Well I’ll tackle the easy part first, the compass. It’s a liquid filled button compass, and typical of all button compasses it’s sensitive to sticking when using on all but the flattest of angles. It does point north when given a chance to “settle down”.The thermometer offers its own set of issues. Location is everything. If you are going to use it strapped to your wrist, it will do a wonderful job of reading your skin temperature, and not the outside air temperature. It takes a couple of minutes after taking it off to adjust to the ambient air temperature. Having said all of this, it does a pretty good job, and is accurate.I’ve found the best use for these is strapped to the shoulder harness of my pack. While the protective covers won’t take a lot of abuse, they do a good job in relatively protected area of my pack harness.Overall a good item that does what it was designed to do. Provide an emergency backup to your compass, and give you a good idea of what the temperature is.
This item clearly conveys the notion that one CAN measure ambient temperature from one’s WRIST.Part of the description of this product reads: “Widely adjustable tacital strap fits most adults and children.”BUT this is WRONG !Though this item DOES FIT the wrists of most adults and children, NEVERTHELESS: when worn on the wrist – the temperature gauge measures SKIN temperature RATHER THAN ambient temperature! While wearing this product, the thermometer gauge read 85 degrees when the ambient temperature was really only 68 degrees; a 17 degree difference !I have NO NEED to read my skin temperature!

This product is great quality. As advertised, it is exactly what I wanted and goes great with my Dive watch. Thank you!
Tiny, not really practical for real outdoor adventure
