Seeing so many new smartwatches on the horizon with so many different designs, it really got me thining about the faces. Most of the smartwatches I own — the ones that I wear often at least — have square or rectangular faces. I do have some with round faces, but sadly they don't work well so I rarely ever wear them. Nearly all of today's popular smartwatches are square-faced — Pebble, Gear 2, Qualcomm Toq, Sony Smartwatch 2 — so it's safe to say that it's a popular design choice. But what about watches like the Moto 360 that will feature a round face? I'm wondering if people will opt for a round face over square, or if square is where it's at.
If you think about mechanical watches it's quite the opposite too — more often than not they have round faces. I think as we move ahead we'll start to see more smartwatch offerings with round faces, something that isn't yet the norm in smartwatch land. I'm still undecided if I would prefer a round-face smartwatch the square ones that I'm used to. I think that with the arrival of the Moto 360 we'll start to see if that's the way things will go, or if device manufacturers will stick to what's been working so far.
So I'm curious to know just how many of you prefer round watches, and how many prefer square/rectangular ones? Let us know in the poll below, then drop a comment with your thoughts!
