There is a question on the main site about best smart watch to sync with a phone. I closed it as off topic, as my interpretation of the "gear and gadgets used during exercise" has been how to use the device in a fitness program.
There are some relevant meta questions already, but they still leave it with some ambiguity.
- Questions about fitness equipment
- Including fitness electronics and gadgets
- Are questions about Fitbit etc., considered off topic
The first two seem to be a blanket okay, the last gives a fairly uncertain interpretation that only their use in a fitness program was on topic.
I am open to discussing with the other moderators and defining the boundaries, but what I would not like to see is more questions along the lines of "My Samsung Gear is locked, how do I reset it?", "My Sole F63 needs a new motor, where can I get it?" and questions of a similar nature.
I think the question currently on the main would still be off topic, as it really isn't about the use of a fitness device, but rather asking what the best syncing smart device is. (Which would also fall under purchase recommendations).
However, if the general consensus is that this is an allowable type of question (As it does have an upvote), then it can be reopened and we can possibly amend the FAQ to have a better definition of what is and isn't allowed. Or if the community has recommendations about what they would like to see regarding fitness devices (Which would not just be fitness watches, although that is the subject of the current question.)
