Audéo Fit has a heart rate sensor that can track the body’s health data which can be viewed with the myPhonak app. By tacking heart rate, steps and activity levels it is believed these hearing aids can promote healthy habits.

Phonak Audéo Fit runs on the PRISM (Processing Real-time Intelligent Sound Management) chip and includes new motion sensors in the rechargeable version.
The chip runs the new AutoSense 4.0 software. AutoSense constantly scans the listening environment and fine tunes the audio with up to 200 adjustments for an optimised listening experience.
Motion sensors will detect when the user is stationary or in motion and then automatically adjusts the microphones and the dynamic noise reduction system to maximise speech intelligibility.
Speech Enhancer is designed to enhance one-on-one conversations when people maybe speaking softly by providing more gain on the soft input speech signals.
The new Dynamic Noise Cancellation system employs a directional beamformer when users are trying to understand speech in a loud environment. The new system works in combination with Phonak’s adaptive beamformer as well as the motion sensor.
