How to Change Distance Units from Miles to KM on Apple Watch Workout App

How to Change Distance Units on Apple Watch Workout

Apple Watch has primarily been criticized as a shadow of iPhone as the smartwatch is not able to perform many functions on its own. For three major functions of iPhone – make & receive calls, send & receive messages, and send & receive emails – the Apple Watch has to rely on the primary source, i.e. iPhone.

However, barring these few minuses, Apple Watch has received good response from users worldwide. Health conscious people have a special liking for this smartwatch as it boasts an excellent health app that helps you measure all your fitness activities.

For regular runners and joggers, measuring the distance is crucial as it is in direct proportion to the calorie they lose every day. But not everybody likes to measure the distance in miles; apart from the United Kingdom and the United States, where distance is measured in miles, most of the world uses kilometer as the measurement unit. Apple Watch, by default, measures distance in miles and therefore, you need to change distance unit from mile to kilometer on your Apple Watch workout.
