I figure I can cut them out using 2 different sized circle cutters, but how do you get the rounded edges?

As you said, I would cut a very thick "donut" out of fondant and simply use my fingers to shape and round out the edges. Also, you could roll a thick log and form the preserver, if you plan to put ropes/bands on the preserver, one could go over the seam.

How big do you need it? I did these with gumpaste and a 1.25" cutter. Rounded edges with my fingers.

I would do this using the same method I use for bagels. Roll yourself a nice ball of fondant then poke your finger through the center so it's hanging off your finger like a fat ring. This way you don't have to worry about seams and you get the nice round edges.
