LELO Smart Wand 2 review: the multipurpose wand that’s worth the investment

We put this new and improved version of the original LELO Smart Wand through its paces. Find out what our tester thinks!

LELO Smart Wand 2

In the world of wand massagers and vibrators, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is one of the most luxurious and is often recommended by Mumsnet users on our Talk boards. From my experience, it’s easy to see why. This particular wand vibrator is suitable for use on any part of the body, but it is specifically designed to target the vulva for complete stimulation of your most intense erogenous zone. 

Despite its higher price tag, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is a welcomed upgrade and would make a worthy investment to add to your collection if you’re a seasoned toy enthusiast. If you’re a beginner, maybe skip this one for now, though, and choose a beginner’s sex toy, instead? Personally, as someone who has been testing the top rated vibrators that Mumsnet users love over the last year, I made sure to test the LELO Smart Wand 2 in large thoroughly before writing this review. You’ll find everything there is to know about the massager, including how easy it is to use, handle, how it charges, its volume as well as its effectiveness when used underwater. 

If you’re looking for the best vibrator to add to your collection, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is a worthy contender and powerhouse. In need of some essentials, too? Don’t skip our guides to the best condoms and the best lube overall that Mumsnet users rate and love themselves.

LELO is definitely my preferred brand and this wand is my favourite toy. Its vibrations are strong and steady but never uncomfortably intense. It feels good to hold due to its ergonomic design and it looks great.

Our verdict

Out of the wand massagers and vibrators I’ve tested, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is the most luxurious of them all so far. It’s high-quality and is great for intimate and relaxation purposes during sex, play and massage. With a sleek design, the Smart Wand 2 is a great improvement of the original favourite from LELO, and is made with smooth silicone for a stylish finish. Personally, I love the black and gold colouring. 

The LELO Smart Wand 2 comes in two sizes: medium and large. I tested the large, and honestly, it is very large. Understandably so, however, when you consider that it can be used for body massages as well as for masturbation. 

Its standout feature though, is the Smart Silence technology, which means the vibrator only starts when in contact with the skin - meaning it’s discreet and won’t start until it’s already in place! It’s very quiet during use and it’s fully submersible and waterproof, making it versatile for use in different environments like the shower or in a hot tub. Although, I did find it meant the vibrations were slightly delayed a couple of times - but this didn’t make it any less effective overall.

It is pricey, though, I’ll admit, compared to similar products like other entries in our best wand massager roundup, including: the Self Love Massage Wand by Ann Summers, which is just £48, and the Unbound Ollie Wand Vibrator, which retails at £70. With that said, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is a well-crafted, powerful massager that offers innovative features that can be enjoyed beyond sex. It’s luxurious, strong and is a popular choice among Mumsnet users, and I can see why.

Final thoughts: There’s no denying that £180 is a huge amount to pay for a sex toy, but if you’re looking to splurge on something that will bring you pleasure, is multipurpose, and will stand the test of time, the Smart Wand 2 from LELO is a safe bet. Plus, it looks good and customers say the design feels like silk on the skin... Earning it a place in our best wand massagers roundup!

How we tested the LELO Smart Wand 2

  • Tested over six weeks

  • At home in bed and in the shower

  • Used solo and with partner (massage only)

To fully evaluate its features and performance, I followed the below testing process with the LELO Smart Wand 2. 

Firstly, I considered its physical design and build. It’s a stylish, modern, and sleek wand vibrator that is constructed well and the material is high quality. Despite being large in size, it’s not heavy and is very easy to handle. There are 10 vibration settings in total, and to ensure the Smart Silence technology works properly, it was tested both in and out of the duvet covers. Finally, not only did I test it during masturbation, but DH was open to trying it out with a full body massage.

LELO Smart Wand 2: what’s in the box?

  • LELO Smart Wand 2 wand massager

  • USB charging cable

  • Storage bag

  • Instruction guide

  • Personal moisturiser sample

The LELO Smart Wand 2 is the first vibrator I’ve tested that actually came with a sample of some lubrication to use during the first use of the massager. Which, in my opinion, was a nice touch!

How easy is it to set-up the LELO Smart Wand 2? 

To unbox, you simply need to remove the wand from its packaging and ensure all components are present - including the charging cable. As with most toys, it’s advised that you fully charge the LELO Smart Wand 2 before first use to ensure the battery lasts as long as possible - and the intensities remain as powerful as you need them to. 

Weirdly enough, the USB rechargeable cable needs to be plugged into the vibrator - however, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is indeed waterproof and submersible for bathtime fun. So, don’t worry! You’ll need a USB plug head of your own for charging. Plus, you will need access to a USB port, device or plug socket.

To turn on your LELO Smart Wand 2, you just need to press and hold the power button for a few seconds until vibrations begin and the indicator light turns on. To switch off, press and hold the same button to power down. The control buttons are used to adjust the settings, which help you to navigate through the ten vibration modes available. 

Since this wand massager from LELO includes Smart Silence technology, all you need to do is simply place the wand against your skin to activate the vibrations - it should start vibrating upon contact. Although, I find that sometimes there can be a few seconds delay so bear this in mind.

How does the LELO Smart Wand 2 look? 

Boasting a sleek design, I have to say that the LELO Smart Wand 2 is one of the more elegant wand massagers I’ve tested. Its design is sophisticated and modern, and features smooth lines and a minimalist aesthetic.

The wand is made of high-quality, body-safe silicone, and has a soft and luxurious feel to it. The device itself is curved for ergonomic handling - which I found useful - and the rounded head is designed to deliver targeted vibrations wherever placed. The control buttons are seamlessly integrated into the wand’s body, above the gold handle, maintaining its clean and stylish look. 

What is the LELO Smart Wand 2 like to use? 

Thanks to the wand’s ergonomic design, it’s comfortable to hold and manoeuvre for targeted use on various parts. In fact, its rounded design was very much appreciated as I targeted a tight spot between my shoulder blades one day that helped to relieve some discomfort. When used for clitoral stimulation, the ergonomic shape means it’s easy to grasp firmly while also reaching the buttons to change speed or vibration settings with just one hand. 

The upgraded interface makes it very simple to use and navigate between settings. The buttons are cleverly designed and slightly raised, meaning it’s easier to find the controls even in the dark.

The vibrations delivered vary between continuous rumbles to varied vibration patterns. The vibrations are strong and deep, and there are ten intensities to choose from to suit different preferences. The fact there is such a huge range is great in my opinion, too, as there’s more variation to a session instead of just slow and too fast. No matter what vibe you settle on, though, the noise level is relatively low and not distracting.

The Smart Silence technology, as I’ve mentioned, adds a discreet touch when using it. The wand only activates when in contact with your skin, so you can rest assured knowing it’ll only kick in once you’re in position and ready to go. 

As for the material, the silicone is smooth and pleasant against the skin, and it doesn't feel rough or rigid when used during intercourse. As I tested the large model, I did find it larger than expected - I suspect the medium size might be better for more precision. However, with the large means a wider surface area during use, so you can let the toy do all the work for you. 

Who does the LELO Smart Wand 2 suit best? 

For anyone wanting to invest in a top-quality body wand massager, the LELO Smart Wand 2 is a worthy addition to invest in. I tested the large model, and despite its size, it was precise when targeting the right areas. So, it would be of great benefit for anyone who requires clitoral stimulation for orgasm. 

If you’re new to sex toys, but only want to spend your money on one that can do everything, then the LELO Smart Wand 2 is a suitable choice. Not only can it be used for masturbation and during intercourse, but it is also big enough to tackle knots and pains all over the body. Plus, as it has 10 vibration settings, it’s a good toy to experiment and test with as a beginner, as you explore what speeds and intensities work for you.

Although, maybe avoid going straight for the maximum setting if you’re a beginner. 

LELO Smart Wand 2: how easy is it to clean? 

Very easily, actually! There’s not much room for error, really. Thanks to its waterproof design and silicone material, it’s easy to wash with a dedicated sex toy cleaner or simply with mild soap and warm water. 

I will say, though, that it can pick up lint and fluff quite easily if left out. So, make sure you have one of the best sex toy cleaners in stock to help you keep it fresh and ready to use when needed. And, make sure you store it in the provided storage bag! If not, our guide to the best sex toy storages might be helpful, too.
