The Theron Smart Mouse has a great shape and feel, so much so that even while being offered in the high gloss metal flake finish, even with hot sweaty hands, when we needed to lift the mouse, our hands never slipped and dropped the mouse. It travels well on just about every surface we tried it on, and has been a pleasure to use in gaming, and editing tasks. The design is solid, and all of the buttons feel solid and offer a firm switch to backup their actions. As far as the mouse and PC software is concerned, there is nothing to complain about, at all.
Our major gripe, and what truly killed this mouse for us, was just how lame the application is. Reading the pairing instructions allowed us to get this paired, but only after unplugging the mouse from the PC after the application was booted up on the phone. That wouldn't be so bad one time, but the reality is, that every time we turned on the application to track our gaming, we again have to unplug and plug the mouse back in for the application to even see the mouse to pair to it.
If that wasn't annoying enough, every time we used the application, after roughly 90 seconds of game play, the application either just craps itself and stops tracking progress, or the transmitter inside goes into some sort of power saving mode and is no longer sending stats. Either way, whichever the reason, it leaves the application dysfunctional and pretty much worthless to us, or anyone for that matter.
As much comfort as this mouse offers, as smooth as it travels, as cool as it looks, all of it is rather pointless in our opinion, as the entire reason for offering this version of the Theron lineup was due to the Bluetooth and statistical data. Being that none of that works, it really makes the Theron Smart Mouse flop right on its face, and to be honest, you should just save yourself from the frustrations we had, and opt for the vanilla Theron if this mouse has intrigued you, you will be much happier with the investment not causing you hours of frustration, and for what, a bit of e-peen bragging rights?

The Bottom Line: At least until the application gets some major updates, we would stay clear of the Theron Smart mouse.
