About Suunto SK7 Retractable 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 Genesis 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-7 has set a new standard for Dive Compasses. The Superior SK-7 features an Exceptional Tilt Potential of +/- 30° degrees, which is 2-3 times larger than in Conventional Diving Compasses. The SK-7 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. Navigation was never easier with this handy Retractor Mount Compass Module. Retractor is equipped with two choices of Mounting Clips that easily attach to your BCD. You can attach the Compass to BCD with the included Plastic Quick-Release Snap Clip with Stainless Steel Split Key Ring. Quick-Disconnect Fitting allowing you to Remove-Compass from BCD after the dive for Safe-Storage. When you need to take a Compass Heading simply Pull-the-Self-Retracting Cable to Desired-Length and when finished it will Automatically-Retract the Cable for you. Compass is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

Please note: The compass we sell is calibrated for Zone 1/NH

      Comments about Aqualung Suunto SK7 Retractable Compass:

      Most expensive is not necessarily best! I like the fact that this compass is on a retractor. Unfortunately the compass needle (which is a round disc) often is stuck in its housing and wont move! To me this indicates poor craftsmanship. Also, when near large metal objects underwater (like oil rig platforms or sunken ships), it does not give correct bearings.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      CHAD R  wanted a compass that was not attached to my gauages and that was easy to get to when needed
      Shopper  Does the retractable version come in SH?
      WILLIAM F  Don't know what SH is. ???
      Shopper  Little confused about balance zone of this item as listed. Suunto used to have 5 balance zones. Now they are adapting only 2,NH and SH. Zone 1, I believe, is only a limited part of the new zone- NH. So is retractable SK7 being sold only for that portion of the NH( zone 1) or the entire NH?
      Frank L  Zone 1 is Northern Hemisphere. So, both are correct. Suunto dropped the five classifications and just simplified it to two zones (Northern and Southern). 1. Northern Hemisphere 2. Northern Equatorial zone 3. Southern Equatorial zone 4. Southern Hemisphere 5. Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica
