    I have new hearing aids, and a watch. The hearing aids connect separately. So when I connect them, it uses two connections. My watch is a third. One of my hearing aids keeps dropping out. I thought I could have three simultaneous working connections? Does anyone else have this problem, or know how to solve it?

    Is three the limit?

    You may be able to control the number of bluetooth devices in developers options.

    Nope. No cigar. No such listing. Lots of bluetooth stuff, but not that one. I have 6 connections. I have three active, but one drops out about every few minutes..

    Hit model number six times to activate developer tools.

    I was in developer tools. Nothing about the number of connections.

    Do you still have your 'old' hearing aids?

    Wonder if they do not have this issue.

    Did the problem start when you got the new hearing aids or when you got the watch?

    One of the items is pulling rank and disconnecting the one.

    I use hearing aids with my S21 Ultra. They are connected to my phone using BLE (BlueTooth Low Energy) and not the BT that my smartwatch is using. That feature is turned on in my settings.
    Settings/Accessibility/Hearing Enhancements/Hearing Aid Support/Bluetooth Hearing Aids.
    Then in my aid's associated app there is a option to pair the aids to my phone. Following the prompts married my hearing aids to my phone.
    I hope this helps. You may have documentation on the given procedure for your particular brand/model of aids and if you can't successfully connect them to your phone I would suggest contacting your audiologist. They should connect and you will enjoy the feature.

    My Old ha did not use Bluetooth. I got the watch a day old two after the ha, and the problem had already started I think.

    My Phonax when streaming has like a third conceal one just for streaming, so probably forgot to synch it up.

    My Audiologist set them up. I got my watch the next day the smartwatch but the hearing aids were already dropping out either one or both usually one. When I go to the settings in the area you're talking about I only have two options one is to let the phone adjust to the hearing aids better than the other one since they're already installed and with the app it goes to that app so I can adjust them no way to connect my Bluetooth light or low energy rather.

    Do your aids have an associated app that can be had from the Play Store? My Resound have an app that will insure both aids are connected to the phone. If I don't boot the app I will occasionally have an aid drop connection. One will drop and then connect and the other might drop out at some point. Mine do not stay connected to the phone without turning the app on. It only effects streaming and direct connect on phone calls. Once the app has been initiated it will show each aid connection and there is never a problem from that point on.

    The app is a great tool all it's own. It will allow the changing of environments for my aids as well as adjust volume and balance. It even has a mini equalizer to adjust high/midrange/base.

    I reread your last post and realize that your aids are connected. If you are seeing the option to change volume in the left and right aid in the phone settings... they are connected. My only other suggestion would be to disconnect that pairing which you should see that option also in the phone settings we were discussing. Once disconnected, once again pair them with your phone. I can't begin to know why all marriages aren't created equal and can't promise a second connection will be better than the first. However, I have been cheated out of BT features on ear buds only to have them work with a new pairing. It's worthy of a try. I would be in contact with your audiologist if all fails. I do not think that your S21 is the problem. Good luck.
