If you don't have the Smart Wand yet, I would recommend that you strongly consider it. It is rare that I can find nothing wrong with a product but that is the case here. This massager is simply amazing and I can't imagine bothering to purchase a different one in any other brand.
Sleek, versatile strength and patterns, rechargeable, waterproof, silky smooth, doesn't attract lint
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Smart Wand is a sleek, sexy and innovative toy from Lelo. The Smart Wand is available in three colors (black, plum, and ivory) and two sizes (medium and large). The large size wand costs about 30% more and is also about 30% larger. All the color choices are rich and lovely, so you really can't go wrong there.

The intended uses for this product are sensual massage and sexual gratification. For both, it works very well. It is intended for external use only, meaning it is not insertable. It may be used all over the body, including the back, neck, shoulders, thighs, butt, nipples, penis, testicles, and clitoris.

The Smart Wand is for both beginners and advanced users due to the wide range of vibration intensities to choose from. This particular toy is also equipped with Lelo's patent pending "sensetouch" setting, allowing the user to control the strength of vibrations by using pressure rather than the control pad. This setting will allow for wonderful, more natural deep tissue massage as well as a build up to an intense orgasm.

Since the Smart Wand is rechargeable, waterproof and wireless, it can go anywhere with you. Additionally, it offers a certain level of discreetness, since it is shaped as a traditional massager.

Material / Texture

Of course, with smart being right in the name, one would expect nothing less than the Smart Wand's high-quality silicone material. The texture is a smooth, velvety matte. There is very little to no drag; you'll find the Smart Wand glides effortlessly across the skin. This allows it to be used all by itself or if you desire, with your favorite massage oils and lotions.

Silicone rates a ten out of ten on Eden's safety scale. This is largely due to the fact that it is non-porous, which allows it to be completely disinfected. This, in turn, makes it a great toy for sharing, as long as any body fluids are washed off between partners.

There is a light scent to this toy but I do not find it at all unpleasant. There is no adverse taste.

    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The large Smart Wand is 12" in length. Of that, the handle is 9", the head is 2", and the flexible neck between the two is 1". The amount of flexibility in the head is about 1/4" in any direction, which allows for better maneuverability. The diameter of the head is 2 1/2" and the circumference is 7 1/2". The wand weighs 14 oz., which is just a little less than 1 lb.

The handle of the wand curves ergonomically for a more comfortable grip. The gold metallic panel on the inner curve of the handle makes it easier to grip during use. The weight is more top heavy on this toy, which makes it easiest to use with the handle angled up while the vibrating head is down on the body.

I found that the size and shape was well designed for solo use as well as partner use. The length of the wand is large enough so that I can access my entire back for a self-massage. The length is also perfect for keeping the wand out of the way as a couple's sex toy.

This toy is more discreet than many since it is non-phallic and in the shape of a massager. This makes it well suited for travel as well, as it will not be a huge embarrassment if your bags are looked through at the airport security check. Additionally, the Smart Wand has a locking feature so it will not turn on during traveling. It also comes with its own travel bag. It is a little bit on the bulky side if you aren't packing an entire suitcase though.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

According to the Lelo instruction manual, when you first receive your Smart Wand, it will require a two hour charge. This is true for both the initial and subsequent charges. The power will then last up two hours, depending on the strength and functions chosen. The charge will hold for up to 90 days.

The Lelo Smart Wand may be used in two ways: the traditional key pad approach and the patent-pending "sensetouch" function. The keypad has three buttons. The top button is marked with a "+", the middle button has two arrows to indicate cycle, and the bottom button has a "-". As you may have guessed, this toy is pretty user friendly. To turn it on, simply press the "+" button. Press it additional times to reach your desired intensity. Likewise, press the "-" to decrease intensity. Once you are down to the lowest intensity, an additional press of the "-" will turn the wand off. The cycle button will allow you to choose from the eight different functions. When the toy is turned off, it will again begin at the first function.

I will do my best to describe the functions to you:
1.steady vibration
2.slow pulsing (2 pulses/1 second)
3.medium pulsing (4 pulses/1 second) pulsing (8 pulses/1 second)
5.slow surge (bursts of lower to high intensity)
6.roller coaster (bursts of lower to higher, then back to lower intensity)
7.medium surge (similar to medium pulsing, but more of a steady vibration than an off/on effect)
8.random mix (if there's a pattern to this, I haven't cracked's like randomly switching between slower and faster intensities)

Now, there is also the "sensetouch" function. In order to use it, you must hold the cycle button for 3-5 seconds until you see it flash. The wand will then sense when the head is pressed against your body and increase strength as it is held there. It is set automatically to be at 100% strength, so use the "-" button if it is too intense. When the wand is removed from the body, it goes back to a lower speed. The theory behind this is that muscles are better stimulated during massage when there is a build up to a higher speed, as opposed to constantly receiving the same level of high speed. Holding the cycle button down again will switch the wand back from "sensetouch" into the keypad mode.

A few important notes on the "sensetouch":
1. it only uses steady vibrations, you cannot use the functions
2. it cannot be used with any wand attachments; the head of the wand must make direct contact with the skin
3. in "sensetouch" mode, the wand will automatically turn off after 1 minute of non-activity to conserve the battery and will need to be powered back on by pressing the "+" button again
4. if the wand is turned off in "sensetouch" mode, it will still be in "sensetouch" mode when turned back on; to switch off the "sensetouch", you must hold down the cycle button

This toy has a large range of intensity and noise. At the least, it has an intensity of 1 vroom and a noise level of 1 bee. At the most, it has an intensity level of 4 vrooms and a noise level of 3 bees.

Lastly, this toy comes complete with a locking feature for traveling. This feature may be accessed by holding the "+" and "-" simultaneously until the light goes off. To unlock, you repeat the action until the light goes back on.
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Rechargeable
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

This toy is simple to care for and maintain. It can be cleansed with an antibacterial hand soap, toy cleaner, or toy wipes. Since it is waterproof, there are no worries as to damaging it during cleansing. Afterwards, it may be dried off with a towel since it does not attract lint. The Smart Wand comes with its own lightly padded case to store it in. This will keep it out of direct sunlight and away from other silicone toys (preventing chemical reaction).

The Smart Wand may be used with any water-based lubricant or oil-based lubricant. Do not use it with a silicone-based however, as it will melt the silicone material.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Smart Wand is packaged quite attractively, as are all Lelo products. It would make a beautiful gift. The outer box has a picture of a woman with the smart wand. The inner box is a heavy white cardboard with Lelo printed on the top. Inside, the wand and the Lelo insignia pin are readily viewable. Under a flap beneath them is a compartment housing the charging cord, large storage pouch, manual, and warranty. The instruction manual is well put together and after a quick read, using the Smart Wand was a breeze for me.

    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Recyclable
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

Please note: All of the information used in this review were taken from the Lelo instruction manual accompanying the Smart Wand and my own personal experiences.


I was simply amazed by this product. Lelo really hit it out of the park with this one. I love that you are able to adjust both the functions and strength separately, allowing you to mix and match. This way, you can be as gentle (or as tough) on all your aches and sore spots as you want. It works well with a partner but is also long enough to be used solo. Since it is waterproof, it can even be added into a hot shower.

As a bonus, it is also incredible for sexual pleasure. Sometimes, I keep it low and steady to let the anticipation build up and other times, I use it on a higher intensity and have a quickie. However, the function that really drives me crazy is the last one, where it is seemingly random when the intensity lowers and increases. Not being able to anticipate what's coming next adds a whole new level of pleasure. When with my partner, I find it works easiest using it in the doggy style position or with me flat on my back with my legs straight up against him. This keeps it from getting in the way, while still allowing me access to stimulate myself. He loves it as well, saying the strong vibrations carry through me into him.
Follow-up commentary
This vibrator is still just the most amazing thing. I've owned it for three years now and it still functions perfectly. This is absolutely my go to toy. I hardly remember that I even own any other vibrators.

    Wow ! This is one of the best reviews and videos I have seen on EF. Excellent job. How long does a charge last on this ? I'm glad to see it is still working after 3+ yrs. Many rechargeables peter out.
