History of the Watch

Welcome to Watch Pilot, the home of designer watches and my name is Jack. This is our unboxng and review on the new Lotus hybrid smart watch.

View the Lotus Connected Hybrid Smartwatch (18800/3) for men.

Let’s talk about the watch brand Lotus which is a Spanish watch company. The company was founded in 1980 and is owned by the Festina Group which you may have already heard of. The Festina Group also owns five watch brands including Festina, Lotus, Calypso, Jaquar and Candino.

Lotus launched their first watch called the Lunar Phase which was a bestseller. They also have many collections from the Lotus colour. We have smart casual, multi-function, junior and many more.

Lotus also has their own collection of Jewellery from earrings to necklaces.


Unboxing the Watch

Let’s unbox the Lotus Connected hybrid smart watch.

The first impressions of this watch is, it is not like your normal smart watch with a touch screen like the Apple watch.

The watch has a more traditional style which I like. From the glance you would not know it has any smart features.

So how do these functions work? When you first get your watch, you connect it through bluetooth to your phone with the Lotus Connected app.

The app allows you to use all the features this watch has to offer. But there are some features you can access from the watch pushers which we will get onto later.


Specifications of this Hybrid Smart Watch

Let’s go through the specifications.

The men’s Lotus Connected Hybrid Smartwatch (18800/3) has a diameter of 44.5mm with a depth of 14.1mm.

This watch has a circular stainless steel case with a rotating bezel.

The watch is covered in a mineral crystal glass – This isn’t as scratch resistant as a normal sapphire glass.

Inside the watch you will find a digital quartz movement and a CPU which controls the smartwatch.

As you can see, the watch has a dark blue sunray dial which really complements the black bezel.

The hybrid collection is finished with a number of different bracelets. But this watch in particular comes with a silver metal bracelet. Other watches in this range are finished with a leather strap or a metal Milanese bracelet in a number of colours catering to everyone’s tastes and style.


Functions and Smart Features

Now we are going to be taking a look at the functions and smart features the Lotus Connected hybrid smartwatch has to offer.

Firstly, we will look at the dial. Like a traditional watch, it tells the time. The watch has a date display timer and a stopwatch.

The dial has additional features. For example, an accelerometer for motion to track your steps which a lot of people love. There is vibrations for filter notifications.

This watch can capture outdoor temperature.

If you want to know the time in another country, the watch has an additional time zone which can tell the time in two locations.

Let's take a look at the pushers. The Lotus watch has an upper and lower push buttons to activate the functions of your choice, and a crown to control the information on the sub-dials.

The upper and lower buttons are customisable so you can change which pusher is used for specific features through the Lotus Connect app.

With the pushers, you can silence alarms, dismiss calls, control your music and camera, and iFit.

I find this a brilliant feature. With iFit, you can track all your fitness activities and have reminders to get moving. This is perfect for someone like me as I am always sitting down for work and it is great to be reminded to get up and move and go out for a walk.


How Much is the Lotus Connected Hybrid Smartwatch?

The moment you’ve all been waiting for – How much does this watch cost?

The watch retails at £249 but on Watch Pilot you can actually purchase it for £229.



For people who prefer a traditional looking watch but want the smart features, this is a great collection.

The Lotus Connected app is super easy and simple to use.

The watch has a good weight to it and appears to be very well manufactured.

While I like the styling of this watch, it is a bit too big for my wrist. I probably prefer to go for the leather strap or the Milanese bracelet.

That’s for today’s watch unboxing and review.
