Selectable temperature units

Surely in this day and age it must be possible to add the option of selecting temperature units.

In the UK we mainly use Miles for distance and Celsius for temperature.

Fahrenheit doesn't mean a thing to me as I was schooled in Metric units ( I'm no youngster either! )

    Indeed there is a large discussion on the topic here. Thanks for chiming in!

  • Tragically Strava are, for reasons best known to themselves (and currently a well-kept secret), incapable or pathalogically uninterested in enabling user-selectable measurement-presentation units.  There is a thread already over 2 YEARS old requesting this, with no sign of any response from Strava...

  • They seem to want to service their US customers more than us customers

  • Yes the UK standard is miles and Celsius. I don't have a clue how hot F is. Please can we have this?

  • My Bryton records in C and then Srava converts to meaningless (to me) F??

  • I agree that Celsius (or Centigrade as it is known in the US and also more commonly used in everyday language in the UK) would be great combined with miles for UK people. We are the only nation in the world, as far as I know, where the majority would prefer miles together with Celsius. I don't blame the US or Strava. The UK is in an odd position. Despite swearing future allegiance to the metric system when we joined the European Community in the 1970s, we still use miles, by statute, for all official road distances and miles/hr for road speed limits and wind speeds, unknown to most Americans, who think we went totally metric. So did we in the UK for a while. Remember when a market stall holder was prosecuted for selling fruit and vegetables in pounds in the late 1970s. Yards are even making a comeback thanks to American SatNav devices being similarly unable to deal in metres for short distances and miles for long distances. Here in the UK, it is actually statute to use yards for short road distances less than a mile even though most UK people would feel happier talking in 100m, 200m or 400m as in athletics. Notice that the warning stop signs before a main road do say 200yds in the UK. You almost never see yards written on sign posts though...more like 3/4 mile, 1/2 or 1/4 mile due to the same problem. We teach only metric distances, weights and volumes in schools. Yet we sell beer in pubs by the Imperial pint and milk by the Imperial pint in shops, even though it is translated to litres and millilitres on the labels. Nearly all other foods and drinks are in grams, kilograms and millilitres. Kitchen units are always sold in millimetre widths such as 100mm, 200mm etc and also lengths of timber. However, the lengths of timber are really in feet translated to millimetres, such as 1800mm for 6 feet, 1500mm for 5 ft etc, the same as lengths of fluorescent lighting.

    So, in summary units of measurement are a mess in the UK! Please though, spare a thought for the old country and give us the option of using Celsius with miles!
