Unlock your phone when paired with a BT device using Smart Lock Features

Great little feature I use when running to keep my phone unlocked for easy access to my MyTracks stats etc. 
Go to the Settings icon > Security > Smart Lock > [confirm your PIN if required] > Trusted Devices > + Add a trusted device > choose Bluetooth > and select your paired Bluetooth device.

I pair my phone with my heart rate monitor, this way when I clip it on to it's chest strap it's active and my phone unlocks.  Once I finish my run I un-clip and the device is off and my phone returns to it's normal security preferences.
