Before Apple's big event, Samsung and LG tease new smartwatches

Perhaps Samsung and LG are worried Apple might reveal an iWatch? Both companies promote updated smartwatches -- the Samsung Gear S and the LG G Watch R -- even though each just launched new models last month.

Apple may have something "more" than an iPhone 6 to show off on Sept. 9. But before Apple's event, Samsung and LG are revealing brand new smartwatches -- even though both companies just launched new smartwatches last month in July. Could this be a sign of iWatch panic?

Today's CNET Update video highlights the Samsung Gear S and LG G Watch R. But that's not the only new tech before Apple's event: Dyson may have a robot vacuum to show off next week.
