The Role of BLE in Wearable Technology

The IoT segment, and wearable devices as an important part of it, now urgently needs to unify protocols and standards for communications. Today there are 10+ solutions that claim to be good solutions for the Internet of Things space. But Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is the most likely to remain as the de-facto standard for data transfer for wearable devices that aim to be energy efficient.

Limitations of BLE in Wearables

The Bluetooth low energy is perfect technology for wearables because it is very energy efficient and inexpensive to boot. The BLE modules are tiny. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group Bluetooth SIG’s v4.2 and the new v5 specifications declare some excellent security requirements.

Bluetooth Low Energy for Bluetooth in Smart Wearable Technology

Bluetooth Low Energy has two important features: this technology has been developed for low energy consumption and a chip (or module) is much smaller than the classical Bluetooth chipset. BLE reduces device’s cost, size, and weight.

Case: Wearable accessories and Google Fit API

Creating quality device, that will captivate users, is not enough in today’s market. Each piece of hardware should be backed by useful, feature rich, visually stunning, user-friendly software that allows users to explore your device’s full potential.
