The more we move, the better, says Agus. According to this chart, hairdressers and typists are much more likely to die than gardeners. Oops.

The iOS app shows a variety of stats to keep you on track toward your goal.

If you don't have an iOS device, you can use the FuelBand Web site. Again, there's no Android support.
