Try To Catch This Running Mouse

The Logitech M720 Triathlon is one of Logitech’s wireless mouse in their repertoire. But this one is built to last, to match up to its name. Logitech claimed that with a single battery, the mouse can last up to 24 months – a whopping two years!

The mouse is easy to grip, albeit on the smaller side of things, and sports a sleek black design. However, fingerprints, oil and grime will stick onto the mouse easily and will easily show whenever you’re not using it. So, it is advisable to clean it every now and then to keep the mouse from being too dirty.

Onto the specs of the device – it sports a 1,000 DPI sensor and has six buttons, all of which can be programmed using Logitech Options, Logitech’s proprietary software. You’ll be able to program nearly all the buttons, with the exceptions being the Hyper-fast scroll button and computer swap button. For the latter, clicking it lets you swap to another device, allowing you to use the mouse on that computer. However, we could not manage to try this out as we did not have another Bluetooth connector handy.

During our testing, we’ve not noticed any issues with the mouse, and the buttons were all very responsive. We also liked how you can swap from scrolling indefinitely to scrolling normally with the use of the hyper-fast scroll button on the mouse; Logitech has added this button to a few of its computer mice, including the gaming variants. This button really helps whenever you need to scroll down the infinite number of pages of your social media sites, or the long work sheet that you’ve been working on over the weekend.

There is also a programmable button on the thumb rest of the mouse, allowing instant access to some of the Windows Options without you needing to reach far on your keyboard. The default use of the button is programmed to gestures, which allow you to perform different tasks based on you navigate the mouse. Holding the gesture button while moving your mouse up will bring up the Start Menu of Windows.

CHIP CONCLUDE: Overall, a great mouse that can last for ages with a single AA battery, and can be paired with multiple devices seamlessly.
