For Confluence Cloud, your options are limited.  You could either log in as the user you want to see:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/log-in-as-another-user-776994835.html

Or you could at least see on a per-space basis in this add-on:

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/bulk-action-tools/cloud/overview

Is there an alternative for a server instance?

I wrote a user macro that you can use to manage (i.e. see and remove) other users' watches:

https://bitbucket.org/stephendeutsch/confluence-user-macros/src/39c3a025dacc6b45abc0105f0b7a21a7375690b4/bulk%20remove%20watchers/remove%20watches%20for%20user.vm?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default

Make sure you set it to show only for administrators. Anyone who isn't in the 'confluence-administrators' group will only see their own watches.

It works fine, thanks a lot!

Thanks Stephen. Logging in as the user was enough for me to do what I needed. Many thanks for the suggestion!
