Apple Watch Can be Used to Control Hearing Aid

A hearing aid manufacturer offers an Apple Watch app that allows wearers control their hearing aids.

The Apple Watch's success depends on the apps like those on the iPhone. Apple launched the Apple Watch with support for over 3,000 apps, but there are still many to come. Today, a Danish hearing aid maker has announced an Apple Watch app that enables wearers to control their hearing aid.

This free app allows control of volume, treble and bass levels, pre-programmed settings for different places (local restaurant, café, sports stadium, office, home) and view of the setting selected, right from the wrist. The Apple Watch app is called ReSound Smart and is available now from the App Store.

ReSound calls this combination of audiology, connectivity, design and apps ‘Smart Hearing’. It delivers hearing aid wearers the most advanced and natural-hearing experience. The company already has an app on the market for the iPhone that could control its hearing aid products.


The Resound Apple Watch app is part of the new Resound Smart app version 3.0.1 available on iTunes.

About the Apple Watch
Apple Watch introduces a new design and iOS-based user interface created specifically for a smaller device. Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, a new way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a quick way to access Siri. The Retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to access controls within Apple Watch apps.

The Apple Watch introduces the Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel. Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. Besides the smart watch features the Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard when synching regularly with the iPhone.
The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order started on April 10 in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch started to ship on April 24.
