 This is a mental model of where music could live within the Microsoft Band architecture. Music would be considered a temporal tile as it would only appear on the band when music has been initiated from the phone. Below are several alternative mental models and possibilities of where / how users could access music on the band.

 Concept 5 was the most promising. It allowed music to appear amongst the different activities that the Microsoft Band has without disrupting those experiences. Music would live to the left of the various screens.
 On the band start tile, a note would appear in the top left corner indicating that music lives to the left. users could then swipe from left to right to access the music tile.
 The music tile would contain the artist and title of the current song playing as well as skip forward, back and Play/Pause. to the left users could access volume controls
