Adding, editing and removing watches
If you want to evaluate a number of variables or expressions in the context of the current frame, and view all of them simultaneously, you can create watches for them. The values of the expressions are updated with each step through the application, but are only visible when the application is suspended. Unlike the Expression Evaluation feature, these expressions are persisted as the part of your project.

By default, the Watches pane is hidden and the watches are shown in the Variables pane.
To have the Watches pane displayed separately and view the configured watches in it, release the toggle button on the toolbar of the Variables pane. By default, the button is pressed.
