Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) is the driving force behind the wearable devices market, featuring lower power consumption and greater compatibility with mobile operating systems like iOS, watchOS, Android, and others. For years, Bluetooth LE has powered wearable devices like fitness trackers, smartwatches, and wristbands that are showing up on wrists everywhere to monitor steps, exercise, activity, and sleep. Wearable devices have become a big part of our lives.

If a wearable device has Bluetooth LE support, naturally and theoretically, it can work as a part of Bluetooth mesh network. Currently, most Bluetooth mesh provisioners are smartphones, tablets, and AI speakers. Giving wearables the capability to act as Bluetooth mesh provisioners will further diversify provisioner choices.

Imagine a scenario where you lift your wrist, tap an app on your wearable device, make it scan the unprovisioned devices nearby, and provision them for the Bluetooth mesh networks in your home or office. That would be very cool. Well, now you can.

This recently released study guide, How to Make Wearables Bluetooth® Mesh Provisioners, introduces a combination of Bluetooth mesh and wearable devices: showing you how to make a wearable device, such as an Apple watch, work as a Bluetooth mesh provisioner. This study guide gives developers insight into how wearable devices could serve as potential Bluetooth mesh provisioners, provisioning unprovisioned devices as Bluetooth mesh nodes. It includes the source code on watchOS platform and a tutorial on how to set it up.

Bluetooth developers, don’t hesitate, download and enjoy!
