You can not do it out of the box. You should have an add-on for it. For example, you could do it with Power Scripts. You would need to create a post-function for the create transition with a code like this

%key%.watchers = getUser("userName");

You can read more about Power Scripts here:

You could also use Adaptivist ScriptRunner.
