    Bluetooth mouse with swipe? recommendations

    Hi, I am looking for a Bluetooth Mouse for my laptop (Lenovo Thinkbook 14 G2 AMD) running Ubuntu 21.04
    I've used Apple Mac for the past 20 years, so I am inexperienced with anything outside of that ecosystem, but I am enjoying the embrace of Linux.

    I would like advice on what mouse to buy, given the following requirements. (in order of importance)

    1) It must be Bluetooth & not wireless USB dongle. (BT v5 should be supported on laptop, v3 device is confirmed to work)
    2) I'd like it to support Swipe (left/right), as well as the obvious scroll, left click, right click. (I don't care about middle click or other buttons, with or without is fine)
    3) I'd prefer a simple design, none-ergonomic form, just a simple oval shaped mouse is best.

    There are so many choices & most don't mention Linux, so I just want, really, some advice on a basic BT mouse that will work. Thanks!

    I do not use a bluetooth mouse, but I have used logitech mice over the years without any issues.
