Bluetooth is a way to connect and transfer information between things like cell phones, laptops and PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles using radio frequencies securely.
According to the official Bluetooth site, “Bluetooth wireless technology is a short-range communications technology intended to replace the cables connecting portable and/or fixed devices while maintaining high levels of security. The key features of Bluetooth technology are robustness, low power, and low cost. The Bluetooth specification defines a uniform structure for a wide range of devices to connect and communicate with each other.”

Unlike traditional radio waves, Bluetooth waves typically can only travel 33 feet or less
Types of Bluetooth:
Bluetooth is used is mobile phones, headsets, headphones, MP3 players, computers, boom boxes, laptops, computer mice, GPS units, and car stereos. Almost any Bluetooth device can be paired with another Bluetooth device in order to exchange information.
The operating range depends on the device class:
Class 3 radios – have a range of up to 1 meter or 3 feet
Class 2 radios – most commonly found in mobile devices – have a range of 10 meters or 30 feet
Class 1 radios – used primarily in industrial use cases – have a range of 100 meters or 300 feet
The most commonly used radio is Class 2 and uses 2.5 mW of power. Bluetooth technology is designed to have very low power consumption. This is reinforced in the specification by allowing radios to be powered down when inactive.
1 Mbps for Version 1.2; Up to 3 Mbps supported for Version 2.0 + EDR
