Did you try the compass without any metal around? I'm not taking up for that so called 8 in 1 survival tool but the compass was pointing at the half of the metal hardware on your compass.

You are right. My Suunto was blocking the compass, and I actually made a note of it in the video. But, all in all, this thing is garbage.

The compass would imprrove withou the metal surrounding but you could also use plastic but thats my opinion
That would be the best way instead of using metal. That way you can limit the possibility of the compass being off due to the metal hardware being so close.

Compass works without metal

Yeah, the compass works without the metal.

But overall, this thing is a royal piece of ****. Do not buy :)

Exactly, the battery was terrible. And I'm pretty sure the thing is dead now that the water has been in there for a few days.

I wonder if it would have passed the water test before you opened it.

Still it should have passed the water test after you opened it simply because one day you would have to change the battery.
