transmitted by his Apple watch. - CNN

What about the video they say they have?

Maybe he was wired for video.

1. Tweet

 

Here's a tweet:




HUGE news by @Sabah on #Khashoggi :

Khashoggi himself recorded his questioning via Apple Watch.
Records were uploaded to ICloud
Saudis questioned, tortured, and killed him
Hit squad had access to watch via his fingerprints, deleted some files
Phone had backup

2. MSNBC Richard Engel is reporting it now.

I don't understand why the Saudis didn't delete all the files on his watch and would it have mattered if it was uploaded to a cloud?

5. The cloud keeps a backup, so they would have to delete the backup files

They probably just destroyed the watch.

6. Very terrible. Watch rump and what he does. I bet you he doesn't do a damn thing. This ...

is scary to the extreme and Americans deserve better answers than what rump and folks are saying (and they are basically doing nothing about it). Rump's son in law must have something to do with this sad state of affairs since he just went there...

8. Why haven't any details been released? No corroboration from other media?

Turkey had Saudi consulate bugged and obtained audio/video that way and watch is a cover?

9. That's a possibility.

Chris Murphy just told Cuomo that he thinks the Saudis wanted to fuel the speculation about them to send a message to other dissidents. After all, if they just wanted him dead they could've done it in so many other ways without leaving their fingerprints.

10. Story may or may not be true, at least in part

They are saying that some files were deleted by use of his fingerprint. However, Apple says (according to what I read) that the Apple watch is not responsive to fingerprints. So maybe files were deleted, maybe not,
