I believe an oval is an extended circle .. each rounded end is drawn with a single focus, the focii being separated by some distance.

An ellipse is a specific geometric shape. It's the shape of a circle viewed on an angle (such as looking at the top of a glass from various angles).

In my opinion, an ellipse is a much more pleasing shape to look at, being a natural shape.
