You're right, there is a grey area (even if there are some formal definitions, it is still maybe early to be definitive). One key point about some wearables (in contrast to a smartphone) is that they rely on a 2nd device (such as a phone) to enable features. Both for configuration, and as a proxy to connect to the internet. It is this machine-to-machine ...

However that is nearly never the case. With obstacles, reflections, multipath, and more, there's significant variation in the observed RSSI. ...
