BlueBeacon Bangle

BlueBeacon Bangle is a wearable battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon based on nRF52832 SoC. It simultaneously supports multiple technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode). It also supports the new Safety packet.
BlueBeacon Bangle is designed for children and hospital patients identification and tracking: weatherproof case, replaceable coin CR2032 battery, alarm button, leds.
It is provided with a disposable replaceable vinyl bracelet with NFC tag.

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueBeacon devices uses iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications

Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines BLE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Forte is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.

BlueBeacon Bangle is compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System, a powerful technology platform for novel location based services and applications. It enables real-time tracking of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) smart tags and devices, with accuracy even down to a few centimeters.
