Inexpensive Waterproof Compass Review
Sometimes having a compass with you while scuba diving is extremely handy. And some of the electronic compasses that you find on higher end dive computers (electronic compasses) need to be calibrated too often in order to be useful if you forget to do so right before your dive.
Here’s a cool compass from ScubaPro for under $100…
I ordered one of these ScubaPro compasses and it’ll be here in a couple of days. After I receive it, I’ll take some pics and edit this article with their addition. Also, we’ll get these into the water soon and check them out and report back.

And here’s a compass from Phantom Aquatics for under $30…
The build quality and feel of the Phantom Aquatics Compass is decent. -Not great. Not terrible. I like that it’s made in Taiwan as opposed to being made in China. That usually means better build quality and attention to detail IMHO.
Happy and SAFE diving!
