James Bond never had it so good. For those who are hard of hearing, Phonak has created the WatchPilot, a remote-control watch that adjusts the volume on hearing aids. The WatchPilot, in men's and ladies' styles, is a timepiece with four hearing-aid control buttons. However, the WatchPilot is designed only for Phonak's Claro digital hearing aid. WatchPilot costs $700, while Claro hearing aids start at about $3,000. Information:
