Thermaltake’s New Gaming Mouse Tracks Usage
If you’re into PC gaming, you likely have a gaming mouse and maybe even a mechanical keyboard. The gaming mouse is what will make or break your performance. A new mouse from Thermaltake looks o help you improve your performance by tracking your usage. The Ventus X Plus from Thermaltake tracks mouse speed, the distance traveled, actions per minute (APM), clicks, and liftoffs (when you lift the mouse up off the table to move the mouse without moving the cursor). The Ventus X Plus is the equivalent to a Fitbit but focused on how you use your mouse.
Those stats are synced with the eSports Plus+ Professional mobile or desktop app through Bluetooth. In the app, you can review your performance, compare your mouse style to professionals, and challenge your friends to click duals. Beyond the stats, the apps won’t help you improve your mouse style, or help you better your gaming style.
Thermaltake’s gaming mouse is the Fitbit for gaming mouses
Thermaltake’s mouse is wired to the PC, but the Bluetooth is still used to sync the stats about the mouse. The data is neat to look at, but otherwise, it’s not very useful. It’s a lot like counting your steps; you see your steps taken but not how it affects your health. You’ll see your clicks and mouse movements, but you won’t see how it affects your gameplay.
The mouse is $49.99, no more than other gaming mouses on the market. If you’re into seeing what you do on a daily basis, then buying this mouse won’t break the bank. The mouse won’t improve your gameplay or mine, but I can at least feel good when I see I click my mouse more than some professional gamers.
