Features

linmctool - Linux motion-sensing controller tool : http://www.pabr.org/linmctool/linmctool.en.html
This suggests that two samples are sent per input report. The same effect can be observed with the accelerometers and gyros (but not with the magnetometers). The sampling rate is about 175 Hz.

Homodyne measurement of Earth's rotation with a motion-sensing videogame controller and a record player : http://www.pabr.org/copernitron/copernitron.en.html
we noticed a peak at 88 Hz in the noise spectrum. This suggests that the two samples in each Bluetooth packet are processed differently.
Gyroscope data transmitted over Bluetooth suggests a sampling rate of about 176 Hz
