The key to unlocking wearable computing

Better battery technology lies at the heart of taking wearable devices mainstream and a little push from the likes of Apple and Samsung won't hurt either.

Longer-lasting batteries are crucial for a new crop of wearable computers whose rise may upend Apple and Google's dominance of mobile devices, according to two of the field's pioneers.

Wearable devices - from bracelets that monitor physical activity and sleeping patterns to clothing with built-in sensors and web-ready glasses - may mark the next big technology shift, just as smartphones evolved from personal computers.
