What is Bluetooth 4.0?

Bluetooth 4.0 is officially referred to as "Bluetooth Smart" by Bluetooth itself, but most smartphone manufacturers refer to is by its numeric designation due to the different versions of Bluetooth Smart.  It is also referred to as Bluetooth Low Energy.  Bluetooth 4.0 is the leading technology in wearable devices due to its ability to run on small coin cell batteries for a long time, sometimes many years.
