And the winners are…
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 Foliage – each 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)…
TESTED FOR MILITARY STANDARDS
Featuring a knurled stainless steel bezel, water repellent nylon textile strap and scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, Suunto Traverse Alpha is the optimal watch for hunters, anglers, hikers and CONTACT fans looking for maximum durability.
Vibration alerts and a night-vision-goggle-compatible red backlight help you stay unnoticed.

MASTER YOUR TERRITORY
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.
TOOLS FOR FISHING AND HUNTING
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.
NAVIGATE WITH CONFIDENCE
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.
