The Octopus watch needs to be and stay plugged* to the companion to allow it to work as a programmable nightlight.


The companions setting are saved in the watch. Your children can use their watch's settings with any companion.



*If you live outside of the USA:
We sold Octopus in more than 80 countries and unfortunately it's just impossible to provide the correct plug to everybody. But the good news is that you can use the same plug that you use with your smartphone. It's a standard 5V USB adaptor.

You can also buy one for less than $2 on Amazon.
