Question demarcation between high Re number and Low Re number

pdewcfd is on a distinguished road
what is the clear demarcation between Low Re number and High Re number? because if I don't know what is high and what is low, how do I decide what value of y+ to target.

For eg: I have flow inside cooling channels vs flow around a bike vs natural convection inside an enclosure,
what y+ to target where?

Please help.
