I would like to find an Arduino with built-in Bluetooth. I know about the HC-06, the shields and the other Bluetooth modules, but i would like to have built in Bluetooth for eliminating the risk for miscommunication on the serial port.

The official Arduino foundation did produce an board but it's retired now.

  • Wow! Look what I found on GOOGLE! :) – KingDuken Mar 24 '17 at 13:48
  • By the way, how could miscommunication on a Bluetooth shield be any different from miscommunication on an integrated Bluetooth for a board? – KingDuken Mar 24 '17 at 13:50

    Yeah i know what google is. Why it would be better? Less moving parts, well tested board. If you think its an dumb question dont answer then. There are plenty of other post waiting for your knowledge. – Sigma Mar 24 '17 at 14:52

    @Sigma - If a board becomes a moving part, you need to check your soldering :D – Code Gorilla Mar 24 '17 at 15:07

    What about using an ESP32 with integrated BT? – Code Gorilla Jan 19 '18 at 10:15

Arduino has just released a MKR WIFI 1010 board that includes an ESP32 module that allows bluetooth connectivity. It's mainly an internet of things board but it supports both bluetooth low energy, BLE, and wifi.

  • Yes Im using that one, great board. – Sigma Dec 15 '18 at 9:26

There is this board called Bluno Its an Arduino UNO Based board with built in Bluetooth 4.0

Bluno - An Arduino Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) Board

This is my currently favourite Arduino compatible board: https://wiki.wemos.cc/products:d32:d32

ESP32 is great: offers both wi-fi, Bluetooth and BLE connection as well as lots of GPIO. 9 GPIO's can be used as capacitive touch sensors (it has 10, but only 9 are available).

    This is also a great option. – Sigma Mar 15 at 9:58
