Traverse Alpha: Suunto’s New Tactical Watch

Recommended Posts

A watch that features automatic shot detection, GPS/GLONASS navigation and scratch-resistance sapphire crystal glass — yeah, Suunto’s new Traverse Alpha is the real deal.



The feature-rich, super durable Traverse Alpha lasts as long as the hunt takes, with a remarkable 100 hours of battery life with GPS enabled.


Handmade in Finland, the Traverse Alpha meets the toughest U.S. Military standards while offering a robust set of hunting- and fishing-specific features. Unique to Suunto, the new automatic shot recognition feature uses the integrated accelerometer to detect when a shot is fired and automatically creates a point of interest (POI) based on that location.


In addition to its integrated GPS/GLONASS route navigation, the Traverse Alpha also includes unique POI types that record important locations such as animal prints, signs of bedding, and tree stand or fishing locations to allow for easy navigation back to relevant areas. Functions including breadcrumb trail, a digital compass with tilt compensation, and FusedAlti — a unique combination of GPS and barometric altitude — assist with navigation in unknown territory.


Using Suunto’s online mapping platform, Movescount, sportsmen can utilize detailed topographic maps featuring elevation data to accurately track shot distance and elevation, and create altitude profiles and waypoints.



A customizable red backlight, for low light situations, and vibration alerts allow users to go undetected in the backcountry.


Tested against the military standard MIL-STD-819G, Suunto designs every Traverse watch for action as well as everyday wear. The Traverse Alpha takes durability a step further with the addition of a knurled stainless steel bezel, water-repellent nylon strap and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass.


Product Features:


  • Automatic shot detection
  • Red backlight
  • GPS/GLONASS satellite systems
  • Full route navigation with waypoint approaching alerts and breadcrumb trail
  • Route preview and altitude profile
  • 10 hunting-specific POI types
  • Location-based moon phase calendar with moonrise and moonset times
  • Barometric pressure, weather trend and storm alarm
  • Customizable sunrise and sunset alerts


The Suunto Traverse Alpha will be available in the U.S. beginning April 19, 2016, and globally on April 29, with a suggested retail price of $569.

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect.....

In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
