The Suunto SK-8 compass takes over the proven features of the old Suunto diving compass such as good readability thanks to fluorescent compass rose and robust, impact-resistant construction, and improves them even further. Because the Suunto SK-8 strap mount compass now has an even larger side reading window, and it also stabilizes faster, which makes navigation with a change of course even safer and easier for divers.
