The Wattson Home Energy Meter Keeps Track of Your Home Energy Usage in Dollars

Preview Your Electric Bill With the Wattson Home Energy Meter

An energy meter sounds responsible but not sexy — and one other thing would keep me from buying it, normally — that fact that I don't think I'd be patient enough to read it to figure out how much electricity I was actually using and whether my household was going over its limit. But I won't worry about that with the Wattson Home Energy Meter because it measures and presents your energy uses in dollars, which is what your bill will cost!

You don't have to waste time converting anything or remembering how many units you consumed last month, which meant you had $50 bill, carry the one, etc. Just how much energy you're using in cold, hard cash (and depending on where you are, you can set it to read in dollars, euros, yen, and pounds stirling). You can also store and download your energy history to keep track of it — and the Wattson is both PC and Mac compatible!

Green dreams, everyone.

I'd love this because my electric bill is nonsensically high (I'm starting to wonder if it's waaaaay too high, like I'm unintentionally/intentionally getting ripped off) but I definitely can't warrant paying $200 for something like this, since the whole purpose is for me to be thrifty anyway!

I have one of these, as a unit it's pretty good, however the Mac software is rubbish and the transmitter is easily interfered with. Fortunately for me I don't need/want to carry it around the house so keep it in one place where it can keep a signal. The idea of the display and the lights is cool, but the overall execution of that idea does not warrant the high price tag.
