Logitech claims that the mouse was both tested and approved by 'ergonomists'. It sports a comfort form that enables the design to fit a variety of hand shapes and designs, while there is a textured rubber surface and a thumb rest to help users have a solid and natural grip.
Under the hood, the Logitech MX Vertical has a 4,000 DPI high-precision sensor that is touted to result in up to four times fewer hand movements and reduce fatigue. The mouse also includes a cursor switch that lets you adjust the DPI sensitivity as per your requirements. Being a wireless mouse, there is a built-in rechargeable battery that is rated to last for up to four months on a full charge.
