ReSound, the Danish hearing aid manufacturer, has launched the first app that allows hearing aid wearers to control their instrument from their new Apple Watch.  This is the latest in Smart Hearing – with the most discrete control available anywhere.

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 their wrist.  The app is called ReSound Smart™ and is available now from the App Store.

This development in hearing aid technology, connectivity and control follows swiftly on from the launch last year by ReSound of the world’s first made for iPhone hearing aid – ReSound LiNX.

“ReSound will continue to introduce cutting edge technology for its latest range of digital hearing aids,” comments GN ReSound UK’s managing director David Nygren.  “ReSound partners with leading innovators to bring the best in connectivity, control and functionality to its aid wearers.  They are not known as the smartest hearing aids in the world for nothing.”

ReSound calls this combination of audiology, connectivity, design and apps ‘Smart Hearing’.  It delivers hearing aid wearers the most advanced and natural hearing experience.

Consumers can get immediate access to the ReSound Smart app for Apple Watch by visiting the App Store and downloading the latest version of the ReSound Smart app (3.0.1).  More information about ReSound’s portfolio of smart hearing aids can be accessed by visiting
