Validate incoming transactions to cold wallets or hardware wallets
View-only wallets cannot sign transactions, therefore they can't spend a balance alone. However, they can be used as part of an offline transaction signing, by creating unsigned transactions to be signed offline in a cold device, and later by sending the signed transaction to the network.
You can also create a view-only wallet of a hardware wallet, however this kind of view-only wallet doesn't support offline transaction signing and importing of key images.
