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

    Unfortunately the compass arrived defective. The inner dial would not spin as the needle was bent causing the dial to tilt beyond intended function. Obviously defective from the factory as there is no way to bend the needle. Luckily LP stands behind the sale and is first rate when it comes to support and returns. That is why I keep buying from them. In this case it was a return... I ended up with a XS super tilt retractable as I have no faith in Suunto.

      Comments about Aqualung Suunto SK7 Retractable Compass:

      Much easier than wrestling with a console mounted compass. Nice large face easy to read in all conditions. Gun sight window for precise nav. Quickly check a heading then let go - compass retracts to bcd attachment point and sits securely until you need it again. Quick disconnect for safe storage post dive. No cons- love it!

        Great addition to my gear. I tend to use this compass over my digital one as it just seems more accurate and easy to use. I like that it can be unclipped and given to others to use as well.

          I have used several Compass' This one by far is the best I've used. You do not have to stay level, it glows in the deep water, easy to see and use. I have loaned it to other people for navigation and they all agree with me. If I loose It I will replace it with the same model.

            The retractable cord makes all the difference. Easy to hold in front of you when you need it - out of the way when you dont! Just clip it on your BCD And you are set.

            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
