About Suunto SK8 Add-On End Mount Compass

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 Suunto Compass design is Liquid Filled Compass with a list of features as functional and convenient as every instrument that bears the Suunto name.

The SK-8 has set a new standard for dive compasses. The superior SK-8 features an exceptional tilt potential of +/- 30° degrees, which is 2-3 times larger than in conventional diving compasses. SK-8, the latest edition of Suunto's leading dive compasses, delivers even better underwater performance with faster stabilization and enhanced readability. The instrument can be used over a wider area of the globe thanks to an upgraded magnet. The SK-8 Compass has easy-to-read numerals on a phosphorescent compass card, and a large side-reading window for gun-sight accurate navigation.

The firm-grip rotating bezel with a ratchet at every 5° degree is especially designed to prevent sand-and-dirt contamination, thus allowing smooth turning in all conditions. The compass bezel has compass headings in 30° degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 5° degrees. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course and a lubber line across the compass face. The compass is liquid filled for a quick and responsive movement. Durable rubber boot allows easy mounting on the Vyper, Gekko and Zoop Consoles to give the diver complete instrumentation. Boot has side notch for side reading navigation. Compass comes with a user guide and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

Please note: The compass we sell is calibrated for Zone 1/NH (Northern Hemisphere)

This compass is virtually useless and can not be relied on. The first one I bougth locked up while diving multiple times. Liesure pro replaced it. After a few monthe the second one started locking up also. I talked to local dive shop they said many customers have this problem. Def. not liesure pro's problem. This company is great but Suunto knows they have a problem and won't/can't fix it and are still turning out the same poor product.

        Comments about Aqualung Suunto SK8 Add-On End Mount Compass:

        Having a compass is a must in many situations. I've used the Suunto Sk-7 mounted to a Suunto computer for 12 years. It is excellent and easy to read. However, because it is end mounted, it can take a beating if you drag your equipment. I've had to replace two units because I was careless. One had the compass dial come loose from the spindle. The other had broken direction indicators. If you carry metal rods for digging, or spearguns with metal rods, keep them away from the compass when you are actually using the compass, because the metal rods can temporarily affect the compass reading. Personally I prefer this "old fashion" type of compass to an electronic compass – maybe it's just what you get used to.

          I added this to my Suunto Cobra Dive Computer. It's a have to have. We dive the rigs in the Gulf and an easy to use, readily accessible compass is a must.
