When I set 1500 as fine_timer_interval of BLE_PROFILE_CFG, appFineTimerCb is called every 1 sec.

Is 1000 maximum value for this timer?

I have another question.

The difference between normal timer and fine timer is only resolution.

Is my understanding correct?

Id like to have detailed API documents.

I confirmed with the developers that setting the fine timer to anything larger than 1500 will result in 1 callback per second. 

The reasonable values for this setting are 12-1000.

In addition, the Bluetooth LE stack supports two free running timers.  The normal timer has a resolution of one second while the fine timer can be configured in the device configuration to be as low as 12 milliseconds.

With reference to your request, which of the included profiles are you working with when attempting to set the fine timer value to 1500ms?

I ask because in certain profiles like the ROM based Blood_Pressure_Monitor_Plus, the value is set to 1000ms for fine_timer_interval (below)

BLE_PROFILE_CFG blebpm_mod_cfg =

{

    /*.fine_timer_interval            =*/ 1000, // ms

However, in looking through other ROM based profiles like Proximity_Plus and Health_Thermometer_Plus, the value is set to 500ms per the comments in BLE_PROFILE_CFG.

The only API documentation available is linked within the SDK install under DocAPIindex.html

There was only a limited amount of information available on the timers, so I will ask the software team and get back to you with an answer.

Specifically, related to fine_timer_interval I will ask the question whether or not the difference between this timer and the normal timer based on resolution only.
