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.

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.
