Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside.
Combine soy sauce, honey, ketchup, pineapple juice, vinegar, and garlic in a medium bowl; whisk to blend.
Add cornstarch mixture to soy sauce mixture; whisk to blend. Set aside.
Lightly coat inside of a 3-quart slow cooker with spray.
