8,000 DPI (dots per inch) optical sensor. According to the advertisementThe updated sensor allows the Anywhere 3S to work on “almost any surface”, most notably on glass. Optical mice usually don’t work well on glass surfaces because the laser passes through the material instead of reflecting back as it should. The fact that this device runs on glass makes it even more versatile than the old model.
Speaking of improvements, the Anywhere 3S comes with the company’s Quiet Click technology to mute button clicks. It’s a small change, but your co-workers and roommates (hello, remote workers) will appreciate it. Aside from these two inclusions, the Anywhere 3S shares a lot of the same features as the Anywhere 3, including compatibility with all major operating systems (OS) and a 70-day battery life. We have to mention that there is no bundled dongle as it comes with Bluetooth already installed for “seamless connectivity” (which is also one thing you won’t lose).
You can pre-order the MX Anywhere 3S now for $79.99 in four different colors (graphite, heather gray, pink, and black). In the UK and Australia, the mouse will be sold retail £89.99 And AU$139.95, respectively, in three individual colors (black omitted). The launch date is set for June 6.
Along with the Anywhere 3S, Logitech also revealed MX Keys S Wireless Advanced Illuminated Keyboard. The name is quite full, but it refers to a key smart lighting feature. When the keyboard’s proximity sensors detect a hand approaching, the keys automatically light up—helpful when you’re dragging your hand throughout the night. The brightness and duration of the backlight can be set via Logi Plus options mobile app.
Other notable features include Smart Actions to “automate repetitive tasks” via keyboard macros, as well as up to 10 days of battery life with the backlight on. With the lights off, this battery can last a whopping five months on a single charge.
the MX Keys It is currently available for purchase internationally in three different forms. You have the standard keyboard in the same four colors mentioned earlier for $109.99 (£109.99/$229.95 AU).
