Watches to wear as a first year consultant / intern

What do first years typically wear for watches? Is a smart watch considered to be acceptable if you are on client site a lot? I also have a Seiko watch like this, but wasn't sure if this is more appropriate. Thanks for any input.

I can't imagine there's a common watch most people wear as first years lol. Smartwatches should be fine as long as it isn't a distraction due to notifications. The watch you hyperlinked should work too.
