Bluetooth sample apps

Connect to the power of Bluetooth low energy technology

You can recognize devices that implement Bluetooth low energy technology by looking for the Bluetooth Smart logo.

This app demonstrates how to interface with a Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitor. The application uses the standard Heart Rate Service (HRS), as specified by the Bluetooth SIG, to acquire and display data from the device.

This app demonstrates how to interface with a Bluetooth Smart key fob. Imagine a key fob that can be activated from your BlackBerry 10 device to produce alerts in the form of audible beeps and flashing LEDs to help you find your keys. The application uses the standard Find Me Profile (FMP) as specified by the Bluetooth SIG.

This app demonstrates how to interface with a Bluetooth Smart bicycle sensor. This is the type of device that cyclists typically attach to their bicycles to allow them to monitor information such as wheel and peddle revolutions or timing. The sensor must support the Cycling Speed and Cadence Profile (CSCP) as defined by the Bluetooth SIG.

This app discovers the Bluetooth capabilities (services and characteristics) of the connected device. You can even write new values to these attributes, allowing you to do some ad hoc Bluetooth connectivity testing without having to write any code.


Start a chat using Bluetooth wireless technology

This app demonstrates how to start a chat session with a remote device by using the Serial Port Profile (SPP). You can also use it to retrieve information about the Bluetooth adapter of the connected device, list all paired and discovered devices, and view the services provided by those devices.
