A watcher allows you to "watch" a property of the component data, and run a function when that property value changes.
In the watch object add a method with the same name as the property data you want to "watch".

Syntax:
var vm = new Vue({
 el: 'css_selector',
 data: {
 prop_name: 'value'
 }.
 watch: {
 prop_name: function(newVal, oldVal{
 //code and value to return
 }
 }
});

The function assigned to watch.prop_name can optionally accept 2 parameters. The first is the new property value (newVal). The second is the old property value.

Here is a practical example with the watch property in vue.js. Add the diameter of a circle into an input field, then it is displayed the perimeter and area:
<div id='demo'>
 Diameter circle: <input type='number' value='0' v-model='diameter'/><br>
 Perimeter: {{perimeter}}<br>
 Area: {{area}}
</div>

<script>
var vm = new Vue({
 el:'#demo',
 data: {
 diameter: 0,
 perimeter:0,
 area:0
 },
 watch: {
 diameter: function(val){
 this.perimeter = 3.14*val;
 this.area = 3.14*(val*val)/4;
 }
 }
});
</script>
