AUSTIN -- For this Tech Tuesday we have a round-up of new gear and rumored new gear headed our way.

First Apple's new iPhone 5S may be coming with a sibling, the iPhone 5C. The “C” stands for colors.  Various leaked photos indicate the phone will come in a variety of colors and the shell will be plastic instead of aluminum making it less expensive. It's probably going to start around $200. Look for it next month.

If you're looking for a little more jolt from your phone, check out the Yellow Jacket smartphone case. It's also a stun gun. It puts out 650 thousand volts. The company says it is enough to be painful but not harmful. Because all the extra juice, the case is also a back-up battery for your phone.

The Yellow Jacket goes for $140 and is only available right now for iPhone 4.  iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy cases are coming soon.

And speaking of Samsung Galaxy, the company may be about to beat Apple to market with a wearable smartphone watch.  The website T3 put together this unofficial rendering based on leaks and patents of the Galaxy Gear. It will be able to do almost everything your smartphone does and include a bendable screen so you can wear it or lay it flat. Samsung has not commented but has a media event scheduled September 4th.
