About Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap

Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The design team at Oceanic may have designed the best Liquid Filled Compass available today with a list of features as functional and convenient as every instrument that bears the Oceanic name.

The SideScan is actually a dual purpose compass. The convenient Sde Scan Window allows Quick Reference of Large, Easy-to-Read Bearing Indicators on a Luminescent Display for Gun-Sight Accuracy. Or, for divers who prefer Relative Navigation, the Ratchet Bezel can be rotated easily even with thick neoprene gloves. The Bezel Numbers on top of the SideScan Compass are actually molded completely through the bezel ring and literally cannot be rubbed off unlike silk screened graphics.

The Luminous Dial of the Sidescan is designed with a Half Black / Half Luminous Graphic to make quick work of compass direction, especially in dim light. The dial rests on a Precision Jeweled Bearing and incorporates extremely Strong Magnets for super quick response and accuracy. While the SideScan module itself is very compact, the housing has a large vertical interior allowing viewing angles that would stop other compasses in their tracks. The Compass Bezel has compass headings in 30 degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 10 degrees. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course, and a lubber line across the compass face. Compass is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

The Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap is commonly used for All Diving Applications, Cold Water, Recreation, Warm Water and more. The Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Casual/ Recreational, Recreational Diver among others. The Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap: Easy To Operate, Easy To Read, Easy To Use, Functional, Improves Diving Experience, Lightweight, Reliable, Solid Construction.

      Comments about Oceanic SWIV Compass with Rubber Wrist Strap:

      Love that it has the side view and it still works even if it is not PERFECTLY level. Some may say the strap is too long, it's better than being too short! Besides, you can always cut off the excess. Looking forward to many dives with it.

          Good navigation required a great tool, this compass has the features you want. The dial is quick with response without overshooting the heading and bouncing around, the side view allows comfortable sighting while in a good dive position and the rubber strap is durable and large enough to allow for placement over thick suits and gloves.
