House Art Here's how the MX Anywhere 3 compares to its larger and more expensive sibling the MX Master 3

As far as design goes, the MX Anywhere 3 is nearly exactly the same size as the Anywhere 2s but it has new silicone side grips and a slightly higher bump on its back that helps it fit into your palm a bit more easily. As of now, there are a few options which will allow you to press a button on the side to stop or start your video.

As far as design goes, the MX Anywhere 3 is about the same size as Anywhere 2, but with new silicone side grips and slightly higher protrusions on the back, it's easier to fit in the palm of your hand. MX Anywhere 3 comes in three colours - Graphite, Pale Grey, and Rose - while MX Anywhere 3 for Mac is available in pale grey. It's more complicated than it sounds and I love the side wheel that adorns the MX Master 2s and its successors. The mouse can be connected with upto 3 devices simultaneously, and using Logitech's app, copy paste content across these devices as well.

Last fall, Logitech released its flagship MX Master 3 mouse, which featured a super-smooth scroll wheel that immediately put everything else on the market to shame. Obviously, since the buttons are customisable, that means you can program them to do other tasks instead. And with so many people being forced to work or study from home in tight spaces, between its price and size, the MX Anywhere feels like a better value for both home and future mobile productivity (ya know, when people can actually travel again). Thankfully, Logitech hasn't messed with any of the MX Anywhere's other core components, including its Darkfield tech, which allows for accurate tracking even on surfaces like glass, the ability to connect the mouse to up to three computers at the same time via Logitech Flow, and a wide range of preset and customization button configs for apps like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, and more. In the couple days I've spent with the Anywhere 3, I've used it at my desk as well as on my couch, on my kitchen countertops and briefly on a glass side table in my living room and it's worked well in all of those environments. I haven't charged it once since it was taken out of the box due to the mouse's 70 day battery life. It also charges via USB-C, which is a solid perk for those who are sick of viewing old micro USB ports on newer devices. The former works via Bluetooth or the included integrated USB receiver, and the latter is for Bluetooth only.

Logitech MX Anywhere 3 is available in a universal version compatible with most operating systems including Chrome OS and Linux and a version optimized for macOS.
