The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) said its forthcoming Bluetooth Core Specification version 4.0 has low-energy technology as a hallmark feature.

Expected to roll out by the end of the April-June quarter, Bluetooth v4.0 will feature a powerful low-energy mode.

This is designed to enable expansion of the technology in m-health, sports and fitness, security and home entertainment scenarios where button-cell battery devices proliferate.

Bluetooth SIG executive director Michael Foley said Bluetooth v4.0 is like three specifications in one – classic, low-energy, and high-speed– all which can be combined or used separately in different devices according to their functionality.
