    When it comes to smart watches, do you prefer square designs or round-faced ones? Feel free to share your opinions and tell us the reasons for your choice. :D

    Square screens will give you more pixels.

    Round. Job 1 of a watch is to look like a watch.

    Square, because all watches I've had have been rather square shaped, ever since my very first one in 1978, a Casio F-100...

    Don't think I'd like a round watch.

    Square as well.
    I wouldn't pay more than $15 USD.

    Round, because that's the shape that clocks have.

    Sorry that I treat it so mean.
    Round faces are cool, but I want textual info on my watchface even if it's only a pedometer.
