    Too late. They can take my $29 as a tip then! I have always been impressed with these. A mate uses one cycling here in the hills, mean to map on the screen at work to see exactly where and how.

    Just a word of caution team... the Traverse White and the Traverse Alpha are not quite one and the same thing. Yes, they're both the "Traverse" watch, but the Alpha has additional features not embodied in the White.

    All the basic features are the same and performance is identical, however the Alpha has additional Hunting and Fishing modes not available in the White and with those features comes:

    Sunrise/sunset alarms
    Moon phase calendar (surprisingly helpful)
    Red back light (compatible with night vision for you SAS guys)
    Storm alarm
    Temperature
    Shot detection
    Sea level pressure graph

    ... and some other stuff associated with the above features.

    If you want the full details go to the main Suunto site, search for Traverse then "compare" the Alpha with the White. The site gives you a full like for like comparison and you can then note the differences.

    Hope that helps.

    Shot detection, it hears a shot and places a way point on your map/track so you see where you shot
