Taking it back to where it all started — the might wand vibrator! Since the first person discovered the magic potential of these “massagers,” brands everywhere have created their own versions.
Today we put two of the best head to head in the LELO Smart Wand vs We-Vibe Wand showdown!
Lelo Smart Wand 2
What Is the Lelo Smart Wand 2?
The Lelo Smart Wand 2 comes in two sizes — medium and large, but today, we are turning our attention to the large model. And boy is thing large, both in terms of size and power!
Lelo is known for its luxury sex toys, and the Smart Wand certainly lives up to that! Coated in luxuriously soft silicone, the wand features a curved handle and a wide round head.
The Smart Wand 2 boasts some strong, rumbly vibrations, and with 10 patterns, plus 10 intensities to choose from, the Lelo Smart Wand 2 gives you plenty of options to play with!
How Does It Perform?
The lower settings of the Lelo Smart Wand 2 are so rumbly that the whole thing turns into something of a bucking bronco, but once you get a good handle on it, those rumbly vibrations can really penetrate deeply for some intense stimulation.
The buttons make it easy to switch between the 10 intensities and power levels, but it can be easy to accidentally hit the patterns button and then you have to scroll all the way through the patterns to get back to steady vibrations.
The fact that it’s fully waterproof and rechargeable, as opposed to corded, makes it super practical. The curved handle is also a smart addition that makes it easier to use in a range of positions.
|Strong, rumbly vibrations||Can be loud|
|Curved handle for easy handling||Vibrations transfer to handle|
|Covered in silky soft silicone|
|Easy to clean|
What is the We-Vibe Wand?
The We-Vibe Wand is a silicone-covered, waterproof wand vibrator that houses We-Vibe’s on-brand powerful, rumbly vibrations. It is waterproof and rechargeable and comes with a range of extra features.
The Wand is compatible with We-Vibe’s WeConnect app, which opens up additional features, including customizable vibrations, and long-distance control, among others. The app also allows you to control the Smart Silence technology, which shuts off the power when the wand isn’t in contact with your body.
As well as using the app, you can control the vibration settings using the unique joystick control, which makes it easy to flick through the settings.
On top of that, the We-Vibe Wand comes with two stimulation heads — one that functions as a penis sleeve and one that creates a fluttering type of stimulation.
How Does It Perform?
Our tester put the We-Vibe Wand through its paces and was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the wonderfully rumbly vibrations and the quality of the toy overall.
They found it added some spice to long-distance sex sessions and also enjoyed using the different attachments solo and with a partner, making this a very versatile wand. They did, however, find there was a lag when using the toy long-distance, which could be improved.
Check out the full review of the We-Vibe Wand for our tester’s honest opinion.
Unfortunately, We-Vibe isn’t currently making the We-Vibe Wand anymore but check below for a suitably rumbly, powerful alternative, and we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for a new and improved version, hopefully, sometime soon!
|Intense, rumbly vibrations||Very heavy|
|Great range of settings||Slow app responsiveness|
|Comes with two attachments|
The Lovense Domi — A Great Alternative to the We-Vibe Wand
The Lovense Domi is a great alternative for anyone looking for a powerful, rumbly wand with app capabilities. And on the plus side, Lovense’s app tends to be a little more reliable than We-Vibes.
The Domi is a smaller wand vibrator but don’t let that fool you! It’s super powerful, so you’ll still get that knock-your-socks-off power you desire!
The smaller size makes it perfect for traveling and easier to slide between two bodies during partner sex.
LELO Smart Wand vs We-Vibe Wand — the Results
The Overall Score
The Lelo Smart Wand edged just slightly ahead of the We-Vibe wand overall, with 4.3/5 compared to the We-Vibe Wand’s 4.2 — there really wasn’t much in it! The Smart Wand is also slightly cheaper, but not by a lot. The only metric that We-Vibe came out on top for was quality.

Who Would I Recommend the Lelo Smart Wand 2 and We-Vibe Wand/ Lovense Domi To?
Seeing as the We-Vibe Wand is no longer available, at least for now anyway, we’ll switch it out for the Lovense Domi here!
The Lelo Smart Wand 2 Large is going to be better for anyone who wants a full-size wand, whereas the Domi is perfect if you want something a little smaller. The Domi is also slightly cheaper, as you would expect for something smaller.
The Domi is also going to be the number one choice if you are looking for an app-enabled wand that can also be used for long-distance partner play.
You should buy the Lelo Smart Wand 2 if you:
- Love a lot of power
- Enjoy broad, rumbly stimulation
- Need a fully waterproof wand
- Are willing to pay for a luxury product
You should buy the Lovense Domi if you:
- Prefer a smaller wand
- Want an app-enabled wand
- Want to use it for long-distance sex
- Enjoy powerful vibrations
Both wands deliver a rumble in the jungle, living up to the wand’s status as the most powerful type of hand-held vibrator. The Smart Wand keeps more to the traditional wand-style with a few tweaks, such as the curved handle, whereas the Domi gives a high-tech makeover to a mid-sized wand vibrator.
Find Out More About Wand Vibrators
Wand vibrators are a sex toy staple that can be enjoyed solo or with a partner. They deliver broad stimulation that’s perfect for clitoral stimulation or even soothing tired muscles. They are usually some of the strongest vibrators on the market, especially wand-style corded vibrators. Wand vibrators tend to fall on the rumbly end of the spectrum but this varies by model.
There’s also a great selection of wand vibrator attachments that allow you to transform your wand into a g-spot vibrator, penis stroker, and more! If you don’t fancy a full-size wand, there are also plenty of mini wand massagers that still pack a punch!

“I would recommend the Doxy Die Cast 3R to anyone who craves powerful, rumbly vibrations and needs a compact, travel-safe wand to join them on their journeys! Though the wand is undoubtedly expensive, the quality is evident and the wand more than delivers on pleasure and luxury.”

The Emma Neo continues to be a great addition to my toy arsenal. As an external vibrator, I enjoy the variability and intensity it offers. It is a toy that can be equally satisfying used solo or with partner play, and can deliver on its own or with additional insertable toys.”
