To set a watch, select Debug -> Add Watch.

You then fill in the expression box with the expression you want to watch for, and you can specify the action to be taken under watch type. If you choose the watch expression option, no action is taken until you enter the debug mode. You can also break at value change or when value is true.

When you run the program, the watch window will appear when you enter break mode, if you are running it in "When value is true" or "When value change" mode.

You can remove a watch by right clicking it in the watch window.

Keep in mind that watches are slow, since all watches are recalculated before the statements are excuted.
