The Suunto SK-8 Wrist Dive Compass balanced for the Southern Hemisphere (SH) is a high-quality liquid-filled dive compass. It can be worn on the hand, wrist or arm and is secured in place with bungee shock cord.
It's the world's most popular scuba diving compass and our favourite as well.

The SK8 is the latest edition of Suunto's leading scuba diving compass. It delivers even better underwater performance with faster stabilisation and enhanced readability. Both northern and southern hemisphere models can be used over a wider area of the globe thanks to an upgraded magnet.

The superior Suunto SK-8 Compass has an exceptional tilt potential of plus or minus 30 degrees, which is two or three times greater than in conventional diving compasses. This means that the compass card will spin freely even when the unit is not held completely flat, helping you to navigate effectively in all diving conditions.

The large, firm-grip bezel with a ratchet at every fifth degree is easy to operate even with thick gloves. The bezel is specially designed to prevent sand and dirt contamination, allowing smooth turning in all conditions. The compass bezel has compass headings in 30° degrees numbered increments and indicator marks for every 5° degrees. The bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course and a lubber line across the compass face.

The Suunto SK8 Compass has a phosphorescent card which can be charged with a diving light. Simply point your torch at the compass face for around 30 seconds and you will be able to navigate in confidence even in low visibility or complete darkness.
The bungee system allows it to be worn over wetsuits or thicker drysuits.
