The definiteness of a term of degree is problematic if its baseline for comparison is unclear to those of ordinary skill in the art. Liberty Ammunition, Inc. v. United States, 835 F.3d 1388, 1395 (Fed. Cir. 2016). We especially take caution when presented with terms of degree following the Supreme Court's decision in Nautilus, Inc. v. Biosig Instruments, Inc., [572 U.S. 898], 134 S.Ct. 2120, 189 L.Ed.2d 37 (2014), which instructs that a claim must "inform those skilled in the art about the scope of the invention with reasonable certainty" to meet the definiteness requirement of 35 U.S.C. § 112, ¶
 2, id. at 2129. While our post-Nautilus cases indicate that terms of degree are not "inherently indefinite" in light of the Supreme Court's decision, we have recognized that claims having terms of degree will fail for indefiniteness unless they "provide objective boundaries for those of skill in the art" when read in light of the specification and the prosecution history. 

Id. at 1395-96, citing Interval Licensing LLC v. AOL, Inc., 766 F.3d 1364, 1370-71 (Fed. Cir. 2014).
