Bluetooth technology is evolving exponentially thanks to version 4.1. The new Bluetooth standard has been announced and is an important update to the wireless specification, helping improve co-existence with LTE as well as other enhancements. Let’s break it down for you:
- It’s engineered to work seamless with the latest cell phone technology–which means reduced interference and better connections.
- Manufacturers will have more control over creating and maintaining Bluetooth connections, improving the customer experience by allowing devices to reconnect to each other automatically when within range.
- Improved data transfer speed means faster, more reliable data going back and forth; for example, data gathered during a run, bike ride or swim will get sent back to your phone more quickly for instant analysis.
The new technology will be making its way to devices come the new year and will hopefully impact how consumers interact with devices such as smart watches, fitness sensors, and more.
