Ben Davies, in Jerrabomberra,  NSW, who wrote, “The men won’t let me have a map and compass, as we keep getting ‘lost’. For their sake and mine, please gift me one of these watches!”
And, after hearing that he’d won, Ben said, “To say I’m gobsmacked about winning one of the watches would be an understatement – I’ve never won anything in a competition before! You’ve made my day”

John Prince of Craigmore, South Australia, who wrote, “I NEEEED a watch like this!!!! Let’s see those sneaky little Army Cadets try to get me geographically embarrassed then!!”
After John heard he won, he said, “That is absolutely Outstanding!! Thank you so much. I feel very lucky and excited.”



The two best (most compelling, thoughtful or humorous) answers, as judged by us, were chosen, from more than 250 entries, to win either a Suunto Traverse Alpha Stealth or a Suunto Traverse Alpha Foliageeach worth $729!!!


Our choice of winners is final and no correspondence will be entered into.




Both these fantastic watches come with the following features (and more)…

Vibration alerts and a night-vision-goggle-compatible red backlight help you stay unnoticed.

Suunto Traverse and Traverse Alpha outdoor watches have been tested according to military standards (MIL STD 819G). The watches have passed 19 tests, including vibration, shock, drop, freeze/thaw, rain, humidity, immersion, sand and dust.

They are water resistant to 100 m/330 ft.



Create routes in Suunto Movescount with topographic maps and altitude information. See the altitude profile of your route directly from the watch. The built-in barometric pressure sensor accurately tracks your ascent.

Save points of interest along the way and, if needed, re-trace your steps using the automatic breadcrumb trail. Use the digital compass to quickly orientate yourself in unknown terrain.



Location-based moon-phase calendar with moonrise and moonset times helps you determine the best fishing times, while the barometric pressure graph allows you to closely follow weather changes.

Sunrise and sunset alerts help plan your day, while the customizable red backlight does not interfere with night vision.

When scouting, use hunting specific POI types to mark trails and important locations.

Automatic shot detection keeps track of the number and location of shots.



Accurate location information is key for a safe and enjoyable hike. Suunto Traverse helps you navigate a planned route. Follow your progress with key statistics such as distance and altitude. Save points of interest along the way and, if needed, re-trace your steps using the automatic breadcrumb trail.

Use the digital compass to quickly orientate yourself in unknown terrain.



Suunto Traverse uses both GPS and GLONASS satellite navigation systems to calculate your speed and location. Altitude, vertical speed and total ascent are measured with FusedAlti™, where barometric pressure information is combined with satellite altitude.



suunto_giveaway3Suunto Traverse watches are designed, tested and hand built in Finland. The composite case feels light on the wrist and the stainless steel bezel protects the recessed screen.
