Bluetooth Smart is expanding fast in GPS watches and heart rate monitors replacing the ANT+ standard rapidly in 2014, says the Heart Rate Watch Company.
Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) March 16, 2014
The use of Bluetooth Smart as an inter-device communication platform in GPS watches has grown rapidly in the past year according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.
“Just as we predicted over two years ago, Bluetooth Smart is beginning to rise to prominence as the dominant platform for fitness electronics,” says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, “Bluetooth Smarts longer battery life and ability to communicate with Smartphones has driven that adoption.”
New For 2014
Polar V800 is a new GPS triathlon watch from Polar that will be embedded with Bluetooth Smart for 2014. Garmin fenix 2 is the new do-it-all outdoor watch from Garmin and it will also have Bluetooth Smart but pairs it with ANT+ for heart rate as Garmin clings to both standards.
“Notably absent from Bluetooth Smart adoption so far is Suunto but we would expect them to roll over this year,” says Squire. He adds, “The new Polar Loop activity tracker also uses Bluetooth Smart.”
The Reason For Bluetooth Smart
“The real reason for Bluetooth Smart is energy conservation and the ability to communicate with your Smartphone,” says Squire. He adds, “It bridges the gap between watch data gathered from GPS satellites and the Smartphone data network thereby making your data accessible to others who have password protected access.”
Next Challenge – Batteries
Lithium ion rechargeable batteries have powered energy consuming GPS watches from the beginning and a large improvement in this technology is needed to power the next generation of watches according to Squire. “Getting a power source that will top 24 hours at one second recording intervals is the next challenge for the entire industry,” says Squire.
“Want to know which GPS watches with Bluetooth Smart are best for your needs or outdoor sporting requirements?” asks Squire. He adds, “Simply call us at 866-586-7129 because we test and use all these products and can give you the kind of advice that only a real user can share.”
