Guide on pairing hearing aids with your smartwatch

While hearing aids and smartwatches with Bluetooth are usually compatible, there are several factors to consider when attempting to pair them. For example, smartwatches need to support specific features for seamless integration. If a smartwatch includes an A2DP profile, it allows the hearing aid wearer to listen to music, while if a smartwatch with an HFP profile, it facilitates making phone calls through the hearing aid. In these instances, users can conveniently adjust their hearing aids directly from their smartwatch.

  1. On your Apple Watch, open Settings, then go to Bluetooth.
  2. Reboot the hearing aids and bring them closer to the watch.
  3. Click on the name of the device to connect them to your Apple Watch.
  4. Once it appears connected, you can start using all the functions of the watch, such as making phone calls or listening to music with the sound coming directly into the hearing aids.

With your Android device

Here's how to pair your hearing aids with your Android device (Android 10.0 or later):

  1. On your Android device, open Settings.
  2. Click on Connected Devices, then click on Associate New Device.

  4. If you have more than one hearing aid: wait for the first device to connect, then click on the other hearing aid in the list of available devices.

Please note that these steps might vary depending on the type, brand, and model of your hearing aids.

How-to guide

Bluetooth is a secure short-range radio technology that enables data transmission wirelessly between devices.

To use this feature, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on both your hearing aids and the device you wish to connect to.
