Key Use Cases








SPORTS & FITNESS

Bluetooth is responsible for enabling wearables like fitness trackers and smart watches that are showing up on wrists everywhere to monitor steps, exercise, activity, and sleep. These devices track fitness levels and athletic performance and use Bluetooth technology to communicate that information in real-time to athletes, coaches, and trainers.

PC PERIPHERALS & ACCESSORIES

A driving force behind Bluetooth is freeing you from wires. From laptops to smartphones, the devices you interface with each day rapidly evolve. Whether it’s a keyboard, trackpad, or mouse, thanks to Bluetooth, you no longer need wires to stay connected.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

Blood glucose monitors, pulse oximeters, asthma inhalers, and other wearable medical devices use Bluetooth technology to help administer medication, diagnose injuries, and transmit critical information securely from patients to providers.
