The Hornets took an early lead through Miguel Layun, making his top flight bow, who fired home a volley from around 13 yards after Jurado's left-wing cross fell nicely for him.
Roberto Martinez's Toffees were able to break Watford's resistance with just under 15 minutes remaining when Arouna Kone teed up Ross Barkley who rocketed into Heurelho Gomes' top left corner from outside the area.
Quique Flores' side then edged ahead again on 83 minutes when Odion Ighalo, who had come off the bench only seven minutes earlier, capped a fine individual run before rifling beyond Tim Howard.
But not to be outdone, Kone made a smart run down the right side of the area which prompted strike partner Romelu Lukaku to slot the ball ahead of him, enabling the Ivory Coast striker to tie it up in the 86th minute.
Everton: 2 (Ross Barkley 76', Arouna Kone 86')
Goodison Park, Liverpool - 39,063
Debutants: WAT - Sebastian Prodl, Jose Holebas, Allan Nyom and Jurado (club and league), Miguel Layun, Ikechi Anya, Troy Deeney, Juan Carlos Paredes and Odion Ighalo (league), Valon Behrami and Etienne Capoue (club)
- Will this be the season where Barkley finally fulfils his enormous potential?
- Can a fit Kone help fire Everton up the standings?
