When i've tried to pair it with standard BT receiver i've got different errors like asking for pin or confirmation or even timeouts. Basically it's impossible to connect this mouse. It's more like Microsoft specific problem than general. So, avoid Microsoft BT devices.
Yeah, I feel your pain: similar to the experience I had with Logitech K380. During the pairing process with a Logitech BT Keyboard, the host device prompts a numeric code which you have to type in the keyboard and then press return. I did somehow (I don't remember how, many random tries) manage to pair only using Bluez5's bluetoothctl, but it wasn't stable (no reconnection at reboot).
Anyway I found my final (for some time
) configuration with a Logitech K780 keyboard and a M720 Mouse. They both support pairing to three distinct hosts (with a button for switching) and they support both BT4 LE and custom Logitech 2.4GHz protocol through their Unifying receiver dongle (which acts as an USB M+K and is included both with the M and K). So slot 1 of both K and M is paired to one Unifying dongle which goes into my gaming PC, the second dongle is paired to slot 2 and goes into MiSTer... Keyboard slot 3 is paired to my AppleTV and Mouse slot 3 is paired to my main laptop, both through BT4.
One M+K to rule them all...
