    Peripheral Support
    1. Navigate to the Apple Icon
    2. Select System Preferences
    3. Click on the Bluetooth icon
    4. Turn off Bluetooth
    5. Press both side buttons and the DPI button to ensure that the mouse is in “pairing mode”
    6. Turn on Bluetooth
    7. Search for Razer Atheris
    8. Click on “Pair” in the Bluetooth menu to pair the device

    It turns out not reading the manual was my fatal flaw. I contacted Razer support and they guided me through how to pair a bluetooth Atheris on Mac. “press both side buttons and DPI button”. Now the mouse is working flawlessly on the Mac.

    With high resolution monitors, high DPI mouse is important as you can navigate the real estate much faster and accurately with high DPI mouse. The combination of high DPI, Bluetooth and 2.4Ghz option along with ergonomics of Razer mouse, this mouse can not be beaten by any other mouse. Only caveat is 350 hour battery life on Alkaline Batteries and that means a lot of AAs in the landfill. But it still is best performance option in the market. The joy of using a Razer mouse on Bluetooth on Mac is very satisfying.

    I will leave my idiocy below for others who can relate to it.
    ===

    Mac, Bluetooth does not work. I have brand new 2016 Mac Pro. When I try to connect over Bluetooth, it gyrates between connect and not connect state and end up in not connected. I bought this specifically for its bluetooth capability for Mac so it is a useless device for me now. With 2 USB-C, 2.4Ghz doggle is useless.

    Mouse itself is an excellent mouse. It has good weight for my style. Not too light not too heavy. Most of the weight comes from 2xAA batteries which is positioned in sharp V shape. Important stuff. All buttons click with light pressure which is important to me as I click a lot. Scroll wheel also feels light and clicky which is fine with me. I do not like heavy feel the wheel in some fancy mouse as it ends up being a drag on my finger in long run.

    2.4Ghz and Bluetooth combo allows a mouse sharing setup between your PC and MAC. Lousy PCs which still doesn’t even have a decent Bluetooth driver can use 2.4Ghz and use Bluetooth on Mac. and you can switch between them with a flick of a button on the mouse itself. Good concept and feature set listed convinced me this would have been a perfect mouse for it. Either Razer botched bluetooth implementation or they intentionally made it not work so you will have to use more expensive mouse.

    If Bluetooth connection, somehow, gets fixed, I will give this a 4 star. Its limited battery life really means this mouse can not be a main mouse. An auxiliary mouse does not deserve 5 star.

    Update : It skips on Mac. Utterly useless on Mac.

    Pros for me: Small mobile size, good for claw grip. No wire, so less drag and no possibility of a wire getting stuck up on something, and it does not drift when i let go of it (a problem when using a low drag mouse pad with a wired mouse). Perfect tracking. In 2.4 ghz mode, I did not perceive any more or less latency compared to using a wired mouse. Able to set DPI in increments of 100 in the software, and very wide range of DPIs. No software CD included, guided me to download installer when i plugged in the USB receiver. No restart required. Software is optional, can just use plug and play, but then can’t change DPI. I feel that the mouse is built well. Comes with 2 AA Energizer alkaline batteries in the box. When the connection does drop with 2.4 ghz receiver, it is only for a split second, and it recovers “lost” mouse movement, so you do not have to correct for the lost signal by repeating the same movements again. The new beta version of Razer Synapse that installs with this mouse is really clean and modern looking, instead of having the dated gamer aesthetic of the previous version.

    Cons for me: Kind of heavy with 2 AA batteries installed, have to overcome a lot of inertia and so is actually not so good for twitchy games in my opinion (but i can adjust to this). Rubber grips on sides are ironically slippery when hands are sweaty, more slippery than the textured plastic surface on the top of the mouse. Rubber also does not have longevity, it will get pretty gross and come apart over time. Connection is not too reliable with the 2.4 ghz receiver plugged in to my desktop under my desk, but i will get an extension cable to have it closer to the mouse. Razer Synapse software is a 100+ MB download with a lengthy install, not a serious problem in this present day of computing but it just seems way too large for something so basic (but it does manage settings for many other Razer products as well, not just this mouse). Requires you to make a Razer account, then to be online and to log in from the app, just to change DPI. That’s asinine.

    Other thoughts: I would have liked a built in rechargable lithium ion battery instead, for less weight and to not have to manage batteries. I would have preferred a textured plastic grip instead of rubber, because the rubber is more slippery than plastic when hands are sweaty.

    Avoid this one like the plague.

    The mouse itself is significantly smaller than other travel mice Iâ??ve used from Logitech and Microsoft; so much so that my hand starts cramping within a short time of use.

    The Bluetooth is glitchy when it does connect, and on my older HP it would not even connect at all.

    The USB dongle for it pulled apart completely the first time that I removed it from a system (as I was testing it on different ones). Finally got it back together enough to use but it is clearly not securely made and now I am wary of it coming apart again. Contacting Razer for a replacement proved fruitless.

    The battery cover being integrated with the buttons also concerns me, as the plastic appears rather flimsy.

    Overall? Avoid it like the plague and stick to companies that stand behind their products
