Nokia and several partners are developing an ultra-low-power, short-range wireless technology aimed at extending personal-area networking (PANs) to really low-power devices, including watches, heart-rate monitors, and other "button cell battery" devices. The companies expect to release the first commercial "Wibree" interoperability specification by Q2, 2007.
