It’s common knowledge that physical activity is good for our health, right? You may have heard that walking 10,000 steps a day can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, 13 types of cancer, and even dementia. You may also be aware that biking and other aerobic exercise can additionally help protect against cardiovascular disease, plus diabetes and mental illness.
The list, of course, goes on.
But let’s face it: Sometimes, in the moments before we throw on our walking shoes or bike helmets, we need just a little more encouragement. And recent research is pointing to the fitness tracker as the perfect motivator for the job: Whether it’s a wearable device or smartphone app, did you know that a fitness tracker can increase your steps per day by more than a mile (1.6 kilometers)—especially if you set a daily goal?
Now, for the best news of all: Our Genesis AI hearing aids can also serve as your own personal fitness trackers. Starkey was the first in the industry to build hearing aids with sensors that can count your steps and monitor other exercise like biking, aerobics, and more. By connecting your hearing aids to the My Starkey app, you can easily track these activities plus set goals for yourself—with helpful insights to guide you along the way.
So, not only are you able to hear better, but also live better.

Reaping the rewards of better hearing and overall health has never been easier.
