Watches also do not have any data associated with them, so even if they were not one-time,
you would not get any extra information and you have the potential of generating a lot of
extra network traffic.

Hi Thomas,
 Yes, watches are one time triggers. Watches are supposed to be lighweight
and local to the server you are connected to.
We designed it such that it has minimum load impact on the servers.
