Class Overview

Public API for Bluetooth Health Profile.

BluetoothHealth is a proxy object for controlling the Bluetooth Service via IPC.

How to connect to a health device which is acting in the source role.

  • Use getProfileProxy(Context, BluetoothProfile.ServiceListener, int) to get the BluetoothHealth proxy object.
  • Create an BluetoothHealth callback and call registerSinkAppConfiguration(String, int, BluetoothHealthCallback) to register an application configuration
  • Pair with the remote device. This currently needs to be done manually from Bluetooth Settings
  • Connect to a health device using connectChannelToSource(BluetoothDevice, BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration). Some devices will connect the channel automatically. The BluetoothHealth callback will inform the application of channel state change.
  • Use the file descriptor provided with a connected channel to read and write data to the health channel.
  • The received data needs to be interpreted using a health manager which implements the IEEE 11073-xxxxx specifications.
  • When done, close the health channel by calling disconnectChannel(BluetoothDevice, BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration, int) and unregister the application configuration calling unregisterAppConfiguration(BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration)

    Public Methods

    public boolean connectChannelToSource (BluetoothDevice device, BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration config)

    Added in API level 14

    Connect to a health device which has the SOURCE_ROLE. This is an asynchronous call. If this function returns true, the callback associated with the application configuration will be called.

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

    Parameters
    device BluetoothDevice: The remote Bluetooth device.
    config BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration: The application configuration which has been registered using registerSinkAppConfiguration(String, int, BluetoothHealthCallback)
    Returns
    boolean If true, the callback associated with the application config will be called.

    public boolean disconnectChannel (BluetoothDevice device, BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration config, int channelId)

    Added in API level 14

    Disconnect a connected health channel. This is an asynchronous call. If this function returns true, the callback associated with the application configuration will be called.

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

    Parameters
    device BluetoothDevice: The remote Bluetooth device.
    config BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration: The application configuration which has been registered using registerSinkAppConfiguration(String, int, BluetoothHealthCallback)

    boolean If true, the callback associated with the application config will be called.

    public List<BluetoothDevice> getConnectedDevices ()

    Added in API level 14

    Get connected devices for the health profile.

    Return the set of devices which are in state STATE_CONNECTED

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission. This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of the local Bluetooth adapter for this profile. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of the local adapter.

    Returns
    List<BluetoothDevice> List of devices. The list will be empty on error.

    public int getConnectionState (BluetoothDevice device)

    Added in API level 14

    Get the current connection state of the profile.

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission. This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of the local Bluetooth adapter with the remote device. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of the local adapter.

    Parameters
    device BluetoothDevice: Remote bluetooth device.
    Returns
    int State of the profile connection. One of STATE_CONNECTED, STATE_CONNECTING, STATE_DISCONNECTED, STATE_DISCONNECTING

    public List<BluetoothDevice> getDevicesMatchingConnectionStates (int[] states)

    Added in API level 14

    Get a list of devices that match any of the given connection states.

    If none of the devices match any of the given states, an empty list will be returned.

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission. This is not specific to any application configuration but represents the connection state of the local Bluetooth adapter for this profile. This can be used by applications like status bar which would just like to know the state of the local adapter.

    Parameters
    states int: Array of states. States can be one of STATE_CONNECTED, STATE_CONNECTING, STATE_DISCONNECTED, STATE_DISCONNECTING,

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

    Its the responsibility of the caller to close the ParcelFileDescriptor when done.

    Parameters
    device BluetoothDevice: The remote Bluetooth health device
    config BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration: The application configuration
    Returns
    ParcelFileDescriptor null on failure, ParcelFileDescriptor on success.

    public boolean registerSinkAppConfiguration (String name, int dataType, BluetoothHealthCallback callback)

    Added in API level 14

    Register an application configuration that acts as a Health SINK. This is the configuration that will be used to communicate with health devices which will act as the SOURCE_ROLE.

    Parameters
    name String: The friendly name associated with the application or configuration.
    dataType int: The dataType of the Source role of Health Profile to which the sink wants to connect to.

    Added in API level 14

    Unregister an application configuration that has been registered using registerSinkAppConfiguration(String, int, BluetoothHealthCallback)

    Requires BLUETOOTH permission.

    Parameters
    config BluetoothHealthAppConfiguration: The health app configuration
    Returns
    boolean Success or failure.
