It's a really nice article, love it. It helped me to know more about the device.
I also have a fit bit and it works great, However there are some things i dont understand.
As it usages a NRF8001 and it is a Bluetooth Low Energy, So how is it able to sync with Dongle as well as the smart phone's? Is it the Dongle which helping to do this? Is the dongle Dual mode, so that it can talk with Classic Bluetooth as well as Low Power?
Also when i plug in the dongle in my laptop i dont see it as a normal bluetooth device it appears as a human interface device in device manager. Isn't the dongle a bluetooth device? If yes why doesn't it show up as a bluetooth device?
I am really curious about it and looking forward to hear from someone.
