The Logitech Touch Mouse m600 supports gestures for scrolling and swiping it has no buttons on top of the mouse. It uses a Unifying receiver with 2.4 GHz technology for connectivity. The pair of batteries are good for six months of runtime according to Logitech and it uses advanced optical laser technology. The mouse is available now for $69.99.
The first time I heard about the Logitech Touch Mouse m600 I thought it sounded interesting. I expected the right and left click functions to be touch-based with no real buttons. The mouse has no buttons, but the entire top shiny black section of the mouse clicks like a mouse button would function and are not gesture-based.
What is gesture-based is the scrolling up and down and left and right. It feels strange not having a mouse wheel under the finger as you scroll and obviously, you don't get the same tactile feedback, but scrolling is easy to do. The mouse is very attractive with the glossy black surface with some silver designs. It looks very high tech with the smooth river stone shaped outside and is very comfortable in the hand.
The thing that would prevent me from using the Logitech Touch Mouse m600 all the time is that it lacks buttons on the side for scrolling webpages forwarded back. I can't live without the side buttons, but many people won't have a problem with that. Logitech does offer software called Flow Scroll that allows you to tweak scrolling action on the mouse to your liking.
Logitech isn't clear on the sensitivity for the mouse, but it feels like about 1200 dpi to me. The mouse is plenty sensitive for use on my large computer monitor, though I do prefer even higher sensitivity. If you can get by with your average computer mouse is far sensitivity goes, you will be able to use the Logitech Touch Mouse m600 without any issues.
If you live without side buttons and the physical feel of the scroll wheel under your finger, there's little to dislike with the Logitech Touch Mouse m600.
