What screen-width for 'smart-watches'?

GJim
I just finished converting my own site, and two client sites to be
'mobile-friendly', with transition screen widths of 768 px and 420 px, and a
minimum width of 300 px.

Are these sufficient for smart-watches, or should I define another transition
and minimum width?

I don't have a smart-watch nor access to one.

Thanks.

I believe the width of the smallest Apple Watch is 267px.
You'll have to google it to get the exact size.
Not positive off hand.

Best,

Are there any “smart-watches” that ship with a web browser? Apple’s watch certainly does not; no idea about other brands. I know some Korean companies (LG) have been contributing to the CSS WG to develop a spec for round displays [1], but I think their purpose is more for building apps.

Anyway, for the widest possible gamut of displays / window-width, don’t constrain yourself by forcing a minimum width, particularly on your main layout.
