I'm looking for an IoT device which has Bluetooth, GPS, a USB port and which can support a module for an alarm. The end product is a wearable device therefore the device should be small.

It should be something like an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi. The size should be as small as possible but it should be compatible with all the above mentioned features.

    What sort of device are you specifically looking for? To be able to answer this, you should really specify exactly what type of device you want (do you want a board that you can program and put into a case?). Do you also know more exact dimensions that you need to help narrow down the search?

SIMCOM SIM808 module seems to meet the requirements for your device.

Bluetooth: compliant with 3.0+EDR

Specification for GPS

Receiver type

  • 22 tracking /66 acquisition -channel
  • GPS L1 C/A code


  • Tracking: -165 dBm
  • Cold starts : -147 dBm


  • Cold starts: 30s (typ.)
  • Hot starts: 1s (typ.)
  • Warm starts: 28s (typ.)


  • Horizontal position : <2.5m CEP

USB interface

Moreover, as you are planning for a wearable device, it offers following advantages:

  • Dimensions: 24.0*24.0*2.6mm
  • Weight: 3.30g
  • Low power consumption
  • Supply voltage range 3.4 ~ 4.4V
  • 2
    Side note: special attention should payed when buying this module, because some of them has only GSM/GPRS support by default and firmware upgrade is needed to enable Bluetooth or/and GPS functionalities. Apr 20, 2018 at 15:27

Shameless plug In about a years time you can get an nRF91 + nRF52840 combo. LTE(CATM1 and NbIoT), GPS, BLE, USB, 802.15.4, etc, that uses a fraction of the power of current devices, and got plenty of µC-resources to spare.
