A long time ago one of the distinctive products of Logitech was the trackball. The feature almost fell off the face of the Earth but now Logitech is bringing the trackball back in a big way via the introduction of its MX Ergo. This is a wireless trackball mouse with an adjustable hinge, allowing you to increase the angle from 0 to 20 degrees.
The device promises a battery life of up to four months and is described as the biggest innovation in trackball technology in over a decade. Logitech claims the MX Ergo reduces muscular strain by 20 percent versus a standard mouse.
The Logitech MX Ergo will be sold for $99.99 (109EUR).
Today Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) announced Logitech MX ERGO, a wireless trackball that sets a new standard for comfort and precision. Launching its first new innovative trackball in nearly a decade, Logitech’s MX ERGO offers personalized comfort with a unique adjustable hinge, precision tracking with multi-device connectivity for trackball enthusiasts, and those consumers searching for alternatives to mice and touchpads.
"We are so excited by this new trackball. It is back, better than ever and the idea for this trackball innovation was inspired by our users, who invented creative ways to achieve their desired level of comfort, sometimes adding additional wedges under their trackball for elevated angles,” said Anatoliy Polyanker, global portfolio and brand director at Logitech. “The MX ERGO is our first adjustable trackball that delivers on the need for elevated comfort in a beautiful design.”
The MX ERGO reduces muscular strain by 20% compared to using a standard mouse. With the adjustable hinge, you can increase the angle from 0 to 20 degrees which improves wrist posture and pronation. The carefully sculpted shape gives your hand full palm and finger support, while the soft rubber on the top ensures a good, comfortable grip for long hours of work.
MX ERGO offers the latest tracking technology, allowing faster and more precise navigation, with the ability to instantly change your cursor speed and accuracy for optimal control with the press of a button. An LED light illuminates when precision mode is activated, giving you the ideal control with the trackball.
Featuring a rechargeable battery that lasts up to four months on a full charge, depending on usage, the MX ERGO can also give you a complete day of work with just one minute of charge if you find yourself low on power.
MX ERGO is enabled with both Logitech Easy-SwitchTM and Logitech FlowTM. With Logitech Flow, available as a free download as part of Logitech® OptionsTM software, and Easy-Switch, you can take multi-computer use to a new level. Seamlessly switch between two computers with one mouse, and even copy and paste content, images and documents between them.
The MX ERGO is elegantly designed, with high-quality materials that feel good in your hand. The mice pair well with Logitech’s other luxury products like the Logitech CRAFT Advanced Keyboard with Creative Input Dial, Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote, or Logitech MX Sound. Combined, these products give you a premium experience that looks and feels better on your modern workspace.
