Getting started with Bluetooth LE

If you're completely new to Bluetooth Low Energy development (like me) there's a free starter kit (the software/docs side is free) available at

The peripheral hardware they use in the examples is Arduino based + a BLE shield but the concepts and host programming (Android, iOS and Windows phone) are as applicable to the MetaWear board as anything else. Of course MbientLab have kindly built Android and iOS APIs on top of the basic BLE stuff but I find it's worth knowing what goes on at lower levels too.



  • The TI Sensor tag ($25) and the codeplex TI sensor tag Windows API is a nice start for Windows "app" users.
