Hi, 

> We are looking at adding a socket connection to the BT device. That would handle communication with sensors onboard the device that cannot be handled by BT itself. 

Referring to current pair of Smart Phone and Smart Watch, 
1. what related to BT is what BT Web API can be provided by Web App to develop BLE profiles and SPP (serial port profile) based on BT socket. 
That is used to communicate between phone and watch. (I guess you mean this) 

2. and how does Web App in smart watch get sensor data via Web API? Maybe this is the one Arpita asked for and I am interesting too.

We are looking at adding a socket connection to the BT device. That would handle communication with sensors onboard the device that cannot be handled by BT itself.
