How to check which boards my user is watching?

Is there any way to get from the rest api which Trello boards my user is watching? Or alternatively whether my user is watching a particular board?

It doesn’t appear that you can get a list of all of the boards your member is watching. Is there a place in the Trello UI that this is available? I tend to start looking at the network requests happening for things in the UI to lead me to which API resource is being used.

However, you can definitely use the API to determine whether your user is watching a particular board. The subscribed field is used to manage the “watching” relationships. You can determine whether the current user (based on key/token pair) is watching a given boardId with the following request:

https://api.trello.com/1/boards/{boardId}/?fields=subscribed&key={apiKey}&token={apiToken}
