|see vs watch||
To see means to be aware of what is around you by using your eyes.
For example: "I can see the smoke from here."
To watch means to deliberately look at something for a period of time, especially something that is changing or moving.
For example: "I watched the cricket."
!Note - We watch things that move, such as TV, a film, sport. We look at static things, such as a photograph, a painting, the stars. See also look at vs watch.
