7 Best Surface Pens & Surface Pen Alternatives for Surface Pro
Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus
Another Surface Pen alternative that works across different devices, the Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus is the best Surface Pen alternative you can buy.
The technology inside the stylus allows it to fully replace a Surface Pen or other devices with a stylus. It has a soft-touch triangular barrel that fits more comfortably in the hand than some other digital pens. Two side buttons for writing and erasing let you skip navigating app menus. A button on the top of the pen launches your favorite writing app. The Bambook Ink Smart Stylus has a pocket clip for securing it to things when you aren’t using it.
This is the only Surface Pen alternative that has a dedicated drawing app of its own. Called Bamboo Note, this app lets you drop in images with your notes and drawings on Windows 10. This pen also works with Windows Ink apps, like Sticky Notes and Sketch Pad.
The Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus costs $69.99 at Best Buy. It only comes in black. Wacom includes three replaceable tips with each Ink Smart Stylus.
