    Does this code work with Android 6.0? I recently got a Band2 and the Microsoft Health app did not support Android 6 until an update in early December. I get a band not connected response with this demo even though the Band2 shows connected in the Microsoft Health app.

    The January 2016 SKD update fixes this issue with Bluetooth connectivity to Android 6.
