Hello everyone! Today, I am reviewing a Logitech product - the Logitech® MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse! 

The Design
The MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse is released in July 2015 and is an upgrade to the Logitech MX Master. It has a similar brown golden side as the MX Master but it looks less bulky and spot a slimmer profile. 

The mouse is slightly longer than my M325 but has a flatter, longer curve for the fingers and palm. As I have a bigger palm, the relatively shorter profile of the MX Anywhere 2 compared again to my M325 allows more area of my palm to be rested on the table-top.

The MX Anywhere 2 has a scroll wheel, gesture button, the left and right click buttons, two buttons on the side, and three buttons on the underside. The equiped Logitech Pico Unifying receiver is so tiny!

The Usability
The MX Anywhere 2 is easily connected to any PC or Mac by the tiny little Logitech Pico Unifying receiver into a USB port or via Bluetooth smart. Just turn it on and press the connect button! Dual connectivity and Easy-Switch between 3 devices! The switching is easy via the button at the bottom of the underside of the MX Anywhere 2.
Using the MX Anywhere 2 on glass is easy as using on a solid wood desk. The Darkfield Laser Sensor on the MX Anywhere 2 allows me to do work on my glass dinning table while watching the shows on TV!

The MX Anywhere 2 uses rechargeable batteries, and charging it is easy using the USB cable that comes with it. Just plug the cable to your computer and to the micro USB port on the MX Anywhere 2 and it starts charging! According to the specifications, every minute charged means 2 hours of usage. Best of all, you can continue to charge and use the mouse at the same time!

The Scroll Wheel

One reason why the scroll wheel deserves a section by itself in this review. I often scroll through long documents in the course of work and the scroll wheel is lovely in this. Just by clicking the scroll wheel, you get to switch between hyper scroll or click by click navigation. Super time saver when you just need to scroll down to that tiny part you need.

Customization
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse is can be customized with the Logitech Options software. Manage your mouse from the application and you can change how the buttons work, and the different gestures when you use the gesture button. 
The MX Anywhere 2 spots a gesture button, which works pretty well with Windows 10. Just press the button and move the mouse in any of the four directions to activate the gesture features such as switching between desktops, programmes and whatever you have configured in the Logitech Options.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse is available in Singapore now! Check out more specifications and details on http://www.logitech.com/en-sg/product/mx-anywhere2 .
