About Suunto SK8 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 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. The compass is offered in 3 models depending on your diving requirements.

If wearing the compass on your wrist is preferred the compass comes in a durable rubber boot with adjustable wrist strap and is easy to mount on your wrist. Boot has side notch for side reading navigation. This model is great when you don't always need to carry a compass on every dive.

The compass is also available in an add-on-end model. Durable rubber boot allows easy mounting on the Vyper, Gekko and analog consoles to give the diver complete instrumentation. The compass boot also has side notch for side reading navigation.

The third model is an add-on-back model and will also work with Vyper, Gekko and analog consoles. The compass boot also has side notch for side reading navigation. All compass models come with an owner's.

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

Another replacement how long will it last?


from Carmel, CA, US

This is a product designed as a consumable, it will fail. I purchase one of these every 18 months or so. The plastic eventually fails from regular impacts. Unfortunately, with a Shinto you cannot easily use a different compass so you are stuck having to buy another. Do whatever you can to protect the compass when in use and when in storage.
