Logitech’s Newest Pro Wireless Mouse Has Already Proved Itself With the Overwatch League’s First Champions

Logitech has just announced its new G Pro Wireless mouse designed for gamers and office workers alike. To prove its worth, the mouse has already been used by the first Overwatch League champions.

The new G Pro Wireless mouse comes with what Logitech says is its most accurate sensor yet, the HERO 16K. This sensor is capable of tracking up to 16,000 dpi, at movement speeds up to 400 inches per second. That means it’s fast and accurate, so you can whip your arm across the desk and still land on exactly what you’re aiming at.

The mouse uses an ambidextrous design with detachable side buttons that you can transfer to either side, so you can use it comfortably with either your right or left hand. Logitech says it worked with over 50 gamers to design the mouse to fit the needs of heavy users.

That hard work paid off, earning a rousing endorsement from one of the Overwatch League’s top players, Profit. If you’re not familiar, the Overwatch League is Blizzard’s professional gaming league for team-based online shooter Overwatch. It’s a fast-paced game that requires a high level of environmental awareness, and the reflexes to respond quickly to threats coming at you from anywhere.

At this, Profit is one of the best. During the Overwatch League Grand Finals, he earned Most Valuable Player with stunning plays like this one, where he managed to take out nearly the entire enemy team while zipping backwards and forwards through time. He credited the G Pro Wireless with helping him earn his title, calling it “a god mouse.” It’s worth pointing out that Logitech has been sponsoring the London Spitfire team that Profit’s on for a while, so take the comments with a grain of salt. Still, you can see what the mouse can do in the right hands right there in the video. You know, if you can even keep up with Profit.

Logitech also claims that the mouse can last up to 48 hours on a single charge, at which point you can recharge it via USB or just use it on one of Logitech’s wireless charging mats. If you’re using it for gaming, then that’s probably more than enough, but as you might expect Logitech still designed the mouse for everyday work.

If you want to take a crack at this insanely accurate mouse, it’ll set you back $150. You can buy it now from Logitech’s website.
