Changing your Pacer Units (miles/km) – a guide for Android & iOS

Hey Pacers! Do you need to change your Pacer default measurements from metric to English/Imperial measurements (miles/feet/lbs to km/m/kg)? If so, it’s quick and easy to do in Pacer Settings.

If you haven’t downloaded the Pacer app yet, download Pacer now for free (on mobile)! You can also check out our website (mobile or desktop) or follow our blog for more great walking and healthy lifestyle tips.

Here’s how to change for both iOS and Android:

Change Measurements in Android:

Go to Me -> Settings

New and settings

Start by going to the “Me” page by tapping “Me” at the bottom of your screen. Then tap “Settings,” the little gear icon at the top right. This will take you to our settings page.

Find “Unit Format” under “App Settings”

Scroll down to “Unit Format.” It’s under APP SETTINGS. Click the word in blue on the right side of the screen (English or Metric).

Select your new unit setting

In the unit settings, “English” refers to Imperial measurements (miles, feet, lbs etc) while metric unsurprisingly refers to metric measurements (km, meters, kg etc). Click the circle next to the measurement units that you want.

Return to the main page

The unit type that is highlighted in blue is the one that is currently active. To change to the other, click on the name of the other unit type. It will change to blue, and you’ll have changed units.

In the example above, Metric is currently selected. Click on English and you’ll see English turn blue and Metric revert to the background gray. That’s how you know that your new units are selected.

    1. I added some links to our app on the iOS App Store and Google Play store on the top of the page. If you refresh, you should see them now. The app name is a bit different on Google Play because it helps more people find our app. I’ll add some links to future posts so it’s easy to find Pacer!
