About The We-Vibe Sync

We-Vibe was one of the first companies to make wearable vibrators designed to be used during penis-in-vagina (PIV) sex, and the Sync is a new, improved version of the company's classic design. The toy's body is a U shape, with a slim end designed to fit inside the vagina and a wider end designed to sit against the clitoris. It is waterproof (though the remote control isn't) and comes with a useful docking stand/storage case made of sturdy plastic. The insertable length is about 2.5" and the insertable arm is very slim. The We-Vibe Sync is also adjustable to fit a wide range of bodies. The We-Vibe Sync comes with a remote control and can also be controlled via the free "We-Connect" smartphone app from anywhere in the world. Though it's designed for partnered play, it also works well for solo pleasure.

My Experience With We-Vibe Sync

My Personal Experiences with We-Vibe Sync

When I first received the We-Vibe Sync, my partner and I tested it together, and it’s still a toy I’ll reach for if I’m craving a little extra clitoral stimulation during PIV sex. I had to play around with the positioning to get the toy to sit properly between our bodies and get the external arm resting comfortably against my clit. Thanks to the hinged design and bendy internal arm, this only took a minute or so. Before we started having PIV sex, we tested a few of the toy’s settings to see which ones we liked best. I’ll be honest: I hate patterns. I just don’t care for them and when I’m using a toy purely for pleasure (as opposed to testing for a review), I never use them. The strongest constant vibration setting is by far the most enjoyable for me.

Use During Sex

I thought the We-Vibe Sync might move around during sex, but it actually stayed in place very nicely. The internal arm doesn’t really do anything for me. It’s not long or curved enough to hit my G-spot and I don’t care for internal vibrations anyway. From my perspective, it’s mostly just there to anchor the toy in place so it can achieve its actual purpose: clitoral pleasure. However, my partner did report that he could feel the internal vibrations against his penis and that they added additional pleasure for him, so that’s a win! I’m glad the internal arm is so small and slender, as this means it doesn’t get in the way or poke me painfully in the vaginal walls! The We-Vibe Sync can get me off reliably if I use it during penetrative sex, especially if I’m warmed up first. The vibrations are powerful and rumbly enough to add to, rather than detract from, the pleasure of sex with a partner.

Not Just for Penetrative Sex

The Sync is a more versatile toy than it would first appear. I use mine at least as much for solo masturbation as I do for partnered sex. The hands-free design is great for people who might struggle to hold and manipulate a toy, or just for anyone who wants to lie back and let their toy do the work for them! The We-Vibe Sync is also great for long-distance play thanks to its app functionality (more on that in a minute) and, if you’re feeling daring, you could even use it for discreet play outside of your home.

We-Connect App

We-Connect is We-Vibe’s free app, available on both Android and iOS. The app allows you to control the toy, change the pattern or speed, even control the two motors separately (the latter cannot be done in any other way.) When I use the toy solo, I switch off the internal vibrations entirely and just use it as a positioning aid while I turn the clitoral vibrations on full. The app also allow you to create your own vibration patterns using a simple finger swipe mechanism. You can save your creations and build a “playlist” of your favorite settings. Beat Mode allows you to get your toy to vibrate in time with your favorite music, and Touch mode translates your partner’s movements on their screen into vibrations in your toy when you’re playing together. The other great thing about the We-Connect app is that it allows you to give control of your toy to your partner from anywhere in the world, while video or text chatting within the app. If they also have an app-compatible We-Vibe toy, you can control each other’s toys simultaneously. I found the We-Connect app mostly easy to use, with a few learning curves at the beginning. Connectivity was fast and has mostly been reliable, but make sure you have a strong internet connection. I once tried to use this toy with a long-distance partner and their internet connection simply wasn’t powerful enough to handle it so the connectivity kept dropping. Some people have also expressed concerns about the privacy implications of sex toy apps such as We-Connect.  Do your own research and decide whether you are comfortable with this aspect before you buy.

Design

We-Vibe Sync Design

The We-Vibe Sync comes in two equally pretty colours, a plum purple or a blue/green "aqua". The Sync features a motor in each arm for dual stimulation. It's a well-thought-out design and one that the company has continually refined over the years with its various iterations of wearable vibrators. Probably my favorite feature of the Sync's design is its adjustable fit. It features a moveable hinge between the two arms, and the tail of the internal arm is very flexible. Since bodies come in different shapes and sizes, it's useful to be able to adjust the toy so that it sits securely and comfortably on each unique body.

Ease of Use

We-Vibe Sync Ease of Use

The Sync can be operated in three ways: via a single button on the outside of the external section, with the accompanying remote control, or through the We-Connect smartphone app. The app is fairly easy to use, though takes a little effort to sync up and learn how it works (see above for more information.) I find the remote control the most intuitive, as you can switch between the ten different vibration modes as well as turn the speed up or down. I don't like the button on the toy itself so much, as its functionality is quite limited and if you miss the setting you want, you have to scroll all the way back through.

Quality

We-Vibe Sync Quality

I've had my We-Vibe Sync for over 4 years and it still works like new. We-Vibe crafts quality products that are built to last. The Sync is made of soft, body-safe and durable silicone which still feels as high quality today as it did on the very first use. I haven't had any problems with the motors, battery life, or any other declines that some toys suffer from after a few years. A top quality product that should serve you well for many years.

Price

We-Vibe Sync Price

The We-Vibe Sync retails at $199 at full price. It's not a cheap toy, and it's always a gamble to spend so much on a product that may or may not work for you. If this style of toy works for you, though, you'll be paying for quality materials, quality manufacturing, and impressive longevity. The Sync is far from the lowest entry-point into this style of toy, price-wise, but I do believe it's one of the best on the market.

Performance

We-Vibe Sync Performance

My enduring love for We-Vibe products is largely due to the strong, rumbly motors the company uses. Though I'm among the smallish percentage of people with vulvas who can sometimes reach orgasm through G-spot stimulation, I much prefer clitoral pleasure most of the time and have my most satisfying orgasms that way. So having a toy that I can use to enjoy those powerful clitoral orgasms while having PIV sex with my partner is an absolute godsend. Once the toy was in place and I'd adjusted it to fit, it performed admirably. I've come back to it again and again, not just during partnered sex but also as a toy for solo masturbation.

Packaging

We-Vibe Sync Packaging

The We-Vibe Sync arrived in a branded box with a colorful, abstract design on the front and information about the toy on the back. The packaging looks and feels luxurious, and it felt like a real treat to receive and unbox this product. Inside, along with the toy, you get the docking stand/storage case, the remote control, a charging cable, an instruction booklet, and a little sachet of We-Vibe branded water-based lube. I appreciated the effort that has clearly gone into presentation, and that it didn't feature tonnes of single-use plastic.

Materials and care

We-Vibe Sync Materials and care

The We-Vibe Sync is coated in silicone, which is a phthalate-free, non-porous, and completely body-safe material. Since the Sync is waterproof, it's easy to clean. I like to wipe mine down with a body-safe sterile wipe (I buy these in bulk from a medical supplies website) and then rinse it off with warm water and a gentle soap. Since the docking stand also functions as a storage case, it's easy to keep your toy clean, safe, and dust-free in storage.

Special feature

We-Vibe Sync Special feature

I was initially going to talk about the We-Connect app here, but actually I think the We-Vibe Sync’s best feature is its adjustability. With so many wearable toys, I give up because they just don’t fit with my body. The combination of the hinge and the bendy arm make the We-Vibe Sync body-friendly for far more people. It also means you can adjust the toy depending on how much direct clitoral pressure you prefer.
