Suunto have tried to streamline their dive compass range and instead of offering different dive compasses for different areas in the world they have brought out the SK8 Compass. The Suunto SK8 Dive Compass features 2-3 times larger tilt potential than in conventional diving compasses and provides easy-to-read numerals.
The firm-grip bezel with a ratchet at every fifth degree is specially designed to prevent sand and dirt contamination- allowing smooth turning in all conditions.
The compass is available in wrist or console-mounted models. The SK8 can also be fitted on the Suunto Cobra dive computer. It has easy-to-read numerals on a phosphorescent compass card and a large side-reading window.
By adding the SK8 compass to different Suunto Combo consoles- you can create a personal console that meets your specific needs. For example- CB-Double can be made by adding the SK8/DS compass to the reverse side of the CB-One. Or you can configure your CB-One console to a CB-Two by adding an SK8 compass on top.
If you add the SK8/DS compass on to the reverse side of the CB-Two In Line- you get a CB-Double in Line. And CB-Three In Line console is made by adding a SK8 compass on top of a Two In Line console.
