The mouse tested on this site was the wireless Logitech MX Master 2S mouse.

You can also adjust the speed at which the mouse pointer moves under the page with the additional touch settings or specify whether the menu should always be displayed.

It’s worth noting that starting with iOS 13, you can also use the mouse on iPhone, which should be suitable for users in colder winter areas, such as when wearing gloves.
