Leisure with LELO

I freely admit that I am one of the people who did or will get this massager simply because it was a LELO. I can honestly say that I love and enjoy almost all of my LELO toys. That being said, the Smart Wand, I can take it or leave it. It is a nice toy, but not an extraordinary toy and this leaves the door open for other manufacturers to do what LELO didn't. For more power, I would say to look elsewhere, the Smart wand just doesn't have it.

Use

The LELO Smart Wand in medium is marketed as a wand massager. What that means to the initiated is that, it's a lot easier to pass it off to those that don't know, as something for your sore muscles. It is generic looking enough that you could probably have this sitting on the table and no one would look twice at it. I fully expect to be in a department store one day and this will be on the shelf next to the vibrating massage chair covers or the foot massager that we get our mom for Mother's Day. This massager can massage sore necks, arms, legs and shoulders. It is also a great add on to "sexy time" with the hubs. You can massage your clitoris and labia area. It also feels nice on my nipples and they're not actually that sensitive nowadays.

This reviewer believes this would work well for beginners as well as advanced users, although advanced users may expect a lot more power from it. Because of how this massager looks, you could buy this toy for bridal showers, birthdays or even "just because" days. It is a rechargeable cordless wand, so it can be used just about anywhere that you feel comfortable using it, as long as you remember to fully charge it before you go.

Material / Texture

The Smart Wand is silicone and shiny plastic ( part of the handle). This LELO toy has a very silky, FDA-approved, body-safe silicone surface. It is non-porous and has a very slight smell, that you probably won't notice unless you put it right on your nose. LELO also states that it has an "enlarged flexibile tip to spread tension." The massager is seamless until you reach the handle, and then it is only on the edge of the shiny plastic part.

Design / Shape / Size

The Smart Wand is a small, albeit expensive looking wand. It is easy to hold and very lightweight. It has a slightly curved handle that seems to be made to fit around your hand, but just seems excessive to this reviewer. It may be that the curved design was simply another way for LELO wands to stand out from the competition. The one glitch that can be found with the design has to do with the handle. If you were to hold the wand as it is shown on the box, your hand would be curved around the shiny part of the handle. If you do this, it puts the controls out of the comfortable reach of your fingers. You could reach them and even press them, but it is very awkward to use it in this manner. It is better, at least for this reviewer, to place my hand in the curve of the handle.This puts my fingers exactly where they need to be and in a more comfortable hold.

I like the size of this wand, because it makes it easier for smaller hands to hold for longer periods of time. Beginners and advanced users alike will probably be very excited for the LELO Smart wands, in medium and large. It is a discreet toy because of its size and it even comes with a nice storage bag or box to use, depending on your preference. I would say that this toy is very suitable for travel, since it is rechargeable and has a satin bag to keep it out of sight, if needed.

Functions / Performance / Controls

To use your toy after charging, it must be unlocked. To lock/unlock, press and hold the (+) and (-) buttons for 5 seconds. The Smart Wand also has a memory function. When you turn it off and then turn it back on, it will operate in the last setting it was in (Standard or SenseTouch mode). Most of the vibrations are felt on the head of the massager, with a very slight tremor that can be felt throughout the handle. The controls, located midway down the handle, are a (+), (-) and (). The plus increases the vibration level from low-low to high-high. I describe them that way because you can cycle through by pressing and holding the button, which will take you to the highest setting. You can also press and release the button until you get to the level that is enjoyable to you. If you press and release you get; low-low, low-medium, low-high, medium, high-low and high-high. Pressing the () button, will cycle through the different patterns (there are 7) and if you hold the button down it takes you to the touch mode. In touch mode, there is a constant slight vibration, that changes to high, when you put pressure on the wand head. You will know that you are in touch mode because after holding down the button for 3-5 seconds, all three buttons will flash a few times. You turn off the touch mode in the same manner. Since this reviewer is not one who enjoys the different patterns, the patterns are what is not so great about this toy for me. The touch mode is one that I might enjoy after using this massager for a bit, but honestly when I use a massager, I go from low to high, and that's it for me. The controls are very easy to use ( just make sure to read the directions before using) and they are convenient when I put my hand around the middle of the handle. It is not particularly noisy, but if you are in the room while it is on, you will be able to hear it. LELO says that this toy is waterproof, but with the exposed charging port I am hesitant to try it. It is not a big deal for me since I tend to use most of my toys in my bedroom.

Care and Maintenance

The Smart wand is a very easy toy to take care of. There are some simple things that are pretty universal when it comes to silicone. DO NOT use anything other than water based lubricants. Yes, there are probably some silicone toys that can be used with something other than water based lube, but do you really want to take the chance and use the wrong things together? I would not. Using lubes other than water based with silicone toys has a tendency to degrade the material, and as expensive as this toy was, I am not taking that chance. To clean, I use antibacterial soap and warm water, toy cleaner or toy wipes.
The picture below is a list of LELO's dos and do nots for this massager.

Do
*Apply cleaning solution directly to silicone.
*Ensure that interface is unlocked before first use.
* Charge unit monthly.

Do Not
*Do Not scrub with rough or scouring materials.
*Do Not boil to clean.
*Do Not store in direct sunlight.
*Do Not clean with alcohol or silicone-based solutions.
*Do Not use when plugged in and charging.

Packaging

The Smart wand comes packaged in a thin, white cardboard box. Inside the box is a much sturdier white box that contains your massager, manual, warranty, charger and satin pouch. The inner box is very suitable for storage. The "bed" that the wand lies in seems to be some type of Styrofoam glued to a piece of cardboard, that in turn is glued to the outer box. To get the pouch and other items out, you will have to shake them out into your hand. The way that this is packaged would make it a very nice gift, if you chose to give one of these to someone.

Personal comments

Being that I have not used a ton of wands, I can't say that this would be better than everything else out there. After using this, I still prefer my Hitachi, but this comes in at a very close second with the ones that I do own ( Hitachi, Wanachi, Infrared and now the Smart wand). If the Smart wand had more power, it would definitely beat my Hitachi, hands down. I am hoping that the Smart Wand in large, will have a significant power increase.

Experience

I guess I would say, that although I am not disappointed, it could have been better. For me, this toy is not a "finisher". A "finisher" would be a toy that I could use from start to finish and it would get me off almost every time. I don't see that happening with this toy. It is a very nice toy, but I wonder how much better it would have been had they stepped away from the SenseMotion/SenseTouch drawing board and just attempted to make a really powerful wand. On my car, I like all of the bells and whistles. With my sex toys, I want something where I can get in, get the job done and get out. I'm a pretty simple gal with simple tastes.

    Thanks for sharing! I didn't realize the head was flexible. My mystic wand is also flexible, so I guess I will pass for now.

    Thanks for your review. I'm torn about this. I hate the way most massagers look as I care about appearance and I think this one looks nice, but not powerful enough.

    Thank you for this review. I wanted it because it was a Lelo, a bit smaller than the Hitachi, and because they say it is waterproof. I am glad you said it was not a powerhouse toy.
