Logitech Pebble 2 Combo Review: the perfect pair

Logitech Pebble 2 Combo Review: the perfect pair

I must say, it makes all the difference when you actually set your desk up right. Getting the right tools for your trade seems all the more important now that some of us are stuck at our desks AND if TikTok trends are anything to go by, desk/office aesthetics are just as important as restocking your kitchen in aesthetically pleasing containers… Enter the Logitech Pebble 2 Combo!

We all need to feel comfortable while “at work” and so the office, your office at home or your working area ie your space, just needs to be as comfortable as possible, whether at work or at home.

But it’s not just about the looks – to paraphrase Humanyze.com, workplace design has undergone a rapid metamorphosis. This is due to the office no longer being solely a place of employment.

“The latest trends in workplace design aim to blend the functional and beautiful in new and exciting ways. This can help to improve employee engagement and productivity by optimizing focus, efficiency, and collaboration. Not only does a great office design influence how clients and employees perceive an organisation, but it can also help transform several business operations.”

Our performance can be negatively impacted by a poorly designed and disorganised workspace. A good office space is conducive to improved concentration, improved mental health, reduced stress levels and a feeling of ease and even stimulated creativity.

This is why I decided to elevate my desk space and got to take the Logitech Pebble 2 Combo for a test drive. Logitech has long been a trusted name in the world of computer accessories, and this latest offering lives up to the brand’s reputation for excellence.

The combo includes the Logitech Pebble keys 2 K380S keyboard and the Pebble mouse 2 M350S. It’s designed to provide a seamless and efficient experience.

Design and aesthetics

Let’s start with the aesthetics, because first impressions matter. The Logitech Pebble 2 Combo boasts a minimalist and sleek design that blends seamlessly into any workspace. The keyboard features low-profile scissor keys that not only look elegant but also offer a comfortable typing experience. Its ultra-slim profile complements the compact Pebble mouse, which is designed with a rounded shape for a natural and comfortable grip.

Both the keyboard and mouse come in a variety of stylish colours to suit your personal taste. Predictably, I got the pink/rose colour but whether you prefer the modern graphite or the timeless off-white, Logitech has got you covered. The minimalistic design and colour options make the Pebble 2 Combo not just a functional accessory but also an aesthetic upgrade to your workspace.

Performance and connectivity 

Logitech has always been known for delivering quality performance, and the Pebble 2 Combo is no exception. The Pebble keys 2 K380S keyboard offers a satisfying typing experience, thanks to its responsive scissor keys. The tactile feedback and near-silent keystrokes are perfect for both work and leisure, ensuring you can type away without disturbing those around you.

One of the standout features of this combo is its multi-device capabilities. The K380S keyboard can be paired with up to three devices simultaneously, allowing you to seamlessly switch between your computer, tablet, and smartphone with just a touch of a button. This feature is a game-changer for those who often juggle between multiple devices throughout the day.

The Pebble mouse 2 M350S features high-precision tracking, making it incredibly smooth and accurate for everyday tasks. Its silent clicks are a blessing during video conferences and late-night work sessions, ensuring a disturbance-free environment.

Battery Life 

As I’ve only just unboxed the Logitech Pebble 2 Combo, I can only repeat what Logitech claim here. Logitech, however is renowned for its exceptional battery life in its wireless devices, and I expect the Logitech Pebble 2 Combo will live up to this reputation.

The keyboard boasts an impressive 24-month battery life, while the mouse can last up to 18 months on a single AA battery. (My old Pebble mouse probably did more and I didn’t switch it off when I wasn’t using it – I know it’s naughty but I’m just not trained for that!) This means you can forget about constantly swapping out batteries or recharging your peripherals, allowing you to focus on what matters most.

Connectivity 

Setting up the combo was an absolute breeze. It’s compatible with Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, and even Android devices. I chose to connect the Pebble Combo to my mac via Bluetooth, reducing the need for additional dongles, but the mouse can be “plugged in” with a dongle if you prefer – it’s still wireless though.

With the Easy Switch feature though, you can seamlessly switch between different devices with just a push of the 1 or 2 or 3 button – that’s three devices you can type on without having to physically pick up a phone or a tablet – just connect and type.

Portability and convenience 

The Pebble 2 Combo is designed with portability in mind. Both the keyboard and mouse are incredibly lightweight, making them ideal for when on-the-go. The slim profile of the keyboard allows it to easily slip into a bag or backpack, and the mouse can be comfortably pocketed.
