You probably spend a lot of time in front of the computer and don’t even notice that you have improperly positioned keyboards, monitors, and even your hand on your mouse. These bad habits can bring you more serious problems in the future. So today we bring you a review of the Logitech Lift, a mouse with a vertical design that allows you to maintain continuous comfort.
If you’re trying to escape wrist pain, check out this Logitech machine.
The Logitech Lift, available for around €79.99, in very eye-catching colors and with a modern style, feels like you're shaking hands.
One of the few downsides of this upright mouse is that it is not resistant to hand sweat, as half of the mouse is made of rubber, so it acts as a binding agent for skin grease. However, it's something that cleans up easily and Logitech has a helpful page on cleaning your peripherals.

What does the Logitech Lift look like?
design and colors
The Logitech Lift is one of Logitech's MX Anywhere 3 brothers, so it comes from solid stock. The Lift is quite small, making it more comfortable for smaller hands (Logitech has a size finder for mice). It also comes in a spectrum of colors, including pink, white, and black. There is also a specific model for lefties, although this only exists in white.
this mouse has silent and smooth buttons when you press them, which is perfect for their ergonomic nature. It has the two buttons common to a mouse, a "scroll wheel", a button that you can program to do whatever you want, two pre-programmed thumb buttons like forward and back, a button under it to choose the machine where the want to use, and finally the On/Off one.
Since it is a vertical mouse, it is in the index and thumb that you will find the most concentrated movements, instead of turning your wrist left and right, as you would with a normal mouse. It looks like you're doing a painting on a boardyour rug.
It will probably take some time to get used to this type of mouse since, as it is vertical, it conveys a very different sensation from what you are used to having. But after a while you will start to feel more comfortable and you will notice that the fatigue in your wrist disappears.
The Logitech Lift works best with small, subtle movements, and every little twist of the wrist immediately translates to the screen. Therefore, it is not advisable for games and other activities that require sudden movements.
Software to enhance your experience: Logi Options+
The Logi Options+ software has a super accessible interface, which makes it easy to know where to click to fully customize the mouse to your liking. This software allows you to add more devices to your collection and customize them individually.
In each of them, you can define an action for each button. These actions include Paste, Volume Up, Redo, Open an application, Open a folder, among other 45 available.
Furthermore, you can add applications like Google Chrome, for example, to choose mouse shortcuts that are activated when you are using them.
This software also has a feature called "Easy-Switch" that allows you to pair up to 3 computers and "jump" between them using the same mouse.
It's a very well done and effective app, so it won't be a problem to adapt Lift to your personal taste.
Very positive overall for the Logitech Lift
Logitech promises up to 2 years of battery life on an AA battery for the Lift. This mouse offers Bluetooth connectivity, and you can switch between three different computers or tablets.
While larger hands have a more challenging time getting used to the Lift, the act of moving your arm around the desk to control your computer will take a lot of pain and pressure off your wrist.
So don't make you regret not starting to choose the most comfortable one sooner. Also, there's sure to be a color that matches the rest of the things that are in your setup.
