Our Verdict

4.9/5

The We-Vibe Sync is a dual-stimulation vibrator you can wear during partnered sex. While the Sync isn’t as powerful as large, handheld vibrators – it gives you the clit stimulation you need during sex, completely hands-free. So you can stay more engaged with your partner – no need for either of you to hold a vibrator to your clit.

It’s actually one of the only two wearables I’m able to orgasm with hands-free during sex (the other is the Chorus)! 

The Sync fits more securely and provides better stimulation than other wearable couples vibrators I’ve tried. It’s around $50 cheaper than the newer We-Vibe Chorus and, in my opinion, it offers a very similar experience. I think the cost savings will be worthwhile for many people.

The Sync’s vibrations are deep, rumbly, and feel wonderful paired with penetration from my partner.

Pros

  • Provides clit and G-spot stimulation during sex completely hands-free so you can stay in the moment with your partner
  • One of just two couples vibrators I can actually orgasm from hands-free during sex
  • Two adjustable hinges allow you to customize the fit to your body – you can get a much more better fit from the Sync than from toys that are just flexible like the Lelo Tiani 3 or Satisfyer Double Joy
  • Provides both remote and app control so you can choose whichever you find more convenient
  • The Sync’s rumbly vibes are very quiet
  • $50 cheaper than the newer We-Vibe Chorus (the other hands-free couples vibrator strong enough to make me orgasm during sex)

Cons

  • Slightly less stimulating than the newer We-Vibe Chorus
  • Remote can become unresponsive after a long period of inactivity – I’ll sometimes need to hold down buttons again until it reconnects
  • While it’s adjustable, whether the Sync (like any C-shaped vibrator) will work for you is still somewhat dependent on your own individual anatomy

Over the past few years of growing my collection to around 30 wearable vibrators, and extensively testing and enjoying (or not) each one – I’ve become somewhat of an expert on these fun, discreet toys!

Many of the Remote Control Wearable Vibrators I own

Today, I’ll share my experience with the We-Vibe Sync

This C-shaped couples’ vibrator has two motors – one for your G-spot and one for your clit. The G-spot arm is designed to be slim enough that you can still have sex while wearing the Sync! 

How the We-Vibe Sync Works for Hands-Free dual-stimulation during sex

So you can get clitoral stimulation during sex from the Sync’s stronger external motor humming along on your clit.

This is a huge deal for me (and probably for you too). Because, like most humans with vaginas, I can’t orgasm from penetration alone. I (and many others) need clit stimulation during sex to orgasm.

And if you don’t want to multitask by holding a vibrator down there… The Sync can give you the clit stimulation you need entirely hands-free!

Adding a hands-free vibrator can minimize distractions, frustrations, and roadblocks so you can stay in the moment with your partner.

In this We-Vibe Sync review, I’ll show you how the Sync compares to my other wearable couples toys (including the newer, more expensive We-Vibe Chorus). 

Several Hands-Free Couples Vibrators designed for stimulation during partnered sex

So you can learn if it’s the right fit for you. But I’ll also discuss whether a handheld vibrator may be a better choice for you since you make some trade-offs in opting for a hands-free toy.

Main Ways to Use the We-Vibe Sync

The We-Vibe Sync is a pretty versatile sex toy, so there are a few reasons you might be considering this wearable vibrator. 

But… 

It’s certainly better for some uses than others. 

Here are the Sync’s main uses in order of how well it actually performs for that use. 

  1. Hands-free dual-stimulation (mostly clit-focused) during partnered sex
  2. Discreet public play 
  3. Solo clit and G-spot stimulation

If you’re looking for a toy to use during sex to get the clit stimulation you need without holding a toy between your legs - you’re in the right place. Again - the We-Vibe Sync is one of only two wearable toys that can bring me to orgasm during sex. The other is the newer model of this toy - the We-Vibe Chorus.

We-Vibe Sync with diagram of how to wear it during sex

The We-Vibe Sync's main focus is stimulating during PIV (penis-in-vagina) sex. And it’s what the Sync does best! 

Discreet public play and solo dual-stimulation are also possible with the Sync. But are best thought of as bonus uses. There are other toys designed with those uses as their top priority! 

For example:

Egg vibrators for G-spot stimulation or panty vibrators for clit stimulation are easier to wear outside the bedroom. And they tend to be stronger. So if you don’t need a toy you can wear during penetration, these are stronger and more secure options. 

Egg Vibrators and Panty Vibrators are easier to wear around than the We-Vibe Sync

And for solo use at home, I get more intense dual-stimulation from the Lovense Dolce or Lelo Ida. But these are too big to wear during penetrative sex. And neither is easy or comfortable to wear around for play outside the bedroom.

Dual-Stimulation wearable vibrators that are good for solo stimulation

So back to the Sync. 

Since its most impressive feat is its performance during partnered sex, I’ll focus on that in this article. I’ll touch on its bonus uses too! But I’ll mainly focus on my experience with the Sync during sex

Wearing the We-Vibe Sync During Sex 

The We-Vibe Sync is one of my top two wearable couples vibrators during sex! 

The newer We-Vibe Chorus is the only wearable toy I enjoy more than the Sync during sex, because the Chorus has a tighter fit. It presses the vibes into me more more which makes them feel more impactful. 

So even though I can orgasm with both toys, it’s a little easier with the Chorus. It’s the best of the best. And if you’ve got the budget, it’s worth considering.

We-Vibe Chorus is the only wearable couples vibrator that stimulates better than the We-Vibe Sync

But honestly, it’s only a slight boost in performance for around $50 greater cost. The Chorus feels a bit more stimulating and has a more snug fit since it holds its shape more firmly.

But I think many people will benefit from saving $50 for a very similar experience with the We-Vibe Sync.

Here’s a quick visual of how the Sync stacks up against other hands-free couples vibrators to wear during sex. 

We-Vibe Sync Performance During Sex Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

I found the Sync very comfortable during penetration. It stayed in place well, gave some of the strongest stimulation, and had great control options. 

I’ll break down all this and more as you continue reading. But overall, the We-Vibe Sync will give you the best balance between cost and performance!

Now - let’s get into some details!

We-Vibe Sync Vibration Power and Stimulation

The Sync has two different motors to provide dual-stimulation. 

All Couples Vibrators and Motor Counts

The stronger motor is in the larger external end. This provides some medium-powered, extremely rumbly vibrations to your clit. 

Good quality, rumbly vibrations like these are hard to find. And this is the type of vibe-feel that most people prefer.

Vibration power and quality of each of We-Vibe Sync's Motors

The second motor is in the slim, internal arm that rests on your G-spot. Since this motor is small enough to make room for more penetration, the internal vibrations are pretty low-powered. But they still provide subtle stimulation that pairs well with the stronger clitoral vibes.

Compared to similar options, the We-Vibe Sync is tied with the We-Vibe Chorus for being the strongest couples vibrator you can wear during sex

Though the extra tightness from the Chorus presses the vibes deeper into me. So I feel a tiny bit more stimulation from the Chorus.

We-Vibe Sync Vibration Power and Stimulation Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

The We-Vibe Sync feels about 25% stronger to me than the comparably priced Lelo Tiani 3. And the Sync packs nearly double the vibration strength of budget competitors like the Satisfyer Double Joy (which also struggles to stay in place). 

We-Vibe Sync Vibration Power compared to two of its competitors - the Satisfyer Double Joy and Lelo Tiani 3

But it is important to know that C-shaped wearable vibrators like the Sync tend to be softer than larger wearables or handheld toys that aren’t designed for you to wear during sex. For instance, the We-Vibe Sync’s vibes are about half as strong as my most powerful wearable vibrator the Lovense Lush 3.  

Lovense Lush 3 is Twice as Powerful as We-Vibe Sync

So overall, the stimulation is impactful from the extremely rumbly vibrations, but they’re not overwhelmingly strong.

The medium power of this toy means two things:

  1. It’s great for during-sex use because it enhances the experience without becoming over-stimulating for either partner. 
  2. It’s a nice dual-stimulation option for someone who wants solo or public play and prefers less intense vibes.

Since I tend to prefer higher-powered toys, I was initially a little underwhelmed when I took this toy out in public. It definitely was a fun little tease. But after using more powerful egg vibrators like the Lovense Lush 3 and panty vibes like the Lovense Ferri for public play, the lower vibration strength was a bit of a letdown.

Lush 3 and Lovense Ferri are stronger but cannot be worn during sex

But then I tried it out with my partner…

Let me tell you - those vibes take on a whole new sexy form when coupled with penetration.

For one, the We-Vibe Sync’s little G-spot arm gets pressed against the front wall in a really satisfying way. 

When my partner is fingering me, I always have him keep his fingers shallow and nudge against my G-spot. When I’m wearing the Sync, the inner arm presses into my G-spot with each of my partner’s thrusts similar to being fingered.

Except the Sync’s internal arm is also vibrating gently as it presses into my G-spot. And adding extra bursts of pressure with each of my partner’s movements?! Yes please.

And then there’s the clit vibes. 

Again, I want to be clear that if you’re used to the overwhelming strength of something like a wand vibrator, the We-Vibe Sync’s rumbly vibes will feel much softer

Wearable couples toys like the We-Vibe Sync are less powerful than large handheld vibrators like wands

But they still feel great during sex and give me the clit stimulation I need - while freeing my hands up to be more engaged with my partner.

The 12 power settings give a lovely slow build. And those rumbly vibes pair so well with the internal pressure and subtle vibrations I described above.  

All this to say - I think the people who will get the most from this toy are those who plan to use it during PIV sex. It frees up your hands and your head to engage more with your partner. But it doesn’t leave you left out from getting the stimulation you need to feel good too.

As I mentioned earlier, the We-Vibe Chorus is the only wearable couples vibe on the Sync’s power level. 

The Chorus beats the Sync by just a little bit in how well it stimulates. And the reason the Chorus is a tiny bit more stimulating has to do with the way it fits, which we’ll talk about in the next section. But I find the raw vibration power of the Sync and the Chorus feel the same.

So if the strongest stimulation is your priority, the Chorus may be worth checking out! But the Sync is about $50 cheaper and very close to the Chorus. So it’s really up to you!

My other go-to for clit-vibes during penetration is a handheld vibrator. It will not be hands-free, but you can get more power from it than with a wearable. 

Handheld vibrators like the Lelo Mona 2 are more versatile alternatives to the We-Vibe Sync

If you’ve tried a handheld toy and struggled to get one to work during sex - here’s my little secret. 

Use a G-spot vibrator to stimulate your clit! The longer handle, curved shape, and slimmer head do wonders for maneuverability! If you want to hear more about my top pick for this and how I use it, jump on to the Lelo Mona vs We-Vibe Sync section.

We-Vibe Sync Fit and Comfort 

As I briefly mentioned before, how a couples vibrator fits also affects how well it stimulates you.

Big time.

Remember - we’re looking for something hands-free. So you need something that will align correctly and sit tight enough that all the vibration power actually goes where you need it.

Without the assistance of your hands.

If the vibrator is only loosely in contact with your clit, you won’t feel nearly as much of the vibration strength.

The We-Vibe Sync aligns and stays in contact with the right spots better than most wearable couples vibrators. 

We-Vibe Sync Fit & Comfort Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

Two adjustable hinges (one on the Sync’s G-spot and one on the clit arm) let you customize the Sync’s shape to better fit your unique anatomy. The Sync’s hinges gave me a pretty tight fit so that the external arm stayed in firm contact with my clit during sex - without needing to use my hands.

Me holding the We-Vibe Sync with the adjustable hinges in two different positions

Most of the other C-shaped toys I tested were only flexible - they did not have a truly adjustable hinge to set the toy's shape into a fixed position. 

Since I couldn’t adjust the shape of toys like the Lelo Tiani 3 or Satisfyer Double Joy, they fit too loosely. So I couldn’t get the vibrations to go where I needed them without using my hands.

I'm stretching the Satisfyer Double Joy and Lelo Tiani 3 to show how they flex - but they are not adjustable like the We-Vibe Sync

But the We-Vibe Sync gives me the clit stimulation I need to orgasm during sex completely hands-free.

The only toy that had a better fit than the We-Vibe Sync was the We-Vibe Chorus. The Chorus grips on my vulva a little tighter. So it sits more firmly on my clit, and presses the vibes deeper, which makes them feel more intense!

Pressing on both the We-Vibe Chorus and Sync to show that the Chorus wants to spring back more strongly than the Sync
(Chorus on the left, Sync on the right) When you flex the Chorus, it wants to spring back more strongly. This helps it grip your vulva tighter and keep it in a better position.

I still enjoyed the Sync’s fit and was able to orgasm from the vibrations. But it was a quicker process with the Chorus, and felt more intense. So if you want that tighter fit, the Chorus might be your gal! 

But the Sync might be better if you prefer gentler stimulation. Or if you want to save $50 for a very similar experience!

Besides hitting the right spots, you also want something that will stay in. Whether it’s during sex, or while you’re walking around. 

All of these C-shaped toys shift around more while walking than other types of wearables like egg vibrators, which have a substantial-sized bulb that stays put in the vagina. Or panty vibrators, which can magnetically secure to your underwear to keep them exactly where you put them. 

We-Vibe Sync fits less securely than egg vibrators like the Lush 3 and panty vibrators like the Lovense Ferri

But during-sex wearables like the Sync have to leave internal space for an entire penis or dildo to fit. 

So the internal arm keeping it in place as you move around is slimmer than egg vibrators. And they can’t magnetically secure to underwear to stay in place since you’re probably not wearing any.

For that reason, I prefer egg vibrators and panty vibrators for play outside the bedroom. While the We-Vibe Sync has never fallen out while I walk around, it shifts around more. So while you can wear C-shaped vibrators out, they work better during sex.

During sex, the We-Vibe Sync stays in excellent contact with my clit and the extra pressure from my partner’s penis keeps the internal arm pushed firmly into my G-spot. 

If you’re determined to wear the We-Vibe Sync out - wear some well-fitting panties and tight pants, and you’ll also be able to keep the Sync in as you walk around. It will shift around some, but I’ve never had it come out.

Wear tight underwear and pants with We-Vibe Sync if you want to walk around with it

I would advise against wearing loose shorts or a skirt to be on the safe side. Especially if you’re going to be moving around a lot.

If you want a more secure fit for public play - go with an egg vibrator or panty-vibrator like the Lush or Ferri. But just know these won’t be able to be worn during sex. 

And now for comfort. Here’s what I don’t like - poking, pressing, anything with too much girth, or toys that bump against my clit painfully. So that’s what I checked for with these toys!

And the Sync holds up very well when it comes to comfort. It doesn’t apply any uncomfortable pressure where I don’t want it. And it contours to my body to keep it from jostling around uncomfortably during sex. The G-spot arm is easy to slide into place too! 

We-Vibe Sync's external and internal arms are both comfortable

During sex and while walking around, the Sync was my most comfortable C-shaped couples vibrator!

We-Vibe Sync App Control: Close Range Features

You can control the We-Vibe Sync with its physical remote or through the We-Vibe app.

We-Vibe Sync, its remote control, and the We-Vibe app next to each other

While We-Vibe’s toys are exceptionally high quality, with deep rumbly motors and a luxurious feel, I think We-Vibe could improve their app. It isn’t as intuitive or feature-rich as many competitors (Lovense and Satisfyer especially). 

So during sex, I find it easier to control the Sync with the remote control.

We-Vibe Sync Close-Range App Control Features Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

But you can still do plenty in the app - let’s talk details.

The We-Vibe app’s main control screen allows you to control the Sync by selecting from 10 preset patterns. It provides four quadrants, and you can place a vibration pattern in each corner.

Screenshot of how the We-Vibe app's main control screen looks since the recent app update

Then you can quickly switch between which pattern is active by sliding the Sync’s dot into another vibration pattern’s corner.

You can raise and lower the pattern’s vibration intensity by moving the dot away from the center. The farther out you drag the dot, the higher the vibration power. The closer to the center, the softer your We-Vibe Sync will vibrate. 

Screenshots showing how to control each motor of the We-Vibe Sync in the app

This is the best way to control the We-Vibe Sync in the app, and it makes switching patterns or changing their intensity quick and easy. 

The main downside is that it’s less visual than other apps like Lovense or Satisfyer. These apps let you draw and see the toy’s exact vibration pattern. Whereas We-Vibe’s app simply shows an icon representing the pattern. It used to show the pattern clearly before a 2022 update to the app.

Side by side screenshots of the We-Vibe app, Satisfyer App, and Lovense app showing how pattern visualization differs

I actually feel that the mid-2022 We-Vibe app update made it less intuitive and visual than it was before. So here’s hoping that the efforts We-Vibe is putting into updating their app will make it more user-friendly again in the future.

Side by side screenshot comparing main control screen in different versions of We-Vibe app

Having better visuals can help a partner better control your toy since they have a deeper understanding of what you’re feeling. But if you’re controlling the toy yourself, it’s not too important since you already know what you’re feeling.

You can also control the We-Vibe Sync through “Touch Mode.” You swipe your finger along the screen to make the We-Vibe Sync vibrate. The faster you move your fingers on the screen, the quicker and stronger the vibrations are. 

We-Vibe says this is supposed to simulate fingering. 

Screenshot of We-Vibe Touch Mode to control the Sync

However, this control mode requires you to constantly move your fingers around the screen. It’s too much work to be helpful. So I don’t use it very much - especially if I’m wearing the Sync in public.

Then there is “Beat Mode” which lets you sync your vibes with your favorite songs. You can also choose for your toy to vibrate in response to the ambient noise around you picked up by your phone’s mic. That way, your We-Vibe Sync only vibrates stronger when there’s more sound around you to mask the Sync’s noise.

I will note that the app's current version still says that this Beat Mode is “Coming Soon.” But here is how this looked in the older version of the app. And I expect it will be similar, but with some slight visual changes.

We-Vibe Sync Beat Mode

You can also design and save your own patterns, but it’s pretty hard to find this feature. And We-Vibe’s pattern creation isn’t designed as well as other apps’ pattern creation. 

Under Multi Vibe, select “+” then “Create Vibe.” This lets you draw a pattern. 

But it’s confined to a tiny screen, is not super responsive to your finger, and the Sync doesn’t vibrate as you draw the pattern. So it’s pretty hard to tell how the pattern will actually feel.

We-Vibe Sync Create Your Own Pattern Screenshot

This is one of the main features that We-Vibe’s app is behind Satisfyer’s and Lovense’s. 

Satisfyer’s Create Your Own Pattern feature has better visuals, and you can feel the vibrations while you draw them. So you know whether you’re creating something you enjoy.

Screenshots comparing We-Vibe Sync and Satisfyer Double Joy Pattern Creation

It also can be a longer pattern since you’re creating it live. And it has a “loop” function, which is really helpful in creating a repetitive sequence without having to be too hands-on.

Unfortunately, Satisfyer’s wearable couples vibrators stimulate far worse than the We-Vibe Sync. And Lovense has yet to create a toy designed to wear during sex. 

Satisfyer Double Joy couples vibrator and Satisfyer App

Though the We-Vibe Sync’s app has some downsides compared to others, it still works well. It’s just less visual and intuitive. Since this is a toy designed primarily to use during sex, the app is less important than for other long-distance or public play vibrators.

I’d gladly take the We-Vibe Sync’s better stimulation during sex over its competitors. Plus, you can use the remote to control the Sync if you don’t like the We-Vibe app.

We-Vibe Sync and its remote & app controls next to other couples vibrators and their controls

The We-Vibe Sync is a top performing couples toy in most other areas (including the fact it can bring me to orgasm, while most others can't). So even though it’s not my top pick for app-control, I still think it might be worth it for many! And a little time spent familiarizing yourself with the app goes a long way.

We-Vibe Sync App Control: Long-Distance Features

We-Vibe’s long distance app control is very similar to the close-range Bluetooth control with many of the same pros and cons. 

Screenshot of a video call while sharing long-distance control of the We-Vibe Sync

Your long-distance partner has access to the same main control screen and Touch Modes you normally have. The only mode unavailable in long-distance control is Beat Mode.

You can text, voice call, and video chat within the We-Vibe app while you let a partner control your Sync. You can maximize the video screen to make it easier to see your partner or minimize it to see the controls more easily.

Screenshot of the We-Vibe app's messaging feature with a long-distance partner

One unique feature of We-Vibe’s long-distance experience is that you can switch between which partner is controlling the vibrator without ending the video call. Sometimes I like to take control because I know what my body wants at a particular moment. 

Screenshot showing taking back control in We-Vibe app

I can’t take back control in other apps without ending the call. But with We-Vibe’s I can simply take back control, set the vibes how I want them, and keep chatting with my partner.

The We-Vibe Sync’s long-distance control does take more getting used to than others. It’s just a little clunky to navigate, and you have to click several places before getting where you want. 

We-Vibe Sync Long Distance App Controlled Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

Figuring out how to connect with your partner is trickier than with Lovense or Satisfyer.

When my partner and I were testing long-distance play recently, we discovered that he sometimes sent a request and I never even knew! At first, I thought this was a connectivity issue. But we eventually figured out that you only receive your partner’s control request if you have specific pages open on the app. 

Screenshot of partner control request in We-Vibe app

You have to click on your partner’s icon in your saved Long Distance partners list. Once you’ve clicked on their icon, you’ll be able to see their control requests. 

This means that if you’re enjoying a bit of solo fun and your partner hops online and requests access, you won’t see it. So you have to be prepared and pre-plan your fun together. You may need to message outside the We-Vibe app first to let your partner know you’ll be hopping on and to look for your request. 

Once we were connected, video chatting and control sharing worked well. But you’ll definitely need to take your time and learn the app as it’s less intuitive than others.

Bottom Line: We-Vibe Sync Long Distance Control

The We-Vibe app gives lots of control abilities but suffers a bit from non-user-friendliness. However, it’s nothing that time spent familiarizing yourself with the app can’t fix. But, if you’ll frequently play long distance, you may want to consider a Lovense vibrator instead. 

But since the We-Vibe Sync is best to use during partnered sex, a clunkier long-distance experience isn’t a deal-breaker for me with this type of toy. 

We-Vibe Sync Remote Control Features

The We-Vibe Sync’s remote control is simple and reliable.

We-Vibe Sync Remote Control Features Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

While it has no special features like the Lelo Tiani 3’s SenseMotion control or the We-Vibe Chorus’ Squeeze remote, the Sync’s remote provides all the basics you need to control the vibrator well. 

Remote controls for the We-Vibe Sync, Chorus, and Tiani 3 compared

The Sync has a four-button remote which is more useful than many remotes out there. 

The four buttons allow you to move both forward and backward between patterns (instead of just cycling through a loop). And you can increase or decrease the intensity of each pattern through about 12 different levels.

The ability to adjust the intensity of a pattern is one of the things I look for the most on a remote. It’s important for having a nice gradual work-up instead of just blasting it on high. I think having this ability really makes or breaks the experience.

We-Vibe Sync remote control and Chorus remote in my hand for size comparison

Even though the We-Vibe Sync’s remote is more basic than the We-Vibe Chorus’ remote, I usually prefer it. This is because I find the Sync’s remote easier to hold during sex and to hide discreetly during public play.

If you want a simple, but effective remote for those nights without a phone, the Sync’s works reliably and provides all the main control you’ll need.

We-Vibe Sync Connectivity

Between remote and app-controlled toys, the apps often have more connectivity issues, so we’ll start there. 

The We-Vibe Sync’s connection with the app has been reliable for me. It pairs quickly to the app, and I can typically play for over half an hour before experiencing a disconnection.

We-Vibe Sync Connectivity Rating Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

And that actually came as a surprise to me. 

I’ve used We-Vibe toys for a few years now, and their connectivity used to be much worse. They would struggle to connect to the app, often taking several minutes, whereas my Lovense toys always connected within seconds.

And in looking through some older customer reviews - I wasn’t alone in my experience. 

But since We-Vibe’s major app update in June 2022, I’ve been retesting our We-Vibe toys and have seen major improvements in the quality of their connectivity.

So while I think they went in a strange direction with the look and user experience in the update, they seem to have improved the most important aspect - maintaining a stable connection.

As I mentioned, I can usually play for more than half an hour before a disconnection occurs - even if I’m locking my phone or using other apps.

When a disconnection does occur, it’s not too disruptive either. The Sync often re-pairs automatically. But it does occasionally require you to walk through the pairing process again. 

Thankfully, the pairing button is on the toy's external portion. So you won’t have to take the We-Vibe Sync out to reconnect.

Sharing control of the We-Vibe Sync with a long-distance partner was also a smooth experience. When we sent invites, we were always able to get connected. And we didn’t experience disconnections while playing long-distance.

The only exception I encountered is that you have to go to your partner’s screen on the app to see their invite. No notification pops up to let you know they sent one.

So if you aren’t expecting to play with your partner, you’ll miss it. That means you may have to communicate with each other outside of We-Vibe’s app to let your partner know you’ll be sending an invite.

This wasn’t a connectivity issue but something to be aware of with the We-Vibe app’s newer design.

The Sync’s physical remote can occasionally become unresponsive if I leave it inactive for too long. I have to click around on the buttons or hold the top button down until it starts responding again. 

But as long as you’re active with the remote, it stays well-connected when you’re in range. And if you do wander too far from your partner, the remote automatically reconnects once you’re back within range.

We-Vibe Sync remote compared to app connectivity

The last test I ran for connectivity was the range itself. My partner and I took all our wearable during sex vibrators outside to see how far I could separate the toy and remote or phone before a disconnect occurred. 

For the We-Vibe Sync, it was around 22 feet with the remote. But the app held its connection until around 200 feet! 

Now, this number is greater than you’ll get in typical use. We tested in a wide-open place with no obstructions between us so that we could compare different toys to each other.

But this was the longest range achieved by a remote control couples vibrator - a bit farther than the We-Vibe Chorus!

Bottom Line: We-Vibe Sync Connectivity

The Sync may occasionally disconnect from the app. But it’s pretty infrequent, and usually resolves itself or is quickly fixed. We-Vibe’s 2022 app update has greatly improved our experience with their connectivity and has helped close the gap between their app-controlled toys and Lovense’s.

We-Vibe Sync Noise

Where you plan to use your vibrator determines how quiet it needs to be. 

Do you want one that’s quiet enough for public play? Or do you just need it to be inaudible to some nosey roommates on the other side of a closed-door?

Luckily, the We-Vibe Sync is quiet enough for both uses! In fact, the only wearable couples vibrators quieter than the Sync are the We-Vibe Chorus and We-Vibe Match (and not by much).

Let’s talk details:

First, I test all my toys on low and high powers while wearing them and measure their decibel level. On low power, the Sync hit about 37 decibels. And on high, it went up to 47.

The Sync started a little louder than some others, but it was one of the quietest on high power. So you can confidently use the higher intensities without the toy becoming audible.

But let’s talk practicality and where the Sync can remain unheard! My partner and I tested out all the toys at several different locations. I’d run through the power levels and patterns, and my partner let me know if and when he could start to hear the toy.

The first test was in a quiet room of our house, sitting 10 feet apart. In such a silent location, we couldn’t freely use any of the toys on all powers. But most had some ability to use the lowest powers, but became audible once on medium to high powers.

In the same room of our house, my partner started to hear the We-Vibe Sync once I turned it up to around the 30-50% power mark. So in very quiet locations, you would be safest if you stuck to the lowest power levels.

However, our next test location was at a pretty low-volume coffee shop. And here, my partner could not hear the We-Vibe Sync at all on low or high power! The deep, rumbly quality of the vibrations keeps the Sync very quiet.

So we could use the Sync even in a quieter coffee shop. And in louder places like bars and breweries, we had no concerns whatsoever. 

If you’re looking for a toy to wear anywhere with even some low-level, consistent ambient noise, the Sync will be great! I still wouldn’t recommend it for absolutely silent places (same room of a quiet house, places with no music or chatter, etc.) 

But most public places are good - just make sure to start with the low levels and test at home first! 

For those who have housemates and are looking to use this toy behind a closed door:

I also had my partner stand outside our bedroom door while I used the We-Vibe Sync in our room. Again, I ran through all the patterns and power levels, and my partner couldn’t hear anything on the other side.

You’re definitely good for at-home use.

We-Vibe Sync Battery Life & Charging

To test the Sync’s battery life, I charged it fully. Then I turned it to its highest power level and let it run until it died!

The We-Vibe Sync lasted 85 minutes constantly on high power. So you’ll have plenty of time to use it at home during sex. But you’ll probably want something longer like the Lovense Lush or Ferri for an evening out on the town.

We-Vibe Sync Battery Life Compared to other Hands-free Couples Vibrators Graphic

You can also extend the Sync’s battery life beyond 85 minutes if you use low and medium power levels too.

The other couples vibrators that lasted longer, like the We-Vibe Unite, Satisfyer Double Joy, and others, are lower-powered than the Sync. As one of the two strongest C-shaped couples vibrators, the We-Vibe Sync had the best battery life without sacrificing power.

The We-Vibe Sync also comes with a fun charging station! This one charges magnetically and fits perfectly in its case. Check it out:

His Experience with the We-Vibe Sync

Ok, ok. Enough about me. Passing it momentarily over to my partner so you can hear his experience and what the stimulation is like for him. Here’s what he had to say:

If you have a partner with a penis, you may be wondering if they’ll get much stimulation from the We-Vibe Sync.

How We-Vibe Sync feels for him

And the answer to that question for the We-Vibe Sync (and really any of these C-shaped wearable vibrators) is - not much.

The internal arm contacting your penis is mostly there to keep the We-Vibe Sync in place. The vibrations that arm provides are pretty subtle. So while I do feel the vibrations, they’re a neutral experience for me. 

We-Vibe Sync's G-spot arm is soft so doesn't overstimulate him

I think it’s best for both partners that the internal arm doesn’t stimulate your penis too much - I never feel like I’m going to orgasm too soon from the Sync’s vibrations adding to the stimulation.

It’s also still easy to enter my partner while she’s wearing the Sync. The We-Vibe Sync’s G-spot arm does fill up more space than some slimmer options like the We-Vibe Unite and Lelo Tiani 3. So it’s a more snug fit, but it still feels comfortable to me and not too tight.

I can still thrust comfortably while my partner has the Sync in place.

We-Vibe Sync vs Handheld Vibrators During Sex

Now you should be aware that the vibrations from any wearable couples vibrator, including the We-Vibe Sync, are less powerful and versatile than many handheld toys. 

Handheld vibrators are often larger and can house a stronger motor. But the We-Vibe Sync and other couples vibrators are slimmer by design. So they’re able to fit easily between your bodies without being intrusive. But that also means they don’t have quite as much power.

We-Vibe Sync next to handheld vibrators for comparison

With a handheld vibrator, you can also move the toy all around your vulva and press the vibes exactly where you want them. But once you position the We-Vibe Sync in a good spot for your clit, that’s where it will remain. 

You can still reach down and press your wearable toy more firmly against you to feel the impact of the vibrations more. But getting the exact stimulation you want, exactly where you want it is always easier with a handheld toy.

Personally, I usually don’t mind holding a vibrator on my clit during sex. So I use my two favorites (the Lelo Mona 2 and Lovense Hyphy) more often with my partner than my We-Vibe Sync. 

Lelo Mona and Lovense Hyphy - Favorite handheld vibrators during sex

If you don’t already have a good handheld vibrator to use during sex, I’d consider grabbing the Mona 2 or Hyphy first unless you really value a hands-free experience. 

For me, the We-Vibe Sync and other hands-free couples toys are fun options to have in my rotation. I use them for the times my partner and I just want our hands free to wander all over each other 😉

But for hands-free clit and G-spot stimulation during sex - the We-Vibe Sync is one of the two best. And one of only two that actually takes me all the way.

Other We-Vibe Sync Specs

Design and Aesthetics

The Sync comes in two different colors - the soft aqua that I have or a deep purple. So not a lot of variety, but I’m still a fan of the light blue on mine. It came pretty true to color - maybe just a touch more vibrant than what was shown on the site.

We-Vibe Sync color options

The silicone is smooth and soft to the touch, which feels luxurious. That’s one of the things We-Vibe has figured out - their toys just look and feel good.

And the charging port/case is another fun feature and a neat little way to store it. 

We-Vibe Sync Charging Case

Materials

The We-Vibe Sync is made from phthalate-free, body-safe silicone! No BPA or latex either.

Size

The Sync is a little less than 3 inches long, 1.24 inches tall, and 1.64 inches thick. This is pretty average-sized for C-shaped toys like this.

The G-spot arm takes up a little more space than the extra small arm of the Lelo Tiani 3. But my partner and I still had no issues fitting both him and the toy inside me.

Waterproof Rating

The We-Vibe Sync is 100% waterproof! So take it in the tub with you if you’d like! This also makes cleaning it super easy.

We-Vibe Sync Packaging

I always enjoy We-Vibe’s packaging - the colors, the little slide-through box, and the extra goodies they include. Of course, it arrives in a plain brown box with no logos for discretion.

FAQ

How to use the We-Vibe Sync?

The We-Vibe Sync is a dual-stimulation toy with two motors to stimulate both your clit and G-spot. 

Apply a good water-based lube to the smaller arm and slide that arm into your vagina. You may want to take it out and adjust the hinges a few times until you find a fit where the external arm stays tight to your clit. 

Use water-based lube with We-Vibe Sync

You can wear the We-Vibe Sync during penetrative sex (its main use) or for discreet public play. Control it through the We-Vibe App or the Sync’s remote control.

How to clean the We-Vibe Sync?

Since the We-Vibe Sync is completely waterproof, you can run it under warm water or submerge it. Use soap and water to scrub any textured areas especially. Then set it to dry in a safe place!

We-Vibe Sync Review Results

The We-Vibe Sync is one of my two favorite wearable vibrators for hands-free stimulation during sex.

We-Vibe Syn and its remote fit neatly in charging case

It fits more securely and provides better stimulation than other options like the Lelo Tiani 3, Dame Eva, Satisfyer Double Joy, and the more budget-level We-Vibe couples vibrators.

The We-Vibe Chorus is the only hands-free couples vibrator that gave me more stimulation than the We-Vibe Sync. But it was a pretty minimal difference in my opinion for such a significant price difference. 

Side by side of We-Vibe Chorus and We-Vibe Sync

For many people saving $50 and going with the Sync will provide just as good of an experience. 

I think the We-Vibe Sync is a great choice if you:

  • Want a toy to give her the clit stimulation she needs without one of you having to hold a vibrator to her clit
  • Are aware that the Sync will be less powerful than large handheld vibrators, and want to make that trade-off to have hands-free, more connected sex.
  • Want a very comfortable toy 
  • Want an app with a variety of control abilities, but don’t mind if you can’t create your own vibration pattern easily
  • Want a simple remote to control your toy
  • Want to connect with a long-distance partner and provide them with control of your toy
  • Want a toy quiet enough to wear to low-volume coffee shops or louder
  • Are content with 85-120 minutes of battery life

I think an alternative toy would be better for you if you:

  • Would rather have stronger vibrations, but have to hold a vibrator during sex
  • Are willing to spend $50 extra for a bit better stimulation and fit from the We-Vibe Chorus (the updated version of the Sync)
  • Are on a tight budget

We-Vibe Sync Alternatives

Handheld Toy for Stronger and More Versatile Stimulation - Lelo Mona 2

If you’re looking for something that will add clitoral stimulation during sex. But you don’t need it to be hands-free: the handheld Lelo Mona can provide stronger and more versatile stimulation than the Sync.

We-Vibe Sync next to Lelo Mona 2

Since it’s handheld, you can maneuver it and press the vibes wherever you want.

I’ve been using the Mona 2 for years. And even though I find new toys for that purpose, I often return to the Mona.

If you’ve tried handhelds during penetration with no success in the past, here’s how the Mona might differ:

The Mona is technically a G-spot vibrator (though I use it more often clitorally). So it’s curved and longer than other vibrators. 

Why Lelo Mona 2 is good for clit stimulation during sex

The longer handle is great for keeping your hands out of the way of the action. It’s easier to hold and maneuver than small bullet vibrators. But the slim profile and gentle curve are really helpful for slipping the tip between your bodies without taking up too much space (like large wands do).

If you don’t already have a good handheld toy, I’d consider the Mona 2 before adding the Sync to your collection. You can learn more by heading over to my Lelo Mona 2 review

We-Vibe Couples Toy Comparison

I own all four of We-Vibe’s C-shaped couples toys - the Chorus, Sync, Match, and Unite. 

All We-Vibe Couples Toys with their remote controls - Chorus, Sync, Match, and Unite

In my opinion, the Chorus and Sync are the two that are worth considering. They both have major improvements over the Match and Unite. And they’re the only two I’m able to orgasm from hands-free!

The biggest downside of the Match and Unite is that they are only flexible. Neither has an adjustable hinge so you can’t customize the shape to fit your body. As a result, they don’t stay in contact with my clit very well, and they shift around much more during sex.

The Match and Unite are also less powerful than the Sync and Chorus. So overall, you’ll get much less stimulation from them. I cannot orgasm hands-free from the Unite or Match, but I can with both the Sync and Chorus.

The We-Vibe Match is typically only $10 less than the Sync so it’s really not worthwhile to consider it when the Sync performs so much better at such a minimal price increase.

On the other hand, the We-Vibe Unite is typically around $50 less than the Sync. If you really want to save some money, you can try it. But you’ll need to be aware, you’re much less likely to get a good fit with the Unite than with the adjustable Sync or Chorus.

Read my full We-Vibe Unite review and We-Vibe Match review to see if the cost savings outweigh the downsides for you.

We-Vibe Chorus vs We-Vibe Sync

The Sync and Chorus are the two newest creations in We-Vibe’s world of during-sex wearables. So they have several improvements on the older models (Match and Unite). And they have a lot in common.

Both the Sync and Chorus use the same app to control the toy. And they both have a remote that you can control it with too.

We-Vibe Sync, We-Vibe Chorus, and their remote controls

Both toys have a motor in the clitoral stimulator and the G-spot arm. And I find their vibration strengths to be about the same. Though the Chorus fits just a touch better on my clit to get a little more stimulation.

The app control is essentially the same for both the Chorus and the Sync.

We-Vibe Sync and Chorus with the We-Vibe App

Sound levels are pretty similar too. You can use them in any place that has some gentle ambient noise. Though the Chorus’s lowest powers are even quieter than the Sync’s. 

The Chorus is the newest and most pricey. And the Sync is just a bit older, and typically $50 dollars less expensive. So let’s talk about how these toys differ. And whether the price jump is worth it for the newer Chorus.

The biggest difference is that the Chorus holds a firmer grip than the Sync. So even though both are adjustable, the Chorus presses more tightly against my clit when worn. This is great for really pressing those vibes in and giving more-intense stimulation! 

Sync and We-Vibe Chorus - Chorus fits better
If you try to flex the Chorus to make the C-shape wider, it wants to snap back more than the Sync does; This helps it hold onto your vulva better in use.

I personally found that the We-Vibe Sync’s fit and stimulation were enough to push me over the edge. The extra tightness of the Chorus wasn’t really necessary, but it did make it easier for me to orgasm. 

“It only took me a couple of minutes to figure out how to place the hinges to fit me (thank god for a sex toy brand that gets that women's bodies vary from each other!)”

-Lovehoney customer feedback

“I just found another way to use it and once again it is heaven. I extend it out a little bit to make it less of a snug fit and then ride it against the mattress and let me tell you - whew boy! what a ride 😉 The point is that yes it is expensive, but there are so many different ways to use it, not just with the modes, but with the different angles you can move the arm and the different combinations you can use it.”

-Lovehoney customer feedback

Another way the Sync and Chorus differ is in their remote. The Chorus’s remote is larger and has a squeeze-responsive feature. Even though it’s more feature-rich than the Sync’s remote, I found it harder to use and prefer the Sync’s simple remote control.

We-Vibe Chorus Squeeze Remote vs We-Vibe Sync normal remote

The Chorus’ remote control also has to be within range of the toy to use the app. Which I find to be a bit of a bummer. Because then you can’t go out with just the toy and app. You have to lug the larger remote around. 

The We-Vibe Sync’s remote is much smaller and can be left at home if you only plan to use the app! I also find the remote easier to carry around while out or to hold during sex. But it does not have the squeeze-responsive feature that the Chorus does. 

Overall, the Chorus and Sync are pretty comparable toys with a few personal-preference decisions that I’ll leave up to you!

Lelo Tiani 3 vs We-Vibe Sync

The Lelo Tiani is one of the We-Vibe Sync’s main competitors. 

And while I did enjoy this toy, I wouldn’t recommend it over the Sync to most people.

We-Vibe Sync next to Lelo Tiani 3

It scored lower in every category than the Sync, yet the Tiani costs more than the Sync. The Tiani fits too loosely for me since it’s only flexible. There are no adjustable hinges like the Sync has, so you can’t customize its shape to your body.

However, there’s one type of person I would recommend the Lelo Tiani over the We-Vibe Sync to.

If your vagina is especially tight or your partner’s penis size is especially girthy, you may prefer the Tiani 3. The Tiani’s G-spot arm is even slimmer than the We-Vibe Sync’s and allows even more space for additional penetration.

Lelo Tiani 3 and We-Vibe Sync showing the slimmer size of the Tiani's G-spot arm

Most people will benefit from the Sync’s greater customization and more secure fit. But those needing the extra room may want the Tiani 3.

Another thing I do appreciate about the Tiani 3 is the SenseMotion remote. It is a nice feature because you can just tip the remote back and forth to go up and back down in power. Instead of having to press buttons or fiddle with an app.

Lelo Tiani 3 and the SenseMotion remote control

But overall, most people will have a better fit and experience from the We-Vibe Sync. I’d only consider the Tiani if your vagina is especially tight or your partner’s penis is very girthy.

Final Thoughts

The Sync is one of the two best wearable toys during sex. The vibrations are enough to enhance sex, but not overstimulate either partner.

The adjustable hinges help it fit better than budget models and other competitors to the We-Vibe Sync.

It’s still a pricey option, but not as expensive as the newest model of this toy, the We-Vibe Chorus. And for it being a slightly older version, I enjoy it just as much!
