Would it help if we have a seperate API to set a watch on a node, but the client sends the previous version of the node it saw as a parameter. When the server sets the watch, if the version of the node is higher than the version sent by the client, the watch will be triggered immediately. This should stop a client from doing a getChildren() (or getData()) each time it wants to set a watch and thus resulting in unconditional return of large amounts of data for each attempt to set a watch?

Zookeeper is fast, but making thousands of calls can eat up some time, especially if you are debugging a local client with a remote ZK server.
