Custom Unit Preferences (Miles, Kg, Celsius)

I'd like more control over what units are used in the app.  Specifically, I'd like miles, kilograms and degrees Celsius.  Miles is the most important to me so at the moment I'm stuck with other units which mean nothing to me (pounds and Fahrenheit).

Can we just get fields in the settings area for each unit of measurement please?

  • Strava, there's no excuse, get this sorted. Otherwise, YOU SUCK!

    It is also rather telling that this support forum only appears to support English (US) as an option rather than English (UK) !

  • It does appear that this requirement has been in discussion in the forums for sometime.  

    The Samsung options do separate the options for Temperature and distance.   Fitbit don't appear to bother with temperature and have not assessed the Microsoft watch options.

    Surely though the options to separate  are possible with a bit of code although I have no idea what the separation of existing code impacts the associated release.....

    Garmin Developers - please for the is it possible for us UK lot to have C&F and KM & Miles separated?

  • Come on Strava, disappointing to come into a thread so many years old to find such a basic feature thats been so desired has still not been implemented

  • Absolutely ridiculous that this is still not delivered by Strava.  I suggest anyone reading to the end of this post a new "feature request" (or bug report, or other form of interaction) as well as putting a +1 here.  Otherwise it will languish as a contender for "longest running obvious feature request" but no more than that.

  • Tim had a good idea with:

    'It's just a display unit. The data remains the same. Front end work mainly. If putting it in as a setting option is too much hassle then at least a button to flip from F to C on the UI even if we have to click it each time (or just remember it in a cookie).'

    This would be quick

  • 179+ comments in support of this new feature is something your customers want. Poor response and not what many want to hear. 

     

    What part of customer feedback does warrant a proper review?!

  • Is this still an issue? Miles / KG / C here. We just don't do F in this country and it's totally meaningless to me.

  • Yes it is still an issue.

    We're having to use third party Chrome plug-ins to change F to C. 

    Strava are just silent on the issue but are happy to try and make this the new facebook.. very poor business model.

  • Strava,

    Can you let us know, please?  Some of us live in countries where miles AND °C are the standard units. °F means nothing to me.

    Whilst I don't think this should be a Premium-only feature, I am surprised, given how much I pay each year for Premium membership, that Strava's response on topics like this is seemingly so elusive.  Where do all the Premium subscription monies go, please?

  • This request has been asked for a multitude of times and not even been properly replied to by Strava. It is a serious annoyance to users.

    Yet you can spend time and resources to give users the option to give tailored Kudos!

    You really should take a long hard look at how you deal with us

  • me too for walking pace in Km/hr NOT mins per Km - whose daft idea was that?  I've given up on Strava really until they respond.  I now use a garmin Vivoactive HR which gives me all the units I want and communicates with Strava so I can check my segments!

  • Can you believe this request goes back nearly 5 years!!!

    And nobody from Strava has even commented. What’s the use of running a support forum if you don’t respond to requests? Yet as I said earlier, spend tons of resources on a stupid unnecessary tailored Kudos “feature”

    Vote with your feet people, cancel your premium subscription, then and only then, Strava might just listen, but don’t hold your breath.

  • I would really like to see my sweep rowing and sculling in meters/sec, not mi/hr or km/hr.  I also follow a lot of cyclists and runners and of course I can relate to mi/hr speed or min/mile pace respectively.  It's absurd that I have to change my personal preferences between si & metric.  A drop down list of units seems like an obvious tool to add somewhere for each activity.

  • Seriously. This is just unbelievable. Absolute every single comment want to have the option to set up their excercise in the values they are familiar with. They have been asking for this for years! I joined today, and I didn`t even consider this issue for even excisting. Pls Strava, fix this.The point is not that I don`t read miles and feet. I`m not the kind of athlete that NEED this, but I just don`t see why not. It should be a piece of cake. Fixed numbers in the computer, correct numbers at the screen! I prefer the metric system. Excpecting you change this rather fast.
