The new Apple Watch™ is pretty cool. With it, you can send and receive messages, make speakerphone calls, track your fitness and heart rate, listen to music wirelessly with Bluetooth® devices, pay for things, and run apps like a mini iPhone®. Oh, and it tells the time, too.
So what does the Apple Watch have to do with Hearing Solution Centers and your hearing aids?
Funny you should ask.
As of May 1, 2015, the hearing aid app that pairs with our AGXSP made-for-iPhone hearing aids, called TruLink™ (the software that controls your hearing aids, and is only available to those in the Tulsa area at Hearing Solution Centers) will also be available for the Apple Watch. I have been wearing the AGXSP hearing aid series since their inception, and I recently told my wife that I would probably have to replace my own failing watch with the Apple Watch — because of the TruLink app, of course.
Currently the AGXSP series is compatible with the TruLink app on an iPhone 5 or newer. The TruLink being available on the Apple Watch means I won’t have to pull my phone out of my back pocket to adjust my AGXSP hearing aids. I can just look down at my wrist instead. Did you ever imagine a time when your wristwatch could control your hearing aids?
