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 fifth 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 has side notch for side reading navigation.

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

Works like a charm

I've had this DC since mid 2007 and it still works great! One complaint is when I set it up for Nitrox it reverts back to a default setting after a period of time of inactivity. And another complaint is trying to remember all the sequences to go thru to change to Nitrox, etc. Nonetheless, never had a minutes trouble with the DC not working.

Stay Away

I purchased this sight unseen...big mistake. The battery was near dead, the compass is really cheap and the software wasn't included could buy it for another $75 bucks. While trying to get over my first impressions, I did use it and I purchased the quick disconnect and the software. No surprise when the USB connector didn't work and there were no instructions or diagrams on how to put anything together. While I was able to download the software without a problem, I still couldn't...

most fragile com i ever use


from sunway, selangor, MY

depth sensor faulty with less than 2 years, n its my 2nd faulty sunnto..both faulty in short old scubapro still working well


Worst, fails with minimal use


from 33572, FL, US

I was excited to purchase this computer but a little over two years of minimal use (just past the warranty expiration) the computer started deploying that I was constantly diving. This was not the fault of the diver with 30+ years of experience nor was it the result of temporary no fly period. It is an inherent and well-known defect in the design of the product which causes it to think it is diving even when at the surface. The crime of this is that it cannot be fixed. I spent over $600 on the computer and now it is a paperweight. Completely worthless. Do not waste your money on Suunto. They know of this design flaw and have not fixed the issue. All Suunto products share this design flaw. You've been warned. Check out scuba blogs on this issue; I wish I had before wasting my money on this Suunto.

Good DC with nice compass


Very nice dive computer. Quick disconnect and easily downloads dive info to my mac. Very cool. Three buttons control all functions. The compass is very good and works when tilted. Once you get the hang of the computers menus it is all good. A solid value at this price point.


Good little computer


I use this dive computer for wreck diving, cold water diving and tropical recreation diving. As well as some night diving from time to time. The only problem with this computer is that it is very conservative and freaks out at little things. If you ascend too fast for whatever reason from whatever depth, deep or shallow, it's liable to lock you out for 24 hours. Also, it gives you a "no fly" symbol after the shallowest of dives. It actually gave me a no fly signal after I put it in my dunk tank for 2 minutes. Other than that, this computer is just fine. It's very conservative, so would do fine for an average vacation diver. But it also supports nitrox up to 50% and supports pO2 up to 1.6. It's somewhat simple to operate (no dive computers are nowadays) for what it is and works fine for deep dives. Overall, despite the cons I mentioned over the pros (I'm just trying to be informative) its a good, full featured dive computer. Also note, the housing of this computer is not a hard polycarbonate like you'd think. It's actually a somewhat hard, moderately flexible rubber. And this is a good things because it is more durable and handles dents and dings and bumps. Also note, DO NOT spend the extra $ on the cable and download software. The cable can't hold a connection to save its life. The contacts are too small and the locking mechanism to lock the cable in place doesn't even work.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
SHANNON A  Two words describes this "LOVE IT"! Be sure to get the quick disconnect. I like how it accommodates Air and Nitrox because you can't always get Nitrox and I personally prefer to use my own equipment - I know that it's been taken care of, maintained regularly, and just plain how it works.
WAYNE S  Can I purchase the Cobra Unit without the compass? if so how much as I have the compass from my old unit.
DAVID W  Hi Wayne -- Yes you can get teh Cobra w/o the compass. Checkout the Leisure Pro to see the Cobra you're looking for.. a deal at $424.95.
ERIC R  You can. I haven't checked to see if LeisurePro has one listed. It's best to call their order line and ask for pricing. It should be about $100 less without the compass. If they don't offer it, others will.
Matthew W  Which version of the Cobra is this? The Cobra, Cobra 2, or Cobra 3?
ROBYN W  We bought this Suunto Cobra. 2 computer in July 2010 and it has served us well except for the computer depth sensor failing completely. 2 years later. Suunto replaced it for free with a brand new unit. I'm over 50, so would prefer a larger display and less conservative computer like Oceanic Pro Plus 2.1.
Kasia W  This is Suunto Cobra Air.
STEPHEN G  I purchased this in late 2009 or early 2010 think pretty sure it's a 2 but I am not positive.
ERIC R  This is a Cobra.
