Samsung SDI reveals curved battery for wearables
The new Samsung battery features a process to increase the energy density of the battery, which is required in such a small cell. The goal for Sammy with the wearable batteries is to pack enough power to run a device like the Gear Fit, but in as small a size as possible. At the same time, the battery has to be flexible to a point. This is why the tech titan's V bending technology is used in the production of the cell, along with new lamination technology.

Didn't Apple patent curved batteries?
I know it sounds like a joke, but: US20130108907
Maybe a wearable is not considered portable. (let's hope)

Apple will even patent the heat rate monitor

They patented something which they won't produce EVER but they patented it nonetheless. It's probably for trolling purposes anyway since that is all they do now.

More likely Apple stole the idea and filed the patent first. That is how it works in the US now.

Samsung emailed me that the battery replacement will be sold at $55. Now that is a rip off if ever I heard.
