I guess it might depend on the defenition of the word "toy". Maybe there's an age restriction to it etc. We can all look it up and find out who is the real winner of this argument. I can't really be bothered. Maybe you're right, and a kite is not a toy but a Woo is. I'm just surprised that some people appear to get almost emotional/angry trying to convince others of what is either just an opinion or simply verified by looking up the definition. And definately off topic.

You know the difference between a man and a boy? - Only their toys! :-)
For 99.99% of people kites are recreational equipment. Unless you are a pro kite boarder, making money of it - they are TOYS.
Same goes for Ferrari-es.. If you are not a pro racer or use it as a commute car - it's a TOY.
WOO is a toy for most except maybe Lewis G who makes money off it.
And it has nothing to do with precision, set of features etc - JUST HOW THE OBJECT IS USED.
You can't say WOO/PIQ/TRACE/XENSR is a toy just because it's not precise for your liking.. cause by same token LHC at CERN will be an even bigger toy.. Yes they pee of excitement whenever they get 25% experimental confirmation on what they expect...

Lots of opinions. Here are some facts (on 2 x Woo1 done back in 2015). Looks very consistent to me.

I really don't care if my "17m" (according to Woo2) is actually 15m. As long as all my 15m jumps show "17m", i.e. the devise is consistent between my jumps and other's, then you can compare.

Good clock example..
Well that clock will work perfectly for people on Caribbean islands as it will still do better than looking at sun, etc..
So yeah it will be useful for some if it's affordable enough. Not everyone needs nanosecond precision, you know..
You'd be probably surprised to know that most of expensive hand made tourbillon watches, selling for thousands $$$ have worse precision than that $5 electronic watch.. but "suckers" still buy them.
but back to your point: hand-crafted masterpieces aside, there is a correlation between price and performance. It's perfectly possible to create a height sensor with centimeter precision, but will you be willing to pay thousands of $$$ for it?
So Woo/Xensr/Piq picked the price /precision point where they thought most sales would be..
makes perfect sense to me..

What is the point of this discussion? With that reasoning people would probably also never buy a car, because it needs maintenance and breaks occasionally, but their $8 watch doesn't…
Don't feed the trolls.
