Logitech Ergo K860: Microsoft Gets Competition In The Split Ergonomic Keyboard Space

We are big fans of Microsoft's Surface Ergonomic Keyboard, whose separate design and unique ergonomics make typing easy. Although the Redmond guys have single-handedly owned this category over the past few years, it seems like someone is about to challenge them in the future. In particular, we are talking about the Logitech Ergo K860.
A separable ergonomic keyboard, similar to the Microsoft keyboard, claims to provide "a better position, less stress and more support." Seriously, all this with a simple keyboard. In addition, they receive specific support: 54% more support for the wrist, 21% less muscle activity during the trapezoid and 25% less bend in the wrist compared to using traditional keyboards. Use this with the advanced Logitech ergonomic mouse a couple of years ago, and your desk should have the most convenient peripherals in the entire office.
Logitech Ergo K860 uses a fixed-split design that divides the keyboard into two corner halves, creating a triangle-shaped space right in the middle. So, yes, you basically make the Illuminati symbol with your fingers while you type, which we believe could cause ergonomic benefits for the keyboard. You know ... just talking. It has a curved keyframe that puts your hands, wrists, fingers, and even your traps in a more natural position, causing less strain on your small joints and muscles even for long periods of typing.
A built-in cushioned wrist rest at the bottom of the keyboard places the forearms just above the keyboard, providing the necessary support, while minimizing the need to bend your wrists to reach all the keys. The legs on the armrests allow you to raise its height by another four or seven degrees, which allows you to find the ideal typing angle, depending on where you are sitting or in a standing position. By the way, the armrest combines 4 mm foam with a memory effect for individual support and 2 mm foam with a high density to provide the necessary rigidity, and then wraps it in the outer layer of a knitted fabric, which is durable, resistant to dirt and smooth to touch.
The Logitech Ergo K860 is a full-sized keyboard equipped with a dedicated numeric keypad, cursor keys, and special keys, so if you are currently using a regular full-size keyboard in your work, you should have no problem navigating to this thing, the only thing that really different is the form. The company even claims that the unique form should not compromise either in print speed or in accuracy, as it is strictly designed to influence print ergonomics.
By the way, this is a Bluetooth 5.0 keyboard, so you can easily connect it to any Windows or Mac OS equipped with Bluetooth, although it is also equipped with a 2.4 GHz key if you use it on your desktop without an integrated Bluetooth chip. Like many new Logitech peripherals, it can simultaneously connect to three separate devices and switch between them, so you can switch between three different laptops using the same keyboard and mouse. It is powered by two AAA batteries.

Logitech Ergo K860 costs $ 129.99.
