Bluetooth Low Energy — also known as Bluetooth Smart — is a major release of the Bluetooth standard designed to optimize energy consumption and speed to work with extremely low power applications. Bluetooth Low Energy also simplifies the user experience by circumventing the typical process of having to pair through the host device’s Bluetooth settings before the application — with BLE the user need only pair through the application itself. However, this improvement does not come without some drawbacks; BLE sacrifices range to achieve faster speeds (up to 10 times faster than other Bluetooth profiles) and decreased energy consumption.
