It's very simply really:

1. Battery life that lasts for more than a day of heavy usage. Preferably more than two days.

2. Qi wireless charging with a smooth back plate and two Qi chargers in the box (work and home).

3. Standalone capability. Why answer or make a call with my watch if I still need my phone?

4. Round face, bezelless design, switchable bands, metal build (Moto 360+1?).

5. Complete control over screen brightness, timeout, ambient mode etc.

Let me know what you need to have before you buy a smartwatch.

You mention about the most important topic. I totally agree with you. I think Modular smart watch would be the best option for you. It is available in round and square face. You can also add extra block on boost your battery life.

After Smart phones, Smart watches are also a becoming necessary thing in daily life
Soon we have to ammend the basic necessary requirement of humans from food, cloth and shelter to
food, cloth, shelter,Smart phone, Smart watch and internet lol :D

For me smart watch should have more sensors, camera, good batery life, water proof and can even have solar panel in it, it would be great to get it charged a littel bit if u need it through sun

It's very simply really:

1. Battery life that lasts for more than a day of heavy usage. Preferably more than two days. LG Watch R & Urban has 2 days easily

2. Qi wireless charging with a smooth back plate and two Qi chargers in the box (work and home). *With 2 or more days battery why did you need 2nd charger for work? *

3. Standalone capability. Why answer or make a call with my watch if I still need my phone? With a bluetooth hands-free maybe, but without... Where is my privacy? But you can make it with LG Watch Urban LTE

4. Round face, bezelless design, switchable bands, metal build (Moto 360+1?). LG ones again

5. Complete control over screen brightness, timeout, ambient mode etc.I'll thank's here more privacy card preview

I think Modular smart watch fulfill all of your requirements.
Now it is at crowdfunding stage on Kickstarter. It comes with around face and you have full control over all the features.
