The Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s is a compact wireless mouse that succeeds the Logitech Pebble M350. It looks similar to its predecessor but now comes in several new color options. This model connects wirelessly via Bluetooth and supports pairing with one additional device for a total of three devices simultaneously. It also supports Logitech's newer BOLT USB receiver but doesn't include one in the box. Smaller changes include a higher maximum CPI (helpful if you use a high-resolution display) and expanded software features for app-specific profiles and compatibility with Logi Flow. You can customize the middle button to assign shortcuts for screenshots, gesture controls, emojis, etc.

Our Verdict

5.9 Work

The Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 is middling for desktop work use. Its shape and size make it very portable, so it's well-suited for use with laptops or other mobile devices but it's not particularly comfortable to use for long stretches. It has decent build quality but feels cheap and only has one programmable button. It also lacks more advanced productivity features, like a scroll wheel with free-scrolling or tilt inputs. That said, it connects wirelessly via Bluetooth and supports multi-device pairing with up to three devices simultaneously. It's also compatible with Logitech's BOLT USB receiver, though one isn't included in the box.

Pros
  • Compact, low-profile design makes it easy to carry and use on-the-go.
  • Connects wirelessly via Bluetooth with up to three devices simultaneously.
  • Very quiet buttons and scroll wheel.
Cons
  • Is compatible with, but doesn't include a LOGI BOLT USB receiver in the box.
  • No side buttons.
7.1 Video Games (FPS)

While the Logitech Pebble 2 isn't designed for FPS gaming, it could work in a pinch for very casual play. While it's lightweight, unfortunately, it's uncomfortable to use for longer periods, and its mouse feet don't glide smoothly on mousepads or desks. Additionally, it has a very low fixed polling rate, mediocre click latency, and sensor latency that isn't suitable for competitive play.

Pros
  • Lightweight.
Cons
  • Very low, fixed polling rate.
  • Click latency is mediocre; not suitable for fast-paced or competitive gaming.
  • Sensor latency is only adequate for casual gaming.
5.1 Video Games (MMO)

The Logitech Pebble 2 is inadequate for MMO gaming, but it isn't designed for this use. You can only reprogram the middle mouse button, and it lacks side buttons altogether. It has decent overall build quality but still feels cheaper than most dedicated MMO gaming mice. It has inadequate raw performance, with a low fixed polling rate and mediocre click latency.

Pros
Cons
  • Very low, fixed polling rate.
  • Click latency is mediocre; not suitable for fast-paced or competitive gaming.
  • Sensor latency is only adequate for casual gaming.
  • No side buttons.
5.8 Raw Performance

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s is available in four color options: Tonal Rose, Tonal White, Tonal Graphite, and Black. Note that not every color option may be available in your region. We bought and tested the Black color model.

This mouse is also available for purchase with the Logitech Pebble Keys 2 K380s keyboard in a bundle called the Logitech Pebble 2 Combo.

Compared To Other Mice

The Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s is the successor to the original Logitech Pebble M350; while it looks identical, it's now available in several new colors. It also has more software customizability and a higher CPI sensitivity and is now compatible with Logitech's BOLT USB receiver (though it doesn't include one in the box).

Its slim, minimalist design makes it very easy to carry around and use on the go, but it overall feels somewhat cheap and is less comfortable to use compared to some other options, like the Logitech M720 Triathlon or the Logitech MX Anywhere 3S. It also lacks features like programmable side buttons or a scroll wheel with free-scrolling or tilt inputs found on the higher-end offerings.

Logitech Pebble M350

The Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s is a successor to the original Logitech Pebble M350. The two mice look very similar but are available in different color options. Both mice connect via Bluetooth, but the original Pebble M350 is compatible with and includes Logitech's older Unifying USB receiver. The Pebble Mouse 2 M350s, on the other hand, can pair with one additional device via Bluetooth for up to a total of three simultaneous devices. It's also compatible with Logitech's newer BOLT receiver—though it doesn't include one in the box. The updated Pebble Mouse 2 also features several other minor changes, including a higher maximum CPI and expanded software functionality.

Logitech M240

The Logitech M240 and the Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s are basic wireless mice. Both are quite small and designed for portability. The M240 feels a bit sturdier and has a slightly more bulbous shape, while the Pebble Mouse 2 has a very slim, low-profile design, making it a bit easier to slip into bags or pockets.

Logitech Signature M650

The Logitech Signature M650 and the Logitech Pebble 2 Mouse M350s are wireless mice designed with portability in mind. The Signature M650 is a bit bigger but has a slightly more bulbous shape. It also has better build quality and side buttons, which the Pebble Mouse 2 lacks. Conversely, the Pebble Mouse 2 is a bit smaller and has a much slimmer, low-profile design, making it a slightly more portable option that slips more easily into pockets or bags.

Logitech M720 Triathlon

The Logitech M720 Triathlon and the Logitech Pebble Mouse 2 M350s are wireless mice. The M720 Triathlon is a more productivity-focused model. It has better build quality and a more comfortable ergonomic shape with a thumb rest. It also has more programmable buttons, a dedicated gesture button, and a scroll wheel with free-scrolling and tilt inputs. The Pebble Mouse 2, on the other hand, is much more basic. It's available in more color options and has a slim, low-profile shape designed to be easy to carry with you and slip into bags or pockets.

Note: There are small white flecks visible in the textured view of the 3D scan file. These aren't visible on the mouse out of the box but are from an aerosol spray we applied to get an accurate texture scan.

This spray doesn't affect the dimensional accuracy of the scan and only aims to represent the textured view as faithfully as possible.

This mouse is very portable thanks to its slim, low-profile design with rounded edges. There's also a compartment for storing a Logi BOLT USB receiver if you have one, but there isn't one included in the box.

Build Quality

This mouse feels decently well-built. It has a solid plastic body, but the plastic feels somewhat cheap, and the top cover feels relatively flimsy when you remove it. Logitech indicates on the product page that this mouse is made with a minimum of 58% recycled plastic.

There's no noticeable flexing or creaking when the top cover is in place and you're using the mouse as intended. However, there's a faint rattling sound if you shake the mouse.

The Logitech Pebble 2 is quite lightweight in its default configuration with an AA alkaline battery.

If the weight is a major concern for you, you can employ further weight optimization by using a separate AAA adapter with lithium AAA batteries, which is how we achieved the Lowest Weight result.

This mouse is quite small and has a slim, low-profile shape. It's not suitable for a conventional palm or claw grip but is fairly comfortable to use with a fingertip grip for small to large hands. However, it's not particularly comfortable to use for longer periods.

Logitech advertises this mouse has a battery life of up to 24 months with a single alkaline AA battery. Just note that this is highly dependent on how often you use your mouse.

Unlike the previous-generation Logitech Pebble M350, which connects wirelessly via Bluetooth but is also compatible with its included Logitech Unifying USB Receiver, this new model connects wirelessly with Bluetooth but is also compatible with Logitech's newer Logi BOLT USB receiver, though it doesn't include one in the box.

The CPI performance is adequate for everyday browsing, productivity, and casual gaming.

Logitech advertises the CPI range as 400-4000 CPI, but in the configuration software, you can't adjust the CPI in incremented steps. Instead, you use a percentage slider to adjust the CPI, and the CPI values aren't shown. Note that this is only an issue if you know you're used to using a specific CPI value on other mice, as you'll have to use trial and error to find a similar feeling setting on this mouse.

The Logitech M350s has a scroll wheel with a rubber surface that provides good grip. It doesn't take much force to operate and is very quiet. It also scrolls smoothly without any definition between steps.

This mouse has a software setting called Smooth Scrolling enabled by default. This setting aims to minimize the abrupt, jumpy visual movement from scrolling through documents or web pages that can cause eye strain for some people. Scrolling feels slightly less responsive and precise-feeling with this setting. However, you can turn it off in the configuration software.

The Logitech Pebble 2 M350s uses Logitech's Options+ software. This software is easy to navigate and allows you to change a range of expected settings, including pointer speed and scroll behavior. There's also a battery life indicator, and you can reprogram the middle button to perform a range of actions.

The last pointer speed and CPI settings you set are saved when you close the software. However, other settings, like custom middle mouse button actions, don't carry over to other computers without the Logi+ software and require the software to be open and running in the background.

While there's only a single global profile setting, you can add multiple app-specific software profiles among a range of popular applications.

You can also program what Logitech calls Smart Actions, which are simplified macros. You can create custom Smart Actions or choose from a list of premade templates.

Lastly, this mouse also supports Logi Flow, a software feature that automatically switches between computers when you move your mouse cursor to the edge of your screen, as well as copy and paste text, images, and files between computers. You can read more about this feature on Logitech's website here.
