What you need in a mouse can vary based on what you’re trying to do with it. We’ve selected the best options for general users, for mobile workers, for gamers, for those who need some ergonomic comfort, and those looking for a deal. Logitech features heavily in the list below—they’re hard to beat in terms of value and quality in a market they’ve been in for decades.
- Use: What are you trying to do with your Bluetooth mouse? Is it an everyday workhorse, a gaming controller, a travel mouse to stick in your bag, or something else? No matter what you’re trying to do, there’s an optimal Bluetooth mouse for your purposes.
- DPI: This specification refers to the “dots per inch” that your cursor travels when you move your mouse. This is important because bigger screens will require you to move your mouse farther. The best Bluetooth mice have adjustable DPI settings, so you remain in control of your cursor’s speed.
- Multiple computers: Bluetooth mice are great because they don’t have to be tethered to a single machine. You can use them across two or more computers. Make sure the Bluetooth mouse you buy can pair with as many machines as you need and how easily you can switch between devices.
- Buttons: We’re well past the days of all mice having two buttons and a scroll wheel. Today’s mice often come equipped with multiple buttons that you can customize to your needs and workflow.
- Ergonomics: The repeated motion of using a mouse and clicking its buttons all day can lead to discomfort and even injured hands. A good Bluetooth mouse is designed to keep your hand comfortable all day and minimize the chance of conditions like carpel tunnel developing.
- Battery: Bluetooth mice are wireless by nature, so you won’t have a constant connection to your machine to keep yours powered up. Check if the Bluetooth mouse you choose uses wired recharging, wireless charging, or disposable batteries.
- Price: The best mice don’t always come with a high price tag. And even budget-tier models can deliver a lot of value for the price.
- ✓ Three ways of connecting
- ✓ Comfortable
- ✓ Supports fast switching across devices
- ✗ Not compatible with iOS
The Triathlon M720 isn’t Logitech’s top-of-the-line mouse, but it gets the nod above the bigger, more expensive MX Master series for general users. Why? Because the M720 is simpler and more focused on usability, while maintaining almost all of the advanced features of the fancier model. In addition to a comfy rubber-wrapped shape, the mouse uses Logitech’s hyper-fast scroll wheel, Flow compatibility for controlling multiple machines at once, and the software allows for custom key binds and gesture controls for the big thumb buttons.
The M720 also supports fast switching between up to three computers or mobile devices using either Bluetooth or the included wireless USB dongle, which can be activated without turning the mouse upside down, as is the case on the MX Master. A quoted two-year life on a single AA battery is a fair trade for the more expensive mouse’s secondary scroll wheel and more advanced laser, and with a street price of around $40, it’s a great value to boot.

If money’s tight and you need a new mouse today, or you just prefer being frugal with your technology purchases, the TECKNET Bluetooth Wireless Mouse is a great choice. Its name may sound ultra generic, but it perfectly describes the device.
It’s a simple Bluetooth mouse with all the requisite components: two central buttons, two side buttons, and a scroll wheel. You can pair this mouse with up to three devices across the Windows, Android, Linux, and macOS platforms. It also has three adjustable DPI levels: 1000, 1600, and 2400, and it’s easy to switch between the three.
The TECKNET Bluetooth Wireless Mouse sports an ergonomic design that makes it comfortably fits almost anyone’s hand. Plus, it’s been tested for over 10 million clicks, so you know it will go the distance with you. And you’ll never have to recharge it because it’s powered by a disposable AA battery that should last you over a year before you have to change it.

Bluetooth is generally shunned for gaming unless there’s no other option, but if you need it for your specific setup, there’s no better pick than the Dark Core RGB Pro from Corsair. This mouse features enough buttons to adequately serve both shooter and strategy games, on-the-fly adjustment for the 18,000-DPI sensor, and interchangeable magnetic attachments to adapt to your grip style.
The mouse includes a conventional RF dongle with super-low wireless latency in addition to standard Bluetooth, but you’ll lose the fast connection on the latter. You can also use it with a direct USB connection while charging. For a more high-tech approach, spring for the upgraded “SE” model and pair it with the MM800 mousepad for an enhanced gaming performance.
For serious gamers, custom button programming can be paired with per-game profiles or saved directly to the mouse’s internal memory for quickly switching between multiple PCs. Oh, and because it’s a modern gaming mouse, it also includes multiple points of RGB lighting.
- ✓ Designed for comfort and safety
- ✓ Lots of programmable buttons
- ✓ Use with multiple machines
- ✗ Pricey
Ergonomic vertical mice are hard to find with a Bluetooth connection, so if you need an ergonomic solution, we recommend Logitech’s MX ERGO trackball (which is also our best pick in its own category). It includes the same RF-and-Bluetooth combo as the M720 Triathlon above, complete with Flow support for simultaneously using multiple machines.
The package also comes with an included base for a 20-degree tilt, if that’s your jam. The scroll wheel includes a speed mode, and the extra programmable buttons can handle plenty of advanced features via the Logitech software driver. The MX ERGO’s big body is maximized for comfort rather than mobility, but its rechargeable battery and quick device swapping buttons mean you can make it work if you insist.

Logitech's top-of-the-line trackball is far and away the best on the market for most people.

- ✓ Tracks on glass surfaces
- ✓ Rechargeable battery

The MX Anywhere 2S squeezes all of Logitech’s high-end features down into a tiny mouse about the size of a deck of cards, ideal for fitting into a laptop bag or even a pocket. Though it’s small, the rounded shape doesn’t sacrifice comfort or try to overdo it with touch-based buttons, like some competing models. It includes Bluetooth support and an RF USB dongle, as well as quick swapping capability between three different computers or mobile devices. Though there’s only one scroll wheel due to the small size, the design includes both fast scrolling and horizontal scrolling.
Installing Logitech’s software opens up custom key binding and the Flow program that allows users to control multiple Mac or PC machines at once. The MX Anywhere 2S has mobile-friendly rechargeable battery, but what makes it better than similar options is the proprietary “Darkfield” laser sensor that can track even on a glass surface—very handy when you can’t always pick the best spot to sit down and work. The mouse comes in multiple color variants, and can often be found for under $60 retail, which is a bargain considering all of the tech hiding inside the modest frame.
