The Role of BLE in Wearable Technology

What is wearable?

Wearable Devices Specifics

  1. Pair with other IoT devices;
  2. Work well in a mesh network.
  3. Function a long time without charging.
  4. Be low-cost.
  5. Be small.
  6. Have a significant level of security.
  • BLE (or Smart Ready) host is already available on smartphones.
  • Developed with ultra-low power consumption in mind.
  • BLE chips are small, the battery is small too. This reduces the cost, size, and weight of the product.
  • BLE 4.2 specification provides improved security requirements.
  • BLE Mesh is developed.
