Using it as a Music Controller:

Imagine how cool it would be if you had a feature in your fitness tracker which allowed you to change music right from the tracker. Well, Fitbit Surge does have this feature, it costs a whopping 20,000. Well thanks to an app called MI Band 2 Func Button by XTracer, you can use your MI Band 2 as a music controller.

You can download the app from the link below:

To configure it is easy. You have to just assign functions for the way you tap it or when you lift your wrist.

But there’s a catch…

In the free version, the amount of clicks is limited (around 100-150). You can buy the full version for Rs. 85.

But there is a workaround to this problem. Reinstalling the app gets you back the clicks.
