Wearable display market is a consistently growing field to handle a smart device with ease. Wearable display is an efficient device that can show the information to the user. In this paper, propose the scheme of a wearable display using LED and implement it including controlling remotely with BLE. Traditional outdoor LED display requires the dedicated controller and its software. Therefore, to control those LED display, it should implement a driver and its own way of communication. The proposed method is to ensure the independence and extensibility by separating driver module and communication module for controlling LED display. In addition, by adopting a short-range communication with Bluetooth 4.0 and a LED driver with low-power technology, it can be showed to control system configuration and display with a smart device.
