We were sent this Warm Mouse which is made by WarmMe, the first thing that I noticed when I saw the device was how large it was. Then again I work on a laptop all day so I am used to a notebook size mouse. So let’s unpack the device and see what it is like.
The first thing I notice is how light it is, I like a mouse with a bit of weight as it gives it a feeling of quality. The WarmMe Mouse is not about that, it is designed if you work in a cold office or warehouse and if you suffer from a number of things. These include Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, DeQuervain’s, Poor Circulation, Raynaud’s, RSI or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Tendonitis.
I have plugged the Mouse into my USB port and now have to wait, the device takes about 3 minutes to warm up, and will reach its maximum temperature in 20 minutes. Remember when you plug the WarmMe Mouse in, that you need to press the power button so that it starts to warm up.
The mouse is now up to temperature and I have only had it in my hands for 30 seconds, I do not like the feeling as I am in a warm room and my hands are warm most of the time anyway. I decide to call my father round as he suffers with cold hands.
I let him have a go with the mouse, and he loves the warm feeling, he said that he feels more in control of the mouse as his hands are now nice and warm. He did say that there was one problem, that he can’t use two of them at once.
When I tried to use the mouse I was not happy with the shape of the device, as the design is very basic. I like a mouse like my Logitech which has a lovely feel and slopes down towards the front. My father said that he preferred the shape of the WarmMe Mouse, he pointed out that his hands are larger than mine, so he prefers a mouse with a simple design.
