You need to create a workflow. Follow the steps given below :


1.   Evaluation Criteria: select “Every time a record is created or edited”
2.   Rule Criteria: select “Formula evaluates to true”, and write “ISCHANGED( custom_field )” formula in formula editor
3.   Select “mail alert” as action
4.   As Recipient Type select related User from picklist and add them list.


Hope this helps.
