Logitech releases a new mouse with an ergonomic and sustainable focus

Logitech has announced the Logitech Signature M650 Mouse and Signature M650 for Business Wireless Mouse, both with new ergonomic features and capabilities.

With two different sizes and a left-handed option, the new device offers better, more personalized experiences for a wider range of customers, according to the company.

They say features like SmartWheel scrolling, near-silent clicks, and a contoured comfort design allow for faster, more comfortable operations.

There will also be the ability to customize the side buttons to preferred shortcuts using Logitech Options+. The wireless connection is strong too, and the mouse’s battery lasts up to two years, giving users greater security and peace of mind.

SilentTouch technology also enables quieter mouse clicks with a 90% reduction in click noise compared to the Logitech M185 mouse. According to Logitech, this is ideal when clicking during a video call to reduce noise that often disrupts calls.

Art O Gnimh, vice president of mainstream business for creativity and productivity at Logitech, says there is significant need and demand for new mouse technology.

“There are more than a billion knowledge workers in the world, and about half of them don’t use a mouse or have an entry-level or limited-feature wired mouse,” he says.

“The Signature M650 offers a true Logitech signature experience with basic productivity features that make working throughout the day easier and faster.”

Available in Off-White, Graphite and Rose, the Signature M650 works with Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome OS, ipadOS and Android operating systems. The devices can be connected in no time via Bluetooth (R Low Energy or Logi Bolt USB receiver).

Sustainability is a key focus of new projects, Logitech says. Products are designed to deliver better experiences and minimize the environmental footprint, with some of the Signature M650’s plastic parts being made from Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic – 64% for Graphite, 26% for Off White and 26% for Rose.

Logitech has initiated a PCR program aimed at demonstrating the company’s commitment to sustainable design and ensuring that plastics in end-of-life consumer electronics are recycled. As part of ongoing initiatives, the company says half of the mice and keyboards in its largest portfolio contain some level of PCR plastic, and that new product launches will use PCR plastic wherever possible.

The Signature M650 mouse will be available from May 2022 at MightyApe, PB Tech and JB Hi-Fi. The suggested retail price for the Signature M650 is NZ$59.90.
