The bipartite entanglement across the magnetization process of a highly frustrated spin-1/2 Heisenberg octahedral chain is examined within the concept of localized magnons, which enables a simple calculation of the concurrence measuring a strength of the pairwise entanglement between nearest-neighbor and next-nearest-neighbor spins from square plaquettes. A full exact diagonalization of the finite-size Heisenberg octahedral chain with up to 4 unit cells (20 spins) evidences an extraordinary high precision of the localized-magnon theory in predicting measures of the bipartite entanglement at sufficiently low temperatures. While the monomer-tetramer phase emergent at low enough magnetic fields exhibits presence (absence) of the bipartite entanglement between the nearest-neighbor (next-nearest-neighbor) spins, the magnon-crystal phase emergent below the saturation field contrarily displays identical bipartite entanglement between the nearest-neighbor and next-nearest-neighbor spins. The presented results verify a new paradigm of the localized-magnon approach concerned with a simple calculation of entanglement measures.
