Bluetooth (BLE)

What is Bluetooth?

BLE is a wireless communication technology designed for short-range data exchange with minimal power consumption. It’s commonly used in devices like fitness trackers, smartwatches, and IoT gadgets that prioritize battery life. BLE enables quick connections over short distances, making it ideal for various applications, including location services using beacons and smart home automation. Its key strengths lie in its energy efficiency and broad compatibility with modern devices.
