Bluetooth SIG Forms New Fitness Working Group
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group today announced the creation of the Sports and Fitness Working Group.

All the sensors and devices involved in the effort with use the Bluetooth 4.0 specification, which allows them to operate on small batteries but still share information in real time. The Sports and Fitness Working Group is accepting new members. The working group may eventually yield news use scenarios for fitness-related sensors and mobile devices.
