I agree with you whole-heartedly. We must also remember, however, that some wearables have succeeded for many years running on disposible batteries. I, of course, refer to hearing aids--the first successful wearable. Thanks for the thoughtful comment.

I agree with Becky Oh of PNI Sensors, energy harvesting has to come of age for making wearables worthy of usage. Single use batteries would be disasterous if the world's population were to start buying the gizmos en masse. I often wonder if the planet has enough natural resources to make batteries for gazillions of devices that are forecast to proliferate.
