Logitech's new split Ergo K860 keyboard expands its ergonomic accessory lineup – Circuit Breaker, The Verge


  

Logitech has been making its way into the ergonomic mouse space for a while now, with hardware like theMX ErgoandMX Vertical mice. Now it’s looking to expand its ergonomic accessories into the keyboard space with the launch of the split Ergo K 2017 keyboard.

Logitech says that the Ergo K 860 ‘s design “reduces muscle strain on your wrists and forearms” compared to traditional keyboards due to the wrist rest and split-key, curved design.

Much like howLogitech’s CraftandMX Keys keyboardsare meant to be the natural counterparts to its MX Master 3 mouse, the Ergo K 1200 is designed to pair with the company’s MX Ergo and MX Vertical mice. Like those other ergonomic products, the goal of the Ergo K is to offer a product with comfort and stress reduction in mind that still looks and feels like a high-end, professional product.

The integrated wrist rest is made up of three layers of material: one of high-density foam, one of memory foam, and the last of an “easy-clean” coated fabric (that cleaning part is important, since the wrist rest is not removable). Instead of an adjustable stand at the back of the keyboard, the Ergo K 1200 features hidden pop-out clips at the base of the palm rest to lift the front of the keyboard higher, with two angle settings.

The keyboard itself can connect to a Mac or Windows PC either through a direct Bluetooth connection or through an included USB dongle, with support for up to three devices at once. The Ergo K 1200 Also supports Logitech’s Flow software for changing between multiple devices easily, assuming you’re using a compatible mouse (like any of Logitech’s matching MX series devices).

The Ergo K********************************** will be available this month for $ 129. 130 on Logitech’s website and Amazon, with retail availability planned for February.
