The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly with more and more devices connected to the Internet. Among IoT devices, wearable devices have become an important category due to their wide applicability. However, most of the wearable products are designed to provide fixed services; once they are deployed, their functionality is difficult to change. In this research we develop new technologies that would enable the OTA (Over-The-Air) provisioning over BLE for the wearable devices. We use the method of Interworking Proxy Application Entity (IPE) defined in oneM2M to enable the OTA provisioning. Our experimental results show that the IPE method is an effective mechanism to support the OTA provisioning for wearable devices.
