    Logitech has revised its superb tiny travel mouse, the MX Anywhere 3S, to bring it in line with the larger MX Master 3S.

    The Anywhere 3’s form factor hasn’t altered, with the same low-profile design, soft-touch feel, and tiny controls that make the mouse easy to toss into a backpack pocket when you’re working on the move.

    The big upgrade here is that it uses the same 8K DPI sensor as the MX Master 3S, unlocking significantly more sensitivity for those who need it, especially on high resolution displays – and it still works on just about any surface, including glass.

    It also has the ‘Quiet Clicks’ function from its larger brother, which is one of those features that accomplishes exactly what it says on the tin. The trade-off is that Quiet Clicks are less, well, clicky, which is similar to switching from mechanical keyboards to laptop-style – some may never look back, while others may feel the mouse is lacking something.

    Finally, the Anywhere 3S is compatible with Logitech’s new Bolt wireless receiver, which provides a secure, low-latency connection. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the mouse supports Bluetooth and is clearly designed to roam between devices more freely, Logitech does not provide a Bolt receiver in the package.

    The new MX Keys S has also been upgraded to support Bolt. This full-size, illuminated keyboard with laptop-style keys is generally quite similar to the current MX Keys, which also ranks first in our best keyboard list.

    Logitech has merely adjusted the materials used in its construction and slightly updated the Fn key arrangement to include a dictation key, microphone mute, and emoji shortcut in addition to Bolt.

    Both new items are the first to include official support for Smart Actions, a new set of macro controls in the Logitech Options+ app – however they also function with any existing Options+-compatible products.

    Smart Actions, which finally launched after a public beta period, allow you to assign single keypresses to commands ranging from opening a string of different apps to pasting some predefined text or triggering specific key combos – for example, setting up a one-button morning routine to open all your work apps, or a shortcut that launches Photoshop and opens a new file immediately.

    The choice of potential effects is extensive, however it is currently constrained by the fact that keypress triggers are restricted to a few mouse buttons and the keyboard Fn row – though Logitech claims it is striving to increase those options.

    The MX Anywhere 3S costs $79/£89/€99, which is the same as its predecessor despite the substantial enhancements, while the Keys S costs $109/£109/€119. The keyboard is also available in a combo set with a palm rest and the bigger MX Master 3S mouse for $199/£199/€219 – a significant savings over purchasing each item individually.
