Octopus Watch

Stay on top of Octopus Agile electricity rates.

Octopus Watch is designed to make your life easy on the innovative Agile Octopus electricity tariff from Octopus Energy. On this tariff the rate you pay is tied to wholesale prices and changes every 30 minutes. The rate can be up to 3x higher than the average price, but can also be negative – you get paid to use electricity! All you need is a smart meter which Octopus Energy can install for you. Feeling a bit overwhelmed because the rate changes every 30 minutes? Not to worry, Octopus Watch keeps you up-to-date with the current rate, and helps you find the cheapest slots to run appliances throughout the day. Available on Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and soon also on Play Store/Amazon Kindle.
