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.

Scroll down to “Units.” It’s under APP SETTINGS. In the unit settings, “English” refers to Imperial measurements (miles, feet, lbs etc) while metric unsurprisingly refers to metric measurements (km, meters, kg etc).

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!

    1. You’re welcome! Glad it helped. It’s our responsibility to make our features easy to find, so look out for more short pieces like this that highlight Pacer’s features and settings.
