BINOS with BEARING DISPLAY

Does anyone here use a pair of waterproof 8x - 10x with accurate in eye compass bearing display?
I'm looking for a pair that can be recommended. Usable at night too.
Any ideas?

WOW, they're 1/5th of the price of the FUJI ones I was eyeing up.
The 360 degree bit is a great help in a compass
Thanks for that, are they good though?
Helios is a respected manufacturer.
