Allow different unit preferences per activity type (runs vs rides)

Can we have a unit preferences section per activity type? I don't mean for each individual activity but just the general types. Strava would set them to defaults, but then users can customise them. For example, I would want to see cycling distances in miles but running distances in kilometers. Then on my feed pages and any activity page, those choices would apply. So in the activity feed any of mine or my friends runs would all be in KM, but also in the list would be any cycle rides in miles inline.

Since the activity feed already displays an image of a bike, or an image of a foot for cycling and running respectively, then applying those unit preferences should be achievable in the same manner.

I've added in a mockup screenshot.

    Please add this in.  I'm English and we love to ride and run in miles but we like to swim in meters!!  All our pools (for the most part) are now meters!

  • I really want to see miles on the bike, but km on my runs. Any chance of getting this option soon?

  • Yep, same situation here, biking in miles, rowing in km. Would be a big help

  • I'd just like to be able to click/touch on a distance and have it toggle the display units. I'm happy to use miles 95% of the time but occasionally I'd like to see kilometers. For example when looking at a friend's ride who's training for a 300k, he rode 220 miles, how many kilometers is that?

  • I have the opposite but analogous problem. 

     

    Bike in kms, run in miles. Would be a useful feature to have.

  • +1 Really would appreciate this. Run in miles and cycle in km. Majority of people in the country do (Ireland)

    As above - for me:

    - miles for run and bike

    - metres for swim

    - celsius for temp

    - feet for height

  • +1.  It is crazy at the moment.  I think virtually everyone runs and cycles to miles, and virtually all swimming pools (in the UK at least) are in metres.

  • I agree with the above we swim in metric pools but vary units for other activities

  • Definitely need a user controlled option for what units to display in their feed.  Make it a simple setting in the user preferences.

  • Why are we still asking for multi units for different sport in 2018. Why can't Strava enable this?

  • I'd also like to see:

    -miles for run and bike

    -yards and/or meters for swim (depends on the pool I can access)

  • Seems Strava is giving Swim activity some attention.  My Strava swims now show heart rate, pace, and laps.  So, hopefully we'll have multiple units for different sports in the near future.

  • I agree, I ride and run in miles, but swim in meters and prefer paces/distances listed accordingly per activity type.

  • It would be great to be able to log bike rides in miles and runs in km.

    Strava please make this happen. Thanks.

  • Can we please get this?  I'm American so my running and cycling are in miles but the pool I swim in is a 25M pool.  It's weird to do 100M repeats and see 109Y for the laps recorded.

    Preferably it would be nice to allow for swimming to switch back and forth between yards or meters as you may be in different pools at different times (i.e. 25 yard pool some days and a 50 meter pool another).  But if we can just get the ability to set swimming to a different units format than other sports to begin with that would be a great start!

  • Miles for running. Kilometres for cycling. Why does it take Strava so long to respond to logical and reasonable requests that require minimal recoding? No excuse really when you are adding all kinds of irrelevant noise to the feed that must require massively more work than to do something this obvious and actually useful.

  • I was just searching hoping to find that this was already possible, but it seems that I'm looking for the same as everyone else, want to log Bike in miles and Run/Swim in metres.

    Hopefully soon?

  • Adding my two cents to allow us to change yds to meters.  Thank you!

  • I'd like metres for swimming and miles for run and bike.  Seeing swimming in a 25m pool converted to yards looks wrong.

  • Please implement this feature. We all use different units to measure different activities. Adding this to your already superb system would make it awesome.

    Could you take a vote on this somehow? Or do we need to tell you we want something via threads like this?

    Thank you in advance for adding this feature to your next release schedule :-)

  • Its a shame this hasn't been done.  It's my only frustration with Strava.  Does anyone look at these suggestions and consider them for product changes?

  • As a cyclist/swimmer, this unit thing has been an issue for me. Kudos to Strava for allowing yards/meters input for swimming activities on mobile. That's a huge improvement. As a software guy (who's thought about applying to Strava, wink wink, nudge nudge), I don't see why global units preferences need to be used on each activity. If someone enters an activity in meters, that activity should remain in meters and not get translated to yards on the timeline. For ytd totals, sure, translate everything to a common unit per the user's preferences. But as a swimmer, I would rather see activities like 2500 yards, 2000 meters, etc. than 2500 yards, 2187 yards, etc.
