pen tablet for editing (general question)

Hello

I’m considering switching from a mouse to a pen tablet such as the Wacom or Huion tablets for editing in Capture One software.

I have never used one before and I am confused about what is meant by the fact a pen has Tilt Recognition. +/- 60 in the specs I have seen.

What is Tilt Recognition?

Does this mean that tablets that do not have this feature need the pen to be kept vertical in order to function?

Or, does it mean that pens with this function display different effects when the pen is tilted.

I normal hold a pen at an angle, 30 or 40 degrees (I guess) so having to hold the pen vertically would defeat the purpose of using it. I can’t see it being very comfortable having to hold it vertical all the time.

Thanks
